A store opened in New York City where women could go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:

  • You may visit this store ONLY ONCE!
  • There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but she cannot go back down except to exit the building!

A typical woman went to this store and on the first floor the sign on the door read:
Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs.

The second floor sign read:
Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.

The third floor sign read:
Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are extremely Good Looking.

“Wow,” she thinks, but still feels compelled to keep going.

The fourth floor sign read:
Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Good-Looking, and Help With Housework.

“Oh, mercy me!” she exclaims, “I can hardly stand it!”

Still, she goes to the fifth floor where the sign read:
Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.

She is sorely tempted to stay, but goes on to the sixth floor where the sign read:
Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.
