There is a European intern who joined company recently. He just graduated from college and will work in the company in China for the next three months.
He doesn't read or speak Chinese, so when I took him for lunch everyday I ordered for both of us. At first, he paid his portion to me afterwards; but in the last two weeks, he hasn't mentioned the lunch money at all.
I never asked him for the money because it's not in the Chinese culture to do so and it's not THAT much money. But still I feel a little weird. Is this normal? Is he being a jerk? How should I proceed with this situation?
PS: I asked the intern "do you want to go to lunch" in English at lunch time, just to be clear.
