An elderly man in Chongqing got so lonely that he drunkenly called the police for a chat at least 1,483 times in one year.

Surnamed Zhao, the 71-year-old got divorced years ago, and has to grown-up daughters, according to chinaso.com.

He made his first call in July last year when he forgot his keys. The officer on duty contacted his ex-wife, and got her to visit Zhao’s home.

The following week, Zhao called the police 29 times, asking for people to come over and help him with little problems.

He reportedly won’t go to live in a nursing home because then he would have to stop drinking.
