When you horribly reject your ex boyfriend over text when he "HYPOTHETICALLY" accuses you of going for his best friend.
HIM: "You would be a dick if you went for ___."
HER: "We're becoming better friends but we're not a thing."
HIM: "That would be like me going for one of your close friends you realize that, right?"
HER: "Yeah, we're just becoming food friends."
HIM: "Better be all it is."
HER: 'If you HYPOTHETICALLY rape someone, it's not actually rape. Think about it. Get off me, seriously!"
HIM: "Dang, you really set fire to the rain."
