I really dislike having Ghosty with me when I do any kind of shopping. There are times when he wants to tag along because he likes my company. But it's maddening to have him there because it's so obvious when he's 'had enough" and wants to bail. Grocery shopping is the worst; I can't focus on what I need to get if he's sulking and then claiming he isn't. I wind up leaving early and then half way through the week find I forgot items.

I always say "NO" now. Unless it's shopping for him because he needs my help LOL.

Agreed, Elora.

I never even shop with female friends, unless it is for them. I'll spend hours at that. Always went alone for myself.

Grocery shopping, the husband takes me now cause its easier for me, but he sleeps in the car so I'm only a smidgen pressured. (That smidgen is always there, though.)

I tell him whether I'm going for a lot, a medium, or a not much. But if it takes "too long" (longer than his idea of a lot), then watch out.

Heh...reading this thread - and this post - made me think of the old Resident Answers threads in which Trout detailed schemes he had should any woman ever ask him to "hold my purse".

Shop like the SAS.

Know your objectives.

Know the terrain.

Get in and out before they know you're coming.

You can't always find what you want that fucking quickly. Also, SOMETIMES I WANT TO, YOU KNOW, JUST LOOK AROUND FOR A FEW DAMN MINUTES.

I am not an hours-long shopper by any stretch.

I honestly don't understand bringing a man with you to go clothes shopping. Seriously, do you really care what he thinks? No, you don't, so why do this to him? To carry the bags? Get some exercise or cut down on the shopping, girl. Is he paying for it? Have him just give you the money before you leave. Everyone is happy.

Remember that story about the guy in Asia somewhere who threw himself over the balcony (to his death) in the mall, presumably because he couldn't stand one more minute of shopping with his girlfriend?

I could relate, seriously, there is nothing worse than shopping with someone when you aren't interested. I remember this as a child with my mom, it starts to make you suicidal.

I shop every two weeks.
I buy the exact same things EVERY TRIP.
In the three years I've been divorced, I don't think I have ever deviated from The List.
I could go to the grocery store with my eyes closed and get everything I need.

Our friend who likes cars? He loves to shop. Usually at antique stores, oddball places, and the like. I have had my patience tried by these expeditions. Only garage sales do I like to go to with him.

I guess he's an anomaly. He will be late to things because he just had to stop in at a store he noticed somewhere. So much so that long ago I designated the whole concept "Sweney Time." If it was vital that he get somewhere on time, I would stress to him that he couldn't be on Sweney Time for this one. That happens rarely (like a wedding), and he generally manages to adhere to it. The rest of the time he's allowed to be on Sweney Time, and we all just make allowances for that.

Every man has something he likes to shop for. I mean, in the version of Home Depot in Paisley, I could get Luc to distract himself for a while. He even found a lamp he liked.

Yeah, I call our close-by Home Depot "Home AWay from Home." "Where's Daddy?" "He's at Home Away from Home." "Oh."

When I am planning to buy something, his phrase is, "You don't need it." When I come home from shopping, his phrase is, "What did you buy now that you don't need?"

I remember watching the UK version of Antique Roadshow, the original really, with this woman who would go and buy every piece of crap kick-knack at antique places and her long suffering husband. Honestly, it was crap, it was compulsive, I would have never put up with it the way he did.

Of course, after years of this, she finally buys something that turns out to be worth a lot of money.

So basically, he is fucked for life now.

My family solves that problem because both my dad and I do the grocery shopping.

You know what? After reading those threads in the early phases of our relationship, Oryx NEVER tries to make me hold her purse.

A little passive aggressive mischief goes a long way.

Luckily, every mall around here has a bar. She can drop me off there on the way in and collect me on the way out. We're both happier that way.

They're also afraid of getting kicked out of the Victoria's Secret for rearranging the manikins, trying on bras in public, and generally causing mayhem. Lose the fear bros! If she leaves you alone, raise Hell!

Not related to shopping, per se, but we call this "Mom Time", because my mother is permanently late for everything, as is Trout's mom. That's just how it is, and we've learned to adjust and be patient.

Our trick is that I go to the deli while she shops for the rest of the list.
More often than not, by the time I'm done and catching up with her, she's almost at the end... right by the snacks, soda and ice cream.

Of course, we also have Lil Kick with us and it's extremely rare that he's fussy during shopping, so it helps a lot.
Usually I play with him and make him laugh through the rest of the trip once I join up (also conveniently keeping him occupied while she gets the rest done).
(The best part is hearing other peoples reactions to his laughing! )

I've gotten much better, but people used to (and sometimes still do) tell me to be somewhere a half hour earlier than they need(ed) me there.

I'm the opposite. I have to be places on time, and hate to be late. (This doesn't apply to parties.) Of course sometimes it can't be helped, in which case I don't worry about it.

My brother was the opposite. He hated to waste any time, and he hated to get anywhere early. So he would always allot the exact required amount of time to get there under normal, regular circumstances. This meant, of course, that the ten percent of the time when circumstances were irregular (such as traffic), he would be late, which didn't bother him at all. But it drove me nuts when I would go places with him.

I can spend 12 hours in Akihabara... In fact, I did. =^-^=

I would never inflict such a trip on anyone else. (^_^)
