While eavesdropping is considered an unethical or bad habit, one can not be blamed for overhearing something by mistake. Right? Many of you, whether commuting via public transport or sitting in a common canteen, might have overheard things, which may or may not interest you. Sometimes these little snippets from other people’s lives can leave you quite stunned.
Dwelling on the same concept, many people on social media shared bizarre things that they had overheard. Using the hashtag #OverheardAtLunchBreak, some lines that people have tweeted out are quite relatable. From “Did you hear he’s getting a raise, he does nothing but talks on the phone all day,” to “Guess who got divorced in Accounting? Yea, that hot guy!” and “I’d quit this job if it wasn’t for all the sleep I get here,” were some of the enlightening conversations that were overheard.
While most of the tweets were hilarious, some overheard conversations turned out to be unlucky and sad too. One of them even wrote how he ended up overhearing spoilers for some shows he was looking to watch, and another user tweeted that she “ate alone, hence overheard nothing”. Wondering what are the other things that were shared by people? Check them out here:
