Now that you have read the rules, imagine they are applied in everyday life in Shanghai.

Every day, without really realizing it, I partipe the game of the chair. Whether at the supermarket, mail or even better in transit (besides this place is even worse) I “play” or rather I am forced to play musical chairs.

You could see the joy on his face that he had not completely lost the battle.
