What’s Said vs. What is Meant…

Who isn’t used to double-talk?  We see/hear it in the news every day; it’s all around us.

I belong to a close-knit group of women; every once in a while we take time to vent our frustrations about what takes place on the job, in relationships, with family, etc.  The following is one of our attempts to turn into a game the things that annoy us and decipher fact from fiction.   It’s a holiday and I’m in a good, celebratory mood; sharing this is my way of letting these women know that they have given me lots of food for thought and, of course, it’s just for laughs…

What’s said vs. what’s meant:

What’s said:  I would like for you to work with her to devise a plan of action.
What’s meant:  This entitled woman wants you to do her job for her and she’ll receive all the credit for a job well done.

>
What’s said (by her):  I really enjoy your company and like you as a friend.
What’s meant:   Um, your ‘equipment’ is just way too damn small!

What’s said:  That’s interesting!
What’s meant:  Just what in hell ARE you talking about?!?

What’s said (by boyfriend):  I really appreciate being with an independent woman!
What’s meant:  I’m SO glad YOU pick up the check when we go out!

What’s said (by skinny woman):  Are you hungry?
What’s meant: Bitch, you just KNOW your big and greedy arse should never eat again!

What’s said (in response to skinny woman):  Thanks, but I’m full – you can have the last piece.
What’s meant:  You’re gonna need all the nourishment you can get because when we get outside I’m gonna beat some meat on your skinny arse!

What’s said:  You sound totally different over the phone….
What’s meant:  You’re a MAN? WTF!!!

What’s said:  Wow, you have a Master’s Degree? That must have been hard! You must be really smart!
What’s meant:  Damn, I had a hard time finishing high school!  I hate you uppity types!

What’s said (by him):  I need more time.
What’s meant:  There’s a whole world of women out there I wanna sleep with!
