Shopping has long been misgendered as a woman’s activity. And the trope of a miserable man dejectedly carrying his wife’s purse around the mall while she shops is honestly more harmful to women than anything. So I want to say that we don’t know why the men highlighted on the Miserable Men Instagram account are miserable. They are usually in public places, stores, malls, etc. What I do know is that as a woman, it feels good to see men look less than thrilled with their circumstances. It’s about time.

So scroll down to check out the pictures of miserable husbands and boyfriends shopping with their significant others and the all-consuming agony they endure.

1The Dead

3Here you have the basic evolution of a relationship. First, he rolls in as an upright individual with a fancy bow tie. Then just another man broke down and waiting

4He’s assuming the position a little early this year. Holiday sales are just starting but I guess he’s gotta prep his dome piece ahead of time

5It's a Man's world

6He’s so zoned out from waiting - I’m wondering if he’ll notice it when another guy mistakes him for a chair
