[OT] Men are chickens**t.

If you walk into (any) Exclusive Books book store and go to the counter you will be confronted by a whole bunch of gifts.

There are bookmarks, pens, little torches etc. And there are little gift-books. Some are small, some are sentimental, some are silly but they are all intended to be gifts.

So, on the counter at the EB in Cresta shopping centre are two boxes that hold books. One is called "Don'ts For Husbands" with a blue cover and one is called "Don'ts For Wives" with a pink cover.

Now remember, these are by the gift books, not on the shelves where you'd go to browse and buy a book for yourself. So, the intention of these books is for a husband to buy for his wife and vice-versa.

All the "Don't For Husbands" were snapped up by wives and given. The "Don'ts For Wives" were still on the shelf. The one copy that was purchased was apparently buried with the husband the next day.

You've got to love married bliss.

(This whole article is true - except for the bit about the one copy of "Don'ts For Wives" missing.)

(The pic above is not such great quality but take my word for it - there are no copies in the left box and the box on the right is almost full.)
