Exactly what you think it’s going to be

Overheard In The Office

This is some hilarious stuff...some of these people should look around before they say stuff. Or stop talking on the cell phone in a restroom stall...we can hear you....the accounstics are excellent. Seriously, please.

    Heather, the original site http://www.overheardinnewyork.com/ is hilarious as well.

    Hmm, who knew? I miss the big city. I haven’t overheard anything interesting in Redmond lately. But if I do, I’ll post it here!

    Sometimes I get lucky on the train home. When my phone/ipod runs out of battery for music, I forget a book and can’t find a paper, an incredibly hilarious conversation that really shouldn’t be had on a mobile on a public train makes the trip a little more interesting. Of course if I have any of the other forms of mentioned entertainment it’s just annoying.

    I think my favourite was some girl telling her friend over the phone that she’s so embarrassed that she thinks she left her underwear at some guys place, she now gets funny looks from his family/friends and please don’t tell anyone because it’s so embarrassing. The secret is between her, her friend, and anyone sitting in the carraige that evening.

    Jessica – isn’t it funny how people on a phone seem to forget where they are. For a period of time, I took a commuter train into Chicago from the suburbs and some of the people on that train where outof their minds. There was a guy that frequently clipped his nails. He was on the upper level of the train with all the single seats and I imagined the nail clippings going flying down to the lower levels.

    On the train home, people could buy a beer for the trip which made for more potential nuttiness.

    OK, people also say crazy things when they are in dressing rooms. ANywhere that feels confined but isn’t sound-proof.
