Overheard Lines In San Francisco

I don't like to eavesdrop, but in the age of the cell phone, some people make it impossible not to. At any rate, this blog has some good ones...

My favorite line that I've overheard, was just a little after 9/11. When we bombing the caves and looking for certain nefarious character, I was on a bus late at night, and one drunk bum said to another...

"They say they can't find Bin Laden? Sh*t, they need to put child welfare on his ass. They've found me in three different states and hit me up for child support, they're bound to find him too!"

Here's my favorite overheard conversation, in an elevator: Two women are talking in hushed, concerned tones. One of them says, "yeah, she's wearing the bandage because she doesn't like the way her new tattoo turned out. It's the name of her cat." (At which point another passenger in the elevator, a guy who looked like a stockbroker, started laughing really hard.)

I thank you for not bringing up the more akward things that my vocal chords have brought upon people's ears.

You have to wonder, but my guess was that it wasn't lucidity on his part, so much as the alcohol clouding the fact that Child Welfare was probably tracking him by his Social Security Number.
