Could you shop happily if your hubs/ boy friend waited you at the parking?

This is what happened to me today :( I planned to shop today and happen my hubs was free so he wanted to join me. So I happily left the house with hubby and my daughter. We went for lunch then off to the mall called The Curve. On the way was traffic jam, imagine we get trap in jam on Sunday. We reached the place a little late and my hubs started feeling tired. He said we rather wait for us in the car park and wanted to take a nap there. I reminded him not to sty in the car for that long time and asked him to come down from the car or maybe rest in 1 of the place at the mall. He just ignored and wanted to stay in the car. So I brought my daughter and shop around in the mall, brought her for some donkey rides. She was happy. She didn't ask for daddy too. But I just could not focus my mind to shop. Spending 1 hour at the mall just like spending my whole life there. I worried a lot my hubs in the car park. I managed to grab a dress for my girl as this is my purpose to shop today. I wanted to get a new dress for her on her coming birthday . We then we to meet hubs in the car park and he was feeling good there, enjoying his mp3. He looked he has recharge his energy. So you got any of this experience before? May share with me your story.

Hello VingYan, sorry that you did not had a pleasant day. My husband never like to stay in the car park, while I shop alone. I guess he feel alone without me (just kidding). Actually he is too concern of me and my girl's safety, so whenever we both go, he surely tagged along (unless the destination is very near to our house, for example playground.) Of course I will feel very glad that he accompany me to shop because he could take care of my daughter while I can concentrate shopping. I am lucky that he is patient enough to do so and even asked me to take my own sweet time in looking for the item I want. But I will usually followed my buying list and shop as fast as I could, or else my naughty daughter will start to show temper. Cheer up VingYan, maybe your husband feeling really tired after trapped in the jam, therefore he prefer to stay in the car than shopping. I am sure he does not do that regularly right?

Hello Shuetyeng, From the response here I can see that you are lucky woman! You have a caring and thoughtful hubs! It is glad to hear from you that your hubs tag along with you when you go shopping. I like what your hubs tells you to take your time while shopping. How I wish my hubs will have this to tell me ' darling take your time and buy whatever you want, LOL. For my hubs, he is kinda lazy to shopping with us. Every time I will need to force him to go out shopping with me. But when comes to others outing, he will give you a super fast and good response!

I prefer shopping on my own.it takes me some time to choose what I'll buy.I don't want somebody to be waiting for me,whether in the car park or anywhere in the mall.I'd rather shop on my own.this is one of my ways of spending precious time myself.

If my hubby decided to wait in the parking lot for me I would not feel comfortable. I would try to hurry my shopping so we could leave soon. My hubby is quite patient when I shop but I still could not shop with ease knowing he is in the car waiting. I know I would get bored being in the car waiting.

Could you shop if hubby waiting for you in the parking lot? Hello Vingyan, it would be very hard to shop if my hub was waiting in the parking lot for me. I often tell him to wait in the same store where I am shopping at. It would be very nice if each store had a nice little waiting area with a tv in it where the hubby's could all sit down at and watch the sports. They they would never want to leave the stores. I'm glad that you were able to find your little girl a dress. I hate it whenever I am shopping and hubby start rushing me. Then I wind up choosing the wrong thing. One time I came back and he was talking on the phone. So now whenever we shop, he make good use of his time by calling up his old co-workers and friends. Which that isn't too bad of any idea, as long as I can shop I am happy. happy mylot!

I had the similar experience. We went out happy, but came home separate. He is impatient to compare, select, try, bargin, etc. He would go to separate departments for electronic appliance, or books, or sit in the fast food for a drink. men have different interests, so better go shopping by yourself, as long as we do not rely on them for paying.

It is a no no for me coz all i would think is that i am imposing on someone for he is waiting for me. It would make me hasten my time of shopping. It is really better to do it without someone waiting for you so you can really do your shopping at your own pace.

Hi vingyan, my hubby do tag along, normally he likes to see around too. But sometimes he do feel very tired and would like to rest in his car. No matter what he said, "eg. take ur time, I will rest here" we women/wife will felt uneasy and begins to worry and will do everything in a hurry. That will upset our shopping experience. I will just get what I want, and packed the food and rush to see him too, just like you! Actually they did not mean to upset our shoopping, but too tired. When he is not tired, he will enjoy sitting massage chair - Osim, Ogawa, etc. Go to MPH to read books and browse the internet using his notebook. One thing good about Klang Valley shopping malls, they have this facilities, chairs/benches to relax especially in 1 Utama, it has free wi-fi.. If I go with my sis, my son & my hubby... we will discuss and we will do what we desire and meet again at an appointed place or contact via mobile phone! So do not worry, and have fun shopping, after all now is Mega Sale, until 31/8/09!

That's why it's boring to shop with man! They refused to tag along! Then we have to hurry up the shopping and compare thing less. There's no joy of shopping! Usually if we have to take a male member along, I'll make sure he sit in a coffee shop or whatever and enjoy his time there. If he tag along he only want to force us to shop faster.

I don't feel comfortable to have anyone waiting for me to do my shopping, I will shop in a rush and get what I want in speed. Most of the time I prefer to shop alone till any hours I like, shop all I want in peace, slowly buy and slowly choose.
