Nine words we women use

Hey guys...ever wondered what us women are really saying to you? Here's the real truth. And gals...I you will find yourself just nodding along in agreement. I know I did!

"Fine" This is the word women use to end an argument when they know they are right and men just need to stop talking.  

"Five Minutes" If a woman is getting dressed, this means she'll be ready in half an hour.  Five minutes is only five minutes if you just been given five more minutes to watch the game before you need to help around the house. 

"Nothing"  This is the reply in the calm before the storm when you ask 'what's wrong?' .  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 giving you permission. You definitely shouldn't do it.

"Loud Sigh" This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood.  A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you. 

"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 thanking you, do not question it, or faint in surprise.  Just say you're welcome.  This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - which is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all.  DO NOT say 'you're welcome' -- that will just bring on a 'fine' 

"Whatever" A woman's way of saying I'm tired of listening, I'll do what I want anyway!   

"Don't worry about it, I've got it"  Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told you to do several times, but has given up and is now doing herself.  This will later result in you asking, 'What's wrong?'  To which you'll get a 'nothing'

So guys, now you can't say you haven't been warned!

p.s. Whilst this post is a little tongue-in-cheek, and I like to hope that hubby and I communicate with each other better than this on most days, there are definitely still times I can remember when I have come out with some of these lines. None of which are very productive in all honesty. If nothing else, I hope this post is a good reminder that both guys and gals need to take equal responsibility for getting good communication and harmony in our homes.

Happy Wednesday to you!

Tee hee, I agree with most - but, (gah!), I do say, 'Thanks a lot' - and I DO mean it entirely! Perhaps it's my over the top Englishness, using my manners to the point of ridiculous!
