Overheard and Pet Peeves: Nov. 3, 2017


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 think I’m turning white.”

“With all the creepy things you own I’m honestly surprised it didn’t happen sooner.

“Hello, would you like a tuna spoon?”

“The crabby one in Algoma, the airy fairy one in Sister Bay, and everything in between.”


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?

Carpeted kitchens

Websites that publish articles with detailed headlines on what happened in a brand new episode of a show five minutes after the episode ends.

When a person on Antiques Roadshow is given an appraisal of several thousand dollars for a postcard and they don’t even seem excited about it.

The ridiculous, excess packaging by Amazon for the smallest of items.

When Facebook comments on an Onion story get political.

That this fall’s temperatures completely skipped the pleasant 50s in favor of the cold and windy 40s.
