You know how it is. You're in the truck, slowly crossing a fast-flowing river by ferry, when the wife just will not stop nagging. Hopping from the cab with hands over ears and jumping off the ferry is understandable.

A Chinese truck-driver named "Zhou" played out this exact scenario as he crossed the Yangtze River, his wife nagged him to the point where jumping into the fast moving river, with a real possibility of death, seemed like a better option than staying in the cabin. Ferry operators noticed as the man opened the cab and ran from his beloved with his hands covering his ears saying "I need a break" before jumping off the boat. Immediately the operators grabbed search lights and looked for the man, but found nothing, fearing the he may have died in the fast moving water. Actually, Zhou swam two kilometers to shore where he was found, and declared "I felt I was dying, but even that's better than my wife's nagging." [Courier Mail]
