Dumb Guy in Love Mails Himself to Girlfriend in Box & Almost Dies

Eye Roll 9

Cardboard boxLove can make guys do some pretty stupid things. Heck, so can beer and a woman wearing a tight sweater. But this story makes even us regular guys look like Einsteins.

Apparently, a young Casanova in southern China named Hu Seng wanted to play a prank on his girlfriend Li Wang. With the help of a friend, he put himself in a large cardboard box, then had the friend seal it up tight and give it to a courier to deliver to his unsuspecting lady.

Just like a bad episode of Three's Company, those zany delivery men mixed up the address, and instead of taking 30 minutes to deliver Mr. Seng, took almost three hours. The poor guy was passed out and needed to be revived by paramedics when he arrived. Seems the cardboard was too thick for him to rip a hole in, and he didn't want to shout out and ruin the surprise.

Okay, now before I get into the overall stupidity of this entire prank, I have to say that this story itself is full of way more holes than the misplaced parcel.

How stupid do you have to be not to put at least one air hole in a box you're taped up in? Plus, how could the couriers have no idea what was in the box? Humans aren't rectangular, so the second they tried lifting the box, Mr. Seng would've shifted and caused some suspicion with the driver. Right?

Not to mention that unless the cardboard was made of steel and Hu Seng weighs only a few pounds, it certainly would've caved in a bit when lifted.

So yeah, no way I buy that this story is real for a second. At least some of it has to be exaggerated or made up. But let's pretend it is real.

Is this a loving gesture to impress your girlfriend? Not really. Seems kind of lame to me. In fact, it'd probably backfire big time. What, your girlfriend's supposed to be even more in love with you after she opens a package at work, and you pop out and scare the crap out of her in front of all her co-workers? Nothing like embarrassing AND scaring your significant other in front of her peers to get her to adore you even more.

Instead, why not dress up as a mailman yourself and hand-deliver some roses right to her desk? Or if you want to send her a package, fill it with photos of you, love poems, sentimental items, homemade cookies, anything. Anything but your own sweaty, passed-out body. Nobody wants a "romantic" surprise gift like that.

What's the stupidest thing your boyfriend's ever done to impress you?

LOL!!! This made me laugh, "if you want to send her a package, fill it with photos of you, love poems, sentimental items, homemade cookies, anything. Anything but your own sweaty, passed-out body. Nobody wants a "romantic" surprise gift like that." LOL!!!

My  then fiance' put balloons in my car's wipers while I was in attending my religious meeting. I was so not expecting to see them after the service, it was a sweet and very unexpected gesture.

Nothing stupid though, I am not impressed with stupid.

My ex boyfriend cut open a large stuffed teddy bear, filled it with balloons that had messages inside that said cute things (they red ones so i felt like i was pulling out organs), and then sewed it back up again. Oh, forgot to mention, the balloons also had pennies in them so that I would have to search for the messages. It did take him a while to do and took some prep work, but, call me ungrateful, it didn't exactly say romance to me when I had to tear into the teddy bear.

OH, I LIED! The stupidest attempt to impress me (while asking me out for the first time) was when a guy had me pulled over, cuffed outside my vehicle, and stuffed into the back of a police car on mainstreet in my hometown so EVERYBODY got to see me in this flattering moment (and I was taking an eight year old to the movies for her birthday so she was left alone crying in the car). To his credit, there were flowers waiting in the backseat.  Once again, it took a lot of prep for this guy too, but what the heck was he thinking?

That doesn't sound like a dumb guy in love, it sounds like a dumb stalker to me.

That is the weirdest story I have heard! I have never heard of a courier in toronto doing this. That is just plain crazy. What was he really thinking?
