Some men love shopping. Some don’t. And some have no choice at all in the matter, making for hilarious pictures on one Instagram account.
It showcases the depth of despair displayed by said men as they wait for their family members and partners to clear out the shops. The picture feed has resonated with grumpy husbands and boyfriends from all corners of the world. And has garnered more than 324k followers since its inception some 4 years ago.
Its creator, US man Matt Stroud, calls the issue a “global epidemic” and urges users to continue raising awareness of this problem facing first-world societies. He pleads: “Can’t we all just agree this needs to stop?” From then on, he began snapping photos of miserable men.
Are you still confused as to what exactly is MM?
For proof of this universal truth, we direct your attention to an Instagram account that’s been documenting the phenomenon for several years: @miserable_men.
Miserable Men of Instagram (it’s absolutely hilarious) is you on a bench in Lululemon, you are testing out a recliner you have no intention of buying, you not even going into the store at all because you’re just done.
Ladies and their stamina for pondering and trying on clothing are unusually high. While the average person (I meant mostly poor men) might last say, twenty minutes, a lady can go on for hours.
The epidemic has claimed even Kanye West. The man’s been obsessed with fashion for a long time. So maybe it was a bit of a surprise to see him straight-up unconscious while shopping for furniture with his family.
Sometimes ya gotta unbuckle Al Bundy style and wait....
If you've ever been to a mall, then you're probably all too familiar with this sight–you might even be the person who patiently waits for someone to finish their shopping. There are a few common themes throughout each photo, and the men pictured are usually doing one of three things.
- Staring into space,
- endlessly scrolling through their phone,
- or taking a nap.
They all go about this in their own unique way, but one thing is for sure–these guys can't wait to go home.
Let’s have a moment of silence for all the people trapped in shopping hell right now.
And we're not even allowed inside after all this trauma?
Someone please give this poor fellow a tissue....
I'll Call That A Mutual Happiness
OMG, Kill Me!
The one in the back though 😂😂😂😂
They thinking about all the things they might have done to deserve this.
The struggle is literally on display.
This poor sap's just praying for it all to end.
Stairway to Hell
“In this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” — Benjamin Franklin.
And the third certain is “women will take FOR FUCKING EVER when clothes shopping.”
Might as well make yourself at home.
FOREVER. Forever 21 is named after the fact that at any point in a business day, 21 men will be waiting forever on one single couch in the middle of the store.
Since women will never stop shopping, and men will never stop agreeing to go along, the Miserable Men Instagram account will never run out of content.
Those were just a few favorites but check the entire account. I bet you or a bro you know is on there somewhere.
