My rule for getting stood-up is 45 minutes. A 41-year old man waited 10 days until he had to be removed by an ambulance. I wonder what day he decided to take his shoes off.
Alexander Pieter Cirk traveled from Holland to Changsha Huanghua International Airport in China to meet his girlfriend. The problem being that he’s never met this girl.
Cirk met “Zhang” on an online app two months earlier and decided that he has to meet her. My guess is that he sprung for the paid version of Tinder and was swiping right for God knows how long.
He told her that he was coming. When he got to the airport, no one showed up and he refused to leave. After 10 days of malnutrition and exhaustion, Chinese authorities removed him. I guess Changsha doesn’t have a Sbarros or Panda Express.
Hunan TV found “Zhang” and she had this to say. “We had advanced our romantic relationship but later he seemed a little callous towards me. One day he sent me a photo of air tickets abruptly and I thought it was a joke. He didn’t contact me later.” She then said she was having plastic surgery, so she turned off her phone. Ohhh, that old line.
Are you thinking what I’m thinking? “Zhang” is a 12-year old boy having a laugh. Manti Te’o shakes his head in disbelief.
