I would have piped in and said something to the mom. It drives me nuts when people say that.

A student once signed an email to me, his college English instructor, “Holla Back.”

I sh*t you not.

Riding on MARTA (Atlanta’s subway/train system), I heard two women complaining (loudly) about how they have to spend so much of their personal time reporting to their probation officers for their weekly drug tests.

I once got stuck in line behind a woman at the grocery store.  She and the clerk couldn’t figure out if she had a radish, a turnip, or a rutabaga.  Unless they solved this great mystery nothing could be rung up.  

I nearly strangled both of them.

@aliavenue:  Oh my gosh.

@CanAmBride:  That drives me insane! Good grief.

I think the dumbest one recently was at Taco Bell. Darling Husband and I stopped there to grab some quick dinner and a huge, loud group of teenagers sat behind us. They kept talking about “hooking up” and one of the quotes I remember, “Nah, I don’t wear dos (sp? referring to condoms), I juss tell her to abort that sh*t if it happens.” I was appalled. Literally appalled.

Mine occurred while demoing a 3D TV at work.

Guy: Wow…this is so cool! *looks at girlfriend* Can you imagine if EVERYTHING was in 3D, like in real life? That would be badass.

Girl: Oh my god, I can’t believe you are actually that stupid. *walks away*

Guy: What? What did I say? *chases after her*

@aliavenue:  When I taught college English, I instituted a policy that if a student didn’t at least make an attempt to have a greeting, capitalization/punctuation, and a signature (I’m supposed to guess by your e-mail? Really?), than I wouldn’t reply to it.

@aliavenue:  HAHAHAHA..ahh so good.

Um dumbest convo eh…I’ve heard my fair share. The most recent one was between two tweens discussing white and labor day. One of the girls that said you CANNOT wear white said “Just trust me, I am so into fashion and know these things.” It made me roll my eyes…she was wearing barely there shorts.

I just heard one – literally 5 minutes ago – between two of my male sixth grade students. They were talking about why men have the right to “do more things” and they agreed that it is because men do more stuff and work harder than women.

…I literally sit 2 feet away from them!

@Wonderstruck:  I’ve heard people say something similar to that while looking at the 3D tv’s at stores… makes me laugh every time!

I saw some girl at the mall once wearing shorts and uggs. Her friend told her she looked stupid and she said “it’s fashion, bitch.”
