I MUST Dig the Graves Before the Puppy Comes to the House!greenspun.com : LUSENET : Hedgehog Talk : One Thread
I keep talking about these graves I need to dig for my movie in public, and I wonder what people think when they hear me. What is the strangest thing that you have ever overheard?

In a lift, in Australia, with my sister. A car park lift, going to a department store. A couple of 16/17 year olds, all over each other, tongues down throats, hands all over the shop. For some reason, the whole deal just made me want to laugh, but I controlled myself for the 6 floors.
Until, as the lift doors opened at the ground floor, the couple detaches, and as they're walking out, the very picture of a gormless 17 year old boy half turns to the girlie and says "So, what did the Dr. say about the rash?"
Forget being polite, I just howled.

Once at a rest area in CT, I overheard a young girl and boy discussing whether or not he should get a tattoo. The girl said in reply to his wondering "yeah, a tattoo is great, a lot of fun, but then you wake up one day and you're like 30!! then what do you do?". I never felt so old. My ex-boyfriend and I still e-mail each other and put in our subject line "30- then what?".

On the bus a few years ago while reaading a book just over heard two older (more than thirty) probably about late sixties women talking about their dogs and one was quite excited about how her little dog just keeps licking and licking for hours. It gave me a shiver and I wished I had missed that part of the conversation or got the whole thing. That little peice by itself was just disturbing.

This isn't so much strange as funny, I was at Giants stadium in the mens room (which was very crowded)and this father took his young son into the stall with him and while the rest of us attended to our own business this little voice from inside the stall said very loud and clear, "Wow, daddy, you got a big pee-pee." There was no clear response from the father.
