Man jumps in river to escape wife's nagging

  1. Funny and unnerving at the same time

    A MAN jumped into a fast-flowing river because he couldn't take his wife's nagging anymore.

    The Chinese truck driver, known as Zhou, and his wife were on a ferry on the Yangtze River when it all became too much for him, the Chongqing Evening Post reports.

    Members of the ship's crew saw the man suddenly run out of his cabin with his hands covering his ears, and shouting: "I can't stand it any longer."

    They initially thought he was suffering from an ear injury and went to help him but found he was unhurt.

    "While we were still puzzling over the this, his wife ran up and continued nagging him," said a crewmate.

    "The husband covered his ears again and said: 'I need a break' before jumping over the side into the rushing river.

    "We immediately found lamps to light up the water but found nobody. The possibility of survival can be zero."

    However, later that night, police found the man who had managed to swim about 2km across across the broad river.

    "I felt I was dying, but even that's better than my wife's nagging," he reportedly told the police.

    The couple were reunited the following morning at the local police station where Zhou's wife promised to give up her habit of nagging him.

  5. must be a real pain :LOL:
  6. Just wait til they get home. :shock: :LOL:
  7. I feel ya Bro
  8. Sad (annoying) thing is, I see this occuring on a very regular basis.
    You might remember the Mainland Chinese woman who 'missed her flight from HK recently ? The one that went bananas ?!!! That's normal.
    Being a resident in HK for 7yrs, it's sad to say that (not all) the Mainland Chinese are not exactly shy to create a scene. Unfortunately, this almost always involves a woman seriously reprimanding the man, with him, tail between legs, obediently listening to the bollocking.
    Makes me flip just seeing a man take that sort of punishment and not stand up for himself.
    In this case, he did just that till a point where he couldn't handle it anymore. May have been different if he had just ditched the b*tch much earlier :cool:
