Overheard and Pet Peeves: Feb. 15, 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?

“It looks like you’re from Whoville.”

“We have enough wall talk.”

“Oh, that’s why they get together? Screw the rodents!”

“You know I don’t like large creatures of the sea.”

“The only thing I liked about last night was Gladys Knight.”

“I have a problem with her face.”

“You like the Grateful Dead? I gotta get out of this.”


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 people plow out their driveway and subsequently leave a pile of snow in the roadway.

Winter weather that doesn’t know when to take a break. I don’t mind snow, but having a few days in between snowfalls would be ideal.

Pens that run out of ink halfway through a meeting.
