Old man A to a random person walking by (not me) "Takes a long time to become a biggot like you"

Girl on cell phone: "Yeah sure we are friends...::pause:: Juuust Kidding, don't ever call me again, bye"

Man on cell phone:  "He makes a lot of money there because he is young, cute and twinkie"

no no Reese, the old man just said the first one.

another man, middle aged was on his cell phone and said the thing about the twinkie guy.

also right now, there are two people at a table right near me that appear to have met for the first time like an web date meet up thing.

Woman "Where did you go to school?"

Man "I went to school in a number of different places"

way to evade the question...

"Oh look, they included thier dog's resume"

Even dogs have resumes nowadays.

At a party, two drunk girls walked by me.

"Now what?"
"Let's go into that room there."
*pause*
"That's a mirror."

At Hardwick's Hardware store.

Some guy that sounds just like Bill Murray in Caddyshack into his cellphone: "Yeah... Tina's making a new kind of pesto tonight, so you... you know... you're welcome over to dinner if you want."

coworker 1:  And what the Republicans wanna ask the Democrats is, "Which place is safer:  Los Angeles or Iraq?"
coworker 2:  AHAHAHAHA!  RIGHT?!
coworker 1:  The Democrats just don't get it!  Sure, 2 soldiers died in Baghdad over the weekend, but 12 people got shot in Los Angeles!  We went in and made Iraq a safer place to be!
coworker 2:  Yep.
coworker 1:  I know I'd rather be in Iraq than south central LA!



Comparing the entire country of Iraq with a single city in America?  What?  Seriously -- what?  They were not kidding.  I would've listened further, but for some reason, all of my blood and internal organs started pouring out of my eyes and ears after that last sentence, and I died.  Which means I just brought you this overheard conversation from BEYOND THE GRAVE.

(ETA:  It seems Sadly, No! covered this phenomenon yesterday.. CW1 probably got his talking point from bloody NewsMax..)

"can you just file it, and not put it on the database?"
"why would i do that?"
"well, so you've got it on record."
"but not on the database?"
"yes"
"so the database and the file don't match?"
"...but we already reported that stuff anyway."
"but they have to match."
"but we already reported it."
"so we can put it on then."
"no, we can't put it on the database."
"so what do you want me to do?"
"file it."
"and put it on the database."
"no. just file it."
"but.."

i would type out the rest of this exchange, but it is still happening, and i can't be bothered.

Quote from: "RoyBiggins"
A friend of mine was in a bathroom stall when two guys walked in, and one was telling a story that was just wrapping up.  He said "So, then I said

"Why don't you put the flowers back on the table."

Then the two of them started laughing like it was the funniest thing either of them had ever heard.  We really want to know what they had said before.


myself and a friend once spent about 6 months of our lives walking into rooms in school and elsewhere and saying, as we crossed the threshold and people turned to look at us, "and i said 'no! that's my wife!'" and laughing hilariously.

just wanted to thank you for reminding me of those happy days, really. but also for reminding me that when it comes down to it i am nothing more than another of those guys.

alistarr, which person in the conversation is correct? the person arguing for putting whatever-it-is on the database seems to have logic behind them, but i'm thinking that this is the person you consider wrong.

you're dead right, andrew - the paper record and the database record must match exactly. in this case, the stubborn one is "right".

At Cafe I have been frequenting as of late:

Scene, exterior cafe, park benches.

The regulars cast: French woman, Pretentious SF resident (oh but arn't they all?), Sideshow Bob, Me.

Sideshow: *typing furiously on laptop of numbers as per usual* *click click* OH FUCK YOU!!! (his cigarette lighter won't work)

Yuppie guy in exercise gear: I hope it doesn't work

Sideshow: All at once jumps up take all his stuff furiously marches down street.

Me:  I look up, at this point this no longer becomes "overheard" because I get dragged into the converstion

French woman:  Looks at me, "He is crazy" (puts finger to her head and loops it)

Me: Nah, he's okay he comes here all the time, but he does tend to spew his malcontent with the world pretty loudly.

YG: Well, he was trying to light up and I have ASTHMA! So I said that.

French Woman: oh so YOU got him all worked up.

Me:  Well, maybe he could ask I suppose.

YG: going on and on about smoking and ASTHMA

Coming up on his right, YG does not know he is there, at this point I feel Sideshow knows we are talking about him, I don't know what to do I feel awkward, I bury my head back in my book, intently reading.

Sideshow:  *Really loudly* Well I don't feel I should be harassed by people like you! I am following the rules, I can't smoke in bars, or restaurants, I can't smoke inside so I have to be out here!  I pay taxes here too you know (then something about how no one worries about the death rates of AIDS).  

YG: But I have ASTHMA

Sideshow: continues smoking

Me: in my head (oh shit he's going to kill us all now)

My sympathies went to sideshow. Man with asthma seemed quite unaffected by the smoke its not like he broke out into a fit, AND it's open air dude.

Yeah, that sort of seemed to be all about:

Yuppie guy in exercise gear: OMG, EVERYONE LOOK AT ME!

Sideshow: All at once jumps up take all his stuff furiously marches down street.

Me: I look up, at this point this no longer becomes "overheard" because I get dragged into the converstion

French woman: Looks at me, "He is crazy" (puts finger to her head and loops it)

Me: Nah, he's okay he comes here all the time, but he does tend to spew his malcontent with the world pretty loudly.

YG: ME! ME! ME! ME!

French Woman: oh so YOU got him all worked up.

Me: Well, maybe he could ask I suppose.

YG: ME! ME! EVERYBODY! MEEEEEEEEE!

Coming up on his right, YG does not know he is there, at this point I feel Sideshow knows we are talking about him, I don't know what to do I feel awkward, I bury my head back in my book, intently reading.

I hate that dumb exercise guy now, I saw him again today. him in his "bike attire" you know like tight bike pants and bike helmet, bike gloves.  like he paid a fortune to get all the "right bike stuff" you know the type.  and then he starts telling everyone today about why they should drink wheatgrass. He goes on and on about the liver and its function and he threw out all these medical terms, I don't know maybe he's a doctor. but he's a JERK.

oh and other overheard.

"hey man, yeah, I'm as fly as I can be, making as much neeeews as I can make, yo"

I like that, making as much news as I can make. hahaha!

next time someone says "hey, what's up Mary?" i'm going to day "not much man, just making news in the fly girl gazette yo"

Although now that I've more or less quit smoking I really don't advocate it for anyone, I would start smoking just to piss him off.
