(Newser) – A Chinese man reportedly took to drastic measures after his girlfriend refused to stop shopping. After shopping at a mall in China for more than five hours with his girlfriend, 38-year-old Tao Hsiao reportedly responded to her request to go into one more store by leaping over the railing seven floors to his death. Eyewitnesses say the couple got into a "really heated argument" about shoes before Tao threw his bags on the ground and leaped over the balcony.

A little taste of Capitalism and the woman can't stop herself. Like her government who builds with no clear purpose, she seems to be shopping for the sake of shopping; which isn't news until the mans empty bank account drives him to suicide.
