Overheard/Pet Peeves


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?


“It’s okay to say you’re going to ‘flip sh**’ if something happens, but you actually have to do it when the time comes.”


“I like to be cozy and warm. Screw the Earth.”


“It wouldn’t be so bad if you didn’t have a mix of anger and confusion on your face when you dance.”


“You had me at Barry Manilow.”


“Let’s get sassy, ladies. Whoo!”


“I am NOT buying socks that have been pre-worn or underwear that have been pre-worn … that’s just gross!”


“It’s a crappy day to be an animal.”


“Dude, you bruised my nipple!”



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?


Women who do not have an identity outside of their husband’s name.


People who stand in judgment on others before they know the story behind the story.


When the zip-lock on a plastic bag breaks.


Grabbing your keys after painting your nails.


When you’re already frustrated about something and someone, in an attempt to help, make things worse by starting their sentence with, “You should’ve …”


Trying to have a conversation with someone who constantly interrupts.


Any status that includes, “I have the best boyfriend ever.” No you don’t, I do!
