When a man in Guangdong Province found out that his wife had blown two months of his wages shopping online in the early hours of Singles’ Day, he decided to sleep elsewhere. Luckily, while having a bit to drink, he discovered a homey concrete pipe to sleep in and a willing scarecrow to keep him warm, according to NetEase.
While surveying a construction site yesterday morning, one Foshan construction worker stumbled upon something you just don’t see everyday. He found a man sleeping inside a giant concrete pipe lovingly cuddling with a scarecrow dressed in women’s clothes. Intrigued, the worker woke up the man—after taking a few pics, of course—and the guy related exactly what has to happen to a person to end up in such a position (yes, alcohol is involved).
Starting promptly at midnight on 11/11 the man’s wife started her internet shopping spree. One hour later, she had managed to spend nearly 10,000 RMB. The husband works as a cook, making a respectable 4,500 RMB per month, and after hearing how two months of his salary was now gone, he just had to leave for the night. Not having a particular place in mind, he went and bought some alcohol first. Luckily, near the roadside, he picked up a nice-looking scarecrow for some warmth and company, and then settled down inside a spacious concrete pipe for the night.
The next morning, the man confessed to the construction worker, “cuddling with that scarecrow is warmer than cuddling with my wife.”
Perhaps, the wife can follow this gentleman’s example and make use of some of the items she purchased online to win back her husband’s love from the itchy grip of that straw-filled temptress.
