Girl: I don’t un­der­stand some­one who can just say it’s not go­ing to work out. How can you just say it’s not go­ing to work out?

Guy #2: I did. She lied and said she was 21.
Guy #1: And you did­n’t ask for some iden­ti­fi­ca­tion?
Guy #2: Yeah man, ’cause the way to get a girl in­to bed is to ask her for some ID first.
Guy #1: Good point… Well, how old did you say you were?
Guy #2: 21.
Guy #1: 21?!
Guy #2: Yeah, 21.
