The job market can be a tough mountain to climb, thanks to limited jobs and millions of candidates. But one 30-year-old Chinese man went to drastic measures to help him get a leg up—or so he thought.
That's because the unemployed man, surnamed Ho, actually spent nearly $5,800 on breast implants after believing that Chinese women had better career opportunities than men do, prompting an extreme makeover that nearly no one would ever do.
While the man may have had a direct motive for getting the surgery, after a rift between he and family members, he recently had the implants removed.
According to the DailyMail, Ho has limited work experience and had trouble in his job search, leading him to make the decision to go under the knife. Unfortunately, his mother disagreed and was furious, per the DailyMail.
The man's mother was furious after learning her son had borrowed over 39,000 Yuan ($5,803) for the surgery.
His mother said in the video report: 'I was so scared, how can it be like that? How can a man with such big boobs face others?'
She added: 'I can't tell you how many times I have cried in my room.'
She claims that Ho had a condition with his hearing after getting a concussion at the age of three. He reportedly has problems communicating with others.
His mother blamed the hospital for conducting the surgery without keeping the family informed.
It's a sad story, really, so here's to hoping Ho catches a break and finds a solid job soon—because he has to pay back some people for breasts that he no longer even has. Bummer.
