Midwestern Eavesdropping - 7/26/07

I worked from home today, so I didn't listen to any CDs (just my Hair Band Friday station on Pandora). Anyway, here's Midwestern Eavesdropping. I pretty much carried it this week.

Fratty guy talking on cell phone: "We're at a bar. It's called Celona. Like the country."
--Chicago, Bar Celona, 3474 N. Clark
Eavesdropper: GMYH

Guy leaving bar, holding pack of cigarettes walk past group of people standing outside bar.
Guy (to group): "Do any of you guys want a pack of cigarettes? I only smoked two."
Girl in group: "No thanks. None of us smoke."
Another girl in group: "If I was homeless I would smoke them."
--Chicago, Sheffield & Oakdale
Eavesdropper: GMYH

Late 20s female to late 20s male: "So tell me what does a bricklayer do, lay bricks?"
--Chicago, Fiesta Mexicana
Eavesdropper: Trashton

Astonished twentysomething female to three males: "You've never been bit by a goose or water fowl?" (several seconds later) "You've never been bit by a duck?"
--Chicago, Tilli's, Halsted & Armitage
Eavesdropper: GMYH

Astonished twentysomething female to people she was dining with: "What, you've never made you're own pickles?"
--Chicago, TaTong, Lincoln & Wellington
Eavesdropper: GMYH

Young 20s male, walking through courthouse parking lot, talking on cell phone: "I have a license -- I have two" (pause) "Yeah, I have no idea how that happened."
--Bridgeview, IL, courthouse parking lot, 10220 S. 76th Ave.
Eavesdropper: GMYH

Not really eavesdropping, but pretty funny:
HUGE woman wearing a t-shirt that says: "I'm not the girl next door. I'm the bitch from down the block."
--Chicago, Target, Elston & Logan
Eavesdropper: GMYH

So that's it. I expect a better effort from the rest of you next week. When you overhear something hilarious, or even mildly funny, email it to, and I'll sure as shit include it in the next Midwestern Eavesdropping.
