Men are usual known for their word. You always hear the phrase, you are the ‘man of the hour’. Some men are leaders, others are followers. Many love completing tasks assigned by women, while others may absolutely hate tasks and getting their bums of their chairs.
Surveying 100 women, this article examines top 10 phrases men are known not to say, but should.
1. We never talk anymore:
Sometimes this opens up a number of cans of worms that man would prefer not to open. When saying that ‘we never speak anymore’ you’re opening yourself to a number of things, most notably a fight.
2. I understand:
This applies to both genders. Never do you want to admit that you are wrong. Saying I understand means that the person is giving in.
3. Let’s watch Y&R instead of sports:
Most men cannot stand soap operas, but women do. This is one conflict both have over who watches what at what time.
4. Happy Anniversary:
Survey results showed that most men would forget anniversaries. They are usually the first to do last minute shopping and the first person to be reminded of the date. Women have better rote memory than men when it comes to memorizing important events.
5. This food tastes terrible:
As much as men may not love the cooking, they may never admit it. This may change if the situation was really bad. For example, take Jerry Seinfeld. He was dating someone who could not cook. So instead of telling his date about it, he would spit the food out into napkins. Oddly enough it is true.

I’ve compiled a list of top 10 phrases women repeatedly use on men. Whether it be for breakups or to get men’s attention, women have been continuously caught. Some of the phrases are metaphorical weapons used to be blunt and to the point. Raise your hand if you recognize 1 or 2.
1. We need to talk:
When there is something wrong or a lady is bothered by something, she will use this phrase to initiate a conversation. Usually this phrase could lead to a breakup or an ultimate argument.
2. There is something you should know:
Although people desire to have a relationship based on trust, this is not always the case. When a woman uses this phrase, she usually wants to admit to something. Women who have a conscious will admit their wrong and will tell their boyfriend or husband about it. Usually women use this because they have either cheated on their significant other or have done something in the past that has come back to haunt them.
Men will sometimes encounter stubbornness in women. When women are wrong, they are not always ready to admit it. They will use the phrase “Whatever” to signify that they are not interested in talking about a particular situation and would like to change topics. This phrase is a rude way to deal with an awkward situation. Women who use this term mainly show no respect to their significant other or their feelings.
Whatever could also represent a weapon women use when they are mad. At this point, they are usually done speaking to their male affectionate.
4. Do you know what day is today?
Women usually are the ones that remember the important days in their relationships. Men sometimes need to be reminded of celebrations, birthdays, anniversaries and other occasions that are important to women. Women thus repeatedly use this phrase to signify that they are expecting a gift from their boyfriend or husband. This phrase usually means that the woman is annoyed and frustrated as well.
5. Five Minutes:
How many men have heard this phrase spoken by women? Women usually speak this term when they are running late and need a few more minutes. When dressing or putting on make-up, 5 minutes usually turns into an hour.

There is a right way and a wrong way of dealing with your car mechanic. In most instances, what you tell him and the way you discuss things with him are just as critical as the quality of service that he is suppose to deliver. Here are the top 10 worst things to say to a car mechanic.
1. Can you take a brief look at my car?
This is a ploy resorted to by most car owners who haven’t made up their mind yet whether they are willing to spend for a serious work up on their car or not. Mechanics will easily see through your motives and would most probably take on a noncommittal attitude towards your request.
2. I wonder what those red lights mean.
Probably your mechanic would be making up his unkind remarks in his mind once he hears you making those dumb statements. Indeed, those red lights are called “dumb” lights for a valid reason.
3. Just do a patch up job as I am going to sell it anyway.
Mechanics have heard this line before and they would greatly appreciate it if you don’t use this line when discussing a repair work with them. It has become a standard joke among mechanics.
4. Can you lend me your screwdriver?
Never borrow the tools of your mechanic and if you find the need to use one, it would be proper for you to provide for a security deposit for the tools that you are borrowing from them.
5. I will fix it myself but I not sure what exactly the problem is.
This is the height of insensitivity and your mechanic will never allow himself to exploited and abused by car owners. You are in effect saying that you are getting his service for the heavy stuff while you take on the simple task to complete the repair job.
