A Chinese guy was taking a taxi tour of London and was in a hurry. As they went by the Tower of London the taxi driver explained what it was and that construction of it started in 1346 and was completed in 1412.
The Chinese replied, “Seriously? A little old tower like that? In Shangai we’d have that thing up in two weeks!”
Next they passed the House of Parliament – started in 1544 and completed in 1618.
“Well Mr. , we put up a bigger one than that in Shenzhen and it only took a year!”
As they passed Westminster Abbey the taxi driver was silent.
“Wow! What’s that over there?” asked the Chinese.
The chauffeur replied, “I don’t know, it wasn’t there yesterday.”
