There are certain phrases a man should just never utter when he’s fighting with his girlfriend.
It doesn’t matter how rational or irrational she may actually be because, when you’re arguing, the majority of rationale has already been tossed out the window.
When someone is lashing out at you, it’s only natural to tell this person to “calm down;” however, when that someone is your girlfriend — and she’s pissed — this is the last thing she wants to hear, whether the reaction is warranted or not.
In that moment, the woman feels as if her emotions are completely justified, so when you decide to use any of these phrases, you’re mostly nullifying and invalidating them.
What he really means: “Oh babe, don’t get so worked up, it’s really not a big deal.”
What it means to a female: “YOU ARE OUT OF YOUR F*CKING MIND.”
Why you should stop using it: Because no matter how sincere you are, this phrase is the quickest way to ignite the fire that’s already blazing.
Synonyms: “Calm down;” “take a deep breath.”
2. “You’re crazy.”
What he really means: “You are acting completely irrational and out of character.”
What it means to a female: “What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”
Why you should stop using it: You ain’t seen nothing crazy until you label a woman as such; we take it as a challenge.
Synonyms: “You’re being irrational.”
3. “My ex never did this.”
What he really means: “Someone I dumped so I could upgrade to you wouldn’t even pull a stunt like this.”

4. “It’s not that big of a deal.”
What he really means: “It REALLY is not that big of a deal.”

5. “It’s all in your head.”
What he really means: “I’m not sure why you would think that when there is no logical reason to…”
What it means to a female: “You are creating problems that don’t exist because you’re being paranoid for no reason.”
Why you should stop using it: It insinuates that we are crazy.
Synonyms: “That isn’t even true!”
6. “You look fine.”
What he really means: “You look good.”
What it means to a female: “You look absolutely awful”; “You look like nothing special.”
Why you should stop using it: Just tell the girl what you know she wants to hear, it’ll only help you out in the long run.
Synonyms: “That looks fine.”
What he really means: “I give in! You win!”
What it means to a female: “I couldn’t give less of a sh*t.”

8. “I’m not mad.”
What he really means: “I am actually not mad at all.”
What it means to a female: “I am actually pissed and you definitely do not want to hear how I really feel.”

Synonyms: “I’m totally fine;” “I swear everything is fine.”
9. “You look the same.”
What he really means: “That is the best f*cking haircut I have ever seen in my whole life!”
What it means to a female: “Did you just waste $200 to look exactly the same?”
Why you should stop using it: JUST LIE TO US!
Synonyms: “You don’t look any different.”
10. “Are you sick?”
What he really means: “I am very concerned for your health because you don’t look like you normally do.”

Synonyms: “You can’t even see it!”

What it means to a female: “You are an irrational human being.”
Why you should stop using it: We need someone to vent to about our friends and it’s in your job description to fill this role.
Synonyms: “So why do you hang out with her?”

These PPEs comprise N95 respirators, surgical masks, examination gloves, face shields, medical gowns, no-touch thermometers, disposable aprons, heavy-duty rubber gloves, rubber boots, basic masks, disposable gloves, and hand sanitizers.
Since the first confirmed case of the disease in Nigeria reported in February, over 800 healthcare workers have contracted the disease. While Nigerians are encouraged to stay home where possible and practice social distancing, these healthcare workers are needed across the country in the continued fight against the disease.
This donation forms part of The Coca-Cola Foundation’s COVID-19 relief interventions in Nigeria.

Taking Care of Tomorrow’s Leaders Today – The itel, Lagos Food Bank Example
Waking up to a special meal or choice gift is the best feeling ever. Hundreds of children in Mushin, mainland Lagos, had a filling taste of this feeling for the October 1 st celebrations. It’s an experience they will remember for a long time.
Being one of the most responsible corporate citizens around, celebrating Independence Day was always going to be on the radar for itel Mobile. To make this possible and memorable, the brand got to work in earnest. The focus of the work was picking the best way to commemorate the 60th independence anniversary of the most populous black nation on earth.
The efforts soon paid off through an impact-driven partnership with the Lagos Food Bank Initiative. With the arrangement, both partners considered a couple of activities capable of affecting communities positively and bringing smiles to people’s faces in Lagos. At the end of the exercise, taking care of children, the leaders of tomorrow, in the commercial city secured the highest votes.
With the decision, itel Mobile set about making this happen. Not surprisingly, the decision was
influenced by giving children the means to excel and prepare them for leadership and nation-building, for them to enjoy better life. For the good of their immediate family, community and the Nigerian society.
Idiko, Mushin, a suburb of mainland Lagos, was chosen as the benefiting community. And the partners strategically reached out to the beneficiaries, children and families, with gifts of love, care, happiness and support made possible by the itel Love Always On CSR initiative.
Over 1,000 families benefited from the gesture as well as 600 children, and each one of them received food packages to celebrate Nigeria’s 60 th Independence Day commemoration.
Speaking on the event and itel’s Love Always On CSR Initiative, Oke Umurhohwo, itel’s Marketing Manager said, ‘We wanted to mark this year’s Independence Day celebrations differently, and that is why we did something so momentous for our children. Children are the backbone of any longstanding community, and as such, we are proud to be able to give back and support them on their journey as leaders of tomorrow and for a better life.’
To meet the demands of the memorable event, 30 volunteers joined the customer-centric brand and the Lagos-based NGO to share smiles, and to convey just how important it is to love and take care of today’s children who will ultimately become leaders of tomorrow.
With the thoughtful activity, there are insights for everyone, from the government to citizens, on partnerships that are capable of making life better for children. Indeed, itel Mobile and the Lagos Food Bank Initiative have offered a great template on bringing this to reality.
