Chick: The waiter said I couldn't sit on his lap. Then he said not only couldn't I sit on his lap, that the people next to us complained that I was sitting on his lap! That's the stupidest thing I ever heard in my life, that you can't sit on someone's lap in a restaurant. And to blame the people next to us, who were lovely?

:D Reminds me of an overheard argument between two little boys, clearly brothers. The younger was baiting the older, who punched the younger on the arm. The younger whirled around and snarled, "You want a piece of me?"

Overheard in a NYC Pediatric Clinic:

Nurse practitioner asking little boy, "Now what do you do if there's an emergency at home?" (expecting him to answer dial 911)

Child: "Call 1-800-LAWYER"

I once overheard what looked like an NYU student ask "What's the name of the guy who said every one would be famous for 15 minutes?"

Ha ha ha.

Even if you made that up, it's still funny.

Overheard some wonderful relationship dialogue recently, e.g.:

"I gave him everything. Everything. And I didn't have nothing to give."

Hmm, nothing really to boast about then?

At Bar Toto, there is a conversation with a new server, 30-something, who has never eaten salmon. “Does it taste like fish?” Answers range from “It is fish,” to “Tastes just like chicken.” The owner, with a real helpful air, announces that it is farm-raised salmon. This is a red flag for her. “You mean it doesn’t occur in nature?”
