To help, or not to help?

Of course you help. I've helped before and I'm proud to say that my son, when he was still a teenager, helped an old man who was lost and wandering the streets. He had Alzheimer's and didn't know where he lived. My son was shocked that people weren't helping. He was asking other people for help or directions and not many wanted to help. I find that deplorable. Thank goodness he did find the man's home, and his daughter was very grateful. That poor man was tired, confused and scared and people acted as if they were afraid of him.

What surprised you the most in China? Should Chinese care about "face"? Laowai, is the term offensive?
