  1. Dibs

    Calling "dibs" is an informal convention where one declares a first claim to something to which no one else has a clearly recognized right. Calling "dibs" is only possible when the caller is able to take care of the claim. Such a declaration is often recognized in certain cultures, or sub-cultures, as a means to avoid arguments over relatively trivial issues.
