The Husband Store

(Before It's News)

My dad sent me this one, and I had to share.

One day a woman happens upon the store and enters the ground floor.  She is met by a large sign that says “All the men on this floor have jobs.”

“Wow,” she thinks, “that’s a good thing, but hardly sufficient to make them marriage material.” So she gets on the elevator and goes to the second floor.  On this floor she is greeted by a sign that says, “On this floor all the men have jobs and like kids.” 

“That’s great, but I have to wonder what’s on the next floor!” so on she goes.

The sign on the third floor says “On this floor all the men have jobs, like kids and help with housework.”  She doesn’t even bother stepping off the elevator – on to the fourth floor.

“On this floor all the men have jobs, like kids, help with housework and are devastatingly handsome.”  On to floor five!

“On this floor all the men have jobs, like kids, help with the housework, are devastatingly handsome and romantic.”

You know what happens next.

When the elevator doors open on the sixth floor, there is only one light lit, the one that illuminates the sign.  THIS sign says, “You are shopper 33,695,427 to reach this floor.  There are no men on this floor.  This floor serves to illustrate that no matter what, no woman can be pleased.  Thank you for confirming our hypothesis.”

Now across the street, the same man built a Wife Store.  Same six floor design, same rules.  On the first floor the sign says “All the women on this floor love sex.”  On the second floor the sign says “All the women on this floor love sex and have money.”

No one has ever visited floors 3 through 6.

  • I read and saved a copy of that 7-8 years ago.
    There some slight differences.
    ————————————-

    “A store that sells new husbands has opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions 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.
    She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads:

    Floor 2 – These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.
    ‘That’s nice,’ she thinks, ‘but I want more.’

    So she continues upward. 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 the sign reads:
    Floor 4 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking 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, where 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 Husband Store.

    PLEASE NOTE:

    To avoid gender bias charges, the store’s owner opened a New Wives store across the street.

    The first floor has wives that love sex.
    The second floor has wives that love sex and have money and like beer
    The third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited.”

    I like the “ONLY ONCE” in the old version :idea:
