In what may be the most horrific Freudian (Jungian?) nightmare come to life, a 40-something man in Anhui who arranged a hotel getaway with a 20-year-old woman he met on WeChat got the worst surprise imaginable when he showed up to the room on March 13 to find his own daughter waiting for him. Cringes ensue.
If the first paragraph wasn’t already excruciating enough to consider, the plot, like the most titillating of Maury episodes, thickens. According to people.com.cn, the man’s wife actually followed him from their house in Anhui province to the hotel and witnessed the meeting happen, Shanghai Daily reports. She then began to beat him under the belief that he was intentionally trying to date his daughter.
According to the report, hotel staff called police, and the family returned home after ‘some kind of reconciliation’, but who knows how long that will last. We’ve seen worse outcomes for lesser offenses.
