For the most part I'm a pretty quiet person, speaking aloud as little as possible and minding my own business as much as I can. I expect nothing less from the rest of the world, but unfortunately the majority of the population doesn't subscribe to my credo. Sometimes there's just no way to avoid Overhearing Things In Public.
The following is 100% true.
I was walking though my local Target store yesterday, trying to find a watch battery. As I passed the Electronics Department, the clerk there pulled out her walkie-talkie and I overheard her say, "I need a clean up in the Electronics Department. Clean up in the Electronics Department, please. There's blood on the counter in the Electronics Department. Repeat, blood on the counter."
Jesus Christ! Now that's something you don't hear every day! What the hell's going on in that department? We're four months out from Black Friday. There's not supposed to be bloodshed until the day after Thanksgiving!
