The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

It’s Called A Cliché Because It Happens. Alot.

I saw this lovely example of a ‘bored man’ at a women’s fashion shop at the weekend …

Handsome chappy isn’t he!?

Anyway, whilst I actually like shopping with women, I appreciate I might be the exception … however given many ladies like their blokes to go along with them [not just for the additional view point [or credit card. ha] but because they like spending time together] I wonder why female shops haven’t opened ‘men crèche’s because not only would they keep the guy amused while his lady potters about, but they’ll also keep him in a good mood so the woman can shop for longer.

On second thoughts, maybe that’s the most stupid and dangerous idea ever … 🙂

you like shopping with chicks because youre the gayest straight man on the planet campbell.
besides youre wrong, when a woman is buying lingerie, most men find it one of the most interesting and rewarding activities they could ever do. well as long as their bird isnt a heffer. 🙂

There’s a shopping center just outside Munich that does just that every Christmas.

X-Box games, DVD’s of sporting events and SCALEXTRIC!!!!! All is a special “men’s area”.

Works a treat.

I did once contemplate opening a chain of Men’s Creches in shopping centres…

You do let yourself go on vacation don’t you?

Comment by john

Is that comment directed at me, John?

If it is, I had my vacation – it lasted 36 hours last week. For Asia that’s bloody ages, hahaha!!

Life is one long vacation my friend. Sometimes it’s like a tropical island filled with perfect moments but mostly it’s like a rainy weekend in Rhyll or a month in Magaluf,

It’s really funny watching men buying lingerie for their other halfs.
And, on a more serious note, retailers should work harder to bring the man into the process.

With people like you about NP, trust me – retailers want to keep you as far away as possible!

so you guys are saying that you’d be okay being dropped off at a ‘men’s creche’ for a few hours? … doesn’t that make you feel like a five-year-old kid who needs to be ‘dropped off’ somewhere while his mummy goes shopping?

i’m sorry, i’m just surprised and shocked that (some) men would actually take to the idea at all…. even IF there is an xbox (or xboxes) for your usage. LOL.

i guess it’s a matter of choosing between the lesser of two evils, then, is it? hehe
