I got this from Karens Blog she really is a great blogging mother, you should go visit. I now understand Tracy a lot better............thanks Karen
and their meanings.
I thought I would offer a post for the "Guys Stuff" Series--mostly for the guys who are either married or around a special someone a LOT! Sometimes we need to help each other out a little. So take heed men, when your woman uses any of these words below, beware that you listen closely for the tone of voice, and think hard about how you've been operating around the home. It will do you well, and could increase your life expectancy.
When you hear words like:
This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.
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.
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.
This is a dare, not permission. Do not Do It! (Teenagers like to use this also, when they are mad about a punishment. It's meant to make the parent feel like they are getting nowhere and nowhere fast).
This is actually as good as the spoken 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 to the list above for the meaning of nothing.)
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.
When a woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome.
Is a women's way of saying $%#@ YOU!
"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?" and the woman will answer "Nothing!"
Hope this helped!
