Overheard in Hoboken

What have you overheard in Hoboken lately?

Some of you may have seen some of the websites out there like “Overheard in NY” and I thought it might be interesting to start a post (with comments) about “Overheard in Hoboken”.

There will be a category to the left called “Overheard” which will take you to this particular post. Come back here often and contribute the silly things you’ve heard during your travels around Hoboken.

Just say where, describe the participants, and outline the dialogue. I’m sure many of you can contribute countless ridiculous items you’ve heard recently! Whether it be on the PATH train, in a bar, people on cell phones, there have to be plenty of humorous conversations every day!

For instance, here are some of the things I really overheard this past Tuesday just on a walk from downtown to uptown (and inspired me to write this post):


Location: In street on Bloomfield between 2nd and 3rd
Guy: “I just don’t want to see you anymore”
Girl (distraught): “So what are you saying??”

I heard some annnoying b*tch on her cell phone this morning on her way to the path calling up everyone in her phone book trying to figure out who paid the tab last night.

Highly annoying, she was talking so loud everyone on the street heard her. I’m sure all her friends wanted a phone call at 8am from this annoying ugly chick talking about a tab.

Ha! I’m not sure which one is funnier – the workout dudes or the stupid realtor.

Noone, there is nothing more annoying than those dumb biatches who have to talk loudly on the phone at 7:30 in the morning to everyone they know. They are especially bad on the bus. Seriously, who can have such an animated convo that early???!

This will be great fun. Maybe people will finally realize that ‘yes, when you talk loudly like that, other people are listening to your conversations”

yesterday on the walk home from the PATH, girl on cell:

Did you hear “Lisa” is pregnant with the loser. Yeah, I can’t even talk to her, he is such a loser. She’s asking me what she should do but she’s like 3 months.

I’ve got to start bringing some manner of recording device to the gym. the men’s locker room will be an absolute gold mine for this sort of thing.

spot on! wouldn’t it be great if publicly posting all the stupid comments we heard would convince people to shut the f*ck up, or at least not shout?
