overheard

(in the interim between posts I'll just tell you some fun things I overheard recently...)


11.30pm, two guys sat in a doorway, drinking strong lager. I walk past and hear them talking about someone they know.
"She's got links to the mafia, her. Proper mafia. I'm telling you."

-----
 
Two girls, talking about their exam results:
"I mean, I got an A star and there was absolutely nothing exceptional about what I did."

In a coffee shop, there's a woman with purple hair, alone, with a pack of cards. A man sitting nearby has been watching her. When he gets up to leave, he says to her:
"You can't read the future - no one can - and I don't want you to read my future - you can't even read your own future!"
She smiles and says, "Actually I was just playing a game"
He's already walking away, he shouts behind him, "I can't hear you!"

------

Man on his phone, on a night out:
"It's not looking good. I mean, it's just not a good night if it starts with you accidentally hitting a female work colleague in the face."

These were great! I especially liked the one with the woman with purple hair who was playing cards. I agree with Anne. These could all be stories.

I love the fortune teller one, too. Brilliant observations as usual, Teresa!
