Update, 11:24 pm: Bumped original video down in lieu of the above, which is slightly longer and in higher definition.
A young woman got into a fight with subway security last Friday at Beijing Subway’s Changping Line. According to the video description, the scuffle began when she refused to put her bag through the X-ray machine, reportedly saying, “My bag costs twenty-fucking-thousand bucks, can you afford to touch it?” She then began cursing the poor security guards, with her male companion joining in.
Okay, context time: security check at Beijing subway is unnecessary, and as we’ve seen before, easily bypassed. But for crying out loud, it takes, what, 30 seconds to go through it, max? Throwing your bag into the scanner adds, on average, like five seconds to your travel time. Also, the people who work next to these machines usually are wide-eyed trainees who hate their jobs more than you hate yours, so why give them any grief? Does it really make you feel better about yourself? How shitty must your life be, and how low your self-esteem? Put your bag through the damn scanner like everyone else.
Later, the woman reportedly yelled, “I’ll fucking call my daddy to kill you.” When more security guards (chengguan?) came, a fight began, during which a cop’s arm was bitten. (All of this is still according to the video description, so take it with a grain of salt.)
We’re not sure whether the bag-carrying woman is a fu’erdai — a second-generation rich — but let’s see… rich accessory? Check. Brattiness and flaunting? Check. A threat to call on a parent to do her dirty work? Check. We’re gonna go ahead and tag this one fu’erdai.
