Xiao Wang is a businessman who started his career late. Last year, he ran into a big problem; when he was stuck, his old friend helped him out. When it was time to go to the States to make a new deal, this friend saw him off at the airport to wish him a safe and smooth journey. Xiao Wang sighed, "The saying is true—after a long way, you will know your horse's strength; after a long time you'll know your friend's sincerity."
Zhang San, having not completed his studies, is an idle guy. He likes to frequent the brothel and often puts off paying his bill. The other day, he was beaten up by the boss's hitmen and made headlines everywhere. Now since everyone hates him, wherever he goes, he's like a rat crossing the street.
