Frustrated boyfriend jumps to his death after heated argument over 5 hours of shopping

shop-till-you-drop“Tao Hsiao, 38, jumped to his death after a very heated argument with his girlfriend who insisted they go keep on shoppin in Xuzhou, Jiangsu province, east China.  After five hours Tao finally had enough and demanded to go home.

Eyewitnesses say he could be heard saying they already had more bags than they could carry, but she insisted on going into one more shop where the was a special offer on shoes. ‘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 shouting match ended when the man chucked the bags on the floor and jumped over the balcony, smashing into Christmas decorations on his way down before hitting the floor seven stories below causing shocked shoppers to flee in panic.

I shouldn’t be saying this, but I have a feeling “shop ’till you drop” was taken literally this time. But if that didn’t impress you already, this unintentional fail probably will:


Nice one Xbox One, jump ahead. Well, the thing with this screencap is that I wasn’t able to recreate the floating banners, they didn’t show up on my end, so who knows if this OP made it up.
