Overheard and Shoutouts: June 30, 2017


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?

“Seriously, if there is a sewage fountain today, I’m taking a personal day.”

“It just smells like you pooped a candle.”

“I was the final honk.”

“What would happen if you accidentally put your head through the sleeve on a long-sleeved shirt? That would suck. You’d have a bunch of fabric bunched around your neck and it’d be hard to get off.”

“You got greedy. Now you’re double-plagued.”

“I’m afraid of what I could become with a debit card.”

“Maybe we could convince them to have it at their place, except I like flushing the toilet.”



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