I’m the organized one. My husband likes to meander, while I hate to shop. I write a list, plot a course through my store, and then GTFO.
Oh, Japan. You love your stereotypes.
My church held a men’s retreat 40 years ago where Gary Smalley was the speaker. Gary was explaining the differences between men and women when he pointed out: men go shopping while women go shooooopping.
Wait ‘til you hear his opinion of women drivers. ;-D
Every rule has exceptions. That said, he did quote the rule correctly.
It’s a funny remark. I have no idea if it’s universally true, but it rings true in my family. Try laughing sometimes. Not everything is life and death.
can’t tell the truth about women.
or how long it takes them to get ready for anything and everything.
Western media: “Lies, whatever, Whatever makes us the most advertising income we’ll trumpet.”
The mayor of Japan’s Osaka has come under fire for suggesting men should do grocery shopping during the coronavirus outbreak because women are indecisive and “take a long time”.
I’ll be damned...Japan is full of Karens, as well.
A few months ago, I was in a store. A woman who was probably over 80 years of age was pushing a loaded cart through an aisle. She said, “Watch out! Woman driver!” ;D
I really miss some of the people of her generation.
But online he was roundly condemned, with one Twitter user accusing him of being disrespectful to women and men. Another dubbed his comment...
It is nearly laughable what passes for journalism and politics these days, if it werent so sad. There are over 20M people in Osaka. Im sure you could write a story about nearly anything using the example of 2 unnamed Twitter users (out of approximately 330M active users) who took umbrage at one thing or another. So tired of this lazy journalism and using poll results to make news. Please...
I guess there are some truths which cannot be spoken—even in Japanese.
this guy has never been out with my hubs to buy light bulbs.
“When challenged by a reporter, he acknowledged his remarks might be viewed as out-of-touch, but said they were true in his family.”
The guy’s a riot. Anyone who’s seen me ‘shop’ knows the mayor is RIGHT. Long before Coronavirus, I went in, got my stuff, and got out, and fast. That simple.
It depends on the store. Mr. Inspectorette could spend all kinds of time at Lowe’s, Home Depot, or Harbor Freight, but would start getting antsy after 10 minutes at JoAnn’s Fabrics.
