Remember, son, we're men. We walk in. We buy. we walk out. No browsing.
I hate shopping. And salespeople, very broadly & non-specifically.
Yep, I am exactly like that. Just more proof that I have more masculine traits then feminine (at least according to many people). I am also the power tools person, repair appliances person, figure out electronics person, minor home repairs person, etc., but I love it! :o)
And don’t even think about perusing.
Clearly, this guy’s never darkened the door of a hardware store.
Know what you want when you go in. Go in, get it, pay for it and go as quickly as you went in.
Not a big box hardware store….. a Real hardware store… remember when you could buy 1 nail,,, 1 flat washer.. not that you would.. but could.. that’s a real hardware store…. wooden floors… many open bins..
I read an article in a magazine for retailers a few years back, that said if you are marketing for women hide the item. If you are marketing to men, put it right up front.
“Son, remember the coupon for additional savings.”
Hunter gatherers memorize the territory so they know where anything is when they need it.

Tsk, tsk, perpetuating a bad stereotype.
It doesn’t get more sexist than this: http://www.danflak.com/essays/shopping.html.
More stereotyping BS. No, men aren’t all stupid boobs.
It depends on what I’m shopping for. I do want to get the best and most for my money, and it definitely has to serve my purposes.
Your son is not a man yet.
Apparently our character doesn’t hang out in hobby shops. There must not be any in his area. They are a vanishing species.
