Cell snips

Talking on the cellI don’t have a cellphone, but I love them. What I love is the snippets of private conversations that I hear while walking down the street. There’s just something fascinating about people having their private conversations in public.

Here are a few examples, all collected yesterday:

1. “So what are you saying, you just woke up this morning and decided you didn’t love me anymore?”

2. “The thing is, I don’t want that to happen to me. I don’t want him to turn to me in a year or so and say ‘I’ve changed my mind, you’re not what I want after all.’ Because then I’ll have invested two whole years of my life in him for nothing.”

3. “Look, you’re responsible for taking care of the kids. If you can’t find another babysitter, then I’m going by myself. If you want to come with me, find another babysitter. It’s not rocket science.”

    Hahaha…. This is so funny. I used to travel by train a lot and I (over)heard the most interesting private conversation. I think I could write a whole book about it :)
