Why are men happier?

I received this in an email and initially took exception too it but decided to post it anyway. II will say that certainly not all these are true for me I will note those at the end

Why Are Men Happier?
Men Are Just Happier People -- What do you expect from such simple creatures?
1-Your last name stays put.
2-The garage is all yours.
3-Wedding plans take care of themselves.
4-Chocolate is just another snack.
5-You can be President.
6-You can never be pregnant.
7-You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park.
8-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. Three pairs of shoes are more than enough.
27-You almost never have strap problems in public.
28-You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes.
29-Everything on your face stays its original colour. The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades..
30-You only have to shave your face and neck.
31-You can play with toys all your life.
32-One wallet and one pair of shoes one colour for all seasons.
33-You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look.
34-You can "do" your nails with a pocket knife.
35-You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache..
36-You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives on Dec 24 in 25 minutes.

No wonder men are happier.

This is my list of "not true for me as a male"

None of the wedding items applied to my marriage and the divorece was amicable and we are still very good friends.

#9 I have been lied to by both mechanics and car salemen more than once. They were costly lessons.
#11 I have seen some restrooms that I owuld not even enter, let alone use. So yes thank goodness for nature as urinal.
#12 I have to think about it almost evrey time.
#17 BS
#18 For those of us with EE feet most dress shoes and most boots result in blister and foot aches.
#19 Read my blogs, or many of the men's blogs, if you think this applies
#20 If a phone conversation is interesting then I wil engage for as long as it takes or until something else intrudes.
#21 HUH???
#22 My last partner always packed less - she said I tried to be to prepared
#24 More BS
#26 I have 5 pairs of river shoes alone, and my recent move I had two app;e crates full of foot wear And that underwaer at 8.95 for three most often fits poorly and binds in places that are most uncomfortable. I have seen woemns for similar prices. You get what you pay for, I guess
#27 If you buy the 3 for 8,95 there may be a need for continual readjusting. LOL
#30 Some of us do shave more for several reasons
#31 And women don;t have there share of "toys"
#32 See #26
#34 No usually need nail clippers at least
#36 I start in Oct becasue I hate crowds and I like the gift to be reflective of thought and hte person to whom it is being given.

All of the rest may me somewhat true.
So how many of these fit or don't fit for you.

Much of the list is based on the lowest common denominator of male development and at times fits us all, but your comments to the list are accurate. One point that most male will never admit to is the moods. A medical study in the 90's found that men have what they called "the male period" at or around their birth date and from personal experience will confirm this to be true.
Like you, on the phone if the person is of interest or family the converstion can be an hour or more.
#6 may be true but know many a man who has suffered as much through a pregnacy as their S/O or spouse.
To complete this list would take a book, but suffice it to say that most men are more complex than the list gives us credit for and the good men are "Gentelman" who know and act as the term applies to the definition of what that means.
ravyn, You keep writing what it is to be a real man and maybe you will teach some of these young buck what the women they want to attract really want in them.
