[08:20.74]Passage

[08:23.98]The Difference between Men's Shopping Style and Women's Shopping Style

[08:30.33]The Spring Festival is approaching.

[08:34.90]As a tradition,people are supposed to have something new to use or wear,

[08:41.74]especially children,no matter they are rich or poor.

[08:47.52]Therefore,you can see many families going shopping on the streets.

[08:54.36]And,interestingly enough,

[08:58.20]you may notice that men's shopping style is different from that of women.

[09:04.55]Let's look at men's clothes shops:A man comes into a shop,

[09:11.39]has a glance at the whole shop and goes to his target area.

[09:17.87]He has a brief look of the colors

[09:21.71]and begins to ask the shop assistant for the right size.

[09:26.88]He tries it on,

[09:30.44]extending his arms or kicking his legs to check if it is comfortable enough.

[09:38.17]The clothing fits him and he asks for a plastic bag.

[09:43.50]He pays the money,puts the new dress in the bag and leaves the shop.

[09:49.87]The deal is done in only a few minutes.

[09:54.55]If the dress is sold in package,he doesn't want to be bothered to unpack it.

[10:01.81]So,you see men's shopping is quite direct and hence time-saving.

[10:08.34]Now enters a couple.

[10:12.28]The man is just doing the same as the previous man.

[10:17.56]The difference is that the lady checks it carefully before she pays.

[10:23.73]She examines the surface of the dress,

[10:28.48]turns it over and check the inner side as well.

[10:33.73]She pays much attention to the stitches and the ironing.

[10:39.09]Only when she is sure that the clothes seem perfect will she pay.

[10:44.86]A lady is more careful when shopping.

[10:49.59]Now,let's move to see a ladies'clothes shop.

[10:55.23]What do you expect to see there?

[10:59.28]Many husbands are carrying bags and holding their wives'clothes

[11:05.13]while the ladies are busy trying on the new clothes.

[11:10.20]They try several clothes of the same size but different colors;

[11:15.94]or the same color but different styles again and again.

[11:21.82]They stand in front of the mirrors and see how they look like from the front.

[11:28.07]They turn their backs to the mirror,

[11:32.14]twisted heads struggling to see how they look like from the back;

[11:37.89]if the color,size and style are right.

[11:42.85]They look smart in the new dresses.

[11:47.21]However,they go to some other shops to try more.

[11:52.67]They don't make their decisions until they are too exhausted to move on

[11:58.73]or their husbands complain too much.

[12:02.78]Sometimes,even though the clothes fit them well,

[12:08.74]They go hoime without the desired clothes

[12:13.00]because they want their friends'comment on the dresses.

[12:17.44]If the majority of their friends say OK,they rush back to the shop and get them.

[12:24.39]Of course,they don't forget to examine the clothes carefully.

[12:30.03]Maybe,more carefully than they do to their husbands'dresses before paying.

[12:36.90]See,women's shopping is exhausting but interesting.

[12:42.36]After visiting the men's and women's clothes shops,

[12:47.71]shall we visit the kids'clothes shop?

[12:51.84]Including the kids'own views on what they would like to wear,

[12:57.17]the parents discuss about what they should wear.

[13:01.84]The dads may have found the"proper"dress in no time,

[13:07.41]but the moms insist on the kids'trying different colors,sizes,styles and materials.

[13:15.35]They help the children to try on as many times as possible

[13:21.02]without worrying about the health of children.

[13:25.56]Most often,the dads lose their patience and wait outside the shop.

[13:32.04]They have the same attiudes as that buying their own clothes.

[13:37.68]Why does this happen?

[13:41.24]First,men usually know what they need before shopping,

[13:47.40]and they are more determined,while women are less sure about what to buy

[13:53.57]and they may easily change their minds.

[13:57.72]Second,men are not as patient as women.

[14:03.28]Most of all,men have fewer choices than women.

[14:08.88]Men's clothes don't change the color or style as quickly as women's clothes.

[14:15.41]The common colors for men are white,black,brown,gray or coffee.

[14:23.35]The styles are suits,jackets,coats,jeans,jumpers,vests and trousers.

[14:32.88]however,for ladies,the color may be any pur color or a mixture of them.

[14:40.54]Besides the same styles as men's the ladies'dresses very.

[14:46.18]A little change in either collar,cuff,length and width of sleeves and legs,

[14:53.83]the place and design of different types of flowers,

[14:58.80]the number and size of some designs,

[15:03.05]the English words and Chinese characters may make the dresses different.

[15:08.93]Even the size and design and color of buttons may make the dresses special.

[15:15.49]No wonder women spend so much time and energy on shopping.

[27:23.86]Supplementary Reading

[27:28.22]Supermarket

[27:31.88]Supermarket is,indeed,an inner-side market.

[27:38.25]It functions as a small street.

[27:42.80]One can buy anything conceivable in it,and it has many other functions:

[27:51.05]a post office,a bank,a travel agency,a film development centre,and a restaurant.

[28:00.72]Before your shopping there,you'd better prepare a shopping list.

[28:06.96]Why is that?Because there are so many attractive things inviting you to buy,

[28:14.90]and your bill will grow too big.

[28:19.34]If you intend to do shopping for a whole week for a family of three,

[28:25.80]you need to push a trolley before you enter a supermarket.

[28:31.54]If you bring a baby with you,do not worry.

[28:37.00]Some trolleys have a baby-seat,and there are feeding rooms if your baby is hungry.

[28:44.94]If you need a few things,

[28:49.20]you enter the supermarket and carry a basket the market provides you;

[28:55.37]if your child wants to learn shopping,you can get a children's trolley for him.

[29:02.24]When you enter a supermarket,you see lots and lots of shelves full of food;

[29:09.89]plenty and plenty of rails full of clothes for both young and old,male and female;

[29:17.47]you feel the coolness in summer and warmness in winter;

[29:23.11]you can smell the delicious chicken drum stick and thighs;

[29:29.06]the various ready-cooked dishes;

[29:33.74]and the smell of baozi being cooked in the steaming pot

[29:39.10]if you are in a Chinese supermarket;

[29:43.35]you can taste some samples for the new types of goods,or for the promotion;

[29:50.30]you can feel chilly air in the frozen-food department;

[29:56.78]and you may hear some soft-slow music as yoiu walk between the shelves.

[30:03.13]You might be frightened by the size of the market and feel puzzled where to find what you need.

[30:10.89]If you have plenty of time,you can just wonder her and there;

[30:17.13]if you have little time,you need not worry.

[30:22.77]Usually,there are boards with the names of the departments hanging above

[30:29.43]or fastened to the shelves;you can also ask the shop guards for help.

[30:36.28]Other customers are also very helpful if you ask them.

[30:42.16]Some goods are not on the open shelves because they are either too valuable,

[30:49.00]or too small,or can be consumed in the market without being noticed.

[30:56.37]For exampole,some valuable batteries,cigarettes,

[31:02.90]jewellery are usually sold with the shop assistant to get you what you need.

[31:10.16]When you are picking up your choices,you may feel it is hard to decide.

[31:16.92]Different packages for the same item.

[31:21.47]On every countable item,there is a price label.

[31:27.11]What may cause your attention is the label sealed to the shelves.

[31:33.59]For example,a carton of 6eggs is labeled 66 pence

[31:40.96]while the carton of a dozen eggs is labeled f1.08.

[31:48.22]The label fastened on the shelves says:"a carton in 6 eggs,11p for each"

[31:56.76]and"a carton of a dozen eggs,9p for each".

[32:02.53]This makes you think it is cheaper to buy the larger package.

[32:08.49]In fact,the market is making money by the total amount of the deal.

[32:15.65]The larger the amount is,the more money teh market makes.

[32:21.50]The validity is crucial in teh supermarket.

[32:26.96]A day or two before the due,

[32:31.11]the market begins to sell it at a cheaper price by adding a new price tag,

[32:37.96]or the big notice "On sale"or"Buy one,get one free",or"Buy two,get the third free".

[32:47.80]Often,you buy more things than you have planned.

[32:53.97]For checking out,usually there are long lines at each cashier.

[33:00.63]If you have got many things in your trolley,follow the people with trolleys,

[33:07.89]because some cashier desks do"Baskets Only"or"Less Than 10 ltems".

[33:15.83]You can pay by cash,credit cards,shop membercards or check.

[33:22.00]Coming out of the supermarket,push your trolley until you reach your car.

[33:28.66]Return the trolley after emptying it.

[33:33.02]You may leave the trolleys around,but don't leave them on the drive.
