I would like to understand women

I was taking my morning stroll on the beach when I noticed something shiney in the sand. Curious I went to investigate and dug it out of the sand. It was a very ornate gold container and as I was brushing the sand off, naturally, smoke starts spewing from the opening and a Genie appears. The Genie says, “You get one wish.” To which I replied, “I thought I got three?”
“That’s just a myth, now don’t push your luck and make your one wish.” He said.

I thought about it for a moment, looking out over the ocean and it came to me. With a grin I told the Genie, “I wish for a toll bridge from here to Hawaii and I want to collect all the tolls!”

The Genie frowned and said, “That is a tremendous amount of work! That is even harder than when I had to build all those pyramids. Can’t you think of something else?”

I thought for a little while, and being influenced by some recent troubles with my wife I said, “I want to understand women!”

To which the Genie responded, “Do you want two lanes or four?”
