A Handy Guide To Translating Your Wife's Facial Expressions


What are women thinking? What are they feeling? What do they WANT FROM US!?
Nine Words Women Use

(1) Fine : This is the word women use to end an argument when they are

right and you need to shut up. This means your facts may be right but

you are still wrong.

(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


(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...Go to Hell...

(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).
