Tough Interview Questions

Job review company Glassdoor have compiled a list of the toughest interview questions by country. Here are the toughest from the UK for 20...

Nine Words Women Use

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 football before helping around the house.

3. Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

4. A 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 quickly to No 9 for the meaning of nothing.)

5. 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.

6. Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot', which is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' - that will bring on No. 7).

7. Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying, "F-- YOU!"

8. Don't worry about it, I 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 No. 4.

9. 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".

Send this link to the men you know, to warn them about arguments they can avoid if they remember the terminology.

Send this link to all the women you know to give them a good laugh, because we know it's true!

(Thanks to James for sending me this.)

  12. what all the pretense here? some women are like this and some are not. This doesn't make the women who are better than those who are not and vice versa. Everyone has differing ways of communicating. There's nothing wrong with that. So its odd to hate someone simply because that person communicates differently from you.

    I.J., communication implies that you are using a language that both parties understand. These statements are used mainly to misdirect or cloud the truth. Anyone who is proud of being like this should really look at them selves in the mirror and ask why they just can't say what they want instead of being cryptic about it. And women wonder why men misunderstand them so much...

    I find myself...yes occasionally using this type of "word play", but the men that are leaving the snappy comments have to realize that women say these things sometimes because they know their husband's way of communication. If the husband is not the communicative type, why bother trying to talk in the first place? Why is it always the women blamed for this problem? My husband NEVER communicates with me the way I'd like, but that is his way. He communicates to me in his own way, that I've learned. I am ok with it. He knows that when I make remarks similar to these, that when I am ready I will come to him to discuss the problem. Men are just as problematic in communication issues as women. We all have flaws, no perfection in humans. Where is the understanding, acceptance of differences, the love for one another?

    I'm so like this and so are most women. It's not that hard of a code to crack actually. Just watch a woman's body language when she does it. It's not that women are trying to fuck with your head or something when they do this.

    My theory is women have developed this code b/c men have told them they are crazy, too emotional, talk too much, and express their feelings too much.

    If women realised that they know absolutely nothing about men - to the same extent that men accept the fact they know nothing about women - there would be a lot fewer inter-gender arguments, wife beating and domestic violence.

    Unfortunately women are a LOT more verbally vicious than men and do not understand that when a man walks away he is admitting defeat by not resorting to physical violence, NOT asking for some stupid bitchy insult about something he did ten years ago to be shouted at his back. It virtually guarantees violence because it is a MASSIVE effort for a guy to shut up and walk away, admitting he lost.

    a little note. The 'nothing' one is a little off. It doesn't lead to an argument a lot of times. It just means that she's upset about something. That something is on her mind thats either A. The obvious, she is annoyed at you and is debating whether to tell you or not or B. She's upset about something unrelated to you and just genuinely doesn't want to bug you with her problems for once. However, she does want you to want to hear her problem. Which is why either way, you should ask whats wrong. ^^; Good luck men.

    The problem is that men and women are wired completely different, and yes, it effects communication. Women aren't crazy - they're hormonal and to the same regard men aren't pigs their hormonal. The difference is simply which hormone.

    It's true though that this is very typical verbiage used by women, but what everyone needs to see is that it's nature, genetic; whatever you want to call it. Look at kids by age 12 almost all are exhibiting typical male or female traits.

    Now, to everyone who bitches about their relationship: Vote with your damn feet!

    If you don't like the way she communicates with you then fix it. If it can't be fixed LEAVE!

    Oh, to the guys who wrote about how this stems physical violence. Learn to control yourself. I feel whole heartedly that if a women decides to attack a man that she had better plan on getting it back and not scream abuse the second he does to her what she so freely did to him, but to get abusive without her first being violent with you indicates a huge lack of self control and should be treated.

    We still have to share the earth and since most of us are straight we should attempt to understand the other sex better.

  54. I just wanted to add that this is NOT under any circumstances "communication" when a woman (or man) uses any of these phrases. You can call it a mis-communicaton maybe, but i would call it mis-direction. If you engage in the use of any of these terms rather then talking through your problems you are dooming yourself to a bad relationship. If you are with someone who you cant let yourself communicate properly with dont kid yourself, you arent with the right person. move on. peace.

    I'm frightenend by the number of women who think it's perfectly alright to communicate this way, and giggle because it's "cute". Unless they're married to the perfect wimp, their relationships are in jeopardy.

    Just to keep the playing field level, guys have their own set of communication errors which are just as threatening to a solid relationship.

    Try open, honest communication instead: both parties. Watch your relationship move to the next level of intimacy and strength.

    Really people? Come on...

    I do this to my husband sometimes and it is not meant as mis-direction or something hateful. It's more about not wanting to tell him how I feel about the same thing over and over.

    And I think any man that has been with the same woman for more than a couple years already knows exactly what she means when she sighs and when she says 'fine'.
    I know my husband does. Because these ways of expression don't define our whole relationship. We still talk about how we feel and how we can work to make our marriage even better.

    We just don't do that every day. Sometimes you're just to tired to argue over the laundry or how much tv he watches. Why say everything you've already said before, when you can get the same message through with a sigh?

    Just my 2 cents. And I'm sure that others will now criticize my relationship and how we make things work in my house ;)

    You know, relationships are supposed to be give and take. Maybe the men aren't screwing up, just doing it differently than you would. And just because everything isn't getting done exactly on your schedule doesn't mean it's not getting done. And most men try to say what they mean, and aren't always in tune to 'body language' and that's the way they expect people to communicate with them. It seems what we have here is a case of miscommunication.

    Or maybe you're single because you're such a dysfunctional human being, with such a delusional superiority complex, that no normal, caring, socially well-adjusted man could ever relate to you, or even tolerate your presence. But hey, just keep telling yourself it's by choice. You may die alone, but it's only because no one else could ever reach your level of perfection right?

    tl;dr: Stay that way.

    See, this scares me a little bit that someone thought this was lighthearted. I personally think it's poor taste for a public website, maybe for personal banter with your friends that can see past the fact that this stuff is bullshit. It's along the same lines as making a list of "Why all Indians in America work at convenience stores" and adding things like "Where else are they going to rip you off?" While it's true that some people do, and i've had it happen before, that DOESN'T make in universal, much less ANYTHING to be proud of.

    First off, after reflecting on this I realized how lucky I am to have a woman in my life that actually communicates. It takes effort on a guy's part to actually do so, but you skip the landmine tango that f*ed communication is.

    I'm tired of the BS logic that makes women think stuff like this is ok. Just because we can get thrown in prison for chucking you across the room after you do shit like this to us guys doesn't mean that we don't deal with the same amount of emotional and mental bullsh*t by not being able to trust the people that are supposed to be closest to us.

    DO NOT come crying to your friends if someone breaks up with you because you talk to him like he's a f*cking dog that can't understand what you're saying. You'd be surprised. Furthermore, don't think that we aren't capable of understanding your lack of a language: I can understand it, and i know alot of men that can. But it's about RESPECT. If you want it, give it. If you want something to be understood, make sure it's in a way that make sense to them.

    And i'm still pissed off at that woman that said that if females said everything that was on thier minds we "wouldn't be able to handle it". That's the definition of CARING. If a guy actually gives a shit about you, he wants to know how your mind works and what you're thinking about. Don't try and beat around the bush, speak english to express your thoughts, guys chill out and listen if she's actually talking to you, and WOMEN STOP TRYING TO THINK WE'RE OXEN, OR WE'LL DO WHAT OXEN DO: SH*T ON YOUR PARADE, MESS UP YOUR HOUSE, GET PISSED OFF, AND PROBABLY HURT SOMETHING.

    This is just bad communication. Perhaps the women who sympathize with this list should work on their interpersonal skills.

    It's not a psych thesis on communicating between the sexes... it's a joke. I think the people who are taking this a little too seriously and getting their panties in a twist are the ones with the real problems.

  101. I thought this was amusing, because in my last relationship, I found myself using some similar expressions. It wasn't out of a desire to be mysterious or confusing, but because the relationship wasn't very good, and it was simply easier to say something like these to end an argument/discussion that was going nowhere and just move on. Trying to communicate had failed enough times that I had stopped bothering, and I ended up sounding a lot like some of these words and "meanings." I can relate and see the humor here.

  102. why are women so proud of this list.. you realize that when you say these things it is when men hate you the most..

  104. I wouldn't call the difference in female communication a "game". Most of these become our means of communicating after we have tried to express a point repeatedly. Not that it's men's fault that they don't understand. We just communicate differently.

  105. So that's the way they say F you? I generally hear the traditional. :) Nice post.

  106. This is stereotyping for comedy. It is meant to, and is, funny. Pointing out patterns in humans is funny, because we like to think of ourselves as fluid, and not robotic.

    Stereotypes are not bad. Prejudice is. So stop being prejudice, and laugh, gosh darn it.

  107. Come on, HUMOR? When has "I'm fine" ever been a good thing to hear, ever? It's funny. Learn to laugh. Otherwise, how are you going to get past the inevitable communication issues, whatever they are?

  109. to the women saying "I wish my man communicated at all!"
    It's not easy for us, okay? especially myself.
    It's not a choice, I find that when someone wants me to explain what I'm feeling it is just BLANK and I don't know.

    But these words are deliberately misleading.
    Women can pick up on body language 10 times better than Men can, so we rely on the meaning of the words.

    If you use these to communicate... grow up.

  110. ...You guys are ridiculous for actually arguing over this. It's funny. Take it at face value and relax a little. It'll be a favor for the rest of us.

  111. I cant believe that there are so many people in the world who have such strong feelings about someone posting something on the internet. Anonymous... the one who said, "Must be horrible to be married to you sanctimonious harpies, then. I prefer a woman who doesn't play BS games and communicates with me like I'm a human." We would probably talk to men like humans if so many of them weren't so dense as this other Anonymous charachter who said "That's why women are only good as flesh sheaths for a man's love stick. They objectify themselves by being worthless." You sir, need to get a grip or else have fun playing with yourself for the rest of your life.

  112. Communication is, like the perception it is based on, a depth unknown. Real communication doen't happen with words a lot because the perception of what eventually gets a point across can be mistaken to the very core. What gets a point across to me might not work for you and vice versa. That said, this was for fun, and people who don't find it so can go read things they find fun. To complain about this or assume things from it is like going to someone else's house, sniffing their toilet, and complaining the place stinks. If it wasn't fun for you, go find a site that is and stop bitching. There are so many other sites.....

  116. All of you who claim that this shows communication problems...get off the commenting and go COMMUNICATE with your wife. Really? I think this is downright hysterical. My college actually sold a T-Shirt with this list on it for the Vagina Monologues. It is supposed to be FUNNY. All of you men who think women are incapable of real conversation, or BS or whatever the hell else you said (I got angry reading about halfway down...), really? you think men are all that great? If our men can't figure out when we are angry...they deserve everything they get as a result of this list. We aren't that hard to figure out when we are pissed. At least I'm not....

  122. If I may, I'd like to add the following: When a woman says, "We need to talk", she really means, "You need to STFU and listen to what I have to say!"

    ReplyDelete
  123. Actually, "We need to talk" usually means - time to say "Goodbye".

  126. I don't think we want to trap you, but communication is a two-way street and I think some women give up too early and retreat into this kind of communication. That said, it's still only a joke.

  128. Man...there's a lotta ANGRY people checking out this blog.

    Well, your list is amusing. Women who use those words on your list are amusing as well. I've met a few of them and as far as I know, they are either still looking for a mate or have bedded down with some whipping boy.

    Me? Ha! I live in Southeast Asia where an Asian woman is a REAL woman and respects her man.

  131. This is quite common even between 2 female friends. Although I'm a woman, I still dont get why my fellow women do that. This is what gets the men bored. Why would you want them to connect the dots all the time. Even when my female friends do it to me, its that irritating and they end up saying I'm insensitive at times but let's face facts... this is cliche; there is more to life than being that only person whose emotions and actions have to be understood and justified
