No, unless you're suggesting that Cumbernauld or the Savoy Centre are so bad that they're a joke, in which case I would agree.

All shopping centres are bad. I hate shopping. If we go shopping my missus says "we're only going in 2 shops" and if we go in more than two I always start getting adjitated.

I don't mind shopping, as long as it's the shops I want to go to!

I don't like going in any. Apart from maybe Dixons and B&Q.

Trouble with B&Q is that you always end up with far more than you need (or even know haw to use/install/etc) in my experience!
Hate the Trafford Centre up Manc way, too big, too many shops, too many people.
Online shoping is the way to do it - even avoid supermarkets!

I agree with Chris. I also hate shopping. I try and buy as much as possible over eBay and online stores. If you go in Dixons and buy a DVD player for example, they are more interested in selling you an extended warrenty than the DVD player. I HATE THAT!!!

There's a special forumla that I use. Take however many shops she says she wants to go in and times by 5. If she says only 2 or 3, that means 10 - 15.

As for shopping myself, If I have a sudden influx of cash, i love spending all my money on the web and becoming skint again lol. I'm really bad at money management.
