The Husband Store

The store that sells husbands has just 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 the store ONLY ONCE! There are six
floors and the attributes of the men increase as the
shopper ascends the flights. There is, however, a
catch... you may choose any man from a particular
floor, or you may choose to go up one more floor, but
you cannot go back down except to exit the building!
Happy Shopping!!!!

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 and love the Lord.

The second floor sign reads:

Floor 2: These men have jobs, love the Lord, and like

The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3: These men have jobs, love the Lord, love
kids and are extremely good looking.

"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going. She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads:

Floor 4: These men have jobs, love the Lord, love
kids, are drop-dead good looking and help
with the housework.

"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!" Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads:

Floor 5: These men have jobs, love the Lord, love
kids, are drop-dead gorgeous, help with the
housework, and have a strong romantic streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the sign

Floor 6: You are visitor 4,363,012 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. Watch your step as you exit the building, and have a nice day!
