Have you ever been eating at a restraunt, and overheard something that made you choke?

Asked by Dutchess_III (45314points) June 16th, 2012

I had a mouthful of grits. Farmer dudes sittin’ across the aisle from me. One says to the other, “You know, he ain’t even legally the president! He was born in Kenya! His gramma even said he was…then two weeks later she died! Someone killed her to shut her up!” It was all I could do not to spit grits all over my husband!

I’ve heard the stories about Obama, of course, but I have NEVER heard anyone come out and repeat that stupid shite, and with such conviction to boot! O vey.

Not in a restaurant, but at a sporting event. A group of us went to a basketball game. During the middle of it, a young girl turned to her father and asked, “Dad, what is foreplay?”

Not that I know of. I eat at restaurants less than once in 2 years, and I would like to think that the amount of people who are that retarded is not that high where I live.
(I mean, 20% of americans believe that Obama was not born in the US… TWENTY PERCENT!)

It’s just insane @ragingloli!

I shared this with my daughter, and she told me she was at a restaurant once and some “old guy” and his wife were sitting behind them. She heard the old man say, “What the hell would I want with marijuana?! I’m a Methodist!”

@Dutchess_III No offence but I’m guessing Mississippi?

Two women got on the bus and sat behind me, and had obviously been deep in conversation. One said, ‘Yes. she had an organism and fell out of bed.’
Whatever was the rest of the conversation?

@ragingloli: Not sure you have that dialect quite right…

Not eating at a restaurant, but I live on the first floor of my building on a busy corner so I hear weird stuff all the time. The worst was this guy who paced outside my front windows while talking on his phone for about ten minutes. His half of the conversation went something like this:

“So I’m watching these dogs for my buddy, right, and he told me not to leave them alone because they’ll fight. But I have to go out, so I figure, whatever. And I get like two steps out the door and hear this really loud snarling and yelping. So I go out and when I come back like a half hour later, the one dog’s bitten the other on the neck and it’s lying there under the table moaning. What? No, I guess it died. But anyway…”

My boyfriend and I just sat there with our mouths hanging open. At first we thought that maybe someone was playing a practical joke on us. When we realized the guy was in earnest it became difficult not to go outside and pound the dude’s face. wtf is wrong with people?

Yes, really.

I remember spitting out water but I don’t remember the reason I did. Hmmm

A few months ago at a buffet restaurant. These two elderly ladies were walking past our table to fill plates. One said to the other “well, he didn’t know she had no fuzz down there until he washed it!”... I didn’t choke but I snorted and spit out my fried mushrooms. My partner just sat there looking dumbfounded.
