While some husbands may apologize to their wives only by buying some flowers or chocolate, one Sichuan husband recently went all out, renting ad space on hundreds of taxi cabs around town to declare just how sorry he is.
The man, surnamed Wang from Guangyan city, quarreled with his wife recently, resulting in her walking out the door and leaving him. To try to get her to come back home, Wang spent more than 3,000 yuan renting the ad boards on 626 cabs in the city to broadcast the messages: “Honey, I was wrong” and “Sweetie, forgive me!”
And apparently the effort has worked — somewhat. Wang has at least received a call from his wife, Chengdu Business Daily reports.
However, he isn’t the first to come up with this method of begging forgiveness. Last year, another apologetic husband from another Sichuan city rented ad space on more than a thousand cabs — at an estimated cost of 30,000 yuan — to make his big apology. He must have been really, really sorry.
