A bit of fun for both genders!

We like to poke some fun at both genders at WealthDesign. Here’s a chance for the men! We are all for gender equality at WealthDesign. Here are a few quips that we all found funny in the office today.

  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: Yes, 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 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: She’s thinking ‘I don’t have the perfect wording right now.  You don’t get it. I’ll think of another way to get what I want.’
  9. Don’t worry about it, I’ve 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.)
