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!

As Ryan Reynolds once tweeted: "People in LA are deathly afraid of gluten. I swear to god, you could rob a liquor store in this city with a bagel."

Celiac disease is nothing to be lauhged at. I have it so I know. It is a serious condition where body attacks on it self.

True, but the that's not the joke. The people cutting gluten for ill-advised vanity reasons have caused problems for those with Celiac.. those are the targets of the joke.

My mom is a genuine hypochondriac and she thinks she's allergic to gluten. Today she ate a philly cheese steak in a regular bun, later on she had some toast, lol. It's only when the condition is convenient for her haha. She drives me nuts when it comes to stuff like this!!

Almost a joke . UGH ! Gluten bad ! It is for celiac disease , but, watch the Web Med video to give the rest of us the truth.

I think the reason ppl joke is because so many people claim to have Celiacs with no tests and it's semi rare. I realize it makes it hard

My mother's boss loves to joke in his team's company(him, mom, their young third colleague and occasionally some of the architects, who are their customers). One of his favorite things to say while out for lunch is:" Look, they sent the poor mad men via post!". Their shipment office is right next to the madhouse o.0

so I guess you would find it funny for my 90 year old mom who has celiac disease to have to be rushed to the emergency room? I don't care if you were just joking, my mom almost died from accidently ingesting gluten and I find nothing funny about that.

It has nothing to do with celiac disease. It's like some people who think "oh no I ate a bruised part of an apple I'm gonna die take me to the hospital!!". In fact, some people just do a gluten-free diet even though they don't even have celiac disease..

It's actually not mocking, more like exaggerating. Coeliac disease is not an allergy. Allergies are dangerous in that they can escalate to life-threatening status really quickly. No one mocks allergies. If you have coeliac disease and you swallow gluten.. most times you get diarrhoea and a tummy ache, and that only a few hours after you eat it. It's less life-threatening than eating bad food, and no one calls an ambulance for that. He's just making a comment about the snowflakes, people who are like "OMG I ate a overripe bit of banana, call an ambulance quick" :) http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Coeliac-disease/Pages/Introduction.aspx
