One time, I was lining up for class when a boy randomly shouted, “I’m a proud Christian woman!” I didn’t hear the rest of the conversation, but I wish I had! It was so random and strange, everyone looked at him.

#1

I obviously didn’t hear the whole thing but I was at dinner about a year ago with my family. There was a couple sitting at the next table over talking about their child. They were trying to come up with a plan to make the kid listen to them, and have better behavior, and the woman said something along the lines of, “Harold, we’re obviously not raising him right if he wants to sleep in the dumpster.”

My mom was not the most kind woman but my dad loved her and treated her like the queen she thought she was for more than 54 years. She had been treating everyone badly for a couple of days. I was getting ready to knock on their closed bedroom door. I heard the tone in which my dad was talking to my mom, just a bit lower and slower than normal which stopped me from knocking. My dad had never raised his voice or was abusive to her in any way. I heard him tell her that she was being a World Class Bitch to everyone and she needed to knock it off. I was then expecting her to lose her s**t as she did over anything she perceived as a slight. No blow up. Nothing. After a couple of minutes of silence she told him she was sorry and I was stunned. I ended up not knocking on the door and walked away with the biggest grin on my face. My dad rocked that day!!!! I might add I was in my forties and visiting when this happened.

I have seen this behavior before...my Grandma could be a little...imposing and my grandpa was just the opposite but every once in a while he would look at her and just calmly say "(Grandma's name) shut up." And she would!

Took a walk around the harbour, watched a young couple kneeling over a tiny RC boat, with tweezers and handkerchiefs aside. Then he said with disbelief "You don't really want to fix that leak with my gummy bears, do you?"
A few minutes later I saw the boat jumping in the waves and dodging the ducks, so apparently she did.

Well of course, gummy bears are the most sustainable material to fix a leak.

Was hiking and heard this woman saying that her hair was very scrappy and mean. She looked like she was going to cry. Then her friend said that it looked like very nice and ecstatic hair. Weirdest part, the first woman opened her purse, pulled out a stick of butter, and took a large bite.

Ok, this is not exactly weird, but it's hilarious and makes me laugh every time.
This happened in microbiology class between our professor and a student, let's call him John.

So the professor asks
"Where can you find a Staphylococcus?"
*looks around in the clas* "John?"

John who was not paying attention to her and was completely absent-minded answers in a questional tone "In the city centre..."

Professor holds herself from laughing and asks on "So you will walk into a shop and order one?"
John snapped back to reality and everyone was laughing, the professor too.

Two boomers at a Gilbert, AZ coffee house talking about how one was a neighbor of Amanda Blake (Miss Kitty from Gunsmoke, I think she lived in Scottsdale or Phoenix) in the 1960s. He thought her dog was making a weird noise so he looked over the fence. He was greeted by the big ole paws and face of a young African lion.

We live in a town that's pretty crowded and shady, and one night I woke up to what sounded like really angry shouting. I went to my window, expecting something scary, and heard:

So I was in my favorite pancake house. The lady behind me let’s call her Karen, came into the doors looking for a specific person. She sat down with a older man and basically started yelling because the man was hard of hearing. She said,” John I was thinkin’ if my son keeps killin the birds out in the yard, I might just have to lock him in the stupid dog’s cage for another week!!” At this point me and my family knew it was time to leave.

!!! Killing small animals is one of the first signs of a serial killer, but with mom locking him in the dog cage I don't think the kid's to blame. He needs therapy asap before he becomes the next Dahmer!

Another one that I have was I was on the Subway, and this guy was talking loudly about restaurant experiences. He said, “One time, I got a fake nail in my McDonald’s fries, but this other time I was on a date at Outback Steakhouse, and this lady behind us just died! Never been to Outback since.” And neither have I.

I have 2, both happened while I was in high school.

1) I was in line in the cafeteria and I heard a girl tell her friend, "This stuff tastes like purple!" I didn't know that purple has a taste, but apparently it does.

2) I heard these two girls yelling at each other and then one said, "You wanna go right now?! Let's go right now! Right now! 3 O'clock after school!"

This did not happen to me, but a friend of mine. He was on a long-distance bus, almost an hour in. Right behind him, there were two young lads, nothing out of the ordinary. One of them in a super sweet cartoonish voice asked the other:
- Mommy, may I sing?
"Mommy", being the other lad, answered softly:
- Sing my baby bear, sing.
And he proceeded to silently and softly sing "oooh, ooh, oooo-oooh" imitating a cute tiny bear for an hour, until my friend got off the bus.

Was in line to return some stuff at Tar-jay one day when the woman in front of me was returning some bad cucumbers. The woman had to have been the most straight laced person I've ever seen and she was upset at the horrible taste of these cucumbers. She claimed that two of them were even still somewhat covered in mud. Well as her return was being processed, a girl of about 12-ish walked up looking SUPER sheepish at the site of those cucumbers. That's right little one... I know what you did.

I heard these two conversations on the same day in two very different shops. In the first shop I heard this young lad loudly say "Let's get out of here we've spent a (expletive) fortune". This was in Poundland! Right next to this shop is one of the more expensive supermarkets, Waitrose. An extremely posh women said to her friend "We were doing so well with Sherry glasses and then they all just seemed to break". I enjoyed the contrast.

I am half Greek/half Brit so I can understand both languages.
I was riding a London bus and there were three people bashing a colleague in Greek, thinking that no one would understand what they were talking about.
They said a few bad things, nothing to write home about, until one of them looks the other two and says "and you know that he is a coprophiliac, right"?
I tried so hard to not burst out laughing.
