A store that sells husbands has recently opened in New York.

The store has become very popular, but there are a few simple rules:

Women may only enter the store ONCE to make a purchase. There are 6 floors, and the attributes of the men for sale on each floor are detailed outside. Although you can choose a man from any floor, once you have entered a particular floor you must make a purchase there. You cannot go back down, except when you exit the building.

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a lifelong partner. On the first floor the sign outside reads: ‘Floor 1 – These men have jobs and love the Lord’. She moves on up.

On the next floor the sign reads: ‘Floor 2 – These men have jobs, love the Lord and love kids’. She keeps going.

The sign outside the third floor reads: ‘Floor 3 – These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids and are extremely good-looking’. Still she moves on up.

Next she sees the sign: ‘Floor 4 – These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are extremely good-looking and help with the housework’. Excited now, again she proceeds to the next floor.

The sign outside the fifth floor reads: ‘Floor 5 – These men have jobs, love the Lord, love kids, are extremely good-looking, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak’. Although tempted to make her purchase from this floor, she can’t wait to see what’s available on the sixth.

Reaching for the door-handle to enter the floor area, she notices the sign outside. ‘Floor 6 – You are visitor number 4,634,289 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists simply to prove that women are impossible to please’.
