Things men say….we all know how the guys are! Most of those lil phrases they use carry hidden meanings. I’ve made a small list of those phrases and the true translations of them! Hope you enjoy!
1. “We are NOT lost. I know exactly where we are.”
translation: I have absolutely no idea where we are and I am not stopping to ask for directions. Directions are for wimps and I’m gonna blame your map reading skills in about ten minutes!
2. “Five more minutes.”
translation: It is Saturday morning and I have all intentions of sleeping till 2pm. Five minutes mean anywhere from 2-5 more hours…
3. “I got this.”
translation: I have no idea what I’m doing but I’ve seen this shit on YouTube and it looks like it can be done. I am a man and it is my duty to attempt all crazy ideas!
4. “See, what had happened was…”
translation: I did something really stupid and you are probably gonna holler at me a whole lot! I am really trying to paint a pretty picture of it though.
5. “Babe, I’m hungry.”
translation: Make me a sandwich, woman.
6. “Babe, since you’re up…”
translation: I really don’t need anything at the moment, but I’m pretty sure I’ll need something within the next hour and I won’t wanna move off the couch.
7. “I’m going fishing.”
translation: I am going to drink myself into a stupor while holding a fishing pole. The fish will just swim on by unless we hook a dork fish. Afterwards, I will have an awesome story when I get home though about a giant fish that almost pulled me outta the boat.
8. “It’s a guy thing.”
translation: Whatever it is…it makes no sense to me and I have no idea how to even begin to explain it. It’s just the way I am and if this turns into an argument I’m gonna blame my buddies.
9. “Can I help with dinner?”
translation: This one can have two meanings…..1. Why ain’t dinner on the table yet? 2. I’m just trying to appear helpful so I can refer back to this situation when you say I don’t do anything around the house.
10. “Yes, dear.”
translation: I ain’t got a clue what you just said but I know it’s easier to just agree and move on to the next thing.
11. “I can’t find it.”

12. “I heard you, babe.”

13. “You look great.”

14. “Honey, we share the housework.”

16. “Can we talk about this later?”
translation: I never ever ever wanna talk about this again.

translation: The first drink is my choice…all the others will be blamed on my buddies! Peer pressure!
