    Overheard Around the World

    In the spirit of Overheard in New York, post any interesting or funny conversations you caught or eavesdropped on during the course of your day.

    Mine today, heard while passing a(n independent) coffee cart:

    Customer: "...so I went into Starbucks the other day and ordered a flat white..."

    Coffee guy immediately stops the machine. Looooooong pause.

    Coffee guy: "Never go into Starbucks unless you're in another country."

    "This eighteen year old guy lost his virginity to a stripper, and what made me angry was the fact it wasn't his party"

    And that was just over breakfast

    Girl 1 : "Are there any emo's in bunbury?"
    Girl 2 : "Oh ahh yeah there are a few."

    Index: Bunbury is a small city south of perth where I grew up.

    Tbh, I cracked up when I heard this, but on reflection you probably had to be there.

    Two of your trademark Sydney weirdos provided some entertainment on the bus today.

    A loud, bogan woman was forced to move from her seat by the arrival of a woman with a pram, so she went across to the other side of the bus to sit with a gaunt, unshaven man who was apparently her boyfriend, and who was sitting in front of me. He put his feet up on the seat next to him and wouldn't let her sit down.

    When she asked "what are you doing?", he replied in a loud stage whisper, inexplicably, "you have to live for the here and now". They then proceeded to have an argument about what the hell it was he meant and why she couldn't sit down, before she went back to the other side of the bus and had a less amusing conversation with the pram woman about her baby.

    Been to Bunbury. Had a hot dog at a truck stop sort of thing while taking the bus from Albany to Perth. Didn't notice any emos, though.

    Last Thursday as I was walking down to the shop at work to buy my lunch I walked past this dude who was talking to this young girl (18 no more) and her mother (just an assumption) who had her left elbow in a sling, and said dude was talking about which nightclubs he had visited and what he thought of them. IIRC I remember him mentioning a strip club called "Hollywood Show Girls", and when said mother asked if he had been into a another club called "The Bedroom", he said he had mentioned he had been in it a few times. "The Bedroom" isn't a strip club, just a nightclub, although the girls that work there apparently walk around in lingerie, not that I have been there (and I'm serious as well).
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...
