- “Fine” This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you just need to shut up.
- “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.
- “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. Do NOT Do It!
- “A 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 arguing with you about “Nothing.” (See # 3 for the meaning of “Nothing.”)
- “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.
- “Thanks” A woman is thanking you, do not question it. Just say You’re Welcome. (Disclaimer: This is true, unless she says “Thanks A Lot,” which is PURE sarcasm, and she is not thanking you at all. In this case, DO NOT say “You’re Welcome” that will only bring on a “Whatever” See #8).
- “Whatever” This is a women’s way of saying “Are You That Incredibly Stupid?” You have made a fatal error!
- “Don’t Worry About It, I’ve 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 the man asking “What’s Wrong?” to which the woman’s understandable response would be “Nothing” (See # 3).
Thanks for this post goes to my BFF and fellow fifty-year-old Kimisue, who does not have a blog, but does read this one, but rarely, if ever, comments – to which I say “That’s Okay”
