New Survey Reveals The Worst Things to Say to Women

Update Date: Apr 09, 2013 07:24 AM EDT

A new survey has revealed some of the worst things to say to a woman.

UK researchers found that the number one worst thing to say to a woman is asking them "When's the baby due?" when she is not actually pregnant, according to 26 percent of women.

The Daily Mail reports that the second worst thing to say is "Yes, your butt looks big," according to 17 percent of women in the survey.

The poll revealed that 13 percent of women thought the nastiest thing a man could say to a woman was "You look tired" and 12 percent of women in the survey thought "Calm down dear" was the worst thing a person can say.

"Will you need a hand parking that, luv?", "You look more and more like your mother every day," and "I told you so," also made the list of phrases women hated hearing the most.

The survey conducted by paintballing.co.uk, found that the ninth and tenth worst things to say to a woman were "Should you be eating that?" and "Haven't you got some hovering (vacuuming) to do?"

"Sometimes guys say these things to women thinking that they will see it in the same jest with which the comment was said. This is often not the case," said a spokesperson for paintballing.co.uk, according to the Daily Mail. "I'm not at all surprised that 'when's it due' came out top of the poll, no one likes to be thought of as fat."
