A store that sells new husbands has just opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates.

You may visit the store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the attributes of the men increase as the shopper ascends the flights.

There is, however, a catch: you may choose any man from a particular floor, or you may choose to go up a floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband.

On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 - These men have jobs.

The second floor sign reads:

Floor 2 - These men have jobs and love kids.

The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 - These men have jobs, love kids, and are extremely good looking.

"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads:

Floor 4 - These men have jobs, love kids, are drop-dead good looking and help with the housework.

"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it"

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads: .

Floor 5 - These men have jobs, love kids, are drop-dead gorgeous, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

Just as a side note...wimmin do not suffer from the affliction of "selective hearing" as most married men do.

[lol]

(and yes, I thought it was funny, but I got one from the 3rd floor. [wink] )

When Marlyn and I met, she owned a nice Singer sewing machine. I showed her some nifty tricks with it. And I used to do my own sewing, with a machine. Not to mention cooking and cleaning, but I hate doing dishes.

Thank God I'm not married yet! [shock] [lol]

P.S...Selective hearing is not an affliction that we suffer from...It is an evolutionary trait that we have gained over the years.

Oh, that's the worst kind. High maintenance, but think they're low maintenance. [wink] My wife is the same way, always ordering the dressing on the side.

I'd have to say the same about Marlyn, low maintanence. Our latest sort of adoptee has a high maintanence girlfriend and is not liking it.

I was the elevator attendant and after my girl realized what happened, she didn't want to leave empty handed.

TRUST me I know what high maintenance is.

Mine came from the 4th floor. He does cook and clean also. [lol]
Actually, mine does too, but I wasn't looking for it, so it was totally icing on the cake. [lol] [wink]

C-Pher, do you see what is happening here? They are talking as if they OWN us!

Be worried, be very worried! [roll]

They're nowheres near as slow as a LAWYER.

My wife was issued me by the government. We actually met at dinner one evening, in the Mess Hall, with a mutual friend.
