Cold feet. Not “at the wedding”. Before the wedding.

A woman called police in China after her boyfriend refused to warm up her cold feet.

Police officer Xiao Deng, of Ningbo, said he received two consecutive calls, one from the woman complaining her boyfriend refused to warm her feet – the other from the man saying his girlfriend was too demanding.

Deng went out to the rental apartment, close to Ningbo University, to try to resolve the issue but found the couple still rowing, reports Modern Times.

He says the boyfriend told him: “Have you ever seen such a girlfriend? She put her cold legs on my belly, giving me stomach cramp.
