Overheard, oh well alright then, shamelessly eavesdropped...
Lock And Load never fails to be amazed at the details people give out in the most mundane public situations.
This morning at our local postal sorting depot, I joined the queue to claim a parcel. In front of me was a youth and an older man with two huge dogs. He wanted his parcel but had lost his red card. He then took several minutes to rearrange delivery 'not Friday, I got probation then'. The postman then offered to deliver it to him personally before 11am! Oh, and did I mention he took a moment to serenade the (mostly) black queue with Elvis' 'In The Ghetto'? Blimey.
I collected my parcel, because sensibly I arranged my probation appointment for earlier in the week. It was the Penguin Dictionary Of Psychology which has not arrived a moment too soon.
What have you overheard recently?
