My mother and I have always shopped together. As I’ve grown older, her tastes have influenced mine and my tastes have influenced hers. We’ve mastered the art of buying just the things we want without falling for gimmicks. Sometimes, though, we keep some time just for window shopping and impulse buying.
Notice that, in all of this, my dad is nowhere in the picture? He hates shopping, so we tell him to sit and watch TV at home. If he does have to accompany us sometimes, he sits in a corner of the shop, checking his emails and glowering at any sales assistant that dares to come near.
I suppose he prefers that to what Roger has to go through..
