For example, their “Whatever”, “Anything”,: OR “You Decide”

1. Whatever:

Men: “What should we have for dinner?”

Women: “Whatever..”

Men: “Why don’t we have Mexican?”

Women: “No, not Mexican. The last time. I got pimples on my face.”

Men: “All right, why don’t we have Szechwan cuisine?”

Women: “Yesterday we ate Szechwan, today too?”

Men: “Hmm….. I suggest we have seafood.”

Women: “Seafood is not good, I got diarrhea.”

Men: “Then what do you suggest?”

Women: “Whatever…”

2. Anything:

Men: “So what should we do now?”

Women: “Anything.”

Men: “How about watching a movie? It’s been a long time.”

Women: “Watching movie is no good, it’s a waste of time.”

Men: “How about we go bowling, or some exercises?”

Women: “Exercise on such a hot day?”

Men: “Then find a cafe and have a drink.”

Women: “I am off caffeine.”

Men: “Then what do you suggest?”

Women: “Anything…”


3. You decide:

Men: “Then do we just go home?”

Women: “You decide.”

Men: “Let’s take the bus. I will accompany you.”

Women: “The bus is dirty and crowded.”

Men: “OK; we will take a cab.”

Women: “Not worth it… For such a short distance?”

Men: “All right, then we can walk. We can enjoy the weather.”

Women: “I am hungry, can’t walk.”

Men: “Then what do you suggest?”

Women: “You decide.”

Men: “Let’s have dinner first?”

Women: “Whatever…”

Men: “What shall we eat?”

Women: “Anywhere…”


Which brings us back to the first option.
