    Take a look at this image of a “Husband Day Care Centre” in Australia’s Biloela, from the very funny MadeUgrin site.

    Hi Dianne, this is excellent makes me chuckle, I will forward it to my girlfriend. She writes a fashion blog, so it will make her laugh too.

  4. An outstanding idea! It’s hard work shopping, just ask any wife.
    Now, if there was a centrally located seat in the shade we men could be usefully employed minding the bags, allowing our ladies to forage with freedom.
    Of course men could also be proactive … this may be an ideal project for Men’s Sheds around the country.

      Okay Michael, lets put the word out to all of the Men’s Sheds. Every shopping centre needs a “Seat for Bored Husbands”. It could be a sort of mini-creche for men.

    That’s gold! Does it come with a supply of toilet-esque reading material?

    • Dianne McLay says:

      You’re right. There should be a pile of sports magazines and old National Geographics beside that bench.
