A video showing a man arguing with commuters after his infant urinated on a train in Shanghai has been going viral on the Internet.

In the six-minute long video, which has a lot of vulgarities, a man in grey could be seen engaging in a heated exchange with several people after his child’s urine landed on some of the passengers.

The man, who was visibly furious, defended himself saying the child is still young.

But a lady argued that while she could forgive the infant as he’s innocent, the onus should be on the father to ensure that the child at least urinates into a bag.

She then threatened to call the police if the father hits her.

After a while, the man did a flying kick.

The commotion on the Shanghai train lasted for close to six minutes, and at the ending of the video, the father and another man were seen calling some people to go over to “back up".

Seeing this, the child’s mother told the father, “If you have the guts, fight yourself, why are you calling people to help?”

While this may be a case that allegedly took place in China itself, Chinese tourists have been fast gaining a bad reputation overseas.

So seven college students from Guangzhou recently launched a campaign to shame Chinese tourists into behaving better.

They cycled over 3,000 kilometres to Beijing to exhibit 100 photographs of vandalism done by Chinese on tourist attractions.

More recently, Chinese tourists have been in the news for refusing to hand over 30 sets of stainless steel tableware while onboard a Singapore Airlines flight.

Meanwhile, photos of a small boy urinating into a rubbish bin in an upscale Canadian shopping mall have also been circulating online.

The photos show an Asian boy, with his pants around his knees, held by a woman as he stood on the top of the bin, at the Richmond Centre mall in Vancouver.

It’s not the first time that the Chinese have courted controversy when they allow their children to relieve themselves anywhere they please.

Back in 2010, a Chinese woman let her child pass motion in front of a store in an upscale shopping mall in Hong Kong, which caused quite a stir in the city.

    I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.

    I have committed a taboo – I have tendered my resignation without securing the next job. The reactions to the announcement were varied but they all pretty much hint at a deep sense of disapproval. “Why did you do that?” It was as if I had renounced my faith. “What are you going to do from now on?” Almost as though a misfortune had incapacitated me. “What does your family have to say about it?” As if I had offered to cook for the next family dinner. I was, and still am, certain of my reasons and motivations for the resignation. However the response I received got me thinking about why people are so concerned about the gaps in their careers. The developed world evolved from an agricultural economy to an industrial economy to the service age, then to the knowledge economy in the late 1990s and 2000s marked by breakthroughs in technological innovations and competition for innovation with new products and processes that develop from the research community.
