Why Men are Never Depressed

Men Are Just Happier People:

Your last name stays put.
The garage is all yours.
Wedding plans take care of themselves.
Chocolate is just another snack.
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.
People never stare at your chest when you’re talking to them.
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 and engines.
A ten-day vacation requires only one suitcase.
You can open all your own jars.
You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness.
Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack.
Three pairs of shoes are more than enough.
You 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.
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.


Oh, one more thing. I have been knitting. I promise. That’s why there has been very little blogging. I planned on posting a knitting update tonight, but I got caught up knitting.  Go figure. Anyway, tomorrow is the big day of knitterly love here at KnitLit. Unless I get the knitting fever again.

  2. Buck just says we women are “funny”. When he can’t risk saying anything else, for fear of getting knocked up side the head or worse, he says ???? is “funny” In this case, he’s right!

  3. Yep, women are funny. However, i’m not sure about this “Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack” since Nancy does the shopping.
