My father forwarded this to me last week (not sure if there was hidden meaning in that), but it cracked me up because a lot of it is so true.


(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 F--- 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.

True, right?


  1. Totally true! So if we give this to all the men who love us, they will be able to affectively communicate with us!

  2. Absolutely true!

    Have a good Monday.

  3. Oh, I love these. One of my favorite lines is from the movie "Congo." The line and #8 go hand and hand. After seeing that movie several times, my DH knows what I mean when I say "whatever." LOL

    If you've ever seen the movie, it's where they are getting off the plane in the Congo. If you haven't seen the movie, it's a nice flick to view.

  4. I've been known to use some of these once in a while, too, especially #1 and #3. LOL!

    I read Congo years ago, but haven't seen the movie--will put it in the Netflix queue.
