SO NEAR AND YET SO FAR.

In China, lovesick commuter Shen Wang has been banned from using a bridge in Beijing after crossing it 50 times in one day so he could gaze longingly at the woman who operated the toll gate! Wang told police he had to "keep coming back to see the beautiful girl".

Oh, that reminds me of an old short story I read several years ago. Something about a young man who had to count the pedestrians who crossed a bridge. But one day SHE came along, and not only was he unable to count HER, after a few days he could not concentrate on counting anyone. They are really dangerous, all these beautiful women.

Depending on whether the feeling is mutual, it could either be a sweet story or a creepy one!

I wonder if the lady is flattered or frightened. I guess if he was banned, she is frightened.
