Men Are Just Happier People --
What do you expect from such simple creatures?
Your last name stays put.
The garage is all yours.
Wedding plans take care of themselves.
Chocolate is just another snack.
You can be President.
You can never be pregnant.
You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park.
You can wear NO shirt to a water park.
Car mechanics tell you the truth.
The world is your urinal.
You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky.
You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt.
Same work, more pay.
Wrinkles add character.
Wedding dress $5000. Tux rental-$100.
People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them.
New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet.
One mood all the time.
Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat.
You know stuff about tanks.
A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase.
You can open all your own jars.
You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness.
If someone forgets to invite you,
He or she can still be your friend.
Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack.
Three pairs of shoes are more than enough..
You almost never have strap problems in public.
You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes..
Everything on your face stays its original color..
The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades.
You only have to shave your face and neck.
You can play with toys all your life.
One wallet and one pair of shoes -- one color for all seasons.
You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look..
You can 'do' your nails with a pocket knife.
You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache.
You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives
On December 24 in 25 minutes.
No wonder men are happier.

  1. All true and very funny. :)

  2. lol lol... so true and such fun to read..


  3. There's a great deal of gender stereotyping going on here, so I won't comment!

  4. I found them funny, but I think that LL Cool Joe is right about stereotypes.

  5. lol! I can't help laughing because so much of this is true!

  6. Lynn – I agree but some might disagree:)

    Tabor – Bah, Humbug for the post or for the differences in men and women?

    Sonny – I sure got a kick out of it when it was sent to me. Not sure my spouse thought it was as funny:)

    LL Cool Joe -- Sorry, I did mean to title the post “gender stereotyping”. You will forgive me a little fun won’t you? You are brave to be the only guy commenting so far.

    Alessandra – Thanks for commenting on my blog. I’ll have to get over and meet you.

    Changes in the wind – I see it as true also. Especially the world being their urinal.

    Talon – It does all sound true doesn’t it? I’m not sure if it is an insult to men or to women:)

  7. I like the part about Christmas shopping on December 24th. That's what my husband did.

    I used to say that he didn't buy me the first thing he saw, he bought me the only thing that was left.

  8. This was hilarious...I hope you don't mind if I repost!!!

  9. Amen and Happy Easter!

  10. Bwahaha! I needed that laugh...even though it's all true. The underwear part in particular just breaks my heart ;)

  11. Nancy -- I knew both our guys had a lot in common:)

    Brown English Muffin -- Go for it. You are welcome to re-post this since I "borrowed" it in the first place:)

    JeanMac -- Happy Easter to you as well. I'm behind on reading but am hoping all is well in your world.

    Riot Kitty -- Oh yes, the underwear! LOL

  12. This gave me a good laugh and how true it all is. I still wouldn't want to be a man, though.

  13. Each one was funnier than the next! I especially loved the doing your nails with a pocket knife one.
