Overheard and Pet Peeves: Jan. 5, 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?

“If you got a concussion from a colonoscopy, I think they were working on the wrong end.”

“That tree looks so real, just like an artificial!” (said by an admirer of a fresh-cut, Door County Christmas tree)

“If she was a nice, easy person, I’d be all over this.”

“That’s not Chewbacca, it’s a teddy bear.”

“Even the guy at the bar got hot sauce from someone!”


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 leave alcohol/soda in the car during sub-zero temperatures.

The number of times you’ll write “2017” on a document before you get used to writing “2018.”

Shopping carts with squeaky/wobbling wheels.

When you buy a food item from the store and discover, once home, that it is expired.
