Men are just Happier People

I forgot how much I loved this post from my 1st year of blogging. Here it is again for those of you who might have missed it.

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.      

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.

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.

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.

A woman has the last word in any argument.

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

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

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

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.


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.

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.

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


 Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

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.

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



Love this!!!

This is totally brilliant!!!! I love this and am going to pass it along to everyone I know. And it could not be any more true...I would also add (based on personal experience) that when a man and woman are in the same car looking for a place they have never been...the woman after getting lost for 10 minutes will stop and ask, call to find out, etc....the man will keep on driving, sometimes in circles for HOURS, just to not have to ask! Yep...I know there are heads nodding in agreement over this one! Such a fun post...

Because of my contrary nature, I wanted to be able disagree! Alas, I cannot! It is all too true!
Just in time for our 10 year anniversary!
