Nine (9) Words Women Use

Okay you people.  Read up!  And pay attention!!

 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. 

8.) Whatever: Is a women’s way of saying ____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.

  1. Oh! This is so good~
    Our 16 year old son was in the room and I read the list aloud to him….he definitely agrees…..


  2. No #5 is my favoriteand I do it quite frequently. For me it means I’ve heard it so many times that ther is nothing else for me to do but sigh. After 50 years of life together its better than any remark.

  3. A few vital expressions were missed!

    “Truly”! An all-purpose interjective. You are either indicating surprise, dismay, incredulity, or complete disbelief, depending on the body language and facial expression. This one is usually completely opaque to the masculine eye.

    “THAT is NOT done”! Usually said in a low and hissing tone. This heralds the lobbing of social WMDs at the offender (always female, and always a serial felon on the social scene).

    “Indeed”? Said to your man after hearing his explanation for his lateness. He usually does realise the jig is up after hearing this one. Indicates mild to middling irritation. If he truly gets to you, “Indeed”? becomes “Indeed”! (usually allied with Piercing Glare #1, a favourite of all of us over forty)

    “Ah-huh…” This is feminine shorthand for “wrap it up now, mister, I do NOT believe a word of it”!

    “Is that so”? (in the New York recension: “Izzat so”?) Commonly heard in girl chats over tea, gossip on the ladies’ side at the Russian bath house, or idle chatter at the grocers’. “Tell me more… do not omit any of the juicy and gory detail, dear…” A completely feminine idiom used only in all-female venues.

    We DO speak a different language than the fellows do…


  4. I have to admit that I am very guilty of number 9. I have found that I can do things more quickly and efficiently if I just do them myself, but I still end up trying to make my poor hubby feel guilty. I should work on that…
