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

    Good lord I get it, I really do. Been there, maybe even jokingly thought about doing it. But wow. Just wow. Best quote from the article? "This is a tragic incident, but this time of year can be very stressful for many people."

    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.

    Jeez man.

    Sounds like something out of Six Feet Under.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I think if we all had a girlfriend and went shopping with them at one point in life we all probably thought about this at one point... Lets be honest now..

    Sometimes I can be somewhat morbid.

    And in this case I have to admit, at the first reading of the headline I laughed.

    But this is brietbart.com and I need confirmation.

    The Buddhist Chinese celebrate Christmas?

    ... but at least she has a ton of new shoes to wear on dates.

    Agreed. I had to take my daughters shopping the other day for stuff and one has to buy bra's for the first time. I found a nice worker lady to help her, gave my girl the credit card, sat down on a couch and played Hill Racer on my phone until they were done.
