Woman sends tonne of onions to ex-lover
A jilted Chinese woman has sent an unusual revenge gift to an ex-lover who broke up with her.
The woman in eastern China’s Shandong province bought tonne of onions online and had them delivered to her former boyfriend’s house, saying it was “his turn” to cry.
She ordered the delivery drivers to pile the eye-watering vegetable up on her ex-boyfriend’s doorstep and leave without ringing the doorbell, Shandong Net, a Chinese news outlet reported.
“I cried for three days, and now it’s your turn!,” she wrote in a note alongside the stinging gift.
The woman in Shandong, surnamed Zhao, told Shandong Net that she had been in a relationship with her ex-boyfriend for nearly a year before the man decided to “unilaterally” break up.
“It caused me a lot of pain, but he refused to cry!” Zhao said. So she said she decided to send a gift that would “squeeze out his tears”.
“Money is nothing. But the feelings between two people are precious. I can’t be the only one crying,” she added.
“I don’t know whether her boyfriend is crying or not. But I feel choked, the whole community is filled with the strong stench of rotting onions,” a woman living in the same residential block told Shandong Net.
China marks three different Valentine’s days – one on February 14, along with many other parts of the world, and another in July as per the Chinese Lunar calendar.
