how not to request a song – part 20

gentleman – when your girl comes to you after having her request turned down by the DJ, don’t come to her rescue. think about it, we wouldn’t rather talk to you.

her: ok, i know the answer is going to be no
me: no
her: (smiles)
me: no requests
her: how about some bieber??
me: no requests/wait, what? (realizing just how bad the request was)…i don’t even have that
her: what do you have?
me: it doesn’t work like that
her: (shrugs) that’s all i got
me: ok

90 seconds later:
him: you got something nice you can play for my girl
me: no requests
him: a little rihanna?
me: no requests
him: what you got coming up?
me: i don’t know
him: you got something nice you can give me a preview of?
me: no!
