Very funny! Some of these will make you laugh out loud. Others will give you a quiet chuckle. However, you need to have a sense of humor and not be too uptight. You can read this in bits and pieces. As the title indicates, these are small snatches of conversation overheard in various places in New York from subways, restaurants, sidewalks, restrooms, classrooms, etc. People say the funniest things on the phone and to each other. It's a bit voyeuristic, but admit it, we all love to get a glimpse into other people's lives.
