    half of these survival tips sound like you're dealing with a pet animal or a toddler, and not a man.

    Me If my man is gettin a bit restless i let him come in the changin rooms n do a lttle bit of grown up stuff *wink* LOL

    lmao @ "reward him for good behavior"! Sounds like a dog lol! "Good boy!!! Here's a treat!" lol

    Also there is a contradiction with two of the points on the list. How do you make sure you keep him by your side but still offer him the chance to "wait outside or get something for himself"?? That doesn't make sense.

    Well fortunately for me! I hate shopping just as much as my boyfriend does lol.

    Or um…get a car, get a job, and go shopping by yourself…or make some friends.

    Sorry but why does your man need to go shopping with you/for you if he isn't shopping for himself? lol That reminds me of when my parents dragged me grocery shopping with them as a kid. Mofos just bring the food back and I'll be good. LOL

    It doesn't make any sense to need to go shopping with someone else that isn't even picking anything out themselves. Thank God for my fiance….once again..

      I encourage my wife to take the boys to the grocery store so I can smoke weed in the garage. I then roll a second blunt for her to burn when she gets back while I watch the kids.

      Teamwork…God bless it.
