Daily Prompt: Hear No Evil

Tell us about a conversation you couldn’t help but overhear and wish you hadn’t.


Do you know those people who are permanently attached to their cell phones as they walk through the grocery store chatting away with their “friends” about all their other “friends” and you hear about everyone’s dirty laundry before you are done picking up the milk and bread that you ran in for?  Yeah, those people.  What is with them?  Is their conversation so important that they can’t call the person back after they are done with their errands?  And then they look at the cashier like the cashier is dumb or something when they are only doing their jobs by asking them basic questions.

I seriously dislike those people.  And then they get behind the wheel and attempt to drive while drinking their hot coffee and changing the radio station and talking on the phone all at the same time and they are confused when you flick them off because they swerved into your lane and almost killed you and your entire family.

Seriously people, absolutely no phone call is worth all that.  Your private conversations should remain private and they can wait until you are not in a grocery store (or any other public place) and are safely at home in a non-moving vehicle.  And, seriously, don’t even do it when you are not the driver.  It is rude not only to the people around you but to the person you are talking to as well.  Oh, and please, please, please don’t EVER answer your phone while you are in the restroom.  There is absolutely nothing more disgusting than hearing someone flush the toilet.


I am a 43-year-old, single mom of 19-year-old boy/girl twins living in an extremely small town in rural Texas. Currently, I am employed as a Site Supervisor for a prominent corporation that provides security officers for homes and businesses.
