Perfect Strangers

On the train trip back from Shanghai yesterday, a Chinese local sat down next to JM for the last half hour of the ride. Within 10 minutes, he pretty much asked all the basics:

1) What is your name?
2) What country are you from?
3) Where do you work?
4) What is your monthly salary?
5) Are you married?
6) Do you have kids?
7) How many will you have?
8) Where is your apartment?
9) How old are you?
10) What’s your religion?
11) What’s your phone number?

Having grown so accustomed to these kinds of questions, JM answered them all, except for the last one. The Chinese man was satisfied with just getting an email address instead!
