We‘ve all been taught that it‘s not polite to listen to somebody else‘s private conversations. But sometimes you just can‘t help it but overhear some of it passing by, riding a bus, lifting weights at the gym, or casually shopping. And what makes these funny conversations as amusing as they are is that they're completely out of context.

This Instagram account, Overheard LA, is dedicated to such overheard conversations happening in Los Angeles, California. Stating that “We all have ears,” the creators invite Angelinos to share some of the best pieces that they have ever overheard in their daily lives while living in the City of Angels. From weird questions and ubiquitous conversation topics - the Los Angeles population always has some funny things to say. We think it’s hilarious, and for the rest, you’ll have to scroll down and see for yourself!

It is, though. People have a certain base level of happiness we always return to no matter what kind of life changing happy or painful event we go through. So most of our lives, yeah, we'll be just ok.

I really hate these attempts at "conversation" when I'm checking out in the supermarket. I used to be a cashier, so I understand being polite and friendly like "how are you today?" Response: "fine!" - transaction over or, "did you find everything you need?" Yes. Conversation over. but to be asked, "how has your day been so far?" - I mean, really! What if I just found out my mother is dying? Or that my son needs brain surgery? Or that my subordinate is stealing money? Yes, these situations have occurred in my life. And I don't particularly feel like sharing them, or the reasons that they make me feel terrible - with a cashier, thank you!

that's why you lie and say fine and the conversation would then end. They're not asking the question because they actually want the answer so just provide the answer they expect and move on

Probably the one day the cashier plucks up the courage to show some 'personality', get's shot down, loses confidence, goes back into shell.

Cashier discretely turns around, hocks up a loogie, spits in coconuts water, turns back around and... "Here you go sir, your coconut water. Enjoy your day!"
