Overheard downtown

"No, I'm mean it's cool that YOU'RE not Republican. Because you're black. But anyone who is white and liberal is stupid"
Overheard at lunch. Needless to say, the guy this was said to was NOT very pleased at this comment... You know, because it's nakedly racist.

Sidebar labels

I've just added category labels to all posts, plus a sidebar to allow you to find any posts on a given topic.

I'm a little disturbed that so far, the only categories with multiple entries are "crime" and "public sex."

Overheard at a hotel restaurant

"Your buns look and taste delicious. But they are yeasty. It would be nice to have some yeast-free bread for people watching their health."
I swear to the FSM that is a verbatim quote.

What have YOU overheard?

I only have the two ears, which means I can only overhear so much. That means I need YOU to overhear things for me.

If you hear something funny, poignant, stupid, strange or interesting somewhere in the SLC area, submit it!

You can Gmail me at greenishblu (no 'e') or send a Tweet to @overheardinSLC. Since I'm openly desperate for content, you'll almost certainly be featured here! Yay!

Overheard downtown

"That's bullshit. There's no country named after turkey."

Overheard on Main Street

"The guy just pulled his car right up to the entrance, walked through the door, took a stack of towels, walked out and sped off!"
