To get the shaft. To get screwed over / the short end of the stick.
Mr. Abraham thought he had the chair ties ordered, but then got ning boed by the supplier
A medium-size city in China
, located entirely too far away from Shanghai. Everything in Ningbo closes after 10pm. There are eight bars for foreigners, seven of which suck. Ningbonese constantly stare at anyone who's not from China, and give them lousy service and high prices. Ningbo is also known as stinktown
, due to the cloud of pollution that hangs over the city. Just living here is like smoking a pack of cigarettes a day.
Let's get the hell out of Ningbo for the weekend!
