Men Are Just Happier People


NICKNAMES
If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.


  If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Godzilla and Four-Eyes.      

 



EATING OUT
When the bill arrives, Mike Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50.  None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.


When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.




MONEY
A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.


A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.




BATHROOMS
A man has seven items in his bathroom:  toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, shampoo and a towel...


The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337.  A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.




ARGUMENTS
A woman has the last word in any argument.


Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.



FUTURE
A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.


A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.



SUCCESS
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.


A successful woman is the one who can find such a man.

 



MARRIAGE
A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.


A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.




DRESSING UP
A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.

 

A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.





NATURAL
Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.

 

 Women somehow deteriorate during the night.





OFFSPRING
Ah, children.  A woman knows all about her children.  She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.

 

A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.



THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
A married man should forget his mistakes.  There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!

This just made me smile from ear to ear. So true, bless their hearts! Except I'm usually the one who puts down too much money at a group lunch. I have alot of family members who work or have worked in the restaurant business, so I tend to overtip (unless the service was horrid) But my favorite is the arguments, I've been saying that for years lol.

So true, so cute! You are amazing with this post! I love it! Except, I will pay $2. for a $1. item and my husband will print a coupon, drive 30 minutes, and order an item that he has a coupon for that takes 6 weeks to come. He will go back in 6 weeks and his coupon will have expired and he will drive home and print out another coupon and go get the $2. item for $1.90!!
Really really true story!!
XO's
