Overheard and Pet Peeves: May 18, 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?

“I hope you don’t repeat that to other people because somebody’s gonna punch you in the face.”

“Well, there’s a lot of men around here that look pregnant.”

“We need a replacement Bonnie.”

“Things that sit on toilets do not need to sit on counters.”

“I know it’s only Tuesday, but it’s been a week.”



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?

Cabinet doors and drawers left open or part way open.

Sunday drivers on County Q.

Seedless grapes with seeds!

Ill-fitting socks.
