I think the men in our lives would quickly get tired of running back and forth to exchange items. Men have to be told exactly what to get in as many details as possible. Its best to include package description as well as color,size and shape and where it’s located in the store. This doesn’t always guarantee you will get what you want.
My husband goes to the store with me and I frequently ask him to go to another aisle to get something since he uses a scooter to get around. It saves me time and he likes zooming around on this bright red scooter I can see sending him to go get vinegar and oil for salad dressing and he comes back with a bottle of vinegar and some Quaker State 10w40. Believe me stranger things have happened
When my father was dating my stepmother, he went to the grocery store with her to buy things for a family dinner. She told him she needed some napkins. He put sanitary napkins in the cart. She took them out and politely said, “Those aren’t the right kind” He went back to get another package of napkins and he came back with more sanitary napkins but a different brand. Once she told him the difference in the type of napkin she wanted. He turned beet red. He thought, “Sanitary, meant they were sanitized.
Some of the newer stores almost comes under the description of a small village. We have the butcher, the baker, and candlesticks all under the same roof. We can also have a flower shop; pharmacy, bank and a mini hardware store all in one place. I am not complaining I am glad to get everything done in one trip. Of course the super centers have definitely made” one stop shopping,” a reality some of them are so big they need a zip code of their own and we spent a great deal of time there. Here in Palestine, Texas if you go to visit someone and they are not a home, just go to Walmart. Most likely you will find them
I would suggest grocery stores have a play area for children and a separate one for husbands with a big screen TV. The kids will enjoy it. It would cut down on impulse buying. We have a tenancy to buy extra things when the kids are with us.
Many of the stores have fast food restaurant and television and even WIFI. Husbands can sit and watch TV while we shop. They can watch the game or the race they are so afraid of missing. They can get something to drink and a something to eat and relax. They are conveniently close enough for us to get more money from them if we need it. We just have to figure out a way to keep them from fighting over the remote.
