Overheard and Shout Outs: March 23, 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?

“You’re not sensitive. You’re just a big baby with gray hair.”

“I just try not to be promiscuous with my hugs.”

“I’m sympathy cringing for you.”

“Why are they friends now? Wasn’t it enough to just not be enemies?”

“That’s a good shot – you can see the sparkle in the unicorn’s eye.”

“I got called Jackie again. I guess the nameplate doesn’t help.”


Is there someone or something that deserves a pat on the back or a slap on the wrist?
