People I go shopping with should not...

1) Tell me to take it if I like it.
2) Not point out things they think I might like when I always point out things I think they might like.
3) Say haven't we already been here to every single shop in the mall.
4) Say how many pairs of black pants do you need.
5) Call me when am inside the fitting room to ask if am not done yet. When am done I'll come out. Don't have a fetish for being locked up in a 2 by 2 cubicle.
6) Complain that the mall is too crowded & there's no parking. The reason the mall is crowded is that everyone is there. The reason everyone is there is that it's the place to be.
7) Criticize my taste in books.
8) Criticize my taste in music.
9) Complain that am wasting time when I run into people I know & stop to chat. Wasting time how?Shopping never ends. We can always come back tomorrow.
10) Ask me why I wear high heels to go shopping if I complain that my feet hurt.

Ok, you should be grateful then that you'll never go shopping with me. I would basically do every single one of these!

Yes Mohamed but am sure you did all those things before you realized how irritating they can be & how they can totally spoil the shopping mood. Now that you know you're going to reform & change your evil ways.

thI actually do that with my older sis, I can't make shopping for the sake of shopping , i should be aiming to buy not only to watch.

I know it may sound selfish from me , when ever I enter a shop and i don;t find it fitting me , I feel like going out even though my sis is still looking , but actually it is boring for me. walahy i Try but what can I do about myself ?

Even last year while we are practicing our omrah , we were going to have a fight because I am offsetting her mood when ever she goes into shopping with me

I rarely go shopping with anyone for the same reasons,I accomplish so much alone.

shopping alone produces more results (more purchase!), but shopping with someone is fun.

take a shopping junkie with you, they would understand. I sometimes shop just for the fun of it, even if I don't need anything. men don't ever understand this btw, they think it is a mission, and think of the most efficient way to do it quickly and painlessly. so I suggest you show this list to K!

"so I suggest you show this list to K!"

Who do you think was the inspiration behind this list?

He pissed me off so much last night I didn't feel like doing anything else & came home early straight from the mall suffering from the kind of frustration you feel when a lot of little things have annoyed you instead of one big thing. Thought sitting down & writing all the little things might help. It did actually.

Remind me if I ever meet roora I should not take her shopping:)Or Mohamed.

Welcome back. Good that you're doing ok. You should make some time for blogging though. It is very therapeutic I find.

Hey, now, guys like shopping too! You have any idea how long a guy will spend looking for the right fishing pole? Or the right set of tools? Ask me to help pick out a wedding gift or a wallpaper design, though, and there's going to be trouble!

Shopping together can be fun though. But, LouLou, have some mercy on the poor man! He's trying! Otherwise, he'd be saying "OK, lets meet back here at the fountain in two hours" instead of tagging along with you :)
