It seems layoffs are affecting everyone.
A married guy in China has five mistresses. He decides, with the way the economy is going, he can’t afford to keep all five of them. So he schedules a contest to see which one of the five he should keep. There were at least two competitions: one based on looks, and the other a drinking contest.
Apparently, all the mistresses knew each other. The guy would give them a free apartment and a $733 allowance to be his mistress.
Everything came out in the media in China after the story ended tragically. The woman who was eliminated because of her looks, she was so angry, that at a group meeting after the contest, she drove all of them off the cliff.
The driver ended up dying in the accident, with the other five having to go to the hospital.
After the story got out, the guy’s wife and four other mistresses all left him.
Forgetting the death for a second, doesn’t it seem strange that one guy would have five mistresses, who would all know about each other? How did the guy find time to be with all of them, his wife, and his business?
And doesn’t it also seem weird that he decided to get rid of all but one of them, through a contest? I wonder what the other challenges were.
