We recently wrote about a guy who came up with a clever game to deal with his boredom when he went shopping with his girlfriend, but we should never forget the countless other men who, for one reason or another, weren’t so lucky. This is the goal of the Miserable Men Instagram account – to honor and memorialize their boredom and suffering.

Judging by their poses and facial expressions, these guys have been here for a while. Whether you’re a man or a woman, shopping with your significant other in a store where you don’t want anything at all is tough. Fiddling with your phone and reading all the advertisements will only get you so far before the mall music gets to you and you realize that you might be stuck there forever.

Let’s have a moment of silence for all the people trapped in shopping hell right now.
