Bored Men Kindergarten

9 October, 2003 4:25 PM

On our recent trip I discovered that bored men standing outside of change rooms in women's fashion shops is a world wide phenomenon. Thank goodness the Germans are doing something about it!

German women fed up with their partners' grumbling on weekend shopping trips can now dump them at a special kindergarten for men offering beer and entertainment.... The men are given a name tag on arrival and for 10 euros ($11.80) they get two beers, a hot meal, televised football and games.'

Men everywhere will be hoping the next one is in their city!



I like the fact that they actually came out and called it a "kindergarten". We women have long suspected that boys never grow up and now we have confirmation!! :P

I have a question for all married/attached women out there: if you don't need to involve your guy in the shopping process (as is evidenced by "parking" said guy away in a "kindergarten" so you can shop freely) -- why bring him along at all? Let him have some peace and quiet at home, and just go shopping alone or with other girl friends.

I'll never understand women... I mean, I know I'm one myself, but I don't understand them!!!

:-)....I don't know what to say...nice irene nice.

actually I read a study last year in New Scientist...or was it Mens Health...

anyway it was a study into mens blood pressure....

they found that the time when it got to the highest levels (often dangerously so) was when they went shopping with partners!

So the kindergarten idea is actually good for our health! :-) Sounds good to me anyway.

I'm just not sure why they're acting like this is some new idea worthy of a new name. These things have been around forever.

But they used to be called "bars" or "pubs" or something similar...
