    As I understand it… the purpose of the frequent shopping trips is so that the husband will go with her.

    The way this goes at home:
    Wife: “I’m going shopping. Do you want to go?”
    Me: “Naw. I’m good.”

    10 minutes later:

    Wife: “Are you sure you don’t want to go?”
    Me: “Positive. I’ve got stuff to do here.”

    Another 10 minutes goes by:

    Wife: “I’m going now. Is there anything you want?”
    Me: Naw. Have a good time."
    Door: “SUH-LAMMMM!!!!”

    She wants someone to hold her bag, so everyone can see.

    We went to the factory outlet yesterday to “look around”. Eventually ended up at the Crocs store, which was my wife’s goal all along. I don’t mind. I got some nice kitchen utensils and a Nathan’s pretzel dog out of it. I’m easy to please.

    Not in our house:
    Here it’s “I’m going shopping. Need anything from the store?”
    Who wants some impatient man with you when all you really want to do is stroll down the aisles and look at stuff?
    FYI- when he goes to Costco for milk, he asks me the same thing. He knows I dislike walking around that place.
    About the only time we enjoy shopping together is at the home improvement store.

    At least a plugger is NOT a control freak.
    Unlike my first husband. Who made sure if I went shopping. That he was along to make sure I did NOT enjoy myself. Either by him blasting the radio on some program I did not want to hear while in the car. As well as him asking, “can we go back home now?” Especially if I was looking for clothing for myself. And the go home bit started within a few seconds of me even being in the women’s dept of Sears.

    Why is he telling her to take her time? Does he have a secret mistress?

    Could be. Maybe it goes all the way back to the difference between hunters and gathers.
    But, I do think the lines blur a little bit.
    There are some men who like to shop, especially for tools.
    Now, my mom really enjoyed fishing and hunting.
