Years ago, on the bus, I saw a teenaged girl hand her friend a baggie of Saltines and slices of cheddar. The friend ate the snack in silence, then said, "Yeah, it's weird. My father doesn't believe in the power of cheese."

I don't know that it exactly counts as overheard but one night, when my daughter was about 10 years old, I tiptoed into her bedroom while she was asleep to put some laundry away. She suddenly sat up in bed, stared at me with wide-open eyes, and hissed, "The pigs don't think it's funny on the moon." Then she lay back down as though nothing had happened.

Keep that in mind the next time you are planning to send some poor pigs to the moon - they don't think it is funny up there. You have been warned!

1: "Come on! You can do something good for someone who needs it"
2: "Im telling you I don't have the money to donate!"
1: "Wha- what are you talking about? It's free. The only money your spending is on gas."
2: "Well if they aren't getting money for it than what the hell do the get out of it?"
1: "... You're kidding right?"
2: *Rude shrugging motion*
1: "Blood. They're getting the blood out of it. That's why its called a BLOOD DONATION "
2: "I seriously doubt blood pays for the clinic"
1: "No WE pay for the clinic "
2: "so it DOES cost money!"
1: "NO! Have you never heard of taxes??"
2: "I don't pay taxes."
1: "WE HAVE BEEN OVER THIS!! TAXES COME FROM YOUR PAYCHECK. THATS WHY YOU GET A TAX RETURN! ITS NOT JUST FREE MONEY ONCE A YEAR!"
2: "WELL IF THEY'RE GIVING IT BACK THEN HOWS IT GOING TO THE CLINIC?! HUH ANSWER ME THAT!"
1: *Frustrated groan*

I was in line at the 99 Cent Only Store. The guy in front of me noticed they had pregnancy tests. He asks his girlfriend, "Say, love, do you want one of the 99 cent store pregnancy tests." She replied, "Well, love, I might need one if you're buying those 99 cent store condoms." (They actually called each other "love," even though I live in the US where nobody does that.)

I’m sure everyone knows those “demonic whispers,” tracks they play in probably every horror movie, right? I was watching a foreign horror movie, and the whisper track came on. I thought I heard something strange, so I rewound it ans sure enough, one of the whispering “demons” clearly (but whispering), “Monkey’s uncle.”

Visiting a National Trust house - wandering around the rooms - there’s a little girl with her parents and in every room she asked “did somebody die in here?” 😂. The last comment I heard was from her mum who said to her “ You’re obsessed. No one died here!” 😂

My best guess would be that in every house old enough to be of interest for the National Trust somebody died somewhen in the past. Surely not in every room, but in the house as a whole. Maybe someone told them earlier in another house that some famous person died there and the little girl remembered that? Either that or she is seeing the dead people and wondering what they are doing there...

I walked by the living room as my dad was watching a baseball game. He kept muttering, "We're not having cheetos tomorrow. We're not having cheetos tomorrow!"

I don't know why he was acting so strange, but he was right--we did not eat any cheetos the next day.

Now I’m curious to know how far up they really go. My guess is thigh high with garters. That would make her really old. Or French.

I was at band camp, and I overheard parts of a conversation some of my classmates are having. Apparently, one of them had a brother pass away, but it wasn't a big deal to them anymore. Then, a few seconds later I hear "Nah, cuz he just got aidropped into God's living room." I had to pretend I didn't hear anything, but it was so funny and caught me of guard.

At the height of Rick and Morty's popularity, I was doing an internship in an open office space and overhead one end of a phone call. I'm glad I wrote it down at the time!
"I spoke to a gentleman named Rick yesterday - he was supposed to send me an email... If you could recite his last name... Yes, he was supposed to send me an email with his contact information... Yes, he mentioned something along the lines of... Yes, I enjoyed speaking with him... Yes, he did, he did... It was something like 5.99... Maybe it's a case, maybe it isn't... Yes, I'm on my computer right now."
And later
"Yes, my wife wants me to get a whole new office. I think I had too much exposure... You know, 'need your name address, date of birth, social security number...'
... Thanks Jay."
I sometimes still think about some poor dude getting scammed by Rick Sanchez

I was on an airplane going to *somewhere* and the family in front of us… usually I would be annoyed but their situation was hilarious! One of the kids broke their headphones and was upset because they wanted to watch whatever 4year olds watch these days, and that was a big thing. Skip to towards the end of the flight, they had to stop at Chicago to go on another flight and then apparently the flight got canceled? I still sometimes find myself wondering if they made it to where they were going in time.
