Overheard and Pet Peeves: Oct. 13, 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?

“That’s one way to get a puppy – ask for a pony!”

“$1 apparel, man. Treat yo-self.”

“I won’t go to any of that. I just sit on my porch and watch the idiots.”

“Does he not know that those pants should only be worn by preteens who want to be mermaids?”

“Oh, Canada? Nevermind.”

“In what world are we compatible?”

“I told her to just enjoy her oldness.”

“I got a grundy, can you help me out?”


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? 

Spending your entire drive home from the grocery store trying to figure out what tipped over and is rolling around in your trunk.

What is with the increased littering on Hwy Q now that it is a detour? C’mon! People still chuck garbage out of their car windows? Really?

When you can’t remember the “Overheard” or “Pet Peeve” you wanted to share with the Pulse.

Post-game and sideline interviews. Pointless!

The unnerving growth of the fly population in early autumn, especially when that population selects your bedroom as its home base.
