I'm assuming she thoroughly enjoyed Snakes On A Plane. [04 Mar 2008|02:40am]

I'm breaking a 43-week non-posting streak to tell this hilarious story, which may not even translate in print.

Two middle-aged black women are looking at the DVD for the Tom Hanks movie, The Terminal at Best Buy. One of them sassily, but without irony, says to the other, "I remember that movie. He was stuck in that terminal."

Young Love. Old Eavesdropper. [03 Mar 2007|11:25pm]

Tonight I was getting some food, and in line behind me were a boy and girl, whom I would guess were no more than twelve or thirteen years old. Middle school aged.
The girl said to the boy, "Hey, remember the first time we went out? I hardly ate anything at all."
The boy said, "I did. I stuffed my face."
The girl: "Yeah, you did. But..."
They sounded so comfortable with one another as they reminisced about the good old days. How long have they been going out?

I felt incredibly old.

At Target this Friday evening......

Picture a gray haired, caucasion, later middled aged female customer walking with a highscool aged target employee that looked like Ricki from "My So Called Life"

she says..."yep! and yesterday he got circumsized"

Not the best thing I've overheard recently, but here goes:

That muthafucka just killed 2..no, no....that muthafucka just killed 4 birds with one stone!

And in an unrelated story I am not saying that I saw this guy:

...but I saw somebody on my way home that had that same look on their face.

Nu Shooz [17 Jun 2005|12:07am]

After the Rufus Wainwright show at The Atlanta Botanical Gardern on Wednesday night (6/15/05), this group of three girls were in a hurry to catch the shuttle to take them back to Colony Square where their car was parked.
All three girls were running for the shuttle, when all of a sudden one of them stopped. Two of the girls left the third behind as she bent down and began to play with the strap on her lime green high-heeled shoes with a big plastic flower on the front.

Third girl: "Hey, wait! I'm taking these shoes off. There's no way I'm walking in them anymore!"
(Indistinguishable words from one of the other girls...)
Third girl: "No! They cost me $25 and they're not even cute! I'm taking them off."

Now, I'm not a girl, so I don't really know what this means. I find this statement confusing on several levels. Does that mean they are expensive and ugly or cheap and ugly? Is there a certain price that would make their lack of cuteness acceptable? And why did she buy them in the first place? Please explain it to me.

This story just reminded me that when I was a little kid and my Mom would take me to Payless Shoe Source, I would always be befuddled as to why they didn't just call the place Payless Shoe Store. I didn't know what "Source" meant, and the word never sounded right to me. There's still a part of me that wants to call the place Payless Shoe Store.

and today i dub thee... [10 Jun 2005|05:43pm]

this wasn't actually overheard, i was in this conversation, but it's still just WRONG

me:  so you know moran calls me ms. parks?
1st guy:  what, thats not even close to your name
me:  umm yeah my last name is newell, but hey he called you malacheck
1st guy:  i don't understand that, my name is malesik
me:  i thought it was hilarious
1st guy:  i don't think there is a ms. parks in our class
me:  i know, i think he just made it up and decided hey, if she answers i must have guessed right, but dude, mr. vilami over here...
2nd guy:  yeah man, my last name is villamil, what was he doing
1st guy:  drinking, i mean how else can you explain it
2nd guy:  there's no "i" at the end of my name, none
me:  there's no "p", "a", "r", "k", or "s" in mine, at least he was in the general vacinity, he just gave me a brand new name, and apparently I didn't notice till the middle of the semester.  how was he keeping any kind of roll going.  cause i thought you got counted absent when you didn't answer correctly
1st guy:  i guess you got 100 on that because he NEVER called Ms. Newell
me:  i guess so, but he called on ms. parks all of the damn time and she never answered a question, and he used to talk to me after class and he never mentioned that i didn't answer him, he's be like "hey ms. parks, blah blah dead hand, blah blah, defieasable trusts."  I liked him.
2nd guy:  yeah me too
1st guy:  yeah he was funny

Who says this anymore? [18 Apr 2005|04:32pm]

I think I have gone through a time warp. Below are the excerpts of 2 conversations overheard recently...in 2005, not 1985 or in 1992.

1. Over heard a girl say to her friend while walking down the street: "You don't understand. WE WENT TO BED TOGETHER!!!"

2. Mid-30's business men on a smoke break: "A sphincter says what?"

I do admit, I may have to start using "went to bed with" again.

Me: I think a lot just has.

Water Cooler Topics [27 Sep 2004|01:50pm]

These two plumber guys were fixing the water fountain outside the men's bathroom in our office. One of them was laying on his back, trying to get underneath the fountain, and was blocking the hallway. I politely excused myself as I stepped over him and his buddy was like "Hey Mike, you can't go and block the whole hallway. I'm gonna have to call Homeland Security on you. Have them take you away, man."
