There are only two ways of telling the complete truth-- anonymously and posthumously. --- Thomas Sowell (1930 - ) Reality is the leading cause of stress amongst those in touch with it. --- Jane Wagner
Words Women Use (And What They Mean) FINE This is the word we use at the end of any argument that we feel we are right about but need to shut you up. NEVER use fine to describe how a woman looks. This will cause you to have one of those arguments. FIVE MINUTES This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so it's an even trade. NOTHING This means something and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and backwards. "Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with the word "Fine". GO AHEAD (with raised eyebrows) This is a dare. One that will result in a woman getting upset over "Nothing" and will end with the word "Fine". GO AHEAD (normal eyebrows) This means "I give up" or "do what you want because I don't care". You will get a raised eyebrow "Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by "Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes" when she cools off. LOUD SIGH This is not actually a word, but is still often a verbal statement very 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 over "Nothing". SOFT SIGH Again, not a word, but a verbal statement. "Soft Sighs" are one of the few things that some men actually understand. She is content. Your best bet is to not move or breathe and she will stay content. THAT'S OKAY This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can say to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before paying you retributions for what ever it is that you have done. "That's Okay" is often used with the word "Fine" and used in conjunction with a raised eyebrow "Go Ahead". At some point in the near future when she has plotted and planned, you are going to be in some mighty big trouble. PLEASE DO This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman is giving you the chance to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing whatever it is that you have done. You have a fair chance to tell the truth, so be careful and you shouldn't get a "That's Okay". THANKS A woman is thanking you. Do not faint, just say you're welcome. THANKS A LOT This is much different from "Thanks". A woman will say, "Thanks A. Lot" when she is really ticked off at you. It signifies that you have hurt her in some callous way, and will be followed by the "Loud Sigh". Be careful not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh", as she will only tell you "Nothing".
After Jane's son fell into the pond yet again and came home with his good school clothes dripping wet, the exasperated Jane sent him to his room and washed and dried his clothes. A little later, Jane heard a commotion in the back yard. She called out "Are you out there wetting your pants again!?" There was dead silence for a moment. Then a deep, masculine voice answered meekly, "No, ma'am, I'm just reading the meter."

An old rabbi is talking with one of his friends and says with a warm smile, "I gladdened seven hearts today." "Seven hearts?" asks the friend. "How did you do that?" The rabbi strokes his beard and replies, "I performed three marriages." The friend looks at him quizzically. "Seven?" he asks. "I could understand six, but..." "Well, what do you think," says the rabbi, "that this for free I do?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jennifer Lee Herrington, 51, Orlando, Floriduh Jailed After Killing Boy at Crosswalk With Her Car, Fleeing and Leaving the Boy to Die. Reported by The Weekly Vice Jennifer Lee Herrington, a 51-year-old Florida woman, was jailed Monday after she tried to flee the scene after she ran down a 13-year-old boy with car at a crosswalk, then tried to flee scene. According to police, Herrington was driving at the intersection of North Semoran Blvd. and Old Cheney Highway when she blew a red light nd struck 13-year-old Omar Figueroa on the crosswalk with her car. Witnesses told officers that Herrington ignored a red light and struck Figueroa while he was using the crosswalk at around 7 p.m. Sunday night. Investigators say the impact of the hit threw the boy some distance. He was taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later. After striking Figueroa, Herrington reportedly tried to flee the scene in her vehicle, leaving Figueroa behind to die. Her vehicle was stopped about a block down the road when she became wedged between two other cars while attempting to squeeze in between them during the failed escape. A witness seized the opportunity to grab Herrington's keys out of her ignition while her car was stopped. Herrington reportedly slapped the witness's hands has he fought to get the keys. Witnesses held Herrington inside her car until Troopers arrived on the scene. She was then taken to Winter Park Hospital where blood was drawn prior to her incarceration. She was booked into the Orange County Jail and charged with leaving the scene of a deadly crash, with further charges pending. She remains held in lieu of $10,000 bond. Tech Support Pits From: Mannie Re: Hide key Dear Webby, You mentioned a key once for hiding what somebody is doing, but I did not write it down. Can you please tell me again? Mannie Dear Mannie The easiest and BEST way to do that is to use ALT plus TAB. Open the spreadsheet or document, that you are supposed to be working on, then open Email or Farmville or wherever you plan to goof off on. When the boss comes by, hit ALT plus TAB, and you instantly jump to whatever you were in, before you opened Farmporn. The escape-to program should be opened full screen, without any Solitaire cards or whatever peeking around the edges. It looks good if you actually start a bit into your work. When the boss is gone, ALT TAB back to where you are not supposed to be. Have FUN! DearWebby

A patient was waiting nervously in the examination room of a famous specialist. "So who did you see before coming to me?" asked the important doctor. "My local General Practitioner, Dr. Cohen." "Your GP?" scoffed the doctor. "What a waste of time. Tell me, what sort of stupid and useless advice did Cohen give you?" "He told me to go and see you, pretty dumb advice, isn't it?"
