It does look a little lonely for this man.

EG Wow said...

Hmmm. He looks bored. He should have his Smart Phone with him! :)

the best idea retailers ever had...putting benches and chairs near dressing rooms.

Kate said...

He's probably waiting for someone who's taking too long to shop!

Jack said...

I know that feeling. Waiting for someone to try on her stuff.

Boy did I see alot of this today. And then I woke up and realized, I was one of them too.

I think this this man is a gentleman waiting for his wife very calm there!
In some way this pictures reminds me my beloved father.He used to wait very patient while mommy and I did shopping.He used to say "don't worry about me, take you time".And he was always with that beautiful smile waiting for us!
Sorry...I think I've started to cry here, but it's a beautiful feeling, thanks so much.

I did some shopping over the weekend and saw many similar scenes. In one store, the shoe department looked like a lounge.

And not to happy about it or may just resigned to it. MB

I don't know exactly why, but I find this picture very charming! Maybe it's the red sweater and him sitting there so resigned, or maybe it brings out that "I wish I had a Grandpa" feeling in me, but it's a cool shot. I don't envy mall shoppers this time of year (or any time really!)

I think he's afraid of his wife spending all to much money ;-)

Daryl said...

He's trying to remember where he left his socks

Lois said...

A very patient man!

Giulia said...

Good observation! Probably, he's waiting for his wife... and like every man (almost)in this situation (shopping), he get bored... My husband is not like that, he gives me some advice...
Merry Christmas, Jacob, for all your family!
