That's what they do all the time, pretend that they do not understand. But in your case, there's no excuse that they do not understand when they are in America so for sure they understand English.

Totally clueless, selfish driving habits!
Never really had anyone cut or push in front of me in line but after reading this ^^^^^
geez, do they have to take a driving test when they come here for college or to live?
How do they past the driving exam because they do drive like no one else is on the road.
I've had several near misses averting a major accident.

It's just depend on personal personality, you can't blame all Chinese are that way. Just like you can't blame all Mexican are border crosser.

How does that become everyone though? You just need a few bad actors to get a bad impression, but to span that to everybody (over a billion people of wildly varying backgrounds and habits) doesn't make much sense and would be better described as simply racist.

This is common with old school Chinese in my area. We do not realize this but the first come first served idea does not exit for them...nor does the concept of a straight line. I could be in China town waiting for my turn with the butcher. An old Chinese lady will step up..size you up and see if you are a nice person who would not harm them...then they simply step in front of you..They kind of ask permission to butt in.

Middle eastern men are the worst for cutting the line. They think just because its their country they think they don't have to stand in a line behind infields.

Wow, what a brilliant deduction. But over 11 million are border crosser. Dud!

Racist ? No I am not. So what am I going to say, some Chinese ? When everyday it seems to happen to me, in the supermarket when I have to weigh the vegie and fruits, counter, lifts, and worst when I try to get a cab and for so many times already, I am already about to open the door of the cab, and someone still goes there to put herself in front of me. That doesn't happen in other countries.
I don't know about Chinese in other countries. Chinese in the Philippines do not cut in line. But for me , mainland Chinese really do like it is just a normal thing to do... Old and young do it , most of the time , ones who get the cab intended for me are young women in their 20's, so it is really very annoying because they should already know more that it is very rude and disrespectful but they still keep doing it.
There are many foreigners that I know who are saying the same thing. But it's just like that, it is just a normal thing for them.
