Why men are never depressed...


Needed a good laugh today. Got this from my brother-in-law and thought I'd share it with you guys. I can't say that I totally agree with everything written below but what-the-heck it was downright funny! Common' ladies! Let's hear it from the boys!

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. 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 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. 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.

Well at least that's what they think. =)

Oh, Sweetie...the men didn't write this one! A woman wrote it, I'm sure of it. LOL! It's still hilarious.

@@@Shelly - LOL, isn't it just hilarious. =)

Colin said...

Absolutely wicked, I love it lol, I'll let you know about the wrinkles when I get them, as for the wedding dress....don't think they do my size hahaha. Do you know, I start my Christmas shopping in the January sales, so much easier. As for phone calls, if mine only lasted 30 seconds I'd save a fortune :o)
We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.

Thanks for sharing those words of wisdom my friend :o)

@@@Colin - LOL, I could not stop laughing at your comment. You're even funnier than the post. I loved the bit about the wedding dress, haha. Glad you found some wisdom in this post my friend. =)

Colin said...

LOL my friend, I have a wicked sense of humour hahaha. I don't think they do my colour either, and apart from that I think I'd look pretty damned stupid and would need more than a veil to cover my face :o)

Sophiagurl said...

I have to admit it,'some' of them are quite true!In one occassion,I did wear an un-ironed shirt to work and only noticed it when somebody informed me,actually,what happened was I took out the wrong shirt from the wardrobe while still in a sleeping mood.
3 pairs of shoes is definitely more than enough for me.
I don't need a pocket knife to do my nails because I can use my teeth,but of course not anymore now!
I always try my best to do all my shoppings in one shop.

Sophiagurl said...

"The world is your urinal"
OHH priceless...it's so funny one of girlfriends and I were just talking about how men can compartmentalize their life.. like we can work and still think about whats going in other aspects of our life but they don't... we reached the conclusion that women are simply better at multi-tasking and perhaps thats our downfall
Such a fun post!!!

Sophiagurl said...

@@@Random Magus - haha, you are sooo right. and I liked that line too. I'm glad I made you smile today.
