A snippet is a brief quotable passage. People who think in snippets are called 'whipper-snippers.'
Women have a greater propensity to hear snippets and deduce from them because they have conversational skills that men don't have and men tend to internalize and think about things differently.
While driving in a car:
Man: Oh! There's that trading firm. I made millions off of them.
Woman: Williams!? What is that!? Williams!? Williams!? What is that!?!
Man: Williams!? What is Williams!? I said millions, 'whipper-snipper.' Where do you get 'williams' from 'millions' talking about a trading firm!?
