  • Depends on the situation

  • depends on what you are talking. Almost always it means much later 4-6 hours later but more than likely the next day

  • The MAYBE means its not going to happen and I do not care that much about your time to be on time, you have to wait for me anyway its not like you have a lot going on.

  • well,men can not measure, time included

    we all know when a man says 10 inches, what he thinks is 10 inches, is really 5

    so i am guessing about one hour means, about 2 hours
    unless he means he lasts about one hour, than that translates to 10 minutes on a good day

  • there is a whole book series on real translations of a man's idea of measurement
    send me an email, i can hook you up for only four payments of 19.95 a month
    (in a man's measurement, about 5 bucks)

  • I guess it depends on the guy and what it is he is to do. With my dad he takes much longer than he says. Example: last month when he called to tell me he was leaving his house and would be at mine in 20 minutes ( which is how long it is supposed to take to get to my house from his) I know that means it will take him at least 45min to 1hr. I almost always have to double and almost triple the timeframe he gives me. My hubs on the other hand is better about telling time and if he says an hour then it generally is somewhere around an hour (give or take a few min).

  • men can't tell time so this answer can range to three-six hours later!!
