Tonys English-learning diary 3 - Tony Wong - MapleRipples
 
Street people, usually refer to those without a stable place called "home", they are often poor or have bohemian lifestyle. Hmmm... today I'd like to share with my friends some other kinds of street people - people who work on the streets.

Have you ever had the awkward moment when you were walking into a theater for a Hollywood blockbuster, and you were afraid the tickets were sold out, until you heard someone walking by you furtively muttering "Hey! You want tickets? I've got tickets!". Haha, yeah, you must had that moment. Those people are call scalpers. In Chinese they are called 黃牛. Scalpers buy tickets in advance and resell them at a higher price.

Hawkers, compared with scalpers, are people who carry goods from place to place to sell them. They are more like urban guerrilla fighters moving and selling. Another important job for hawkers is to get rid of the police, or in China, 城管.
