I was listening in on what sounded like it was perhaps part of a first date among two 18-ish year olds. Their loud conversation annoyed me (”So…what are your favorite classes?”) until it turned entertaining:
Guy: So, what is your ideal guy?
Girl: Preferably someone who’s not a perv. Preferably someone with substance. Preferably someone with brain cells. Preferably someone cute.Filed under overheard | Comment (0)
I’ve been bringing my laptop and working at different cafes with free wi-fi these days. I’m currently at a Panera Bread, unintentionally eavesdropping on a conversation between two 20-something guys. They’ve been talking about girls the whole time. They are pretty clueless about girls! When the conversation turns juicy, they lower their voices, but they’re only a few feet away from me so I can hear it ALL, even if I try to tune out and stop paying attention!
It’s all quite amusing.Filed under overheard | Comment (1)
There was a little boy shopping with his panicked father, who was looking frantically for a Trader Joe’s staff member.
When he finally found one, he said, “Excuse me, but most of the meats here have a sell-by date of March 26.”
“But, Dad–” said the son, but the dad didn’t hear.
“Excuse me?” asked the confused staff member.
“Most of the meats here have a sell-by date of March 26.”
The staff member looked completely befuddled but adhered to “the customer is always right” adage, and seemingly attempted to placate him by examining the meats.
“See?” said the panicked dad, “March 26.”
His son finally said, “Dad, that’s a month away! It’s February!”
The dad looked really embarrassed. But, it was pretty amusing.Filed under Greater Boston (General), Humor, overheard | Comments (5)
Anorexic girl: I wish I had AIDS. I hear you lose a lot of weight that way.

That is one of the most sick, disgusting things I’ve seen on these “Overheard” blogs. Usually they’re very funny, but that’s just really, really sad.Filed under Blogs, overheard | Comments (2)
While waiting for the T, there was a guy walking around talking to himself. Suddenly, he declared: “Man, I need a beer!”
Then he fished around his pockets and pulled out a can of MUG root beer. “Oh, I found one,” he said, then offered it to a stranger. “Want one?”Filed under Greater Boston (General), MBTA, overheard | Comment (1)
