Awkward Conversations #1

I overhear, or am part of, so many of these conversations, that I've decided to record some of them here. Fuck off, it's my blog.

This was between two guys* at work:

Jim: So what are you up to tonight Joe?

Joe: I'm going over to my auntie's.

Jim: Oh right, is she making you your tea?

Joe: No, we're just going to have a bit of incest.

Jim: ...oh. Well, I'll see you tomorrow.

freshairlover blathered this crap:

That's great. I like this idea. Not the incest, erm, the one about putting conversations on here.

hdw blathered this crap:

I would always overhear some odd conversations when working at the hospital. I will pay closer attention on this upcoming trip - you always encounter nuts when you travel.

Another Nut

Cindy-Lou blathered this crap:

What's wrong with that?

Howard blathered this crap:

Let me see if Blogger will accept this comment this time.

We have indeed started a series together and didn't even realize it. Next thing you know, we'll be dressing alike.

I love the unfazed reaction of Jim at the end.

jali blathered this crap:

People go through the motions sometimes and just don't pay attention.

Kav blathered this crap:

Debbie: Cheers, I've no doubt there's plenty more where that came from.

hdw: I look forward to some good stories on your return...

cindy-lou: Nothing at all, ha. It was Jim's sharp exit that made me laugh (silently, to myself).

howard: I don't have the style or the funds to carry off the stuff you wear.

Oh, and Jim was fazed - he was in a state of shock. That's why he had to get away from Joe.

jali: That's how I spend most of my working day...
