Overheard and Pet Peeves: June 8, 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?

“Eunice Corn?”

“I’ll untangle my cord if you stop smoking till you stop coughing.”

“So far there’s been lots of doors and a couple naked guys.”

“It’s easiest to start with the nose.”

“Why don’t we go to the kitty park?”

“Kids are basically like drunk adults.”

“For Door County, there’s a lot of cactus in here.”



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?

Stubbing toes on furniture

Finding ants in a box of Junior Mints

When a pencil sharpener makes the lead point wonky

Tailgating speeders and carmakers who don’t add rear-mounted bazookas
