Chico's And The Man...Chair

In auto repair shops there are waiting areas to hang out in while your car is being serviced. Often they have the television tuned to non-descript, non-offending channels so the customers can pass the time while they wait. Since I am usually being dragged into women's clothing stores while my wife shops, I've discovered that there are no waiting areas for men except for Chico's in Georgetown.

I've thought that one way to keep male companions-boyfriends-husbands content while their significant other is shopping would be to have a waiting area with a tv. I have seen that in bars, regardless of their differences, men will stare in utter fascination at channels tuned in to say..."The History Channel," especially if the show is something like "Warbirds of World War II," or "Large Construction Vehicles." The time would pass quickly, and it would be greatly appreciated by the men. Heck, we may not want to leave if we get engrossed in a show, allowing women more time to shop.

Other places like Nordstrom's, Macy's and Lord & Taylor's should heed this suggestion. Stores? Men chairs and televisions. Trust me. Gold.

Oh, and how our guest blogger misses the man chair at the long-gone Tweeds-n-Things (formerly at the Chevy Chase Shopping Center). Not only did that fine shop have a man chairs, it had magazines and, best of all, the owner's collie, Jack. Several times, while perusing the clothing, I felt a gentle pressure on my leg. That was Jack, pushing against me for a pat. Our guest blogger enjoyed his chair and Jack's company at Tweeds-n-Things.

Better yet, put the auto-shop right beside a few clothing stores. The women wouldn't need a waiting room, then.
