Some say a pint of ice cream is the way to get over a bad break up, but for one woman in China it was a week's worth of chicken.

It might be the strangest break up story I've ever heard, but it actually happened in China last week.

26-year-old Tan Shen from Chengdu, in China's southwest Sichuan Province had just been dumped by her boyfriend and was taking the break up badly. So on her way into work one morning she decided to stop at a KFC near the train station and get some chicken wings to cheer herself up.

She wound up spending an entire week inside that KFC eating chicken and fries.

Tan even called out sick from work in order to stay at the KFC because she said she "needed some time to think." And according to she chose to stay where she was to do her thinking because her apartment "was full of memories of him."

I guess it was lucky for her the KFC was open 24 hours. In fact it was so busy there that employees say it took a few days to notice that she had never left. And once the employees noticed, the local media took notice as well.

Tan decided to leave the KFC once media outlets arrived. She ended up quitting her job and took the next train home to her parents house.

This is definitely a much more dramatic break up reaction than I can even imagine myself having. Think she went a little overboard, or can you feel her pain?
