Male Shopping Habits
As I have said many times before I don’t think men and women are just different genders but entirely different species. Nowhere is this more apparent than in shopping habits. When I go to the store with my wife it doesn’t matter if we are going in for 2 or 3 items she will ALWAYS grab a cart. Here are some traits that male shoppers have that differ from those of their female counterparts.
Men resist carts … unless loading up at The Home Depot. It’s better to fill your arms with dog food, laundry soap and toilet paper and stagger up to the checkout lanes than to push a pansy Wal-Mart cart.
Men don’t shop together and chat with other shoppers about the latest razors, shoes or socks.
Men don’t pace the hair coloring aisle trying to decide which color would suit their skin tones.
You never see men in the lotion department, sampling every other bottle, opening and smelling to see which scent is the best.
Men don’t stand transfixed in front of the paperback section trying to decide on a good read. They just grab a Sports Illustrated and get on with their life.
Men don’t help other men find a special gift in the jewelry department.
Men don’t try on clothes together in the same dressing room.
In other words, when men shop they are on a mission. When women shop, they go shopping. Big difference.
