    I can too, those types of stores and electronic stores are my downfall. That said, I'd never drag a woman with me to them unless of course she was into them too.

    You guys are soft. Try shopping with a wife who's curvy enough to look good in anything, but can't ever find a store that has her size. Get back to me when you've walked down Isabela la Catolica St. in Mexico City for 7 hours.

So I guess it is military caveman shopping for me! More and more these days I shop online when possible, I get my shoes pants shirts and even recently added furnace filters, from the internet. What I never do is allow myself to get sucked into going shopping with anyone who likes to "shop" because then I'll just have the urge to do what this poor Chinaman did! I was at a store a couple of years ago that had what I'd call a lost man/husband waiting room in it. It had TVs magazines and even some game machines and pool tables in it as well as a full service bar. Not a single female in the room and plenty of men in it singing it's praises. Brilliant idea. The wife of a friend of mine called it her daddy day care center and says it saved her marriage as she can now get her husband to go shopping with her in that department store. Ikea has also clued into this "man cave" concept, too bad this mall in China did not have one, might have saved a life!
    I like that a daddy daycare. LOL.

    Man Leaps to His Death in Shopping Mall After Girlfriend Insists on More Shopping

    CHINA - a 38-year-old man leaped to his death after an argument with his girlfriend who insisted they continue shopping. CCTV captured Tao Hsiao and his girlfriend in a mall in Xuzhou, Jiangsu province, east China where they had reportedly been shopping for five hours or so before he hit his limit.

    Eyewitnesses said Hsiao could be heard telling his girlfriend that they already had more bags than they could carry, but she insisted on hitting one more store where there was a sale on shoes.

    An eyewitness said: "He told her she already had enough shoes, more shoes that she could wear in a lifetime, and it was pointless buying any more. She started shouting at him, accusing him of being a skinflint, and of spoiling Christmas. It was a really heated argument."

    The argument continued until Hsiao threw the bags on the floor and himself over the balcony, dropping seven stories to his death and smashing Christmas decorations on the way down. He was killed on impact.
    Should have just taken the bags, found a bar, and let her find him when she was done. I mean jumping to your death because of shopping? A bit of an overreaction if true.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Man's complaining about staring at his wife's ass all day. What's up with that?

    He'd have been a lot worse off had he thrown the bags over the railing, so you guys don't get that he was making the right choice.
