Yup, That’s What She Said.

Ah yes, the infamous “That’s What She Said”.  My love for this phrase is so strong that I have been named the TWSS Queen in the past by friends and coworkers.  I never miss an opportunity to mutter the words…even in inappropriate situations.  No one is safe around me when I feel the need to say it – not your kids, your mother, the pope…nobody.

I thought I would share some of my favorite TWSS moments with you:

  • A coworker of mine was tracking down a guest who needed to sign something.  When she finally found him she told him “I saw you on the escalator but I was going down as you were coming up…”  — that’s what she said.
  • I was trying to type in someone’s name into my email “to” field and couldn’t quite get the spelling correct so that it would pre-populate for me.  I called the person and said “It wouldn’t pop up for me so I couldn’t put it in” – that’s what she said.
  • I had done something at work to resolve a situation and my boss had responded via email with just these two words “Clam happy” yup I did, I had to respond with — that’s what she said.
  • A coworker and I were working on a situation and had to approach one of the “big wigs” with something.  She said to me “I hate to poke the dragon, but…” – that’s what she said.
  • My mom was helping a friend move her seat up in the car.  The seat was one of those manual ones with the lever instead of a switch.  Mom to her friend “See that thing there between your legs?  Grab it and pull!” – that’s what she said.
  • Just yesterday I overhead my coworker on the phone with someone and she said “It was really hard and I wasn’t sure how to hold it” – that’s what she said.
  • At the dinner table about a year ago, my husband had a funny TWSS moment.  I leaned over and whispered into his ear “That’s what she said”.  My nosy son, thinking he was missing a secret turned around and asked “WHO?? WHO IS SHE??”

    Jennifer,
    The more Le Clown reads you, the more he is inclined to come back.
    “That’s what Le Clown said…”.

    • HA! That’s ok you have an open invitation. Stop by whenever you like although my topics are never quite as cleverly written as yours….one day I’ll get there….maybe…then I’ll change my name to “Le Dock…protege of Le Clown”

  2. We have a hard enough time trying to get our older son to follow knock-knock jokes. Forget, “that’s what she said”. Our younger son on the other hand…he’s the real reason we don’t say that ’round here.

  3. Hilarious! I love that “TWSS” applies to so many conversations and situations. It’s universally appropriate! A good friend of mine loves this line so much he named his softball team “TWSS” so you’re not alone.
