Weekend shopping

The Husband Store

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

You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next 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 Drop-dead Gorgeous."

"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going. She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:

"Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous and Help With Housework."

"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!" Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:

"Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with 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 New Husband Store."

To avoid gender bias accusations, the store's owner also opens a New Wives' store just across the street..........

The Wife Store

The first floor has wives that love sex.

The second floor has wives that love sex and have money.

The third through sixth floors have never been visited.

Yep, I'll agree with that - "women are impossible to please" - but it's only because we have such high standards! :) x x

Loved the blog and am attempting to deduce your sex from it. Quite difficult.

A woman once demonstrated that we were not suited when at the end of a difference of opinion she said - look do you want to be right or do you want to be happy. Although we never met again I did send her a small bunch of flowers with a note thanking her for her honesty.

My deduction, a woman.

Good blog,


Methinks i would be looking for one that could cook as well,,repair the car,, decorate,,and have a great job,,so i could play golf,, and go fishing all week,, :)

Sounds good to me.

Can't see the reason for confusion myself. We're looking for cheerful, competent, imaginitive cooks and DIYers. A spot of gardening skill wouldn't come amiss either! The shop is half built. It should have 12 floors.

LOL hahaha :o :)

A female friend of mine would want to know which floor sold the bicycles

Hilarious thread!


Very good. In my area I have found the men to generally be very sexist and of very poor quality. I would settle for one with a job, who isn't an alkie and doesn't hit women!
