A man sitting at a bus stop checked out a woman walking by and said "What a waste of meat!" and then he made a sound alluding to flatulence.
Not really over heard, but over-seen:
I saw three high school girls today with their hair styled like Elvira and they thought they looked fashionable and hot. I thought they were practicing for Halloween/beer ads. Is this a new trend?
I have a Google Voice account that I never use and have never given out the number to. A few weeks ago I got a wrong number on it, and they left this voice-mail:
Here's what Google Voice offered as the transcription (using spoiler tags so you can hear it before you read):
When I was in film school for two minutes, I overheard this conversation between a student and my school's most esteemed film professor...(the year that Crash won the Oscar for Best Picture)
Professor: "Crash was okay, I guess."
Student: "Well, what do you think should have won?"
Professor: "Oh, hands down, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants."
(insert student's laughter here)
Professor: "No, I'm not joking. I think it portrays the life of a teenage woman more accurately than anything I've ever seen."
And then I dropped out of film school.
One more. A few years ago when I was in Portland with a group of friends, a homeless guy came up to us and said, "Hey kids! I'm Fast Black and I'll kill a nigga for a sandwich."
Also, last week, my brother called me when he was walking down the street in Vancouver and told me that he witnessed a homeless man grab a living pigeon with ninja-like reflexes, stuff it in his coat, and run away.
ching chong ching chong?

I'm straying a little bit from the premise but the spirit is still there. Yesterday I was driving to work and was in Culver City on Venice Blvd., and stopped at a light. A lady in a maroon minivan (with that wood paneling on the sides like 90s style, you know?) stopped right next to me. The lady opened her door (I guess the window didn't work) and yelled directly to me, "HEY! YOU KNOW WHERE TO GET BIRTH CERTIFICATES?!"
All I could do was shake my head.
I was in an elevator today and this family walked in, just a mom and two little kids. One kid was in the corner making spaceship noises and I looked at him and laughed. He got angry and yelled "What are YOU looking at!"
I laughed some more and the mom told him to be respectful so the kid yelled at his mom "What? I DON'T LOVE HIM!"
