A Chinese Man Killed Himself At A Shopping Mall Because His Girlfriend Wouldn’t Stop Shopping

Here’s a cautionary tale for all of you guys who may be forced to go shopping during the holidays with your girlfriend — it can drive one to embrace death as an alternative, apparently.

Reports the Daily Mail:

CCTV shows Tao Hsiao, 38, escorting his girlfriend around a shopping mall in Xuzhou, Jiangsu
province, east China. After five hours Tao finally had enough and demanded to go home.

Eyewitnesses say he could be heard saying they already had more bags than they could carry, but she insisted on going into one more shop where the was a special offer on shoes.

An eyewitness said: ‘He told her she already had enough shoes, more shoes that she could wear in a
lifetime and it was pointless buying any more. She started shouting at him accusing him of being a skinflint and of spoiling Christmas, it was a really heated argument.’

The shouting match ended when the man chucked the bags on the floor and jumped over the balcony, smashing into Christmas decorations on his way down before hitting the floor seven stories below causing shocked shoppers to flee in panic.

Just stay home and watch football, fellas. It’s for your own good.
