    I hate shopping. The shopping part would be OK if it weren't for the people. :P

    Man Leaps to His Death in Shopping Mall After Girlfriend Insists on More Shopping

    CHINA - a 38-year-old man leaped to his death after an argument with his girlfriend who insisted they continue shopping. CCTV captured Tao Hsiao and his girlfriend in a mall in Xuzhou, Jiangsu province, east China where they had reportedly been shopping for five hours or so before he hit his limit.

    Eyewitnesses said Hsiao could be heard telling his girlfriend that they already had more bags than they could carry, but she insisted on hitting 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 argument continued until Hsiao threw the bags on the floor and himself over the balcony, dropping seven stories to his death and smashing Christmas decorations on the way down. He was killed on impact.

    Ladies go shopping.

    Men go purchasing.

    There's a difference.

    Never the twain shall meet, unless absolutely necessary, and then, it needs to be kept to an absolute minimum time exposure possible.

    Why do women think men enjoy shopping?

    Shop it on the internet, find a store that has what I want, run in, buy it, back out in 15 minutes. Just get. out. of. my way.

    I hate shopping.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    New flash (now hold onto your horses this might blow your mind), just because you are ran by a certain party (in this case communist) does not make your country that parties "claimed" ideology. Hell i dont even think the CPC claims to be communist anymore.
