Make no mistake women love shopping, but their men, not so much.
So one Ikea store in Sydney, Australia has come up with a solution.
They call it "Manland." It's an area with XBox 360's, free hot dogs and flat screen TVs with nothing but sports on.
No kids are allowed in “Manland.” Wives can only stay long enough to drop off husbands and get handed a buzzer to remind them to stop back by and pick them up.
"After 30 minutes, the buzzer goes off. It reminds you that you have to come pick up your man or else we may have to call the authorities and get them taken away," jokes Ikea spokesperson Jude Leon.
Do not look for "Manland" to come to an Ikea store near you. It was just done as a four-day promotion in the Sydney store and ended earlier this month.
