Overheard and Pet Peeves


Are there tid-bits of conversations you’ve heard while standing in line at the grocery store, serving a table, or walking down the sidewalk that make you smile, cringe or laugh out loud?

“It’s going to rain on the monkeys…. Silly monkeys.”

“Find the right hole.”

“I frickin’ love this island….so far.”

“These bank cards will be the end of me.”

“Love me some Jordy!”

“Since I make minimum wage, I feel extra empowered to quit. I mean really, who needs who in this relationship?”

“Say something weird and I’ll type it.”

“Use that pinky!”

“I’m starting to get used to the toilet gurgles.”

“These are my ‘man vs. flooded basement’ short shorts.”

“He’s a winker and a whistler. Definitely not date-worthy.”

“I don’t care who the Governor is, but I do like a weed-free lawn.”


Is there something that really irks you, gets your goat, rubs you the wrong way, drives you up the wall, gets you bent out of shape, puts a stick in your craw, or makes you want to throw in the towel?

“Clear razor caps that I can’t see when they fall on the shower floor…especially because I don’t wear glasses in the shower!”

“When smoky firewood makes my clothes smell.”

“Low water pressure.”

“Soupy baked rigatoni.”

“Horse poo on my shoe.”
