A foreigner in Chengdu was caught yesterday having a “bad China day” on the road.
In dashcam footage, the man on an unregistered motorcycle is seen waiting in the turning lane of a busy intersection before deciding to go another direction. He backs his motorbike up, carelessly bumping into the car behind him.
The driver of the car then honks at him to get his attention, assuming that he would want to check if there was any damage. Instead, the foreigner responds simply by giving the driver the middle finger.
In response, the driver inches forward to block the foreigner in and gets out of his car to confront him. The foreigner then reportedly told the driver to call the police if he had a problem and refused to apologize, even spitting at his car. For his coup de grâce, the foreigner cursed out the driver in the local Chengdu dialect while speeding off.
Talking to reporters afterward, the driver said that he was shocked by how the foreigner had made such a minor incident into a big fuss. Of course, some netizens have also pointed out how this incident would not have gone viral if it didn’t involve a foreigner.
