The Husband Shopping Center
The “Husband Shopping Center” opened, giving women a place to choose a husband from many men. It was laid out in five floors, with the men increasing in positive attributes as you ascended up the floors. The only rule was, once you opened the door to any floor, you must either choose a man from that floor or leave. There was no going back.
So, a couple of girlfriends go to the place to find men. On the first floor, the door had a sign that read, “These men have jobs and love kids.” The women read the sign and say “Well that’s better than not having jobs, or not loving kids, but I wonder what’s further up?” So up they go.
The sign on the second floor door read, These men have high paying jobs, love kids, and are extremely good looking” Hmmm, say the girls. But, I wonder what’s further up?”.
Third floor: “These men have high paying jobs, are extremely good looking, love kids and help with the housework.” “Wow!”, say the women. “Very tempting, BUT, there’s more further up!?” And so again, they go up.
Fourth floor: “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. But just think!?!?! What must be awaiting us further on!”
So up to the fifth floor they go. The sign on that door said “This floor is empty and exists only to prove that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping and have a nice day.”
