Choose Wisely

After five years here, I still can't speak much Chinese, let alone read it.

So, what to do when, at the ATM, I was confronted by a screen full of Chinese characters, and the choice to "Exit" or "Confirm"?

Add to this that someone walked in and was waiting behind me (even as I was taking the picture).

Sometimes it's just a "we can't print a receipt" notice, or "be careful there's no one suspicious around."

But this one was a list of five items, ending in a special phone number.

I pressed "Confirm" and nothing bad happened.
