Artist on her art, said in the valley-girl, everything-sounds-like-a-question inflection:

"It's art because, like, I have a message I want to represent..."

Overheard, "Dude I don't even play Pokemon that often" while waiting for a puffy taco once.

In the same voice "it's like everyone needs to veg-out once in a while, you know"

And "he thinks I should keep working after we're married and our pastor supported him. Like, until we have kids. I'm like, why should I get married then?"

50ish female co-worker with heavy southern drawl to some unseen and unheard colleague, as heard in my office (despite her sitting in a cubicle about 30 feet away).

"For realzies, do you want my help or not?"

Saying "realzies" alone should get a person fired (if not executed), but being a middle-aged woman and saying it in a heavy drawl is just worse. It really is. It sounded more like:

Fer ree-yul-zees, d'yuh wount mah help'er nowought?

I'm sure I'll hear some interesting things while in line to vote in the primaries after work.

"...was farting so hard that his butt cheeks were flapping thunderously..."

Overheard on a metro bus (or perhaps in my imagination).

Onetime on campus back in the day, I was walking through the courtyard and there was one of those end is near preachers standing out on a box preaching to everybody, there were probably 30 people gathered around giving him hell basically.  So he's telling everybody to repent for their sins, etc, etc. and as I'm walking away, just before the door closes to the building I'm going into I hear behind me him loudly yelling back at somebody arguing with him 'I'm not saying ALL College girls are whores....."

I was at a marketplace, and a band was playing off in the back. "Sorry I'm being so frickin' moody right now," the singer said to the audience.

OMG...some time in 2007 I was doing some SAT tutoring. My student's family had two homes: one in the suburbs near here and a summer home in Florida. Her mom was spending a few days in their Florida home at the time.

Anyway, I get to her house, and her dad lets me in. My student is on the phone when I get there, and I hear her say this:

"...so I told the cop, 'You can't cuff me unless you have a warrant!'...oh, the tutor's here, gotta go. Love you, mom!"

I....didn't ask.
