Overheard & Pet Peeves: Dec. 14, 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?

“Lincoln was unfortunate looking. Allegedly.”

“It’s hard out there right now for hair follicles.”

“Man, I just can’t wait to get home and watch the Bears.”

“I have to tell you of the reaction I saw of a photograph.”

“Are they identical?”

– Question posed to parent of girl-boy twins

“I’ve never licked a Christmas tree – at least I don’t recall.”

“It tastes like pulverized pine needles mixed with coffee and cream. I think that’s a definite pass.”



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?
