A 20-year-old Hubei woman was spotted storming onto a downtown street and then lying down in the middle in indignation this past Wednesday after her father selfishly refused to buy for her the pricy smartphone she had always wanted.
While out shopping with her dad, the woman set her heart on a new smartphone worth around 2,000RMB, according to jznews.com. Unfortunately for her, daddy refused to pay that kind of money. Piqued, the young lady decided to make like a toddler (or a miffed poet/official) and throw an epic temper tantrum in the streets.
As soon as traffic officers noticed, they quickly formed a human chain around the wailing woman to protect her from passing vehicles. The heroes also managed to persuade her to reconcile with her father.
In the meantime, the smartphone seller agreed to lower the price and the father purchased the phone for his now overjoyed daughter. Traffic was back in order once again. And everyone lived happily ever after.
