There are many ways to break up with your other half and then there’s this really dramatic method that has taken Chinese social media by storm. On November 23rd, residents of Taizhou, Zhejiang were stunned when they saw a white Hyundai Creta on the streets with the body of the car spray-painted with some rather amazing words in red paint.
Photos of the car were posted on Weibo and people were puzzled why the car received such treatment. One side of the car was written, “The man I love the most,” while the back had the words, “I have left.” Another side of the car’s body was written, “Seven years of disappointment, I have left.”
People who saw the car were stunned by this and jumped to conclusions, with many of them saying that it was probably done by his ex-girlfriend. They said that the owner might have hurt the girl deeply for her to do something like that and criticised him for wasting seven years of her youth.
Surprisingly, the car’s owner was revealed and he admitted that it was indeed his girlfriend of seven years who had done it. He said that he had parked his car outside his house before that and was shocked to see the words sprayed there the next day.
He posted a video on Douyin defending himself and saying that he did not understand why they were scolding him. The man said, “You’re all scolding me for wasting seven years of her time. I want to ask, isn’t men’s time just as precious?”
He also revealed that they had originally planned to get married after seven years but unfortunately, he still could not afford to pay the bride price, a sum of money or other forms of wealth paid by a groom or his family to the family of the woman he will be married to.
The man ended his video saying, “The only person I can blame is myself, for not being capable enough to marry her. Add oil, fellow men!”
