Overheard and Pet Peeves: April 21, 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?

“She’s like a milkshake on a hot summer day – tasty, delicious and spoils fast.”

“You know, there’s only a one-letter difference between chefing and chafing.”

“You can find plenty of people who want to be touched – go hug them.

“I like a good, foul mouth.”

“Everybody thinks their dog is the best dog in the world, and everybody is right.”

“I’m not going to be able to sleep tonight thinking about how the animals from Homeward Bound are all dead.”


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?

When you pass a slow driver, who after you are safely in front of them, suddenly has the wherewithal to drive at an appropriate rate of speed, usually far too close to your rear bumper. Apparently they are unable to control their own rate of speed with their foot and need you to do it for them!

When the plastic piece that connects your gas cap to your car snaps off.

April snowflakes.

Landlords who threaten a late fee if your rent check is two days late and then don’t cash your check for six weeks.

Seeing John Cena in crocs.

Huggers who think it is their responsibility to “fix” people who don’t like physical affection by forcing hugs on them.
