(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(How come my kids use this on me ?!!?)

(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 nothing.)

(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 F--YOU!

(Woah! MY kids use this on me too!!)

(9) Don't worry about it, I'll do 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.

So men, now you know the meaning of these words - please know when to keep really quiet so that a storm will not ensue. This should also help you to know when you need to make a visit to the *Bling* supplier to get back into her good books.

And Ladies - we now know what we really mean. Heh! Heh! *wink*

I'm sure I read that before somewhere, but reading it over again, still made me chuckle. The "big sigh"... I use that a lot.

Ok that's the funny, familiar feelings! It seems like you mellow when you grow older. You are a little kinder with words. You are less sharp. Don't you agree?

one word clinic nurses are taught from the 1st day : SOON.

that's the answer to each patient who wants to know when he/she can see the doctor.

it can mean several things:
1) there are still 10 patients ahead of you (believe me, is the best scenario);

2) there are still 10 patients ahead, but the doctor still has to do ward rounds 1st;

3) there are still 10 patients ahead, but the doctor still has do ward rounds 1st, AT ANOTHER HOSPITAL across town.

4) last but by no means least, the doctor is still having breakfast at home but will have to do a couple of procedures at yet another hospital, before #3 above.

(no lah, this is just a figment of my imagination)

Yes, 5 out of 9 of these constantly are at the tip of my tongue. AND
Youngsters' favourite word has to be: LATER

Reason No.4 holds true when the doctor is in his 50s. He is still having a game of tennis/morning swim and won't be in till 10.30am.

ah, these are the doctors who've already "made it" & now are relaxing a little.
