Heartbroken woman spends a week in KFC after getting dumped.

The best place to get over a broken heart.

Like you need a reason to spend a week in KFC.

Rather than than hit the town or get get pissed with friends, a woman in China only wanted to do one thing when her boyfriend dumped her last week:

Sit in KFC, and eat fried chicken wings. For a week.

So that’s what she did.

Literally. Tan Shen, 26, spent an entire week sitting, eating and sleeping in a 24-hour KFC. After getting dropped by her bae, she decided fried chicken was the only thing that would do:

“I was walking around feeling miserable and decided to stop off at the KFC at the train station,” she told Yahoo News. “I hadn’t planned on staying there long, I just wanted some chicken wings. ‘But once I got in there and started eating I decided I needed time to think. I didn’t want to go back to my apartment because it was full of memories of him. So I stayed.”

Hey – you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do.

Because of changing shifts at the restaurant, it took a few days for anyone to notice that Shen hadn’t actually left.

“At first no one really noticed her,” an employee revealed. “But after a few days I began thinking she looked really familiar. Then I realised we had been serving her for the past three days and that she hadn’t actually left.”

After a week, news crews began arriving, so Shen went to stay with her parents for a while. But before leaving, she told staff that she really had just needed time to think.

We’ve all been there, Shen. We’ve all been there.
