Christmas shopping can be pretty grueling; the long lines, the crowds, getting punched in the face for a set of Walmart towels. Sadly it seems that one man in China ended it all, rather than have to endure one more moment shopping for shoes with his girlfriend. Any guy who has set foot in a busy mall on a Saturday in December knows the feeling; “If I don’t get out of this store, I’m going to kill myself!” Tao Hsiao took this feeling literally when he jumped seven floors to his death in the middle of the Golden Eagle International Shopping Center in Xuzhou, China. At least he died with his dignity.
So just remember guys, the next time your lady friend wants to “go in one more store” tell her the legend of poor Tao Hsiao, the man in China who killed himself rather than go shoe shopping with his girlfriend. If your lady still wants to go shoe shopping, well then, at least you know where you stand.
