Overheard & Pet Peeves: Jan. 4, 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?

“Because you bathed today, it’s a big day.”

“I’m not always in a svelte situation.”

“What’s her obsession with dissection?”

“I hover and cover.”

“What treat would get you out of the vent?”

“Well you’re Instant Pot-ing like crazy.”

“How low do the expectations have to go?”


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?
