Sometimes the most entertaining activity in life is people watching, OR, people listening. You will catch the most interesting conversations by chance or, for a real good time just put on a pair of headphones but leave the volume off.
Oh the things you'll learn about your fellow humans. Some may call that eavesdropping. I call it free theatre for the living.
Twitter recently took inventory of some of the best and oddest 'overheard' conversations. And the completely 'out there' moments may leave you in slight disbelief.
1- Homo, Homeo? Potato, Po-tot-oe? We get the gist.
just overheard a customer on the phone with his wife:— sailor jupiter (@niintendhoe) April 5, 2018
“yeah honey the pharmacist said we could give him half a teaspoon of benadryl, but i found this other allergy medicine it’s all natural, one of those uh, homo pathetic drugs”
2- Dinosaurs? Birds and the bees? Battle of the sexes? Whatever... as long as the information is correct.

*Overheard from the playground at the daycare across the street*— Brant Adams (@Brantadams46) April 5, 2018

Boy: “But I want to play with them!”
Girl: “But they’re mine! Don’t make me pee on you.”

Judging by the bloodcurdling scream that ensued...
