Val ~ one thing my husband and I try to do with each other is first ask nicely and make sure to point out the task doesnít have to be done this minute. Then we thank each other when we help each other out. It has really made a difference and kept the arguments to a minimum. I just know not to ask for anything during a football game or race. Being a woman and observant, I just know when he needs help and offer it without being asked. (Yep, I just inserted a little man bashing there, sry guys.)


Becadcox ~ great additions to the list. Friend, pfft, who needs THAT kind of friend. And why is it men age so well and we have to goop on all those moisturizers to keep looking young?

ďI love your dressĒ, you look like crap but the dress is great.

Words Women Use:
"Big Boned" We all know what that one means.

"My visiting friend" Why do we refer to it as a FRIEND when really we want it to go the hell away?

"Distinguished" You're an old guy, but you're still hot.

"Size 6" Size 8, but lying about it.

"I love your dress!" Bitch, that dress looks really good on you and now nobody is noticing MY dress.

"She's cute" Stop looking at her before I slap you.

"Persistence:
If something didnít turn out just right, I moved around it and adapted. I didnít let one step back stop me from moving forward."

I am one of the worst females to forget to show appreciation. I used to expect so much from my husband, and he never wanted to help out. It is because I was a nag. I can still be a royal pain in the ass. But I quit asking him to help out. I just quit. I figured I'd rather do everything myself than listen to him gripe about it. And you know what? After 29 years, I have the most helpful husband you've ever seen. He does whatever he can to help me out, and he will even ask what I need done. Now, sometimes, I wish he wouldn't be quite so helpful, but I'm not gonna complain!!!

So while I pick on you guys, I think that as a female, I can show more appreciation that I do.

OK those favors can be irritating, especially if your watching a great game. Now my wife asked me to do some things around the house last night while she watched "Top Model" (No comment) I had no problem with doing that because the Rockies had pretty much had their heads kicked in by then. Still I didn't manage to do them all and I heard about it. And you wonder why us guys don't say "How hi" when you say jump.

Adding to the original: I think that women often use the phrase "Sweetie, could you...?"

This usually means that we know you can, and we know you don't want to, but you're going to do it anyway because you don't want to hear us say "sigh" followed by "nothing."

Alternates to this phrase are:
"Honey, are you busy?"
"Say, Baby...?"
"Babe, could you do me a favor?"
...and more.

"Persistence:
If something didnít turn out just right, I moved around it and adapted. I didnít let one step back stop me from moving forward."

FINE
This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

FIVE MINUTES
If she is getting dressed, this is half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given 5 more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

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"

GO AHEAD
This is a dare, not permission. Don't do it.

LOUD SIGH
This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she think's you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing"

THAT'S OKAY
This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

THANKS
A woman is thanking you. Do not question it or faint. Just say you're welcome.

WHATEVER
It's a woman's way of saying *!#@ YOU!

Quit stuffing your face and face your stuff.
Be yourself, everyone else is taken.
I think therefore I am dangerous.
Don't make excuses, make changes.
