All I got is spit!

Aaah. Weinig zo vermakelijk als het stiekem afluisteren van een gesprek tussen twee onbekenden op restaurant of in de metro. Op de site “Overheard in New York” kan je urenlang grasduinen tussen pareltjes uit dat soort opgevangen conversaties. Hieronder alvast een paar hoogtepunten:

Grocery store employee to boy not letting automatic doors close: Hey kid, keep that door closed alright? There’s AC in here. Those doors are meant to be closed.
Boy’s mother: If doors were meant to be closed they would be walls.

12-year-old boy, yelling at friend: No. Humans will die out. We’re weak. Dinosaurs survived on rotten flesh. You got diarrhea last week from a Wendy’s.



McDonald’s employee to hobo on floor: Sir, we’re going to have to ask you to leave.
Hobo: Why?!
Employee: Because you shat on the floor.
Hobo: What?! Why the fuck would I do that? I didn’t do that!
Employee: We saw you do it!



Child: Moooom, I’m thirsty!
Mom: All I got is spit!
