Sad but sometimes after you've been asked the 45th time "Do you like this?.."
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

A lot of men hate shopping with SWMBO, most of them don't top themselves over it though.
Don't get any ideas lads! Cheesy

According to nearby shoppers, the following dialog took place:
He said, "You have enough shoes to wear for the rest of your lifetime. Why do you want to go to another shoe store?"
She said, "You penny-pincher! You've ruined the Christmas spirit!"

And that was after 5 hours of shopping no wonder the poor guy felt so depressed Sad

Yeah, even I've had enough of Meadowhall after an hour and I actually like shopping.

I prefer not to go to town, however when I have to then I go town > do what I have to as quick as is possible > get back asap

I stopped caring about Sheffield City Centre when they closed Redgates and Hamley's.

Me too!
I also have an allergy to clothes shops.. i hate the places. SWMBO doesn't so she does my clothes shopping for me - best of both worlds  Cheesy
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

I've now got a policy of not accompanying anyone to anywhere if they plan to buy clothes.

I think I'd best offer to drop her off in town and pick her up when she's finished shopping...

Re: Man jumps to his death rather than continue shopping with his girlfriend

SWMBO has stopped asking me to accompany her in the shops now.
I will usually wait in the car with either my study books or play a few games on my smartphone.
I even have a nice soft pillow for those times she is taking too long Wink
If she tells me she'll be more than two hours I will drive home and wait for her call.
As to the original OP perhaps the poor man had other issues, too  Undecided

He should have just dumped her. Cheesy
But I believe the Chinese one-child policy has made it difficult to obtain a girlfriend.

WTF

Re: Man jumps to his death rather than continue shopping with his girlfriend

I generally take my headphones and wait outside each shop listening to podcasts ..
I did hear about a mall in the states that had a Man Creche where women could leave their menfolk while they shopped.  Since it was basically a sports bar, I'm guessing it was pretty popular ..
