Not for all the Tea in China

[Not entirely travel related. But I feel this would have gone another way if I were in an English speaking country.]
This morning I went to the Breakfast buffet in my hotel. I'm on work time now, so I can afford fancy things like buffets.
There was hard boiled eggs near the chinese food and then they were making fried eggs over near the American food. There was also a bowl of hard boiled eggs next to where they were frying. I grabbed one and the two guys looked at me. Ghastly. As if to say "WTF is this guy doing?". I went back to my seat and started eating and after I finished everything, I cracked the hard boiled egg.
It was not boiled
It was their supply of eggs for frying.
To top it off, I got dropped off at the intersection of my work at 9am - right on time. I walked around for an hour and a half looking for Novartis. No one spoke english. There were hundreds of people walking around and no one could tell me where to go. I finally found a white woman at 10:30 who told me where I needed to go.
