Need A Summer Sublet? Must Speak Chinese

We thought we’d seen it all when it comes to Rosengarten bathroom stalls. But then we found this in the Ladies’ room.

Our Chinese interpreter is unfortunately on sabbatical, but we’ll do your homework if you can translate for us! Also, fairly certain Chestnut is a “Street” not an “Ave.”

You don’t know what it says yet you’ll gladly post it on the internet with the phone number visible?

I think you can show a bit more couth than that.

And by Chinese student, I mean student studying Chinese, not student from China (though I am of Chinese heritage).

So what is so phenomenal about this?? If you saw something like this in Spanish…or let’s say Hebrew…would it be: “we though we’d seen it all…”

Some would consider this to be light-hearted fun, others would consider this to be objectification of the Chinese language.

Either way I hope this is just a reflection of a lack of material to blog about and not utter amazement over a piece of paper with Chinese on it.

What difference does it make if the phone number is visible on here? Whoever posted the flyer in the first place gladly displayed their information to the public bathroom-goers in vp, so I think that makes it fair game for anyone else.

Calm your tits.

It’s funny because they are only reaching the portion of subletters that happen to speak Chinese…. whether they just weren’t thinking or they only want Chinese subletters, it’s still funny. I doubt the blogger thought just seeing Chinese letters was funny; going to Penn, we see that all the time. I highly doubt it was “objectification of the Chinese language”. Chill out.

hey wow, go cry some more about the “objectification of Chinese subletters”. What a joke.

Looks like everyone needs to chill out, not just the person concerned about objectifying Chinese subletters. I don’t understand the need to be so rude and immature on a blog.
