    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.



    I don't believe that I'll ever do what this poor guy did but I totally understand what was going through his head.

    I wonder if his girlfriend learned anything from this sad experience.

    I can say I felt like that many times. I hate shopping. I go into a store, get exactly what I need and get the heck out. Any shopping more than 10-15 minutes is shopping way too much. If the wife wants to shop, she goes with one of our daughters, not with me. I am good at letting loose my chickman's call right there in the middle of the store if I figure we had been there long enough.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    She's a woman, I highly doubt it.

    If as many people did it as thought about it the undertakers would be pretty busy.

    I agree.

    She probably spent the rest of that day shopping for some shoes to wear to the guy's funeral.

    Yep, she probably bought a dress too.

    That's where you can find me when my wife goes shoe shopping.
