The missus got an afternoon off work and a red packet (only 50kuai, mind). When will us men get this?!
I think in China "Mens' Day" is the other 364 days a year.
Great! Can't wait to get my red packets!
I'm just suggesting that because it's still a strongly patriarchal society in full swing, men glean certain benefits on a daily basis. Actually, everyday, including Womens' Day, is probably a better day to be a man here. Let's say a lady gets the 50 Yuan on Women's Day. Do you think a man might get 1,500 yuan more a year, including through bribes and whatnot? That would be more than 50 yuan in a day.
But you're right, we won't be getting daily red envelopes. And it would be nice. To be honest, I'd like it delivered in the mid morning by a different pretty girl every day. I'll have to settle with just having the cards really stacked in my favor in this country.
