Nine Words Women Use….

This is a recap of an email I received with no author listed, but I imagine written by a man…… It made me chuckle, but there are certainly some truths to it:

  • FINE: This is a 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 means a half an hour. (But I have to admit.. 5 minutes to me is exactly that).  Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given fie 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 SIGN: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men.  A loud sign means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about noting. 9Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing).
  • THAT’S OKAY:  This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman 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 thinking 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”)
  • WHATEVER: Is a woman’s way of saying —-YOU!!!!!
  • DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT, I’LL DO IT: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has gold a man to do several times, but is now doing herself.  This will later result in a man asking, “What’s wrong?”  For the woman’s response refer to #3.

That is it… gotta tell you, I do admit to some of the above…  oh well, have to keep Loren on his toes….

Smile, let’s sit down and have a cup of something…. I know some of you don’t drink coffee… so go get something and sit down, smile and breathe for a bit….

  1. I will own the “fine, just fine” statement and I think I have been guilty of at least one or two (hundred? thousand?) loud sighs. Good one to start the week. Go ahead….do the nine words men use tomorrow.
