You have to be direct:
"ni3 zhi1 dao4 zen3me pai4 dui4 ma?"
hehe, it seems you also have to learn how to say "I don't really speak chinese but I got that phrase just for you queue-jumpers"... I mean: What happens if after you say your "slight humiliation" phrase and they reply in chinese (perhaps also in a friendly way) which you don't understand? hmmm that would make anyone look silly...
1. For starters you dont often have to be in a queue with chinese people.
2. If you close up the space in front, no one will jump the queue (especially if you're that tall).
- - - "ni3 zhi1 dao4 zen3me pai4 dui4 ma?"
That means "Do you know how to party?"
oops! I meant "pai2 dui4"
Thankyou for teaching another way to say party though. I only knew 聚会 before
Hahahahahaha ... it depends on the individual ... and the "distance" ...
I will consider that this person cannot be taught a lesson, but, I can still have some fun with him/her ...
Then if the person, whether male or female, is right in front of me, I will laugh ... starting with a giggle, and then laugh louder and louder ... I found that this is a good way to release the "anger" while also creating a fear in the other person's mind, as he/she has no idea what this is about ...
Yeah... I know ... this is creepy ...
just simply and directly say "ni hao,pai dui!"
I'm old enough...to party. Although someone told me that pai4 dui4 isn't really a "common" way to say party, and that ju4 hui4 is more common. But whatdoIknow. The only time I've ever said anything to someone cutting in line, it was just like "EHHHH?", which is apparently universal for "you're a dick".
la di da day
we like to pai dui
if the jumper cut from right in front of me, I'll say "我好象在你前面吧？" and wait for his/her response. if it comes out to be kind, we are cool. if it comes out to be rude, "赶紧滚蛋!" is my response. if the jumper cut the line from other places and it seems that no one's care, well, I'll play the bad guy.
well, one-on-one or one-on-two is fine for me, but if obvious the jumper gets many friends, I'll say nothing...亡命徒也要命不是
Tina: Then he answers " Sorry, I am not pai dui, You've got a wrong person. Im XX. Nice to meet you. Are you trying to seduce me?"
haha,.ROKOIOKO.i didn't think about that,since you brought up this possibility that the jumper is trying to play a fool and disrespect us, we need at least get ready for it, so we could probably say :
You are not even on my list to be seduced,so GET IN THE LINE AND WAIT!
I'm not strong, in the US, I'm just the average. And you don't want to fight in the US, cops will arrest you, and dudes you are fighting with may have guns. so comparatively it's safer to have a fight in China, esp. in Beijing isn't it? they got no guns, cops don't care, then it's just for fun, haha
“赶紧滚蛋”is definitely the flame start a fight..........
I used to live in a city with almost no laowais in Shandong and I would sometimes say "中国人优先吗?" and it would work quite well. The bad thing about this is that other people in the queue would start talking to me or staring at me even more once they would hear that I can speak some chinese.
I do not believe that the people who don't pai dui care whether you are Chinese or not though.
well line jumping does nto happen much lately since the shalympics.
but if it does I will politely use my thumb and direct them to the back of the line
if someone tries still to get in front of me, then i well put my frame between them and the attendant.
if someone tries to put their money out over my shoulder or get serviced before me, i will physically push their arm away and tell them to wait their turn.
I am glad to see this final has changed in Beijing. i don't know about the rest of the country. but if you like to jump a line, please go to the usa and try it and see who says what.
line jumping in the states may get you heavily insulted or even get whacked by someone.
nobody likes this so its about time that people learned how to wait. For a long time, i got the impression that here nobody gave a fuck about waiting in line. but now its changed.
besides, with my schedule, i go to work, return or go shopping when most people are at their jobs. so lines don't usually exists ;)
@.rOkOIOkO. then I would suddenly become a gentleman and say 女士优先 and let them be first ;)
