We all saw this happening at one point or another. You go shopping with your husband or boyfriend and set so much into the experience that you forget that your stranded friend is waiting for you somewhere, sitting on a bench, napping, checking his mobile phone, playing Candy Crush for the thousand time, counting sheep and his heartbeats. Let’s get this out of our system – guys waiting for their friends while they are shopping are not easy on the eyes – they look angry, upset and sometimes just sad or depressed. If you are a guy and you experienced the long wait on the sofa (also known in some circles as shop-benching) you know how it feels like.
Luckily for men everywhere (and their disinterested shopping wives), a cool Instagram page is tracking down the global misery of guys waiting for shopping to be done. The result – it’s hilarious. Meet #miserable_men.
