A retired Chinese man who agreed to meet a woman he’d met online was shocked to discover that he had been chatting with his son’s wife the entire time.
Wang, the 57-year-old man, had been retired for two years and enjoyed meeting people online. He had been using the alias “Good at understanding others” when he began chatting with Lili.
He had no idea that the woman he was chatting with was actually his daughter-in-law.
Lili, a stay-at-home mother, had been married to Wang’s son, Da Jun, for eight years. Her husband was a long-haul truck driver who spent most of the year away for work, and Lili hardly ever saw him.
Lili had been using the online alias “Lonely flowers and plants” when she began chatting with Wang in an online chat room.
While chatting online Wang claimed to be a company director whose wife had died two years ago. Lili claimed to be a single mother whose husband was serving a five-year jail sentence. Neither was aware of the other’s actual identity.
At one point, Lili suggested they video chat naked, but due to technical complications with the webcam, they were unable to do so.
Instead, they exchanged photographs. Wang sent a photograph of his friend from his military days, and Lili sent a photograph of her attractive friend. Both were satisfied with what they saw, and arranged to meet in person at a hotel in Muling City in the Heilongjiang.
On the day of their arranged meeting, however, Da Jun arrived home from work three days ahead of schedule. When Lili wasn’t home, he noticed that she’d left the computer open to the online chat with “Good at understanding others.” He also read about their plans to meet at the hotel.
In an attempt to catch Lili in the act, Da Jun phoned his wife and told her he needed to transport more cargo to Mishan city and he wouldn’t be home until late the next day. Instead, Da Jug secretly followed his wife to the hotel.
When Lili opened the door to the hotel room, she was shocked to come face-to-face with her father-in-law.
“This was a misunderstanding,” she uttered, before turning to leave.
At that moment, however, Da Jun confronted the pair.
“I’m out there working my ass off to earn money, half-dead with fatigue, and all the while you two are messing around,” said Da Jun.
Outraged, Da Jun proceeded to beat his father and his wife. Lili reportedly lost three teeth from being beaten, according to ChinaSmack.
Hotel executives reported the bloodbath to the police. All three were detained.
According to the DailyMail, Bamiantong Town Muling City police officers questioned Wang and Lili. Da Jun was reportedly detained for five days for the assault of his father.
