Overheard and Pet Peeves: June 29, 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?

“They’re like sloths with makeup problems.”

“I couldn’t tell if I was being soothed or nauseated.”

“Pale people always look different under fluorescent lights.”

“Everybody deserves high-quality tuna.”

Overheard at the Sturgeon Bay DMV:  “You are a bully. Bullying has to stop!”

“I don’t want to go down the rabbit-hole of latex instagrams.”

“I’m a barefoot woman.”



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?

People who don’t push their chair in.

A cough that won’t go away

Old knees

Pedestrians who linger near crosswalks with little conviction to actually cross the road.
