Lights, camera, eavesdrop!


I recently checked out Overheard in Vancouver after I read Rob’s earlier post.  Aside from discovering something new and hilarious to read, I was pleased/surprised to see that someone does actually listen when I speak:

EavesdropOverheard at the Safeway checkout in Kitsilano:

Checkout clerk: How’s it going?

Customer: Great, it’s a beautiful day!

Checkout clerk: It’s too hot, I’m glad I’m working.

Customer: Jeez in Vancouver everyone either complains that it’s too hot or that it’s raining.

I am that customer and I stand by my statement.   I’m almost glad I grew up in the cold, brown prairies because I know I’ll never take this city for granted!
