    Has anyone had that one moment where looking for the item you want to purchase is a huge pain in the ass? I'm starting to have those moments these days. Being a guy whose favorite color is pink isn't easy. Sure, its easy to find pink items for gaming but clothes and bikes are a bitch! Want a pink bike that's 26" and above? Prepare to pay a nice premium for it. It's as if pink paint is a rarity or something :P

    I agree.
    As a 6'6 guy who wears a xxl it is hard to find t-shirts I'm into because most are for kids (adults like Mario and sonic and spongebob too people!!)

    It's not the pink paint that's rare, it's that dudes that want things painted pink are rare so they don't make much of that stuff.

    I see that POV but choices would be nice. For instance, I want a nice pair or white and pink tennis shoes. Because of that, I'll have to go out of my way to hunt down a store that sell oversized women's shoes because the average store do not have the right size I require.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    i hate when i am in a big shopping place, or diferent shops in a town
    all of them got the same iventory... the exact same games on the shelves, the same appliances, the same computers phones...
    it is both the brands and the models... i noticed this a lot on the several cities on my country...
    if i look for a product online and would like to purchase in the retail (which is easier for warranty or if i need help\suppport)
    very very rarely i can find exactly what i want on retail, and when looking for it, i really notice, the stores got the same exact products...

    Cans of spray paint are not hard to get, various wraps are also not hard to source. If you are not up for it (and painting is not my favourite game) then a simple bike frame should not break the bank either, especially if you are otherwise considering a premium.

    Anyway "That Moment Where You Hate Shopping"

    Moment, moment? I detest shopping with every fibre of my being. How anybody can browse for pleasure I will never know.

    Because they are middle aged women with nothing better to do.

    I was referring those who go into Walmart and other stores like JC Penney or target just to walk and look around.

    Personally I like to go on ebay, Amazon, and new egg and browse every now in then

    Here's something. I HATE eBay's list system. Why do I need a watchlist, wish list and collection??? Even worse, you can make multiple list within the watch list but you can't add items into those additional list from every version of eBay. The whole damn thing is a cluster fuck and doesn't make my shopping experience as enjoyable.

    I am a pre-everything trans*girl. Finding clothes to fit me is a serious pain in the ass.

    6ft, trying to find a pair of 28 or 29 by 30 jeans is a royal pain in the ass. I refuse to switch to girl jeans due to no pockets. I hate clothes shopping with a passion unless if I am with someone. Even then, I whine.

    Mostly older women. Sometimes I see younger women shop when I am running stuff to other stock rooms.

    Pockets are overrated when you have a purse. It's just cute to have them there and nothing else.

    Yeah, I'm always sticking my wife's randoms in my pocket. I get that women's clothing is made to show curvature but damn, at least make cargo styled pockets or something.
