Father’s Day Thought: Men Are Happier People

Father's Day Fun - Dollar Photo Happy coupleWith this being Father’s Day, I thought I’d share something a bit light-hearted in celebration. This thought in particular talks about men being happier people. (In some instances, maybe yes, and maybe no, but it’s an interesting thought.) Getting mushy concerning Father’s Day can be nice, but laughing over matters such as these seems like a better option.

Celebrating Father’s Day

Below is something that was sent to us a while ago. I don’t know the author. But whoever it was, they seem to know men pretty well! I can tell you that the few men I shared it with (my husband being one of them) they thought it was pretty spot on.

See if you agree with what’s being said here: 

Men Are Just Happier People

Your last name stays put.

The garage is all yours.

Wedding plans take care of themselves.

Chocolate is just another snack.

You can never be pregnant.

You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park.

And 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 vacation 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 pocketknife.

And 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 happier.


To all you happy men,
and to all you men who are fathers:


And to my sweetheart, Steve Wright,
who I’ve been married to for over 45 years
—a man who is an EXCELLENT husband
and father to our two grown sons,
David and John,
and EXCELLENT father in law to our two lovely daughters-in-love,
Kristina and Monique (married to our two grown sons),
and a most EXCELLENT Papa to our two grandchildren,
Nadya and T.J.:


I love you with all of my heart.
And I hope this is a wonderful day for you…
…Please know that I’ll do my best to make sure it is
