No cutting out on credibility for hairdresser


08:30, November 15, 2012

NANJING, Nov. 14 (Xinhua) -- When hairdresser Ma Yujian was diagnosed of late-stage lung cancer two weeks ago, his first reaction was to tell his customers so they could have their prepaid money back.

He put up a notice on the glass door of his workshop in a downtown community in Nanjing, capital of east China's Jiangsu Province, reminding his clients to come and get their money before he closed his business on Monday.

Ma's action won him applause from the public as business owners far too often pack up and run with customers' prepaid money.

The news of Ma's illness has been tweeted thousands of times at, China's most popular Twitter-like microblogging service, since Sunday. Many of his customers refused to take their money back and wanted to help pay for his medication.
