    In the supermarket, following a husband and wife:

    "... and then you wouldn't believe what Alice turned up wearing - you aren't listening! Why won't you make conversation?"

    "Well, if you want to discuss the political situation in Burma, I'm all ears."

    " it's like getting Tony Blair to smuggle ice cream into your freezer"

    Not exactly a conversation, but the people who live above us just had particularly energetic sex.

    Our front window is side-on to the path to their door. I'm going to give them a raised eyebrow and a knowing nod next time they walk past.

    Some drama student on the bus talking to some dude.

    Girl: "so it starts with a monologue from Bill Hicks, have you heard of him?"

    Guy: "No, who's that?"

    Girl: "I'm not totally sure but he's an American comedian... I think."

    Nothing like knowing your sources.

    I was on the train the other day sat adjacent to a family, when the mother came out with possibly the most middle class sentence I think I've ever heard in my life when she turned to her 7/8 year old daughter and said "Tabatha', I hope you're not getting hummus on the ipad".

    I heard another similar one in the supermarket when a kid, trying to be helpful, handed his mum some dried pasta. His mum snapped 'Jonathon, you know daddy will only eat fresh pasta - put it back!'.

    Passed a guy with his friend shouting up at a woman in a 1st floor flat begging to be let in. He had a 2L bottle of white lightning or something and clearly off his face.

    "Go on..let me in!"
    "No. Way. That's the last time I let you treat me like that. Now fuck off!"
    "But I was on my best behaviour last night! I only hit you twice..."

    Girl 2: Me too. Used 3 blankets last night, but I couldn't sleep coz I was having nightmares.
    Girl 1: Awwww, noooo...
    Girl 2: Yeah, we were playing with the ouija board but we didn't finish it so the spirits didn't leave. I was, like, no way I'm getting sleep tonight.
