I often get texts from well-meaning friends reminding me to 多穿一点衣服 when the weather gets even a little bit more cool. Thankfully none of them have started sending me reminders to get up slowly from the toilet.

It’s funny how that kind of thing is just so completely “foreign” (for want of a better word) to many western countries. I remember reading about a Chinese guide who worked in the U.K. temporarily. He had to accompany some elderly folk on a tour and said it was a nightmare because everything he said to try be polite made them unhappy. Things like wear more clothes, sit and have a rest for a bit, etc
