Gentlemen's favorite sentence.
Men with good manners, will always let the woman go first (example through the door etc.)
but it's not the true meaning.
In reality, it means "Lady, go first so can I stare at your butt
Andy :" Ladies first" *opens door*
Marina:" very kind, you are a true gentleman"
Andy :" Indeed" *stares at nice butt!*
An unwritten rule that dictates that the wishes of a gir's or woman's female friends supercede that of the male.
Female #1: My boyfriend is a gangbanger and wants me to be Bonnie to his Clyde.
Female #2: I don't give a shit what the hell he wants! If you keep going with him, I'll have him taken care of, if you know what I mean. We're supposed to be friends to the end, and after all, the law is ladies first!
