The Mutual Misery of Married Men in Malls
This blog came about from witnessing precisely what the above title states (although these men were doing a good job of circumnavigating the misery part). One man sat down in the comfy chair to wait on his wife, and another man proceeded to do the same in the nearby chair. Comments about wives and shopping were mutually exchanged back and forth. And of course places of origin, current living location etc. followed. I have no idea how long those men waited patiently in those plush chairs until their wives made some sort of merchandise resolution, but I think it's safe to say that it was long enough to make these two men, once strangers, kindred spirits.
