Overheard and Shout Outs: April 13, 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 always find those endorsements weird. Oh, so some guy I don’t know likes some other guy I don’t know.”

“Most people experience an average of 68 percent hearing loss when naked.”

“If you call it a mini-marathon, it sounds like you’re doing laps around a fruit loop.”

“If you can’t dip your food in butter, you might as well be going to McDonald’s.”

“You could have done it with an Oreck!”

“I only need two thumbs!”

“What is with that family? They don’t understand the ‘honey and vinegar’ thing.”

“Any of you have a cigarette? I’ll give you some bacon.”


Is there someone or something that deserves a pat on the back or a slap on the wrist?
