Men have it so easy

I read this somewhere and thought men needed to hear it.

I had a thought the other day, “Why are men such happy people?”

What do you expect from such simple creatures? Your last name stays put. The garage is all yours. Wedding plans take care of themselves. Here’s a few more:

Chocolate is just another snack. You can be president. You can never be pregnant. You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park. You can wear no T-shirt to a water park.

Car mechanics tell you the truth. 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. Wedding dress — $5,000. Tuxedo rental — $100. People never stare at your chest when you’re talking to them. The occasional well-rendered belch is practically expected. These are just a few reasons why men should be happy people.
