Words women use (and how men should react to them)

WORDS WOMEN USE (thanks Andrea)

******************************


FINE
This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

FIVE MINUTES
If she is getting dressed, this is half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given 5 more minutes to watch the game
before helping around the house.

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"

GO AHEAD
This is a dare, not permission. Don't do it.

LOUD SIGH
This is not 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 over "Nothing".

THAT'S OKAY
This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that 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. Just say you're welcome.

You forgot
"Is there anything I can get you while I'm out?"
Which is a backhanded way of noting that you are not actually accompanying her on a likely arduous and protracted trip during which she could probably use your assistance in carrying something.
It is a trick! Do not ask her to get anything - especially beer or Doritos. She will dutifully get them for you and hold that fact over your head the next time you pop out for a newspaper and end up having to pick up 5 pairs of pantyhose at three different shops.
