Starving in China

Posted in uncategorized by Nathan Creitz on July 8, 2008

Did you know that in some parts of China it’s considered rude to clean your plate? Take that moms everywhere!

I wonder if there are moms in China saying to their children, “You cleaned your plate!? There are children cleaning their plates in America. Next time, leave some on your plate.”
Apparently, to clean your plate is to say that you weren’t given enough to eat and that you wish you had been given more.
How ironic.
