“If I were you, I’d stay away from her. She’s trouble,” Chris advised his friend.
“But, dude, she’s gorgeous and she’s available,” Andrew said. “Look at this photograph of her on Instagram.”
“Yeah, I know she’s hot,” Chris admitted, “but I know a guy who went out with her for a while. You’ll be working overtime to try to keep her happy.”
“Why would you say that?”
“So what does that have to do with the price of tea in China?” Andrew asked. “What are you hoping to accomplish by telling me this?”
“Oh jeez, man,” Chris said. “Do I need to spell it out for you. Do I need to write you a letter?”
“No, but I just want to know why you are so down on this girl, dude,” Andrew said.
“I’m just saying, Andrew, that you need to be careful what you wish for.” Chris said. “That chick is ultra high maintenance.”
