Frustrated Chinese man uses donkeys to drag his defunct Range Rover
Remember the tale of the rich man who destroyed his beloved Lamborghini Gallardo because it was plagued with unattended problems? Well, not so far away from the rich man’s town in China, another Chinese man from the town of Shenyang met with a similar problem. His centre of attraction wasn’t a sleek sports car though. Instead, it was a big, brawly SUV called the Land Rover Range Rover.
The Chinese man from Shenyang bought this brute from its seller in 2010 by paying two million Chinese coins. But ever since the Range Rover came to the Chinese man’s home in Shenyang, it started throwing tantrums every now and then. It even broke down six times within a short period of coming home. Finally, when it broke down for the seventh time, the Range Rover brute demanded a new engine. The Chinese man from Shenyang couldn’t take these tantrums anymore. Frustrated he was, but his heart was too soft to hammer down his pricey possession like the rich man did in the Lamborghini Gallardo tale.
Instead, the Chinese man from Shenyang decided to send back the Range Rover brute to the Land Rover seller. He wanted back every coin that he spent on the Range Rover, but what he wanted more was to make the brute and its seller feel humiliated in some way. After putting a lot of thought on devising a humiliation for the two, the Chinese man from Shenyang hired two well fed donkeys. Not to kick the brute’s butt, but to drag it from the Chinese man’s house to the seller’s shop, all the way through the town of Shenyang. As the donkeys dragged the Range Rover, the brute and its seller’s humiliation knew no bounds. But in spite of the shame the seller was put through, he wouldn’t repay the coins the Chinese man from Shenyang paid for the Range Rover brute.
Sitting here in India, we are no one to pass a judgement on the proceedings of this story. However, we can advice the Chinese man to re-check his pricey possession thoroughly. For all we know, his brute may have a name tag that reads ‘Ranged Rover Spoil Sport’ with a tiny ‘Made in China’ written under the hood.
