“What Do They Do In Those Shops” Says Father Who Spent Hours In Single Tackle Store On Saturday — The Betoota Advocate

A local father of three has today spoken to The Advocate about some of the things in life he just doesn’t understand.

Previously having raised the issue of power switches being left on and ‘people’s’ inability to cut cheese, Grahame Wilson has revealed the latest cause of frustration.

His wife and daughters ability to spend half a day inside various retail stores.

“Don’t get me wrong, I understand that they like nice things, and that we are blessed to be able to have nice things,” said Graham.

“But I trudged around for 5 hours on Sunday arvo for my wife to purchase one single item of clothing, which wasn’t even for her?!?” said the flummoxed local father.

“What do they do in there?”

“Is there some secret thing that I don’t know about?”

“Are there exotic male dances and cheese boards out the back that entertain them for an hour at a time?”

“What do they do?”

“They just go in there for half an hour then come out, shrug and we go to the next place.”

“Am I being tested? Is it a big joke to stir Graham up?” he laughed.

“It just baffles me,” said the man who spent two and a half hours in a tackle shop on Saturday looking at various lures and fishing equipment that won’t catch him anything other than an undersized bream.

“Just seems like a waste of time if you ask me,” said the man who often goes and watches a movie solo during these shopping adventures.

“Each to their own I guess.”
