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."


Stupid spoil women the tragic she cause over some stupid shoes is it possible for women to get that superficial that's why I hate christmas

@ Pris

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 :- (


He shoulda threw her & those shoes over the balcony!
