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??”
