Why men are never depressed

I am assured by a good friend who sent this that it is ‘an oldie but a goodie’ but somehow I’ve never seen it before. That means I can’t imagine that anyone else has!
I do think it’s worth a run here and I hope you get some fun from it. There’s just enough truth in it to make men even happier and women to sigh a little more deeply.
Men Are 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.
Chocolate is just another snack. 
You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park.
You can wear NO shirt to a water park.
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. 
Wrinkles add character.
Wedding dress $5000. Tux rental-$100.
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.
A five-day holiday requires only one suitcase.
You can open all your own jars.
You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness.
If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be your friend.
Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack.
Three pairs of shoes are more than enough.
You almost 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 happy.


  1. Ha! Though this is not exactly the man I live with, who takes more clothes to go away than I do :) One mood all the time -tick. (someone has to be stable)
    My favourite is 'you get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness'. TRUE!

  2. Yes - sometimes I think I rely on that last one too much.... I must mend my ways.

  3. One mood all the time??? I wish.

    errr. Better be careful what I wish for. Must specify which mood first.

  4. Compared to what's in my tiny brain that wants to come out, it's nothing! But thanks Joan... I think. Epic can mean many things! :) I'm being optimistic here.... You're right about specifying the mood. Stay clear of Grumpy Old Men like me....
