In case you're too busy racking up your credit card bill, here's what he's does when you're shopping

We've all been there: You're deep into a productive shopping bender, when you peek out the store window and see your guy sitting on the bench buried in Nordstrom bags, your purse and just about every other boyfriend at the mall that day.

At first you start to feel a little guilty that he's about to pull his hair out, but then you remember, those bags are heavy. Just kidding. But no, really, they were getting in the way of your shopping mission.

 

As sleep-inducing as it is for him to sit there, bored to death, while you break the bank, there is something sort of sweet about him just being there.

With holiday season in full swing, sending your guy into the trenches is becoming a bit more frequent—and a lot more chaotic. As an ode to the men who wait (and wait) for us, we count down our favorite poor suckers at the mall.
