Wednesday Fun - Nine Words Women Use

When I first read this, I thought, no way. We women don't really mean that. Then I read it again and laughed out loud, since most of the time it's exactly what is meant.

Remember it's just a funny, so read and enjoy. If you're one of the few women who don't use these words for these meanings...You are truly amazing. :D


(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 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. 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" in this case, for that will bring on a "whatever").

(8) Whatever: Is a women's way of saying screw you!

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has asked 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.

Happy Wednesday!

Great list. I have used many of those. :)

Jill James said...

Shhhh, Vicki, You are not supposed to spill all our secrets. LOL

those are so true. I use them all.

Malicious Intent said...

Yeah, never reveal the "code." However, even if you didn't...they wouldn't get it. Whatever!

Malicious Intent said...

I mean to say "Even if you did...not didn't" It is way to early to attempt typing anything that remotely makes senses. Sighhhhhh

Vicki said...

Bill, You're welcome, anytime we can help a man understand...:D

Hey Crystalfg - I use them too. A lot.

jill - It's just not that easy, they still won't get it. Well, maybe Bill ;)

MI - So right!

WOW I think I used all of them in the three days i have been sick. How is they can mess up when you are sleeping 18 hours a day b/c of illness? Seriously (that's another one that means you are stupid why did you do that? No one gets it?)
Anyway have a great week!

TOO FUNNY Vicki. I love this and may have to steal it sometime.
Of course, it's all just for laughs. Leslie never uses these words with those meanings :-).
