    Got this from my mother and wanted to share [​IMG]


    (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.

    * Send this to the men you know, to warn them about arguments they can avoid if they remember the terminology.

    * Send this to all the women you know to give them a good laugh, cause they know it's true!!!

    I say 1, 3, 6 and 9 are my most used....and said either very quietly with a little snarkiness (hmm...I think thats a word [​IMG]) or... verrrryyyyyy drawn out and to the point.

    I learned to understand what each and every one of these mean, but through significant trial and error.

    I've learned to be observant.

    I get accused of 'thinking' too loudly [​IMG] And if I do the loud sigh thing... well, he knows what it means and calls me on it [​IMG]

    i think i use 9 the most. i dont know if he forgets on purpose, or he really is that absent, but that usually turns into a 6.

    I've learned that I can always have the last words in any argument.

    I just say, "Yes dear"
