Men Are Just Happier People

NICKNAMES
· If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.
· If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, meat head and butthead.

EATING OUT
· When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.
· When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.

MONEY
· A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
· A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.

BATHROOMS
· A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel.
· The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.

ARGUMENTS
· A woman has the last word in any argument.
· Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

FUTURE
· A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
· A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

SUCCESS
· A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
· A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

MARRIAGE
· A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
· A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.

DRESSING UP
· A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.
· A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.

NATURAL
· Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
· Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

OFFSPRING
· Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.
· A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
A married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!

I'll take your word for it! 8)

Actually most of the amusing stuff I get is from a mate who retired to Bulgaria ... he's apparently got little else to do there :)

Wouldn't life be even grander if we had this energy level?

OOOPPS! This guy was northbound and ended up on my side of the highway missing the center guardrail by a few feet.

I wasn't able to get the pic of the driver sitting on the roadside behind the truck eating a takeaway lunch.

My luck as usual - I spend an hour watering the orchard and now it's raining hard! Some princess or other royal came to visit our village today. Sound truck came through in advance to say that no trucks or laundry would be visible along her route through town.

Guess that means we all ride motorbikes and wear dirty clothes. :lol:

I like it and would expect the same consideration when I come through. Just where is that now.

Oh and send a little of that rain up north. :mrgreen:

I'm about 85 km north of KC. Hope the rain heads your way and clear skies for me tomorrow as I'm off to Korea tomorrow night.
