moms know best

be's mom sent me a funny email tonight called 'nine words women use.'  and i'm loling because this collection of words and reactions couldn't be more true.  so this post really is for our male readers.  read carefully, take notes, and commit to memory.  this is good stuff that will keep you out of trouble.

1. "fine"
[definition] this is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

2. "five minutes"
[definition] 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"
[definition] 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"
[definition] this is a dare, not permission. don't do it!

5. a loud sigh
[definition] this isn't 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 ok"
[definition] this is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. "that's ok" means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

7. "thanks"
[definition] 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"
[definition] this is a woman's way of saying "forget it", i don’t have anymore time to waste on you.

9. "don't worry about it, i got it"
[definition] 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.
all so true, so true.
