Conversations of Strangers
So while out in the public eye, I'm very leery of talking on my cell phone. I try to avoid any type of eaves droppers from hearing what I have to say. Though I may live my life this way, I know others do not. This past week I heard a bunch of interesting conversations had by willing strangers dishing out their dirt. Little did they know, who was listening. Seriously people, watch what you say in public. Stranger Danger #1 (female, early 30's in Hobby Lobby): Yes Honey, I know we don't have any money in our account. pause. Well I'll just put anything I get on my credit card. pause. That's why you have a job! My interpretation: Yes, I know we are broke but I'm going to make us even more broke by spending our non existing money on crafts at Hobby Lobby. And you have a job to support my bad habits. Ouch! I bet that took a bite out of that husband. Stranger Danger #2 (female, teenager in Kroger): Like, I know we aren't getting along, Stacy said what? I just don't understand. pause. And condoms, okay I'll get those too. But I really don't know if he likes me, I'm really not sure, How about some M&M's and chips to go along with it ::giggle:: and whipped cream. (she finally took a breath here) But what happens if James says he doesn't. . . I finally got out of that aisle. I don't have an interpretation here, but she sure did make my head hurt. I bet her mom is real proud of her don'tcha think? Yikes! So what sort of conversations have you heard lately?
