    Tao Hsiao reportedly leaped from a seventh floor balcony at the Golden Eagle International Shopping Center in Xuzhou, China, after a fight with his girlfriend. 'He told her she already had enough shoes, more shoes than she could wear in a lifetime and it was pointless buying any more,' a witness said.


    An aggravated man leapt from an upper-level mall balcony to his death because his girlfriend refused to stop shopping, witnesses said. :facepalm:

    Tao Hsiao, 38, was at the Golden Eagle International Shopping Center in Xuzhou, China, for five hours on Dec. 7 when his lady insisted that they check out another shoe store, reported Chinese news site Hexun.com.


    "He told her she already had enough shoes, more shoes than she could wear in a lifetime and it was pointless buying any more," an eyewitness said, according to Gawker. "She started shouting at him accusing him of being a skinflint and of spoiling Christmas, it was a really heated argument."

    Tao apparently could not handle any more name-calling — or shopping for that matter.

    Security footage shows Tao — in an apparent burst of anger — throw the shopping bags to the ground before jumping over the seventh floor railing.

    Tao reportedly crashed into holiday decorations on the ground floor and died upon impact.

    Other shoppers gaped as paramedics rushed the man away on a gurney.

    A mall spokesperson said that no one else was injured as a result of the suicide and that his body was removed from the premises quickly, according to the Inquisitor news site.

    "This is a tragic incident, but this time of year can be very stressful for many people," the spokesperson added.
