  • Hey, mom, can I borrow 40 dollars?

  • 40 dollars?

  • What for?

  • I am getting dinner with a friend.

  • 40 dollars for dinner?

  • What are you having, five dinners?

  • Okay... it's a girl.

  • I am taking a girl, please!

  • What happened to your allowance?

  • I spent it.

  • Wow, then you should have saved it like I always tell you, sucka!

  • Why not you just let her pay?

  • I can't do that.

  • Why not?

  • Girls are all about being equal these days.

  • But isn't it just expected that guys pay on the first date?

  • Yeah, but sometimes girls feel like they owe you something if you pay.

  • So if you let her, she'll feel more relaxed.

  • Ohh... but i don't want to look cheap.

  • She might actually thinks that you are being really current and respectful.

  • It's all about how you say it.

  • I guess when you put it that way...

  • Heyyy!

  • What?

  • Can I borrow like 40 bucks?

  • Why?

  • Are you broke?

  • I spent everything on this dress.

  • I will pay you back right after I get my next paycheck!

  • Wait, it's your first date.

  • Yeah.

  • So, what do you have to worry about?

  • The guy always pays, doesn't he?

  • Well, not necessarily, and I don't want to just rely on that.

  • Whatever, we all know you don't actually expect to pay anyway.

  • Girls just reach for their wallet, but all guys know you don't actually intend on using it.

  • We see right through that.

  • Well, I would, alright?

  • I don't want to be that kind of girl.

  • Guys are happy to pay on the first date.

  • They want to, so just let them.

  • Problem solved!

  • Well, it looks really nice on you.

  • Thanks!

  • I just got it today.

  • Oh, You just got it for tonight huh?

  • Maybe.

  • Here you are, thanks guys!

  • Uh... let me...

  • Oh... no, I can.

  • Okay.

  • What?

  • Uh, well, I know you are a strong girl so I don't want to imply anything by just picking up the check.

  • Oh, it wouldn't at all.

  • If you feel like you wanted to pay for tonight, that'd be so sweet.

  • But so chauvinistic, I mean, who am I to force social standards on you.

  • Not chauvinistic, um, chivalrous.

  • I'd be so grateful.

  • That's the thing, I wouldn't want you to feel like you owe me anything.

  • Don't be silly.

  • I just feel like, you are an awesome guy.

  • Right... uh... ..but... being that awesome guy, I understand that women desire to feel respected and equal.

  • Unless that's not how you feel about yourself.

  • That's very considerate of you, but I also understand that the guys like take care of girls every once in a while.

  • But you are not the type to expect guys to just pay all the time.

  • Not at all, I just thought you would want to do a nice gesture.

  • Don't you want to be independent?

  • Don't you want to impress me?

  • Why don't you two just split the bill?

  • So, what are you doing next Thursday?

  • Ahh... sorry.

  • [Save the date]

  • [Save for the date]

  • Next Thursday, nothing, actually.

  • Oh well, do you want to try this again?

  • Dinner, I promise I'll pay.

  • Yeah, I'd like that, but you don't have to pay.

  • No, I insist.

  • I appreciate it, but I have a job.

  • I can pay for things.

  • I wasn't implying that you don't have money.

  • I just want to be chivalrous.

  • Don't worry about it, I wanna pay.

  • No, I wanna pay.

  • I thought you were gonna pay!
