(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.

  1. Joy says:

    Guilty as charged!!! I’ve said every one of these things and meant them JUST this way.

  2. SKL says:

    Wow, it’s universal.

    I used to get into so much trouble for my “whatever.” What I really meant was, it’s not important enough to me to argue any more, let’s move on. Really. But what people heard was “F-U.” My ex-boss almost threw something at my “whatever” a couple of times, before I realized how offensive I was being. Now that I’ve been educated, I use “whatever” in the proper way, as described above.

  3. K. Trainor says:

    This had to have been written by a woman. Please tell me men haven’t figured us out to this extent.

  4. Joy says:

    I’m sure it was Kelly. Men haven’t a clue!!!

  5. Just a Mom says:

    I use the Whatever phrase all the time. It applys to the kids too!

  6. nikki says:

    LMAO!!! I’m so guilty of saying all these and meaning what they say they mean! I say “Whatever” very often and “don’t worry about it, I got it” way too often! You’d think they’d get the hint but then I realize “they are men and just aren’t wired right”…sorry Mssc and DM, you’re the exceptions! 😉

  7. Sue says:

    These are right on the money! I have said some of those things and meant exactly those meanings. It’s amazing that men and women are wired so differently yet we can’t exist without each other.

  8. G-Ma says:

    I never say those things. No, not me. I know NOTHING about those words…

  9. Joy says:

    LOL G-Ma!!! I think tho does protest to much!!!

  10. Elena says:

    I almost always say what I mean, but my husband keeps trying to second guess me. If he thinks I look upset and asks me what’s wrong, but I’m genuinely okay and I say, “Nothing” he never believes me. It’s kind of frustrating. I think all these years of worrying have permanently wrinkled my face in such a way that I always look stressed to the extreme. You’d think he would have figured that out by now! 🙂

  11. SanityFound says:

    TFF because I mean us women understand these words right… I don’t say 5 minutes mind but I do say “now now” or “just now” and that drives non south africans wild… parantly everyone thinks that means NOW but in our language it means “in a moment” or “soon”… it can be 5 minutes can be 5 hours or even 5 months… ah the South African way *grins big*

  12. Another thumbs up for a job well done. These words are totally “calming” and will stop the “heat” – in case. lol
