No Pleasing Women

A store that sells 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 and love the Lord.

The second floor sign reads:

Floor 2 – These men have jobs, love the Lord, and love kids.

The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 – These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, and are extremely good looking.

“Wow,” the woman thinks, but feels compelled to keep going. She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads:

Floor 4 – These men have jobs, love the Lord, 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 the Lord, 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 4,363,012 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. Watch your step as you exit the building, and have a nice day!

    It should be noted that there were many previous Wife Stores in and around NYC, but they were all closed by Gov. Eliot Spitzer in his crusade against human trafficking. This is not hypocracy since “Kristen” was never intended to be ex-Gov. Spitzer’s wife. LOL

    If the strore was any good, there would be a two-week goods-return policy. If the wrapper is undamaged the client would get store credit…

    I think they originally tried that idea but determined that NO man escapes marriage undamaged. LOL!

    I don’t know about all that. However, I think I need the address of this store. I plan to open a “Yes Dear” shop right next to it.

    Have you not heard about the New WIVES store?

    To avoid gender bias charges, the store owner opened a New Wives store just across the street.

    The first floor has wives that love sex.

    The Second floor has wives that love sex, have money and like beer.

    The third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited!!!
