Life as an expat in China can be crazy. Today, someone I know sent me a text message which read “they’re going to kill me, helpppp” and yes it had the three extra P’s on the end. After reaching him on the phone, he explained that someone who had a beef with him tried to run him over with a car, then sent 4 thugs chasing after him. “They’re trying to kill me, this is like a movie or something,” was how he described it. After hopping a fence, he made it to a public mall where he felt safe. He wanted me to call the American Embassy for help, which I did, and ended up talking with the duty officer for 15 minutes. P.S. This is not a joke or exaggeration. Just life in China.
UPDATE: The circumstances leading up to the situation had to do with a shady business situation, and I won’t go into any more detail than that….
