Hopeless romanticism or not, this has to be one of the stupidest birthday surprise ideas on record. And for any of you guys out there looking for ways to impress your girlfriend on her birthday, flowers are a nice idea, or dinner and tickets to a show. Packing yourself in a large box and mailing yourself to your girl’s office…yeah, not so much.
Hu Seng thought he’d stun the heck out of his girlfriend on her birthday by mailing himself to her office. Seng, however, didn’t bank on the fact that the post office lost the package—which contained one average sized southern Chinese man—for three hours. By the time the well packed Seng arrived at his destination he had nearly suffocated to death.
From The Sun…
Hu Seng, from southern China, nearly suffocated to death after mailing himself to his girlfriend’s office in a sealed box – which got lost in the post for three hours.
When the box finally arrived, shocked girlfriend Li Wang unwrapped her enormous present to find Seng passed out – and bystanders had to call paramedics to revive him.
“I didn’t realise it would take so long,” said Seng. “I tried to make a hole in the cardboard but it was too thick and I didn’t want to spoil the surprise by shouting.”
Just going out on a limb here Hu, but I’m sure your girlfriend would have still been surprised if she had heard your voice coming from the mysterious package, but not quite as much as she would have been had she opened the box to find your recently deceased body inside.
