Overheards & 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?

“Please don’t tell God I ate this chicken.”

“You could be a prostitute in Japan.”

“How did you get a dinosaur out of that?”

“I love finding things in my pocket.”

“I really thought I was a poet, until I read the stuff I wrote.”

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?

“In the State of Wisconsin, horses have the right-of-way on roads. Please slow down and use caution when approaching horses.” ~ Anonymous

“Dust bunnies are my pet peeve. They seem to multiply faster than regular bunnies. Where do they ALL come from?” ~ Anonymous

“Nothing could peeve me more than a business making a major mistake and doing nothing to rectify the situation. We recently went for a ‘quick’ lunch at a coffee shop/cafe that turned into an hour and 15-minute ordeal, which with a 9.5 month old was stressful. Although we had patience the first 40 minutes while customers that arrived and ordered after us were served, after notifying the business of the error it took another 15 minutes to get a drink and 20 minutes to get our food – this was in addition to waiting 10 minutes to order. The worst part was that it did not seem to matter that they made a mistake and no action was taken to salvage our business. I can guarantee that we will not be returning to the establishment ever again.” ~ No Longer Your Customer
