A sad tale of a woman scorned spending a solid week in a KFC restaurant in China has plucked the Forager’s heartstrings.

It has been widely reported across the globe that poor Tan Shen, 26, from China’s southwest Sichuan Province, sought a week of comfort eating without break. It was, she explained, because she needed time to think – having broken up with her boyfriend – and indulged in some chicken wings while doing so.

Workers at the KFC, which is open 24 hours a day, only noticed that Tan had been subsisting on fried chicken three days after her arrival and a report on Yahoo News suggests it was only unwelcome attention from the press that drove her away after a week.

She was also getting sick of the taste of chicken, the same media outlets reported.
