Your Thoughts on Suicide

Post Re: Your Thoughts on Suicide
Husband Store
A store that sells new husbands has opened in New York City , where a woman may 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 you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs

She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.

'That's nice,' she thinks, 'but I want more.'

So she continues upward. The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.

'Wow,' she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.

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

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 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.


----

To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opened a New Wives store just across the street.

The first floor has wives that love sex.

The second floor has wives that love sex and have money and like beer.

The third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited.

Post Re: Your Thoughts on Suicide
I was hosting a party some years ago and my friend Bill and his wife were there. Bill was talking to a small group of women (his wife not present but my girlfriend at the time was) and said "If Debbie ever left me they'd find me the next morning face down in the river."

My girlfriend came up a short time later and relayed this story to me and said "Isn't that romantic?" to which I replied, "Romantic?!? Are you kidding me? Depressing is what I'd call it." We weren't dating 3 months later.

I'm currently married (to a different woman) and God knows I love her, but if she ever left me, suicide would not be in my top 10 options. I'd be saddened, maybe angry depending on the circumstances (and at this point I'm putting the likelihood of it happening at about 10%), but there's a difference between "giving yourself" to someone and "giving in" to someone.
