The store that sells husbands. . .

A store that sells husbands has just opened in Dallas, TX , where women may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates.
"You may visit the store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the attributes of the men increase as the shopper ascends the flights. There is, however, a catch. You may choose any man from a particular floor, or you may choose to go up a 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 extremely good looking.

"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads:
Floor 4 - These men have jobs, love kids, are drop-dead good looking and help with the housework.

"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!"

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads:
Floor 5 -
These men have jobs, love kids, are drop-dead gorgeous, help with the 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 with us.

Three men were hiking through a forest when they came upon a large,
raging, violent river.
Needing to get on the other side, the first man prayed,"God, please
give me the strength to cross the river."
Poof! God gave him big arms and strong legs and he was able to swim
across in about 2 hours, having almost drowned twice.
After witnessing that, the second man prayed, "God, please give me
strength and the tools to cross the river."
Poof! God gave him a rowboat and strong arms and strong legs and he
was able to row across in about an hour after almost capsizing once.
Seeing what happened to the first two men, the third man prayed,
"God,please give me the strength, the tools and the intelligence to cross
this river." Poof! He was turned into a woman. She checked the map, hiked one hundred yards upstream and walked across the bridge.

that explains it all. no wonder some men never have a girl or wife.

although no such store exists, besides shopping, finding a partner is one of the main reasons women go to the mall.

Lexcen: Thank you for dedicating me with some intelligence and if I had come to that store you know, I would have asked the owner if the search started in the basement, because many stores have products for sale also there.Many times I have found a jewel where others though there where only trash.
Once was when I was in the main marked here in Cairo, Khan El Khalili, where you can buy everything from used teeths to pure golden. I whent into one jeweler and picked out a turqoize from a bag with a million different gems. I payd about LE 20,- (US $ 3,50)Some years later I went to Israel. Theere I wanted to make a ring of it and went into a jeweler. He looked at it and said: "If you want to leave this with me, you first have to injurance it for US $ 10 000,- Because this is an seldom beautiful and expencive piece of turqoize."
HAH...He should only have known...
