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.

i don't have anything specific to add, but i LOVE eavesdropping. people are so rediculous sometimes.

I was like, hot dogs are healthy if you DON'T eat the bun?  That's the only part you should be eating!  What an asinine question.

some girls at work were talking about Farrah Fawcett dying.  One girl asked how she died, the other said from anal cancer, and the other said, "probably from too much anal sex"

I always thought it would be cool to have a main character in a movie walk past people and hear a snipet of conversation.  It wouldn't be a subplot or addressed in any way, it would just happen.

Could you call *that* overheard an asinine remark?

I love when people are yelling into their cellphones on the bus or the street and don't remember everyone can hear them. Like the other day I heard a guy:
"Don't start with me, man, don't even go there, because you rip-off the company even more than I do!"

Hmmmm.

I love walking by people who are talking as I am on Campus or just on the streets and hearing snippets of conversations. You hear the oddest things. And Especially because you only hear the end or the beginning or even the middle you have no context. It is great! I have heard some strange and amazing things.

My favorite one was as I was on Campus one day and walking past two people talking and all I heard was "and then you spew liquid from every orfice and die..."  ??? I had fun imagining the beginning of that conversation. lol

i hear a lot of random shit riding the bus to campus with undergrads. esp after a party weekend. oye.

my favorite is when they complain about profs. i like to try to gather information about how to improve things (so i like to think) but most of the time it is them being stupid.

Overheard a co-worker, "Yeah, I'm not worried about getting layed off, or even fired!  I mean, I'm a 55.B (a medical problem hiring status) so I can pretty much do what I want.  I don't have to do shit.  *gloat*"

Made me feel good about being busy.  :P

One time at school this couple was arguing outside (right in an open, populated area of campus)....they were annnnnngry:

Boy: I don't need you for everything!  There's lots of things I can do on my own!
Girl:  Like what!!!!
Boy:......like, take a shit!
Girl: *storms away*

Not even kidding.  I was embarrassed for them but I had to laugh.  Out loud.  Loudly.

I'll have to start remembering the things I hear! I like the Ashley and Stephanie name choice. NO OFFENSE.

Yeah, I just went for your typical white girl names.  No offense to the Ashleys or Stephanies.

Haha. I lived right above a small street where some how couples LOVED to have fights in the wee hours of the morning.

I was several times awakened by couples shouting at each other.

My favorite one ended:
Guy, shirtless, banjo in hand: "Well if you want me, you can come and get me!"
Guy stomps off.
Girl, earnestly: "Come and get you where?"
Girl, loudly and pleadingly: "Come and get you where!? You didn´t tell me where to get you!"
Guy continues to walk off and Girl stares after him highly confused and upset.

I watched the whole fight through my bedroom window after I was awakened at 3am. Good times.

I like it when people overhear the wrong parts of MY conversations.
For example:
I'm walking home from a bar with a friend, and we are complaining about an obnoxious dancer. The following exchange ensues:

Friend: "That guy was such a creep! He was rubbing his ass on my thigh!"
Me: "Dude, he was rubbing his ass on my ASS!"
Random person walking by: "Oh yeah? Was he really, now?"

this is old, but way back when I was in college, I was sitting in the dining hall eating and eavesdropping on the girls across the table. One was  telling her friend how some guy called her and pleaded to see her again, and how she was so harsh she made him cry. She obviously relished this. "He finally hung up and I just thought, "Bye-bye, Bozo." Her friend was cheerleading and telling her how cool she was. And I'm sitting there cheering for Bozo, who had a lucky escape from the clutches of this witch in training.

DUDE. When I worked at Trader Joe's cashiering, there were always some weird cell phone conversations to overhear. People stay on their phones while waiting in line and then hang up right before getting checked out (or they stay on the phone the whole way  >:( ) and they act like the other customers don't hear (which might be true; a lot of customers are busy doing their own things, yelling at their kids for picking up random things, etc), and they act like I, the cashier 2 feet away from them, won't hear/isn't paying attention. Well this ONE time...

middle-aged lady on phone:
"Yeah, well, I went to the, you know doctor yesterday"
"Well, not a whole lot, but I was kind of uncomfortable"
"Because I was upset"
"It gets dry when I get upset"
"Haha, I know, it's weird"
"Anyway, she said it looked fine"
"Yeah, no more tests for now"
"Oh hey, can I get double paper?"
me: "Um, oh, sure."
And the dude behind her in line was like D: jaw dropped and all the whole time. Seriously, save those kinds of discussions for home! (I'd say save arguments for home too, but sometimes it's hard to avoid. At least harder to avoid than voluntarily discussing your doctor appointment) I went home that day with a piece of new, unwanted knowledge: some women get vaginal dryness when they're upset. GAH.

The greatest part was she thought she was keeping it on the DL by saying you know and it. Maybe next time have a code name for your vagina, like Virginia? Yeah?
