Shopping Mall Builds Gaming Pods for Bored Men

The Global Harbour mall in Shanghai may have found the solution for bored men shopping with their spouses.

The booths, called "husband pods" bring the tired boyfriends and husbands into a clear enclosure with a plush seat in front of a computer gaming rig.

On Weibo, China's largest social media platform, users have pointed out how sexist it is:

"Well my boyfriend often asks me to accompany him for shopping trips."

 "I'm a girl and I want to go in to play too."

"I don't like shopping but my husband enjoys it...guess I know what I'll be doing next time he shops."

Others had mixed feelings on the matter:

"I'm going to accompany my girlfriend to the mall every day."

"I would be willing to go shopping with my girlfriend if I could even get one." 

"If my husband tells me he'd rather go game than shop with me I'll get really mad."
