Man Commits Suicide in Response to Girlfriend's Excessive Shopping

Ready for another shocking story out of China?

This one does not involve a husband suing his estranged wife for giving him an ugly child. Nor does it have anything to do with a man attempting a vaginal exorcism with his penis.

Instead, it centers on a very extreme reaction to a very common situation.

According to Chinese television station CCTV, a 38-year old named Tao Hsiao was arguing with his girlfriend over the weekend inside a mall in Jiangsu province.

Onlookers overheard him telling the unnamed companion that she had already bought enough, with one witness saying:

"He told her she already had enough shoes, more shoes that she could wear in a lifetime and it was pointless buying any more."

But the girlfriend simply shouted back, accusing her man of "spoiling Christmas" and a "heated argument" ensued.

The man then proceeded to have the final (ever) say by throwing his shopping bags on the floor and jumping over a balcony, plummeting seven stories to his death.

"His body was removed fairly quickly," said a mall spokesman. "This is a tragic incident, but this time of year can be very stressful for many people."

Hey Pris - you are just as ignorant as the ignorant man who jumped to his death over a pair of shoes. It is not this woman's fault that he jumped over a balcony because she wanted a pair of shoes. For anyone who wants to blame this woman for that, you should go and join the idiot who jumped in the first place. Over a pair of shoes???? Seriously????

What he meant to do was to do the reverse: Throw the shopping bag over the balcony and throw himself to the floor, in a temper tantrum....He had a condition called, "dyslexia" in which one sees things in reverse...Poor thing! RIP :- (
