SuicideXuzhou, China — Apparently fed up with his girlfriend’s addiction to shoes and/or shopping, a 38-year-old man took a flying leap from the seventh floor balcony of the Golden Eagle International Shopping Center Saturday.

Tao Hsiao had apparently been shopping with his lady for five grueling hours that day, when she insisted that they check out just one more shoe store. I could seriously hear shrill whining as I wrote that sentence. Now I’m feeling a little stabby….

Witnesses reported hearing Hsiao saying the woman already had enough shoes — more than she could possibly wear in a lifetime. It was pointless to buy more. This apparently angered the footwear fanatic. Witnesses claim the woman started shouting, calling the man a skinflint and a Scrooge of sorts.

Hsiao was done. Done with her, done with her voice, and done friggin’ shopping. Security footage apparently shows him dropping the shopping bags in anger and jumping from the balcony.

Fortunately, no one broke his fall and the body was quickly removed from the scene. No word on whether the woman continued her shopping…..

Speaking of breaking someone’s fall, remember the suicidal woman that injured a 17-year-old boy when she took the same kind of leap in Queen’s Center Mall back in ’09? Why, yes, we did cover it! Glad you asked! Here, let me refresh your memory.

    Awesome! A two-fer! Thanks Jaded! 🙂

  • Laura_RT

    Can’t say I blame him; I’ve totally wanted to go suicidal while out shopping with my mom. That woman can (and has) reduce a hardcore shopper to tears with her marathons.

  • beatlechick

    Gives a whole new meaning to the term, “Shop til you Drop”!!

  • tkaz

    That’s why there’s benches in the mall.
    For husbands.

  • Andrea Pizzuto

    What a bitch. He was probably giving her the puppy dog eyes for hours. I can’t stand to see that for more than a couple minutes before I feel like I’m torturing him.

  • Gee

    I think had he had better damn senses, he would dropped the bags and tossed her dumb ass over the railing. Then sold all her shoes for a profit and lived happily ever after.

  • newstarshipsmell

    She probably insisted he lug all the heavy bags around with her. You know, so she could check her existing purchases against more clothes to see that they coordinate.

  • thebossessecretary

    I literally have to bribe my husband to go shopping with me. Literally. And the understood time limit is one hour. I don’t know why he minds. Every time I turn my back on him for a few seconds, I come back to find some new and different bitch talking with him.

    Shopping will never, ever be so damn important, or fulfilling, that I spend five hours at it! I’d rather watch slugs race. Two hours is the max I can stand to shop, after that things get bitchy and whiney, and I don’t mean Boyfriend…

  • Gee

    Perfect example of making a horrible decision based on a short term emotions….

  • link07

    I don’t go shopping with my wife, especially to “look” at shoes…nope find a friend with a x chromosome and a vagina to go with, unless she wants to see me sulking or pointing out the endless sea of shoes, and purses in our closest.

  • tkaz

    I never take my husband – he’s a buzz kill.
    I coordinate stuff better without him in my ear, “Do you REALLY need that?” No I don’t, but I WANT it dammit!!

  • tkaz

    As a teen, I could stay the entire day. But I was broke & all I was buying was a pretzel anyway so we just gossiped & tried on clothes.
    As an adult, I can do three hours, though I prefer two. I can shop. I AM a shopper. But as an adult the budget is even MORE strictly enforced & than I’m just teasing myself. 😛

  • tkaz

    Are you my husband???

  • link07


  • link07

    Maybe…coerced black friday walmart with the promise not to spend more than a certain amount? Afterwards leading to a money fight and me sleeping on a couch?

  • tkaz

    Nope. My husband would have divorced me if i suggested Black Friday.

  • Buffettgirl

    I loved it as a teen, now, it’s just time away from people I’d rather be with, or, conversely, time with people I want to be with in conditions that make it mildly awful. Mom takes too long and has to look at EVERYTHING while being around so many people that have their own agendas that leave no time for courtesy make Boyfriend cranky and in the end, I’m cranky too… plus the whole budget thing too! ;-p

  • Buffettgirl

    Awesomeness right there… ;-p

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    Every married man on the planet has been there & wanted to jump, the rest of us just didn’t have the balls to actually do it.

  • Texas Ranger

    You could probably fit all the shoes and boots I have ever purchased since my feet turned adult in those two bags he was totin. He Should have jumped BEFORE she spent all his money. Dudes….you gotta think ahead…..

  • Lena60

    Lmao ^5. I hate shopping too, thats why I do most of it online. 🙂

  • patrickdh10

    It’s a harsh buzz when the only way to escape the ole’ ball and chain is to jump off a ledge at 7 stories up. Had a brief encounter with a girl who,when mad,went into hysterics and her screaming,razor edged voice literally made the hair on your head stand up. Damn Banshees have infiltrated the population. Them and Bigfeets. That why that TV show never finds them.They hear them a lot and arrive on the scene after Bigfeets have left but they’ve yet to find a single one because they are here amongst us.

  • Leasha

    So he seriously died over this?? I pity the fool who dates his freshly single ex next.

  • LuvsHorror

    Why didn’t he just toss her over?

  • JohnQknowitall

    If only Marcos had done the same thing, the Philippines would be a very different country today. Of course they would have also been a richer country today, like Japan, if they had not been a US ally, but had also declared war against the US.

  • JohnQknowitall

    The character in this case should have been an Asian male.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Gay men go through the same thing… inevitably one shops and the other has no sexual bargaining chips that won’t hurt him too and so shopping mall-itis kills us all half of us.

  • Lakme Hesse

    Uh…he couldn’t just leave the mall?

  • CT

    The UPS man told me last year that I kept him in a job last year with all of my Amazon Prime orders.

  • Jessie

    The Chinese INSIST on doing everything better than us.

  • beatlechick

    Couldn’t find a proper graphic with said Asian male and my photoshop skills are lacking.

  • JohnQknowitall

    I was just stating the obvious for no practical purpose. Your posting is funny.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Hmmmmm…. What a great way to dissuade you from taking him with you shopping!!! Brilliant man you married!!! 😉

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    Tiger Moms. It’s all the result of being raised by Tiger Moms. LOL!

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    My wife would just join in the conversation, then invite her home. I LOVE my wife… LOL!

  • LeaveMeBe

    Give the dude the benefit of the doubt. These were probably long term emotions. 😉

  • LeaveMeBe

    Not mine. I hate to wear shoes and I hate to shop.

  • Delaney3030

    For me, it depends on how much cash I’m working with. I can spend a lot of time in the army of salvation, but if I’m trying to blow cash best buy is my Shit.

  • kittypyon

    This is why whenever I know my boyfriend is going to end up shopping with me I invite one of his male friends along so they can go off and do whatever they want while I shop. lol

  • onlyme356

    This might be a dumb question, but did the dude die or not?
