A WOMAN from Suzhou province in China has blamed a condom deliveryman who arrived eight minutes later than promised and is suing him for 30,000 yuan (RM18,000), reported China Press.

The woman, known as Su, had ordered condoms from an online delivery service last month which promised to deliver them under 20 minutes.

However, after taking a shower, she received a message saying that due to the adverse weather, the delivery could be slightly late.Unable to endure a minute longer, Su and her boyfriend had sex. The condoms arrived in 28 minutes but the two had already finished.

Earlier this month, Su discovered she was pregnant and is now suing the deliveryman.

“If he had delivered on time, this would not have happened,” she said.

Su is asking for compensation for medical costs and the cost of bearing a foetus to term.

> In response to criticisms of how he looked in his official marriage registration photo, singer Lee Ronghao jokingly calls himself the “saviour of the ugly”, reported Sin Chew Daily.

“Ever since my debut, I’ve saved many average-looking young men. Whoever is not exceptionally handsome tends to be told that they looked like me,” Lee wrote on his Weibo account.Apart from an average-looking man, Lee also described himself as looking like “some dogs and some cats”.

“Should I be known as the saviour of the ugly?” he quipped.

Lee and fiancee Rainnie Yang, both 35, tied the knot at China’s Hefei city on Sept 17.

The couple posted an official photo of their marriage registration online which received a slew of criticisms that Lee’s eyes had “looked too small” but fans were quick to defend him with one telling off critics not to make fun of someone’s looks.

In the photo, Lee appeared to be squinting, perhaps a reflex against the camera flash.

Yang had also come to her husband’s rescue and had commented saying that “it’s good enough as long as I am used to it”.
