You need to know this expression … to get what you want! Yep!


When sb says: DIBS (on), they say that they have they right to choose or have sth before other people.

How can you use it?


You and your friends go to Peter’s place to watch a football match. You let your friend Jamie, who goes with you the first time, choose the seat he wants to. Cause there’s the best one – in front of the TV.

So, Jamie HAD FIRST DIBS on the seat.


You are with your friends and there’s the last piece of chocolate cake in the fridge. You shout:

DIBS ON the chocolate cake!

It means… you get it. Of course, if your friends “respect DIBS”:)))

So, you CALLED DIBS ON the chocolate cake.


What would you like to CALL DIBS ON?
