Don't Worry, Be Happy

As some of you may know I am trying to have a better outlook on life. Just trying to be grateful for what I have and enjoy life a little more. Well Mrs. Shife just sent me over a list that shows by just being a man I have plenty of reasons to be happy.

Men Are Just Happier People

  2. Your last name stays put.
  3. The garage is all yours.
  4. Wedding plans take care of themselves.
  5. Chocolate is just another snack.
  6. You can be President.
  7. You can never be pregnant.
  8. You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park. You can wear NO shirt to a water park.
  9. Car mechanics tell you the truth.
  10. The world is your urinal.
  11. You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky.
  12. You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt.
  13. Same work, more pay.
  14. Wrinkles add character.
  15. Wedding dress $5000. Tux rental-$100.
  16. People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them.
  17. The occasional well-rendered belch is practically expected.
  18. New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet.
  19. One mood all the time.
  20. Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat.
  21. You know stuff about tanks.
  22. A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase.
  23. You can open all your own jars.
  24. You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness.
  25. If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be your friend.
  26. Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack.
  27. Three pairs of shoes are more than enough.
  28. You almost never have strap problems in public.
  29. You are unableto see wrinkles in your clothes.

    Ha Ha!

    Women CAN be President...the only problem is that men are too ignorant to vote for a woman.

    I don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut or screw.

    My new shoes don't do any of those because I refuse to wear heels ever again.

    I have one mood all of the time: BITCHY.

    My phone conversations are short, too.

    Women can open their own jars...we just have to let you men THINK we need you.

    ;)

  5. "You can open all your own jars."

  6. yup, we men can also relax and be wrong once in a while. women have to be right 100% of the time.

    if we gloat to much, i'm told we come back as women in the next life.

  7. Yep, I especially like "same work, more pay" and "one mood all the time". That whole work thing is pretty sweet huh? All those perks PLUS more money to boot? All just for having a dangly thing betwixt the legs? Deal.

    Yes, the blog has been restored. Blogger actually does have tech support after all.
    Nothing wrong with taking lunches by yourself. I've read a lot of good books that way or just enjoyed watching the world go by in peace and quiet. Ahhhh....

    The whole menstruating thing...oh man. I'm so happy to be a man.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Being a man I have no problem with. The whole peeing outdoors thing has been good to me. Being a BROKE man is the thing that is starting to bother me.

    All true.



    Say hi to the bassett hound for me. I thought of him over the weekend. Remember The Cuz's fat beagal? He's skinny now! Amazing what not feeding him 8 times a day will do for a dog.

  24. I totally snarked at most of those...I mean, come on, it's 2006 already. And then I read the one about doing your nails with a pocketknife. That one really spoke to me. In the heart burn kind of way.

  25. All I can say is "Righty tighty, lefty loosey"

    And if a guy's not wearing a shirt, you bet your sweet bippy I'll be staring at his chest! :)

  33. The lack of not having to sit to pee on this list bothers me.

    Also the ability to scratch ourselves wherever and whenever we damn well please is definitely a plus.
