Recently, a security guard was whipped for just trying to do his job by one angry uncle with an ardent passion for top spinning.
On September 14th, in a residential community in the Shaanxi city of Ankang, residents complained about the noise that was being made by one uncle engaged in the traditional Chinese hobby of top whipping.
With the loud whacks ringing out throughout the neighborhood and causing parents to fear for their children’s safety, a neighborhood security guard was dispatched to kindly ask the uncle to leave.
However, once confronted, the uncle failed to stop his whipping. The security guard then stood right beside the old man’s spinning top, assuming that this would make him stop. Nevertheless, the uncle continued right along, whipping the security guard across the legs in the process.
Reportedly, the blows tore the guard’s socks and drew blood. Police soon arrived to sort out the situation, giving the uncle a stern talking to. Later, the old man’s family came to apologize to the security guard.
