How to score!

I happened to see it today and I think it is funny (Did I say true?). It goes like this,


World of romance...
In the world of romance, one single rule applies: Make the woman happy.

Do something she likes, and you get points.
Do something she dislikes and points are subtracted.
You don't get any points for doing something she expects. Sorry, that's the way the game is played.

Here is a guide to the point system:

SIMPLE DUTIES
You make the bed (+1)
You make the bed, but forget the decorative pillow (0)
You throw the bedspread over rumpled sheets (-1)

You go out to buy her what she wants (+5)
In the snow (+8)
But return with Beer (-5)

A NIGHT OUT
You take her to a movie (+2)
You take her to a movie she likes (+4)
You take her to a movie you hate (+6)
You take her to a movie you like (-2)
It's called Deathcop 3 (-3)
You lied and said it was a foreign film about orphans (-15)

YOUR PHYSIQUE
You develop a noticeable potbelly (-15)
You develop a noticeable potbelly and exercise to get rid of it (+10)
You develop a noticeable potbelly and resort to baggy jeans and baggy Hawaiian shirts (-30)
You say, "It doesn't matter, you have one too." (-8000)

ENJOY THE BIG QUESTION
She asks, "Do I look fat?" (-5) [Yes, you lose points no matter what]
You hesitate in responding (-10)
You reply, "Where?" (-35)
Any other response (-20)

COMMUNICATION [When she wants to talk about a problem]
You listen, displaying what looks like a concerned ex-pression (0)
You listen, for over 30 minutes (+50)
You listen for more than 30 minutes without looking at the TV (+500)
She realizes this is because you have fallen asleep (-1000)

i read this before (forwarded by a gleeful male friend) and i grrr-ed all the way through.

women should rally and post one for guys- although i suspect it would have just one item:
-let him watch football/cricket/any random sport while you provide endless supply of food (+10000) :)

An old joke but a good one.

Wife to husband: "What to do you like, my beautiful face or my sexy body?"

Husband thinks and sez: "i like your sense of humour".

:-)

LOL penzer, That was good one.

Hmmm,

"POOR OLD" Aadis

Well, I do agree with this. I have seen his current bank statement and I had seen him two years back. He sure is growing poor and old (both at the same time).
