Five things women say to men (and vice versa) that drives them crazy


So after yesterday's post about conversational miscues- there was a lot of commenting about things the opposite sex says that drive the other crazy. I've listed the top five of each. Enjoy...

Five things women say that men can't stand:
1. "Nothing" - As in the answer to, "What's wrong?"
2. "It's fine" - When it's clearly not fine.
3. "Whatever" - It's a cop-out. You know it, we know it. So be it.
4. "We need to talk" - Strikes fear in the hearts of men globally.
5. Nothing at all - As in, we say nothing. That's when they know something is really, really wrong.
Five things men say that women can't stand:
1. "Let me call you back" - Thanks. Now we know we'll be hearing from you on 33rd of Neveruary.
2. "Babe, we cool." - So you're just using me for cocoa and I'll never meet your mother.
3. "She's just a friend." - Really tho?
4. "Did you say something?" - Weren't you listening?
5. Nothing at all accompanied by a shrug. -  As in, the sanswer to "Can you go by the store? Did you take out the trash? Did you hear the last five things I said? Do you love me?" The male shrug is epic in its ability to enrage  while saying nothing at all.
BougieLand - any to add to the list?

"No, don't get up...I'll get it"  which really means, "I wanted you to do something but you didn't do it fast enough for my taste so I will do it myself.  Hmph, I was doing it myself before you came along and I'm going to be doing it by myself after you gone...I'm not gone cry...I'm not gone cry"

Bwahahaha!!!

Men say to women:
What's wrong? = Are you mad about something I did that I didn't even think you knew about?
You want me to do it now? (Yes now because in 5 mins you will have forgotten all about it!)
Was it good?

Women say to men:
Honey can you....? (unless this is followed by a sexual favor)
Do you really love me?
Does this make me look fat?

thinklikeRiley said...

Ladies - stop asking us if you look fat in something. We probably didn't think so until you asked.

Now this is funny!

Women say to men
Why can't you (fill in blank) - Referencing something that an ex, father or brother did that she wants the current to do

Men say to women
You know you  my boo - As in I like you even though I am not trying to date you

William Martin said...

"I'll be ready in five minutes" - why do women say that when they know they mean thirty?

CaliGirlED said...

LOL!!!

Hey Doc! How's it going in the medical world?

tishatweets said...

Funny!

In a former life, a man I'd be romantically involved with would say something and I'd say "so, what you're saying is..." and get that deadpan face. They'd be all "I'm not one of your clients." LOL. I thought I was checking for understanding, clarity et. al. (okay I DO do that at work, too, but isn't that a good thing?) but they'd feel like I just wasn't listening. Anyway, I've learned ways around that but it's funny that we can say one thing and it's taken a different way.

Ummumm (said in the cadence of I don't know)  is not a word, let alone an answer. It seems to be code for, "Not only do I not know, I'm not even trying to think about it."

Brneyed1 said...

I do that to my SO and he HATES it!!!

Like you, I'm checking for clarity and understanding.  He says I'm twisting his words around.

Brneyed1 said...

This one gets me and always will:

"Why do you ask?" 

Sounds like you're buying time to think up an excuse for whatever it is I just asked you about.  So now I'm side eyeing everything you're about to say.

JojoRaze said...

As a woman, this question bothers me to no end.  When it comes to clothes, if you have to ask if it makes you look fat, you probably don't look right in it.  Why ask your SO to critically evaluate you about your body image and possibly insult you?? Argh

When men say "But I thought we were just friends" :-{

SpkTruth2Pwr said...

Haha ohhh the wonders of communication between women and men!

rozb said...

When either men or women look at you after you got dressed and say "Huh. So you gonna wear that. Alrighty then."

Or after somebody says something insulting or crazy and says "I'm just sayin'..."

bashowell said...

*cackles at was it good*

Brenda Kay said...

Men who continually use the very annoying phrase, "You know what I'm sayin?" Yes Ninja, I know exactly what you're saying, and I really wish you would just shut up already!

Anonymous said...

I hate it when your SO ask you, "do you think she's prettier than me?" just because you caught me Lookin lol

Anonymous said...

Or after your girl cuts her hair and y'all go out somewhere and there's some chick with hair the length your girls used to be and she ask you " do you wish my hair was that length?" of course I wish you hair was that length!!!!!!!

*Giggles* okay no *HOLLERS* 

invectiva said...

My (adopted) parents were... contentious. Needlessly argumentative and negative about the pettiest things. When my dad wanted to "win" a fight, he would say to my mom, in this simpering voice, "Now, honey. You know how you get."  Haven't heard it in 30 years, but it *still* makes me incandescent with rage. #NoCountryForDeliberatelyCondescending
