Imagine an instructor getting accused of teaching somewhere and then berating ski patrol and any other officials for that long. Obviously at some point they have to end it right? I really do not see how this sets China apart from anywhere else. Anyone remember the video of Taos patrollers tackling a snowboarder a bunch of years ago?
I couldn't hear all of it and my chinese isn't great, but he was basically trying to convince them that they aren't a payment relationship and I'm not taking money, but we are just friends, and friends teaching friends what's wrong with that. (appealing to the concept, rather then reinforcing evidence on his specific situation).
And I think the other folks are believing that he isn't getting paid as much as one believes a pothead arguing about the medicinal benefits of pot; or a teenager with 200gigs of music on his ipod trying to argue that bittorrent is good for legal downloads and distributing indie music.
The patrol dude jumps ahead with the accusation and says loaded questions like "So how many lessons have you taught"; so both a liar or a truthteller can do nothing but double down and state his same explanation louder and angrier of "friends can't teach friends, why not?" since that basic premise of his explanation doesn't seem to be getting heard. That's why it sounds like he's replying with anger.
I have no idea what's going on with Enforcer dude.
