If you’ve ever shopped with a significant other, that can’t wait for you to finish shopping? That’s right Ladies, we are talking to you, but let’s be honest, it goes both ways — sometimes there’s nothing worse than a partner nagging about how hungry, tired, sleepy or bored they are when you’re trying to get your buying groove going.
It’s not an uncommon desire to wish your beau could just be temporarily locked in a box somewhere while you shop and chill, as long as they’re entertained with something.
Well, it looks like China has found a way!
In the Global Harbor mall in Shanghai, glass enclosures have been installed which have been named, “Husband Storage Pods.”
Welcome to the new age of storage!
Inside each pod is a super comfortable chair paired with a gaming system and set of video games for each “husband” of “boyfriend” to play with.
Initially use of the pods are free, there’s plans to introduce a charge, payable by smartphone to access and use them. According to Chinese website The Paper, the pods are popular, but the biggest complaint so far is a lack of air conditioning, people are sitting in a glass cubicle sweating while playing, which by the way indicates they prefer being uncomfortable and sweating, then to be with the wife under the stores cool AC, but desperate and bored…hey whatever works, right?
