Can't live without us women!

I am shamelessly stealing yet something else I read from another blogger....

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 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.
7.) Thanks : A woman is thanking you, do not question, or Faint. Just say you're welcome.
8.) Whatever : Is a women's way of saying F@!K YOU!
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.


How many of you use these statements??? I know I do.

SpongyBones said...

How many of us have had these used on us in the question! Then you women wonder why us men just walk away and remain silent ( which seems to piss ya all off more ) ... can't win for losing!

dawn said...

Great Post, I am a "fine " woman myself. All the men in my house know when I say fine it doesn't mean fine. Have a great weekend Barb

Kati said...

LOL I love these. My personal rephrasing of #9 is "Nevermind, I'll do it myself." The DH finally jumps & asks what I need when I say that, but it's generally after asking nicely 3 (or 4, or 5) times and him being oblivious. By the time I get to "Nevermind...", he better find something ELSE to help me with, WITHOUT asking! Because I'm not in a mood to ask nicely for ANYTHING after that, for a while. DD is picking up on that, too. *wry smile* Unfortunately she's also got her daddy's tendency to ignore me the first 3 (or 4, or 5) times first.

I remember a list like this, but with 12 words. Still funny, though, especially 4 and 6.

Jay said...

A guy really knows he's in trouble when a woman says "Don't worry about it honey, it's no big deal".

There is no such thing as "no big deal".

LOL

Women Rock!

The Lone Beader said...

I have been guilty of these statements in the past....

Enemy of the Republic said...

Ha Ha! Guilty as charged!

whimsicalnbrainpan said...

LMAO! That is so true!

eric313 said...

You got it, Barb. We're just can't--were would poetry come from if there was no love to know or remember?

Speaking of which, I'll send you one very soon.

And indeed, like the last commenter, I also LMAO.
take care, friend and talk to you soon!

Shrink Wrapped Scream said...

OMG, you've described me down to a T!! This is so funny, and tragiclly true..

skinnylittleblonde said...

Lol...so very true.
There's also, for me, the 'It will be OK.' which really means 'Man you have totally screwed this up, but I will fix it later.'

just me said...

Ok, is another one of those little words that are loaded with meaning at times, depending on the inflections and the context.

Great post. You men better listen up!!

Anne said...

That's funny. Why do we talk in code and then get annoyed that men don't understand us? But if we spell things out and say things in a way they understand, they accuse us of nagging. There must be a happy medium.

Chalice said...

Ahhhhhh... I love this! I swear I have used all of those. Especially "Nothing" and the "Sigh"... Wait lately I have been doing the whole "Don't worry about it, I got it"...

Wow.. I am a total woman! **snicker**

singleton said...

ahhhh, the language of love.....

LOL! It's universal!

captain corky said...

Princess Banter said...

Aaaaah... I absolutely love that list! It's so effin' true! Hahaha! However, there is that most powerful one that women use... the non-word! The painful silent treatment and the glare!!! Works like a charm. ALL THE TIME!

Gardener Greg said...

I know your advice is a little late. So go ahead doesn't mean to do it? OOPS No wonder she is mad.

CS said...

Yeah, most of them. Especially fine, nothing, and whatever. Not the time one though - I'm absurdly punctual. I've always thought men were equally guilty of time-underestimating - the project that is supposed ot take a couple of hours but lasts all day, the bizarre twilight-zoneness of football time.

notfearingchange said...

well you've summarized my conversation style nicely....I also like to cross my arms and occasionally do a slight stomp.

Wizened Wizard said...

Ah ha ha ha! #2, #5 and #9.

And I do say "thanks" and "that's okay" - but I mean it. I'm kinda direct... none of that hidden meaning stuff or hinting by this wizard...
