Last year the economy was not good. More and more people came to the village to play mahjong, and young people stopped working hard. The village chief thought for a long time, and felt that he had to take care of these people. It just so happened that the village spent a lot of relief on the villagers last year, and a lot of white sticks should be paid back. Decided to increase the fee for playing mahjong from one cent per game to one cent. The villagers who play mahjong must not be happy, many people just quit, saying that they would go to the next village to play mahjong. The chess and card room in the beautiful village next door is pretty good at doing business, and immediately announced the reduction of mahjong fees from one cent to nine cents per game. This rise and fall has indeed attracted many young people. The Mahjong stall at the entrance of the village is indeed deserted a lot. But within two days, the people who went to the next village to play mahjong came back silently, and the village entrance resumed its excitement. When I asked them, they just said in a low voice that the mahjong game in the next village was different, and it was too far away. It took several hours to get there every day, and when they arrived there, they were about to close their stalls. On the way back to the village, they suddenly figured it out. Anyway, when they are lucky, a game of mahjong can earn dozens of them. It is not a big deal to pay the village a few cents.
