Overheard & Pet Peeves: Nov. 21, 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?

“I had two upturned collars and a perm.”

“There are people with personality disorders and also sociopaths and then whatever Madonna is.”

“I’m like goulash – a little bit of everything.”

“Did she say she went to a Bar Mitzvah for a schnauzer or a quinceañera for a chihuahua?”

“I can’t believe you got me on Aqua’s ‘Barbie Girl.’”

“Mine had an otter-shaped head and the eyes were very evil.”

“I know you don’t eat meat, but you eat chicken don’t cha?”



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’re driving and suddenly there’s a large rock or log in the middle of the road.

Smoke alarms that wait until 2 am to decide the battery is low.

Dry, itchy winter skin

The lingering smell of raw onions the morning after you chopped them for dinner.
