Overheard and Pet Peeves: Jan. 29, 2016


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?


“Hope is not enough. You need rum.”


“You need to give Pandora tender, loving care to get what you want.”


“Wedding? I thought that was an intervention.”


“I thought maybe you’d fallen in the toilet again.”


“You don’t know how much I know about bananas.”


“I don’t want to hear your snot coming out of your head while I’m eating!”


“It definitely does not grow with age.”



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?


Hard-boiled eggs that don’t peel nicely.


Incorrect use of the word “ravel.” Usually “ravel” is meant, not “unravel.”


Fill-in forms with tiny boxes.


People who complain about everything!


Truck and SUV drivers who don’t brush the snow off the top of their vehicle after a snowfall.


People who use their cellphones while driving.
