While commuters in Wuhan got to enjoy the enticing aromas of garlic on their way home from work yesterday, those in Shanghai got a whiff of another different but still distinctive stench.
One evening this week, a man was spotted on a Shanghai Metro Line 1 carriage using a pair of scissors to cut a raw pig heart, much to the surprise and then displeasure of fellow passengers.
It may come as a surprise to some, but this is not something that you’re supposed to do on the metro. In fact, Shanghai subway rules explicitly forbid passengers from carrying around items with strong odors inside the carriages. And we’d say that raw pig heart qualifies under this stipulation.
It’s not clear who the man is or where he is from, but presumably he would get along quite well with one Wuhan auntie who peeled a whole batch of garlic inside a crowded metro carriage yesterday evening. Both of them being well aware of the importance of multitasking and saving time.
