OVERHEARD-Movie Theater

As we were exiting the movie UP:

Father to small boy, “What’s that in your hand?”

Boy to father, “Look! Squirrel!”

It’s only funny if you saw the movie. Then it’s really funny!

Check out the dog pack.

Mom, who works at Denny’s, treating two of her three adorable children to dinner and then Toys ‘R Us for a ten dollar game.

Waitress to mother, “Oh, I’ve never met Oldest Son. Who does he look like?”

Daughter pipes up, “He looks like TI. TI’s in locked up for a year and a day.”

Oh my.

Then the waitress asks where the other daughter is.

Mom, “She’s home with Grandpa. She wrote her entire name on the mini blinds with marker and lied about it. I told her if she was gonna lie – write somebody else’s name.”

After the waitress left, the son was telling his mother about his music teacher, “who’s an old lady with beautiful hair-like her.”

Pointing to me.

Getting my hair done when a little old lady walks in booming, “You told me to grow my hair out! Well, I grew it out and it looks like s__! I went all over Europe looking like s___!

Oh my.

Her stylist, completely not-pulsed, ” You’re fine. Sit yourself down and let me take that.”

“You be careful with that! I got it in Europe. It was over $9,000!”

Teensie, my stylist and I lock eyes in the mirror and get the giggles.

Her stylist, not missing a beat, “Nine THOUSAND dollars? Then I’ll sell it. Coffee or Coke?”

“What is it?”, I hiss, envisioning a rock-star Birkin in a color I have never seen before.

“Short, black leather jacket.” Teensie whispers.

I whip around and quickly back again.

“That’s no $9,000 jacket!”

Big brown eyes meeting mine in the mirror, “Maybe it’s a magic jacket.”

Very unladylike snorting of coffee.

LOL=little old ladies. God bless ’em.

Beautiful, well-dressed lady telling her friend about another tearoom that she had recently visited, “The food was good but it was just a pick-up place.”

Friend, “Why do you say that?”

Lady, “The parking lot was full of pick-up trucks.”

Oh, dear. Wrong on so many levels.

You can take your leashed pets into this big box pet store.

Little-Bit was stretched out in the child seat of the cart looking like a stuffed animal. She had nothing to do with the following:

Woman, speaking to a young lady on her hands and knees cleaning a nasty mess left by the woman’s dog:

“Dixie just gets so excited when she comes to see her friends, don’t you Dixie? Dixie, look what you made this poor girl do. Dixie just LOVES to shop here! Everyone’s so nice and y’all give her treats!”

Young woman cleaning up remains of said treat from the floor, thinking, “Yes. We just LOVE it when Dixie comes to visit and stuffs her face.”

The woman behind me was getting something complicated done to her hair. I could see them in the mirror but I could also hear them perfectly because I am an unabashed eavesdropper. The hairdresser was, apparently, unhappy with her boyfriend.

Client, “What you need is THE RULES.”

Stylist, “What’s the rules?”

Client, “If you knew what the rules were, you wouldn’t need the rules and you wouldn’t be in this mess in the first place!”

Stylist, “It don’t matter. He’s a cowboy. He wouldn’t know the rules if they bit him in the butt!”
