@_-冰翼-_: The Most Honest Portrait of a Civil Servant. Eating a pear that has already been peeled/pared for him, leisurely using the computer, the public hotline telephone receiver placed to a side off the hook [preventing calls from coming in]. [弱]

Comments from Sina Weibo:

伊布儿:

Who is it?

JackyD8084:

Everyone forward/reshare this!!! [怒][怒][怒]

给点阳光就灿烂:

Indeed, departments like the housing management department or planning department, you can call an entire morning and not get through, presumably because it is all handled like this!

老记宋军:

Make public the time, place, and name. Have her go home [be dismissed]. This kind of lousy woman, she should not be allowed to take and enjoy the ordinary common people’s blood and sweat money.

杰克老虎:

Human flesh search this kind of garbage.

同是后山人:

Mobilize the power of the masses, human flesh search, human flesh search, and human flesh search some more. We absolutely must have this kind of scum go to hell, vermin that happily suck the blood of the people. My god, and it’s a woman too. Going to work sure is comfortable!

安防李洪波:

Make it public, why are you just photographing them, though granted they are government-raised dogs.

不停蹄的错过:

No wonder people fight to take the exams to become a civil servant. What an easy and comfortable [job/lifestyle]…

魔刀侠影HA:

So the line being busy is because of this, haha.

风啸啸啸:

I don’t dare say all of them, but at least 60% of civil servants are like this.

雪域心结:

No longer strange, I often see them playing computer games during working hours.

牛魔王他妹夫: (responding to above)

Those that are playing computer games are the losers/good-for-nothings [low position], the leaders [those in higher positions] are all busy having sex [with mistresses or prostitutes]!

美帝不仗义:

We genuinely love this country and we’re criticizing/complaining only because this country has been ruined by these people. Just what character and what ability do these people have to govern/manage/run this country? Why should we taxpayers provide for a group of people like this?

报彩虹:

Too commonplace/widespread. It is rats like these that will collapse China.

qq99qq99qq:

When was this? With high temperatures throughout the entire nation, why is she wearing long-sleeves and a blouse? How low is the air conditioner set?

时差雪:

No wonder it’s always a busy signal, so abominable.

新新绿茶:

Softly says: During the noon/lunch break, isn’t this normal?

潘梦发:

I suspect it is no longer possible for her to take that ring off her fat finger…

Fauna is a mysterious young Shanghainese girl who lives in the only place a Shanghainese person would ever want to live: Shanghai. In mid-2008, she started chinaSMACK to combine her hobby of browsing Chinese internet forums with her goal of improving her English. Through her tireless translation of popular Chinese internet news and phenomenon, her English has apparently gotten dramatically better. At least, reading and writing-wise. Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.
