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.
