Overheard and Pet Peeves, Sept. 25 – Oct. 2


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 weren’t blooming. They were just hard little balls.”

“My gut doesn’t tell me anything ever, except when I’m hungry.”

“I think the fish on your right nipple is a bass.”

“That was probably my favorite marriage!”

“I have an actual bag under my eye.”

“Looks like Russell needs to stop one-two steppin’ Ciara or his game is going to keep tanking.”

“Cover half of her face while she is smiling and tell me she doesn’t look evil.”


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?

Vehicles passing bicyclists in their lane by coming head-on into my lane!

Vehicle owners who press the “lock” button on their remote until the horn goes off to announce that the doors are locked. Especially annoying when they are standing right next to the vehicle.

Drivers who don’t wait until a bicyclist has gotten to the top of a hill or past a 90-degree curve to pass them.


Publications that report on the Kardashians.

When you’re the only person in a store aisle looking at something and you somehow become a magnet for every other person in the store who decides they also need to look at what you’re looking at.

People who use Facebook to seek medical advice.
