Even God Can't Help Men

A trucker was traveling through the beautiful rolling hills of West Virginia when suddenly the sky clouded above his head. In a booming voice, the Lord said, "Because you have tried to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish."

The trucker pulled over and said, "I've been all over this great country of ours. Traveled the interstates from coast to coast. I've seen the beautiful Atlantic coast and have been to the beaches of the sunny Pacific coast. I've been from the deltas of the south to the mountains of the Northwest. I've even drivin to the last frontier, Alaska. In addition to every one of our beautiful states, I've been through almost every Province and Territory of Canada, enjoying the country of our friendly northern neighbors. But what I'd really like, my one wish, would be a bridge to Hawaii so I can travel there anytime I want."

The Lord said, "Your request is materialistic. Think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking; the supports required to reach the bottom of the Pacific and the concrete and steel it would take! I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more time and think of something that could possibly help mankind."

The trucker thought about it for a long time.

Finally he said, "Lord, I wish that I, and all men, could understand our wives. I want to know how she feels inside, what she's thinking, why she cries, what she means when she says nothing is wrong. I want to know how I can make a woman truly happy."

The Lord replied, "You want two lanes on that bridge or four?"
