Why Men Are Never Depressed

I received this in an email from my husband and thought it was worth posting.

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.
  • 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.
  • The occasional well-rendered belch is practically expected.
  • 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 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.
  • Your belly usually hides your big hips.
  • 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.

Amazing how much truth is in your post. Especially the shoe line. If shoe companies had to rely on men for business most would go the way of the horse and buggy.

I might add too that men can also claim completing their Christmas shopping early because it is finished on the 24th.

As I think about this post it may also prove that men are less vain! :)

I'm pretty sure this list was written by a man.

I agree that the vast majority of men are less vain than women, but vainness in men is becoming more and more common. :-p ;-)

Rose, I can't figure out what you're trying to say. Is it really too naughty to tell?!

Dawn, I must say that you handled yourself with class in our latest discussion at bluecollar. I appreciate your input there. Please be a regular. May I have your permission to link to you?

Mark, thank you. I feel like we were all civil to each other (with one hiccup and I think that has been patched up...Thank the LORD) and I appreciate that. I also appreciate that we can be straightforward while at the same time still have fun with each other.

I would be honored to be linked by you. May I have your permission to link to you?

Take Care,
Dawn
