Shopping malls. Dangerous places for all men. You have been warned, ladies.

Man jumps seven storeys after fight with girlfriend

(From Yahoo, Daily Mail and others)

A Chinese shopper has tragically taken his life after he couldn’t bear to enter another shop with his girlfriend.

Witnesses said the man leapt to his death at a popular shopping centre after getting into an argument with his partner.

Tao Hsiao had been shopping with his girlfriend for five hours.

Despite already carrying a large number of bags, the woman insisted that they go into one more store where there was a sale 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 pair argued until Hsiao dropped the bags he was carrying and jumped over the rail, falling seven storeys through Christmas ornaments.

Authorities said the man died immediately on impact when he hit the floor.

A shopping spokesman said: “His body was removed fairly quickly. He actually landed on one of the stalls below and then fell to the floor so although the store was damaged it meant he didn’t hit anybody.”

“This is a tragic incident, but this time of year can be very stressful for many people.”


Memo to Mrs Wellthisiswhatithink: a few new pairs of socks is fine, thanks.

    Firstly – massive demerit points for going shopping in the first place.

    Secondly – five hours shopping is outrageous and clearly there was something ‘wrong’ with him anyway ….

    I’m always amazed when I see women shopping, accompanied by some poor bloke displaying the kind of enjoyment one normally associates with facing root canal.

    Here’s a thought – if you have inherited the shopping gene and your partner hasn’t, find another shopping companion. You’ll both enjoy it more. It also gives you much more scope for pretending that you didn’t go overboard on the spending, when in fact your visa balance resembles the GDP of a small nation.

    And guys, if you are in this position, how about you grow a pair and stand up for yourself! “Honey, I love you dearly but I really don’t want to cramp your style. You go and enjoy yourself and later you can model for me everything that you bought.”


  3. Can’t say as I blame the Fella . Someone should have intervened though and taken him to the craftsman tool section or a sporting goods store to recapture his mojo.
