Overheards and 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?

“Is there some sort of coolot convention going on?”

“I can imagine it would be entertaining as far as churching goes.”

“If I had a mustache I’d be in Hawaii.”

“Can you believe my van died with only 4, 096 miles on it?”


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?
