Tip of the tongue for Week 21

Tuesday 31 May 2011, 4.53am HKT

Overheard or read for last week (Week 21, 23-29 May 2011). Delayed because of all the gigs The Naked Listener was going to.

“I work in accounting – no one ever asks me anything about it or makes any comments at all. It’s quite the conversation killer.”

Q. “Are you still writing?”

A. “Are you still breathing?”

” … it’s like they’re saying, ‘You’ve got YOUR system, and I’m not going to follow YOUR way of doing things – because I spent a lot of time on mine, so it’s got to be better than yours. Has to be, only logical‘.”

(Two ladies in their 50s and 60s, unhappy about the attitude of today’s educated, 5.50pm, 28 May, McDonald’s)
