Overheard in Crazytown: Same Weird Man Edition.

Written by sally @ 1:09 pm — Section: sally

Overheard in a Car I Was Riding In Today:

Woman: Who owns that building?
Weird Man: Well, I was looking at the tax rolls, and I don’t mean to be prejudiced,* but the owner had…well…a funny sounding name.
Me: (had been ignoring conversation, but now perks up and waits to hear what ethnic group is about to be slandered; predicts a Middle Eastern-sounding name)
Woman: Really?
Weird Man: Yes. It was an Italian name. Like Carducci or Carlucci.
Woman: Oh no!
Weird Man: Yep, the mob’s moving to town!
Me: (to self) OMG.

*If you say this, you might as well wear a t-shirt that says BTW I AM SO PREJUDICED.

Overheard in an Art Gallery Where Someone Has Given the Group I’m With a Tour:

Gallery owner: (has just finished giving detailed information on art, art-esque stuff, art techniques, art acquisitions, art cetera) Any questions?
Weird Man: So, what kind of floors are these?
