High Expectations

A friend of mine told me about this new Husband Shopping Center where a woman could go to choose from among many men for her husband.  It was laid out in five floors, with the men increasing in positive attributes as you ascended up the floors.

The only rule was once you opened the door to any floor, you must choose a man from that floor and if you went up a floor, you couldn't go back down except to leave the place.  So, a couple of girl friends go to the place to find a man as a prospective husband.

First floor, the door had a sign saying: "These men have jobs and love kids." The women read the sign and say, "Well that's better than not having jobs or not loving kids, but I wonder what's further up". So up they go.

Second floor says: "These men have high-paying jobs, love kids, and are extremely good-looking." "Hmmm," say the girls.  "But, I wonder what's further up?

Third floor: "These men have high-paying jobs, are extremely good-looking, love kids, and help with the housework. "Wow!  say the women.  "Very tempting, BUT, there's more further up!"  And up they go.

Fourth floor: "These men have high-paying jobs, love kids, are extremely good-looking, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak." "Oh, mercy me.  But just think!  What must be awaiting us further on!" So up to the fifth floor they go.  

The sign on that door said: "This floor is just to prove that women are impossible to please."
