A store has just opened in New York City, it sells husbands, here a busy career woman may go to choose a husband. A notice in the reception lounge explains the store procedure:
WELCOME TO THE HUSBAND STORE You may visit this store ONLY ONCE!
There are six floors, the attributes of the men increase as the shopper ascends each flight. You may choose any man from a particular floor or you may decide to go up to the next floor. When you have left a floor you may not return. You cannot go back down except to exit the building.
So, a woman goes to the Husband Store â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦..
On the first floor the sign on the door reads: â€œThese men have jobs and love the Lordâ€
â€Nice but I want something more than just a steady husband, Iâ€™ll carry on to the next floor.â€
The second floor sign reads: â€œThese men have jobs, love the Lord, and love kidsâ€
â€œOh, that sounds better, but I need some excitement, Iâ€™ll try the next floor.â€
The third floor sign reads: â€œThese men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids and are good lookingâ€
"Wow, this is getting better. Letâ€™s try the next floor."
The fourth floor and sign reads: â€œThese men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are good looking
and enjoy houseworkâ€
"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it, I must hurry to floor 5"
The fifth floor sign reads: â€œThese men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are drop-dead gorgeous, enjoy housework, and are very romanticâ€
She is tempted to stay and choose a husband from this floor, but cannot resist the urge to carry on to the sixth and final floor.
The sixth floor sign reads: â€œYou are visitor 4,363,012 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 visiting the Husband Store. Please watch your step as you exit the building, have a nice dayâ€
