This Chart Explaining ‘What Americans Say vs What They Mean’ Is So Accurate That I Feel Attacked

What we say and what we mean are very different things.

Depending on where you’re from, there are certain ways to say certain things. Like if you want to say “Good”, you can say “Awesome”, “Fabulous,” or “Amazing,” and they’d all mean the same thing.

How are you doing?

Awesome. Fabulous. Amazing.

But if someone says fine, then you’re not really fine.

Tyler Oakley tweeted this helpful chart to decode what you’re saying, and I take just one lesson. Americans are sarcastic people.

The reaction was just as hilarious as the chart.

Nothing you say is safe anymore.

Miscommunication makes sense now.
