Drag, carry or haul, particularly unnecessary things, parcels or baggage, particularly a wife’s parcels or baggage- Jewish men are trained from an early age to get used to shlepping. By the time they get married, they just automatically look for things to shlep and places to shlep to. What a life!!!! Everyone hopes that one day they will be able to afford to hire someone to shlep for us….but even when that day comes, we often help the shlepper shlep so we shouldn’t feel guilty. Are you following? This word carries a lot of weight in our culture. In fact, I’m amused thinking that many people use this word and don’t even realize that they’re speaking Yiddish!!
