Overheard and Shout Outs: Sept. 30, 2016


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 wonder what they are doing with the old tower? We could slap an Acorn Stairlift System on that thing and mom would be able to spy on every neighbor in a 30-mile radius.”


From a radio weather report: “Tomorrow: overcast. Highs between 60 and 80.”


“I’m getting my life together. Yeah I live in a homeless shelter, but I’m getting there.”


“Yeah, she’s crazy…but she’s hot. They kind of balance each other out, you know?”


“In Wisconsin, cleaning the toilet has to have a beer chaser.”


“He even got the senior discount. If that’s not a man for me, I don’t know who is.”



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