Overheard and Pet Peeves: April 1, 2016


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 are predicting between one and 14 inches of snow in Sturgeon Bay.”


“I’m really glad you left the bedroom when you did this morning because I had a really big fart. How’s that for sexy?”


“Where’s that leather hat you used to wear?” “Hat or pants?!”


“Curse my fat fingers and the tiny keyboards on smartphones!”


“You got the information you wanted from someplace else, but you still called? To tell me you didn’t need to call me?”


“It’s either the shirt or suspenders. I’m not wearing both.”


“If political correctness means you’re not allowed to get upset whenever someone expresses an idea, the same principle applies to YOU.”



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?




Potato chip bags filled with 80% air.


Walking into a store to grab one item and being greeted by a cranky cashier telling you the store closes in 10 minutes.


The paranoia that results from missing a phone call from a strange number and then getting a voicemail.


Pulling the ice cube tray out of the freezer only to find it empty.


Accidentally setting your alarm clock for P.M. instead of A.M.
