Two Shanghainese entrepreneurs are offering themselves as verbal and physical punch-bags to frustrated office workers. Fed up with your boss? Underpaid? The founders of Wantong Ltd certainly hope so. Chen Jun and Zhang Li are offering Shanghainese a novel service: for 100 yuan they will lend a listening ear; for another 20 yuan you can give them a slap (although this service is only available to women). Wantong Ltd is not doing any official marketing, but relying on word-of-mouth exposure to attract new customers. In the first few weeks of operations, they welcomed five clients: two merely wanted to talk; two were happy with insults; one opted to slap.
