Overheard...

I was at the gym today.  Two high school girls were sitting on the mats and "working out their abs," which basically meant that they were chatting, texting, and doing half-assed crunches when they felt like it.  We will call them Stephanie and Ashley.

Stephanie: "So like, are hot dogs bad for you?"
Ashley: "Ohmygod, I asked my mom that the other day!"
Stephanie: "Are they?  I had two for lunch.  I never eat them with the bun though."
Ashley: "Yeah, I think they're OK.  You know, without the bun."
Stephanie: 'Yeah, OK, good!"

Pretty much speaks for itself.  :o

Overheard anything crazy like that lately?  I love hearing people's conversations.

Yeah, living in the ghetto has its perks sometimes.

this isn't really overheard, nor really a vegan win. More like an extremely-awkward-self-reference-and-reference-to-veganism.

my group from school was at another school's "beef unit," where we were doing the breeding soundness exams of bulls. One of the people in my group (person A) is more familiar with food animal medicine, and wasn't really bothered by all the feces and the fact that you have to put your arm in the rectum, feces and all, to complete the exam. Someone else (person B) was totally grossed out, not used to food animal medicine, but worked with pets before.

...
B: "Doesn't that ever bother you - all the poop?"
A: "No, I don't think it's gross at all. I've had it on my face."
B: "What!! That's so gross. So gross."
A: "Well, they're herbivores. It's just undigested plant stuff."
B: "Yeah but poop is poop. I mean, you're saying that you're more grossed out by the cat and dog fecal exams?"
A: "Yeah! They're carnivores so their poop is totally gross. Herbivore poop doesn't smell. It's not the same."
B: "I don't see a difference. So you'd rather be covered in cow sh*t than do a fecal exam on a dog?"
A: "Yeah!"
B: "So fb's feces would be totally fine, but mine would be gross?"
A: " ... "
me: " ... "
B: "I'm just saying, 'cause she's an herbivore and I'm not."
A: " ... um..."
B: "Ok."

Girl A: "I thought you broke up with Javi."
Girl B: "I did, last week. I just don't feel that way about him anymore."
A: "But you're still wearing the ring!"
B: "Oh, I still feel the same about the ring."

my roommate, after eating fried chicken, coated in bacon and topped with tons of cheese said this-

"well i don't think this has too many calories since we made it at home."

oh, that's right, because calories don't count as long as you do the cooking....um what?!

Guy2: Yeah, on the second floor.
1: So, uh, where is the library?
2: YOUR MOM is in the library.
1:...but seriously, dude... where is the library?
2: I have no idea.

Said while walking past a building that says LIBRARY across the side. I do not go to a good school.

I love everyone's stories. I usually don't hear people talking in public places because I always pack my earphones so that I can just people watch and avoid conversation.

I heard this today at work.. I work in a call center. It's a very robotic and stamped-out job which I HATE! I'm grateful to be employed but I'm going back to school to move on with my life. At work, I have to read scripted answers. As I was hanging up the phone from one caller, I heard her in the background making fun of my scripts and the fact that I had to say them.

Yes, I hate them too lady! But I've gotta do my job. Sidenote: so many people love these jobs. How?!! I'm not a cubicle man. I've got to create/analyze. Plus, my cynicism/lack of empathy doesn't help either. Hahaha

I called my mortgage company and had to answer oddly specific security questions, including "on what date my latest payment was received".  I told her directly that the questions were absolutely inane and that I figure she must be pained having to follow such an ill-conceived script.  She seemed sympathetic... or she didn't know what "inane" meant... it could have gone either way.

Of course! Fastfood outlets have these huge white plastic barrels stamped "EMPTY CALORIES" full of a transparent powder that they ladle over the food. That's the difference.
I'm still trying to figure out how you coat a chicken in bacon. (I'll get it eventually. I once misguidedly cooked a "bacon burger dog" at home, but that was years and years ago.)

well it wasn't supposed to be coated in bacon, but they made so much of it that it was. i almost barfed when i got a whiff of it.

i understand assuming what you make at home has less calories if you're using less fat/lower fat subs, but fried chicken is fried chicken...

*Hugz* I feel your pain. I too am bound to the call center cubicle of doom.

An adult male speaking about little prehistoric baby dinosaurs, I was too busy laughing to pick up on the context.

My daughter and I were in the St. Petersburg library and she was getting a library card while I was waiting:

Librarian: And what is your email address?
Daughter: lost2literature@.....
Librarian: How do you spell "literature"?
