I was walking down the street once when a white bloke in a very nice suit strode past me in the opposite direction. He was on the phone, gesticulating confidently with his other hand and making incredibly big expressions as he talked. About 70% of the volume of his side of the conversation was being projected to anywhere but his phone. I had my headphones in and was listening to Motörhead at the Required Motörhead Volume but nevertheles—in a true testament to the sheer importance of what he was regaling his interlocutor with—I overheard a few words as he passed me:

‘Yeah, tell me about it! She’d be running around like a legless chicken!’

Friends, let me tell you, the absolutely delightful ratio of brash confidence to blithe cluelessness perked me up far more than the double espresso failing to keep me alive that morning. And lest that sound overly snooty of me, rest assured: I have said equally stupid things out loud in public before. Multiple times. But instead of sharing them I’m gonna do a quick smoke bomb ‘look over there!’ and point at this Reddit thread that asked the question: ‘What’s the stupidest thing you’ve heard a person say in public?’ You can check out the full thread here but below are some highlights:
