    So at the store today with my wife, KOHLS... and as im pushing the baby stroller, she has approximately 8 pairs of jeans thrown over her arm...
    i say
    "dear, why dont you go try some on, you must have 10 pairs"
    she says
    "oh it's ok, im a woman, i was born with shoppers arm"

    i almost died laughing... so ladies, is this a widespread epidemic? or limited to select members of the species or what?

    Bet those jeans weigh less than toting a kid around with one arm. Maybe that's what builds up those arm muscles?????

    All women have shopper's arm. Some just use it better than others.

    Exactly. :bow:

    Plus after carrying a child around you do build up the extra strength in your arms to carry the weight of so many pairs of jeans. :D

    not sure I've ever seen my wife with more than 2-3 store items in-hand at the same time... so I dunno. Thankfully, she hates to shop. :grin:

    It's funny.

    After I read your post the first thing I thought of was the first time I went shopping with my wife for clothes.

    We were in Nordstrom in the womens section and my wife picked out a shirt and a pair of slacks. She proceeded to the fitting room where a Nordstrom employee greeted my wife and asked, "Would you like to start a room?" My wife replied, "Yes please".

    She then went back and starting looking for more clothes! I asked, "What does 'Would you like to start a room' mean?!" My wife said, "Oh, that means a customer reserves a fitting room and clothes are put them to be tried on".

    I was so dumbstruck I started laughing!!

    "Your kidding, right?!", I said.

    "No I'm not", she said with a serious tone.




    To this day that experience still cracks me up :haha: :haha: !!

    yeah, women love the whole fitting room thing. From what I have seen men avoid it if they can, and get in and out ASAP if they can't. No talking is allowed in there... you do your biz and get the **** out. With women its like a bathroom with no crappers. Freakin' social hour and a good place to spend a lot of time.

    ...except with my wife that is... one more reason why she kicks ass. :)
