Breaking things to vent frustration is a normal phenomenon when people get upset, but usually such behavior would be stopped by others.
Recently, a Shenyang shopping mall opened a special store for people to break all kinds of things to relieve pressure and bad mood for a minute in Shenyang. But beware! It's for women only!
The venting store located in the fourth floor of a shopping mall has a sign "No Men" at the door.
The store is divided into several zones such as a living room and a bedroom. Wang Jingyu, the business manager of the shopping mall said they would like to open a kitchen-like zone later, and they have done this so "women can come here to feel like they are in their own homes but without any limitations, and they can break anything here."
According to Wang, all the facilities in the store are real, such as second-hand mobile phones and second-hand television sets they purchased from 30 yuan to 100 yuan each. In addition, customers can tear paper, throw plates and beat big beanbags in the corners to vent their frustrations.
The store prepares some motorcycle helmets and gloves for customers to wear to avoid accidental injuries. At the same time, considering long-time 'venting' may bring passive impact to customers, the store limits the time to 1 minute.
Wang told reporters they do not charge for women who have purchased at least 38 yuan of goods in their shopping mall's indoor park.
Since the store opened, most customers are white collar and university students, and most things that make them upset are the economy and job hunting problems.
This would be very useful for the Airing of Grievances during Festivus.
I’ve been to Shenyang. If I had to live there, I’d want to break things too.

I like this ! Too bad there is nothing for men though.
Also a great place to drop off your wife when she is on PMS !
And when they’re done destroying things, they ship the parts to Wal-Mart.
Next time I fly, I’m going to see if Continental Airlines has one of these for passengers.
The size and length of her right hand and arm are anatomically suspect. This would be a Photoshop job if it were not a painting.
POST OF THE DAY!
Don’t men take out a wall on their house, with the vague idea of remodeling it somehow, at some point?
Also, chopping wood vents frustration pretty well, I’ve heard.
It’s really, really hard to break an old CRT. They’re 3/8” thick, and the shape is very strong. Please don’t ask me how I know this...
Get enough cat hair into the top vents on one and it’ll violently self-destruct. I think you can figure out how I know this.
