20 ‘Miserable Men’ Who Said ‘Yes’ To Shopping With The Wife

  Published on 

Men and shopping don’t go hand in hand… unless that’s also the hand of your wife or girlfriend. It is a true hell to be dragged on an activity where one spends hours browsing and buying things you have zero interest in. But when that’s a relaxing hobby for your loved one, you can’t say no to them.

These are images of men in the same despair from taking their wives shopping. It did not occur to them that after getting a beautiful partner, they would be thanking their phone for the hours of shopping they’ll have to endure in the name of love.

Wait, how?

Women love shopping while men dread the word. This has been the norm for decades and as kids, we really hate to tag along when our mom goes shopping. This isn’t just a common belief – it is backed by science and a survey that involved 2000 participants in the UK. The men get tired within 26 minutes but the women? They’re still happily jumping from aisle to aisle after two hours.

At least one of them got a chair.

Wharton marketing professor Stephen J. Hoch explains why they differ so much. “Women think of shopping in an inter-personal, human fashion and men treat it as more instrumental. It’s a job to get done,” said the professor. Women also like helpful advice when their shopping, which means longer interactions, while men need that checkout manned when they are done.

Plot twist: they were 27 when they got here.

But recently, this age-old gender norm is shifting. Perhaps, it’ll be completely crushed in this new decade? First Insight Inc. releases a report that shows 53 percent of men shopped on Amazon 6 times or more in a month. The women? Only 45 percent of female respondents did so. In mass department stores, it’s 25% vs. 15% for males and females.

Boy just looks very concerned about his upbringing.
