Overheard and Pet Peeves: March 11, 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?


“Food porn is the best kind of porn.”


“I’m not surprised a guy like yourself is obsessing over a naked cartoon butt now.”


“Seals are kind of like potatoes. But with eyes and flippers.”


“If you sit down too hard you’re going to be rained on by toilet paper.”


“My husband and I have been married 12 years, so we’re almost done.”


“If I close one eye, I can see!”


“That’s how I’ll get through the rest of the day, just snack on Adderall.”



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?


Live movie commentary at the theater.


“Are you awake?” Well, I am now.


When you tell someone that you just started a new show and they respond by asking if you’ve seen the part where the main character dies yet.


Loud yawners.


People who grunt while they eat.


Overhearing the spreading of misinformation at a public place and wanting to correct it but also not wanting to look like a jerk.
