Overheard and Pet Peeves: March 8, 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?

“Well, he shouldn’t lead with magic – that’s for sure.”

“She would be one to eat messy appetizers.”

“Isn’t ‘chic muumuu’ an oxymoron?”

“I’m just looking forward to pistachios and kombucha.”

“Would there still be gum in the zombie apocalypse?”

“I think I’m too Midwestern for that.”


Is there something that really irks you, gets your goat, rubs you the wrong way, drives you up the wall, bends you out of shape, puts a stick in your craw or makes you want to throw in the towel?

People who drive with dogs in their laps.

Sticking license-plate renewal stickers all over the license plate.

Reckless driving when the roads are icy.
