NINE WORDS WOMEN USE


(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' .. That will bring on a 'whatever').

(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying "I don't think so"!

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to # 3.

* Send this to the men you know, to warn them about arguments they can avoid if they remember the terminology.

* Send this to all the women you know to give them a good laugh, cause they know it's true!!!

I totally use the "go ahead" with "whatever". As in, my husband says to me last night "So, I'm going hunting this weekend with this guy I met online" (umm?!)--when we're supposed to be buying a matress for the guest room for his brother to sleep on over Thanksgiving... To which I replied "Ok, go ahead, whatever... We'll get it later..." Ok, now I sound mean--I just want our house to look nice for Thanksgiving! I've never hosted Thanksgiving before. YIkes!

I had Steve mute the tv so I could read these to him. He shuffled ice during number 5. I calmly stopped, stared at him, and he quit. I told him he didn't want a FINE and walk off. Then I started from #1 to make sure he understood and heard me!
