11 photos of men who have accepted their Christmas shopping fate

Waiting, interminable waiting.

SHOPPING AROUND CHRISTMAS is the hardest of hard slogs.

And some men out there have accepted that it’s not for them. So they wait:

1. Like this man contemplating life

The Plight of Man

2. And even Santa himself had to wait it out

3. This guy was on trolley duty but gave up the ghost

Come on #miserablemen, I thought we were going to stand our ground this year and stay home!

4. They wait in flocks

Are those the gates of hell?
