Office Pet


In China you can make a living just from being white. Just sit around at an office/meeting/bar/you name it and be white, all because white people are pretty rare and exotic in China.

These people are often referred to as "pets" because they are told what to do and how to dress, but have no real purpose other than to hang around and just exist, yet cost money.

I regard this as the ultimate existential affirmation: to get paid for BEING.

Wait, why do people say people of color are exotic, when in reality white people are the rare ones??

2 questions. How much? and is being able to speak Chinese a requirement?

I mean... it sounds nice, but at the same time "told what to do and how to dress" sounds quite bad. Kind of like being a prostitute without the sex XD
Also, 300th comment! Whoop whoop! (I have no life...)

Actually white people are not rare in big city like Shanghai in China, but Scandinavian are. I had never meet a Scandinavian before I joined a Danish company. Well, well, we do treat foreigners well because they are rare. We hope they won't feel homesick, they could get used to Chinese food, culture and they can enjoy their stay here. :)
