Bro 1-Think I’m gonna go talk to that girl at the bar again, man. She’s lookin’ good.
Bro 2-The one in blue? That’s Tracy. I met her last week at the barbecue, she’s really cool. And she’s single.
Bro 1-The one you talked to me about? Should I hold off? You met her first.
Bro 2-Nah, it’s cool, I’m not hittin’ that. You go on over there.
Bro 1-You sure?
Bro 2-Yeah, I’m giving you the bro ahead, you can tell her I said “hi”.
Bro 1-Dude, that chick at the bar is totally hot!
Bro 2-That’s Tim's sister, man.
Bro 2-Yeah, “oh” is right. You better back off, cause you’re not getting the bro ahead on this one. Not after what happened with Tracy.
