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.
    Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this is half an hour.Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given 5 more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.
    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".
    Go Ahead:This is a dare, not permission, DON'T DO IT!
    Loud Sigh:Although not actually a word, the loud sigh is 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 over "Nothing".
    That's Okay:This is one of the most dangerous statements that woman can make
    to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before
    deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.
    Thanks:This is the least used of all words in the female vocabulary. If a
    woman is thanking you. Do not question it, just say you're welcome and
    back out of the room slowly.

    Or with utensils and other household items being flung at your head at the speed of sound while you make a hasty exit out of the room, running and dodging missiles for your life...

    Ain't that the truth! How about the sideways "look"that tells a man that he's walking on dangerous ground.....

    of course i agree with it all- what woman wouldn't?

    i'm just wondering who started this independent language that woman uses and man has to learn to interpret?

    You could add the exasperated "Whatever!" Followed by the flounce out of the room. Always a winner in my book.

    Good post!!!
    Boy do I identify with the sigh.
    My wife and I are considering choice A or B. To me, either one is ok. Believe me, it is six of one, half dozen of another, and we have probably spent waaay too much time on the matter already.
    But my wife will say the magic word: WHAT-EVER.
    Now, guys.....this should create thin ice signs, rail road warnings with all the bells and flashing lights....but if you're like me (dummy) :chuckle .......I make the decision, thinking we will move on.........WRONG!!!!
    Cue......THE SIGH........

    Move over Fido...I'll be staying a while!

    Think I'll join ya.

    Which is what I meant by the "utensils flying" bit in my post. My girl could make anything fly - even things which aren't supposed to!

    And almost always I'd end up rubbing a sore spot (or two) on my noggin while wondering "What did I say?" :chuckle

    Sometimes it's not so much what we say, as how we say it......and a smart man will learn the nuances.

    My husband is just such a man. He has discovered, through much trial, error, and nights spent on the sofa, that the single word "FINE" can mean several different things.......it all depends on the tone:

    "Fine......" means I don't care enough about the subject under discussion to continue it.

    "Fine!" with an 'up' note means it really IS fine with me, and in fact I'd love to do whatever it is you have proposed.

    "Fine!" , clipped short, means "Keep talking at your own risk".

    "FINE!!" :angryfire means, of course, that at that particular moment, everything sucks, and I will cheerfully kill you if given the slightest provocation.
