Overheard and Pet Peeves: April 6, 2018


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?

“Best relationship of my adult life and it’s with a shoe. Go figure.”

“Seems to me like just another overeducated dope.”

“It’s a popular topic of conversation, comparing symptoms.”

“I think I’m going to steal the knight and put it by my pirate in my clock.”

“4:05 pm and she’s finally sober.”

“Why do you even have knees? It’s not like your legs are that long anyway.”


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?

Professionals and tradespeople who don’t return phone calls. Seriously, are you guys not interested in earning a living?

Being overcharged for shipping.

Wet, sloppy snow that turns to slush when it hits the ground.

Dismal voter turnout.

Businesses that don’t keep their hours updated online.

People whose first resort is blaming and accusing.
