Husband Superstore

Recently a "Husband Super Store" opened where women could go to choose a husband from among many men. It was laid out over five floors, with the men increasing in positive attributes as you ascended.

The only rule was, once you opened the door to any floor, you HAD to choose a man from that floor; if you went up a floor, you couldn't go back down except to leave the place, never to return.

A couple of girlfriends went to the shopping centre to find some husbands.

First floor
The door had a sign saying, "These men have jobs and love kids."
The women read the sign and said, "Well, that's better than not having a job or not loving kids, but I wonder what's further up?" So up they went.

Second floor
The sign read, "These men have high paying jobs, love kids, and are extremely good looking."
"Hmmm," said the ladies, "But, I wonder what's further up?"

Third floor
This sign read, "These men have high paying jobs, are extremely good looking, love kids and help with the housework."
"Wow," said the women, "Very tempting." But there was another floor, so further up they went."

Fourth floor
This door had a sign saying "These men have high paying jobs, love kids, are extremely good looking, help with the housework and have a strong romantic streak."
"Oh, mercy me," they cried, "Just think what must be awaiting us further on!"

So up to the fifth floor they went.

Fifth floor
The sign on that door said, "This floor is empty and exists only to prove that women are f**king impossible to please. The exit is to your left, we hope you fall down the stairs."

  3. Oh, don't worry BloggerNoggin. Your post was cool, you didn't have to remove them. You were pretty deep there man. :^)

  4. Thanks for the reassurance Pete. My intellectual wheels were greased pretty good, at least that's what I thought Then again, when that happens the reasoning is not where it should be.

  5. Ah jeez Pete, I just spit Apple-Jacks everywhere! That was really good.


  6. That was a good laugh. Thanks.

  7. It is quite embarrissubg being a female and reading something like this. But it is true and I wish all women could read it.

    I wonder though if 'women' somehow think that society measures them on the success and in turn they expect it from the man.

    Think about it this way. There was a time when women who wanted to be stay and home mums and were happy with the small things were frowned upon. So then women felt pressured to be 'up to standard' of society.

    Me, myself, I am glad all this is coming out because as a female I am sick of all the pressures and expectations. I hated it all from teenage years.

    In fact, I am starting to question, "Why do I have handbags? Why are shoes of importance?"

    Alongside femenism is commercialism. Both are crap. I don't measure my success anymore on material things. I have had the chances and opportunites to be successful when it came to position and material possessions and I have worked hard along the way to achieve these things. But, I never got to the top. And not because I was incapable but because it was never in my heart. It was always against what I really wanted. The simple things in life.

    Why do I have to age to learn this lesson?

    Also, I see many teenagers rebeling society just as I did and for the same reasons. They look at the world and think, "Far out, what a mess and how false."

    I wish we could teach them that they have a better understanding and a better way just by following their own hearts than the adults.
