Overheard and Pet Peeves: April 19, 2019


Are there tidbits 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?

“I don’t need to wipe my butt.”

“Can you do it for me, too?”

“Wow, I could put a ferret in there! But of course I would never put a ferret in a P.O. box.”

“That’s funny – I was daydreaming about a funnel before when I was eating it!”


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?

When someone else in the room has the same name, and you think people are talking to you when they’re actually addressing the other person.

The capitalized word “The” used in business names.

When someone says, “You think you’re busy …”

Tangled earbuds.
