This Mall Has Gaming Pods For Wives To Leave Their Husbands

…or husbands to leave their wives.  This is 2017, after all.

Male or female (or other), there is nothing worse than being dragged around a shopping mall by your significant other.  Trying to fake a mild interest in the seventeenth outfit you’ve been asked to judge knowing full well it isn’t going to be going home with you takes the heart of a saint.


Well, you can if you’re local to The Global Harbour mall in Shanghai.  The Global Harbour is launching gaming pods for significant others to get their game-on while their partners browse stores in peace.

So, reluctant shoppers the world over have reason to rejoice at a new innovation in China.

The Global Harbour mall in Shanghai is launching gaming pods for bored significant others to play on gaming consoles, whilst their other-halves can get on with shopping without any moaning.

The pods, dubbed “husband pods”, are free to use and have a chair, monitor, computer and game controller.

Check this out:

The name is sexist (something we certainly do not condone), but the premise itself is pretty awesome.  I’d certainly be down for a few more trips to the mall if these were installed here in the UK.  But, don’t tell my wife.

What do you think?
