Things overheard on a Monday morning…


Actual snippets of conversations heard by me, on a Monday morning between 2 of my colleagues as they spend the first 2 hours of their day (before heading out to break) recapping their weekends.  nteresting to see what makes these guys tick.

Read on…

On people losing weight;
“Imagine being 600 pounds, eh? Now he’s like 160… He is a walking testimonial.”
“Yes, that is true. He’s a star traveller…”

About a woman each one met;
“What about that woman, she was, like 57?”
“She had cold hands. Maybe she’s hypo-glycaemic?”
“She’s nice. Actually, I thought she was pretty cute.”
“Oh, I liked her car.”

General… stuff;
“People that eat McDonald’s get parasites ALL the time…
(from no vegetables).”

“…Makes your brain get a little bigger…”

“It’s only one part of your blood. Microscopic cellular…”
(not a real description of blood)

“Can I get the hair taken off my back? My backside?
(UGH!!! Too much information!!!)

“I’m just telling you the story of engineering… of education… we’re not even near it… It’s money…”

“It’s all inter-connected… Some of it is inter-connected… It’s way out there…”

Politics;
“Did you hear the one about Harper? Harper the defence guy? It’s all about energy fields and so on…”
(I think he meant Harper the Prime Minister of this country)

“Alien is not the name of a creature, it is the name for something foreign to your mind.”
(Believe it or not, this has to do with the assasination of JFK… Read on and you’ll see)

“JFK was killed because he wanted to stop the war. He could do that. He was going to tell the world that there was alien life. They didn’t want that to get out, so he was killed.”
(Errr…. Yeah… NOT)

“The Dali Lama’s are fighting all the Chinamen right now… Can’t freedom speak?!?”
(WTF?!?)

Darfur. That’s a problem over there. They are killing each other over economics. Took them 8 years to get people over there. Could have been stopped. It’s disgusting.
(Over economics, eh? Wonder which one… Macro or micro?)

“I had a muffin. A muffin, the other day. A little one… Sugar rush to my head. Sugar is bad for you. Sugar and homogenized milk.”
(OY VEY)

    I am dying to know who you sit beside, that is too funny. I do know the environment though, remember shaking my head many a day.

    Polgara – It’s not like I was trying to overhear it either – it was just there… and for a long time, like 2 hours. I must have spent the majority of that time with my head in my hands crying. LOL.

    Sarah – You know my work environment… What do you think. 😉

    I hope you overhear some of this on the subway and not all from the other side of the cubicle wall!
