Overheard and Pet Peeves: Nov. 23-Dec. 2


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?

“Look at all those butts bowing down to you!”


“You’re a small bush.”


“Egypt, like the country Egypt? I thought that was the Luxor in Vegas!”


“If we don’t laugh at our own jokes, then nobody’s going to.”



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?
