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.

Unless this idiot thinks "hiatus" means "uncontrolled spree." A lot of people use "big words" without actually knowing what they mean. I knew somebody who kept misuisng "moratorium." He thought it meant "ultimatim."

Like a Southern woman I met who said in my hearing, "I don't remember did I lose the tooth en-durin' the fight itself, or after." She meant "during", not "enduring."
So maybe they think you are ready, willing and en-able!

English speaking woman ranting to her friend about someone here who had pissed her off: "The dude is an evolutionary U-turn!!" I was not supposed to be eavesdropping so I had to start digging in my handbag in order to keep from laughing out loud.

lol! yg, I would have laughed. I know what you mean about not supposed to be eavesdropping though. But sometimes I really can't help but laugh when I hear things like that, or even just when someone says something in a funny voice. I think people do this to me all the time too because the way my mother and I talk to each other when we're in public gets a few chuckles. I'm definitely the boss.

I got caught laughing at a lady, it was the scenario and not her individually wearing a dust mask and making a big deal in duane reade. Well she call me out on it and it was all over for me, she started going on about how funny I think someone with allergies is. I got chew out and bursting out laughing all in between.

Well, apparently the Black Dahlia didn't either, which may be what got her killed...

Part of me wanted to run up to the car at the next light and ask if I could join them (for observational purposes only).

I'm sitting in a study area down the hall from one pf my professors' open door. He's talking about the class I'm in. "It's really interesting, and the discussions are great, but the amount of reading material I'm holding them responsible for is ridiculous." Well, at least he knows.

What's ridiculous is that he knows it, and continues to do it. Profs are like that here..."I know I'm being impossible, that's what makes me better than you." Chuh.

Guy holding forth to bored friend. Guy is obviously an ubervore, one of these people who "only" consume what they consider to be le top, le best, le most expensive...and look down their nose at everyone else, all the while feeling called upon to explain the difference between the slop you gulp from your trough and their exquisite edibles.

"It's a fantastic wine. (blah, blah, blah) It's red, of course, but such a dark red it's almost blue."

Excuse me? Blue?
Purple, yes certainly. A very dark crimson can be almost black in some lights. But Blue?

Backstory:  Vincent and I were at the local wildlife reserve, eating lunch by the duck pond.  A woman came over with her grandchildren and a bag of bread and, despite me pointing out the sign saying not to give bread to the ducks, proceeded to let the grandkids feed the ducks bread (that should be in the WRGMG thread, but oh well).  There were 2 baby ducks who are obviously older babies...they're pretty big, and still fluffy but getting some of their adult feathers.

Woman (to her grandson): Don't scare the baby ducks, they might fall in the water.
???
And later, to the grandson again: Don't give bread to the babies.  They don't eat bread yet, they eat their mother's milk.
:o

That's right everyone, ducks are mammals.
