Getting Along Before She Got Along
It has been a long time since I have had to negotiate living arrangements with a woman. I found the items below amusing. I also recognized them from my past.
Two things you should know about me.
1. I am passive-aggressive .
2. The more people demand something of me, the less I do it when asked.
Those are probably just one thing.
The second thing might be. I hate conflict. It is usually for this reason I am motivated to meet a demand.
Nine Dangerous Words Women Use
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 in Nothing usually end in Fine.
This is a dare, not permission. Don't do it!!
This is not quite 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.)
This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman 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.
Don't read anything into this. Do not question it. Do not faint. Just say, "You're welcome." Sometimes that works.
Meaning screw you! Don't worry about it;
"I got It."
This is something 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.
I wish I had been better at reading the verbal cues!
