A Funny Story
Here's the original Chinese version:
The bank manager was smiling and happy because his loos in the CINOPEC shares are now covered by this robbery. This is called "Seizing the opportunity -- daring to take risks!"
The next day the news on TV reported 100 million RMB was stolen from the bank. The robbers counted and counted and counted, but they could only count 20 million RMB. The robbers were very angry and complained, "We risked our lives and only stole 20 million RMB while the bank manager took 80 million RMB with the snap of his fingers! It looks like it is better to be educated to be a thief!" This is called "Knowledge is worth as much as gold".
"The supervisor says, "It will be good if there is a robbery every month." This is called "Killing boredom -- happiness is most important".
After the robbers left, the bank manager told the bank supervisor to call the police quickly. The supervisor said, "Wait wait wait! Let's put the 5 million RMB we embezzled into the amount the robbers stole!" This is called "Swim with the tide -- converting an unfavourable situation to your advantage".
When the robbers got back, the younger robber (MBA trained), told the older robber (only primary school educated), "Big brother, let's count how much we got," but the other robber rebutted and said, "You are very stupid. There's so much money, how can we count it all? Tonight the TV will tell us how much we robbed from the bank!" This is called "Experience -- nowadays experience is more important than paper qualifications".
One woman lay on the table provocatively and the robber shouted at her, "Please be civilized! This is a robbery, not a rape!" This is called "Being Professional -- focus only on what you are trained to do".
Everyone in the bank laid down quietly. This is called "Mind Changing Concept -- changing the conventional way of thinking".
We came across this story which jokingly sums up what is happening with China today:There was a robbery in Guangzhou and the robber shouted to everyone: "All don't move. The money belongs to the state, life belongs to you."
