Post-90s Girls Fight Over Boyfriend; Slap Each Other More than 50 Times

Chinese news can be totally whacky sometimes.

Translation: (两90后女生列车上为争抢男友 互抽耳光五十余下 from Yangtse Evening Post via Sohu news)

On the morning of September 1, a verbal argument between two post-90s1 girls who were riding on the west Nanjing to Chengdu K722 train escalated into a fight. By the time security guard arrived on scene, they had already slapped each other more than 50 times.

Around 9AM when the train was heading towards Hefei, security guards on board received a report about two young women hitting each other in the hard seat section. Personnel who handled the case recall hearing loud slapping sounds while he was still far away from the particular carriage. At the scene, two fashionable-looking girls no more than 17 or 18 years old angrily stared at each other and ferociously smacked each other's face. Surrounding passengers appeared stupefied at the outbreak.

It turned out that the two girls were traveling with another boy, who was fiddling with his cellphone throughout this fight, and they had been in arguments ever since the trio embarked on train in Nanjing. At first they were only bickering in low voices. Suddenly, one of the girls extracted several debit cards from her purse, saying to the boy: "My cards have 50,000 yuan." Not to be outdone, the other girl took out hers and declared, "I have 70,000 yuan. Be my boyfriend." This verbal exchange immediately drew other passengers' attention. The boy sat silent, looking a little resigned. The two females then launched a contest. They bragged about family backgrounds first. Next they began to compare clothing, watches, and shoes. The losing side got angry and slapped her opponent. The other girl immediately requited the favor.

During questioning, the three told the police that they live in Nanjing and were classmates in one of the high schools there. The two girls are Xiao Xiao and Min Jia; the boy is Zi Xuan. At only 18 years of age, they are recently graduated from high school. Both Xiao Xiao and Min Jia come from well-off families. Zi Xuan is not rich but does well in school and is handsome. Although he gained the favor of Xiao Xiao and Min Jia, Zi Xuan had always declined their attentions. After graduation, Zi Xuan was admitted into a Hefei university with high marks. Xiao Xiao and Min Jia also applied for schools in Hefei and were accepted. As soon as they learned that Zi Xuan was going to Hefei by train, they each bought a ticket and managed to switch seats with other people to sit by Zi Xuan's side.

The trio got off the train at Hefei station. Police noticed that the girls still closely trailed the boy after they disembarked.

One word, cheap.
Two words, very cheap.
Three words, truly very cheap.

This is one difficult choice facing a boy who just reached adulthood. He cannot just look at the amount of money on the debit cards. I believe it is more important to compare total family assets, if the girls are only child (preferable), and whether their parents have properties or work as government officials. Make a decision only after full consideration. Once the choice is made, get her pregnant. At least now marriage is permitted in college. Make sure the relationship can't be undone, and then plan his next step accordingly.

Lucky boy. Let's hope he won't become a womanizer. He needs to either clearly choose one or refuse both.

Do you think you are Qiong Yao writing romance novels? Get some journalistic ethics, please.

I didn't even know people like this existed! I learned something new!
1 It means people born in during 1990-1999 period.


  1. There's nothing wrong with being a womanizer. A man who gets around in his early years will make a much better partner when he matures.

  2. Wonderful!Love this story - it is so unique.

    The boy can have both girls as girlfriends simultaneously because neither girl will give up and it is the only way to keep them from killing each other.

    Unfortunately for the boy , the girls may be love with each other more than him! All that physical slapping just might be quite arousing!

  3. This is the first time I ever hear such a story. I never know girls can slap each other for 50 times over a potential boyfriend.
