Great overheard conversations of our time

"Have you remembered the Iceberg lettuce" the elderly man said to the lady who may, or may not have been his wife as he joined her and her trolley, just before me in the queue at the local supermarket.

Ok, it was Asda. I'm not afraid of advertising, this is not The BBC after all. Like you weren't aware.

"Oooh that reminds me, I need to take that book on The Titanic back to the library" she replied.

"Oh yes" he commented, whilst pinching the lettuce - unaware that the gentleman in the queue behind him was doing his best to refrain from peeing his person.
