    Smile you go first (you go ahead)

    Hello~ Can you help me say this naturally please?

    Situation 1.
    A and B are on the way to go to school.
    A ran into his friend and say to B.
    A: Hey, sorry, you go first (you go ahead), I have something to talk with him.
    B: Oh, ok, see you class room then.


    Situation 2.
    A and B decided to tell their secret to each other.
    But no one wants to start first.
    A: You go first. (You go ahead).
    B: No, you go first. (You go ahead).
