Love the idea of a counsellor working for the council!

Iota, Yes, I laughed at that too!

A Modern Mother

Love it! We were on a very crowded train and everyone had tube faces...

Rosie Scribble

Susanna, it makes the journey so much easier when there are interesting conversations to secretly listen into. Eavesdropping is probably the word I should use!


I love eavesdropping, so wrong but makes a long journey infinitely more interesting.

Fabulous! Would make a good comedy sketch. x

Jo Beaufoix

Hee hee, so funny. I love listening in on conversations. You did well not to snort at that one.


I used to love listening in on the tube, its compulsory isnt ir?

Peggy@ Perfectly Happy Mum

That's very funny. Not so long I was on the train at rush hour for the first time in a couple of years and I heard some good ones too. I sometime miss that :)


Classic! .. and I want that dog... so cute! x

How did you keep a straight face? Were there any other eavesdroppers having an attack of the giggles too? I love the idea of the counsellor working for the council as well....


hahahahahahahah! Hah!

Fantastic! I love eavesdropping too. My favourite one was when I was sitting in a corner at the kids' youth group (for primary age children) waiting for them to finish, and one little girl was looking a bit upset. One of the leaders sat down with her sympathetically and asked her if she was ok.

Little Girl: I'm feeling a bit sad.

Leader: Oh dear. Why are you feeling a bit sad?

LG (tearfully): My rabbit's died.

L: Oh dear, I'm so sorry to hear that, it is very sad when our pets die isn't it?

LG nodded sadly.

L: What was your rabbit's name?

LG: Lucky.

Kudos to the leader for not giving in to the giggles that were clearly just behind her sympathetic face - as for me sitting behind them I had to bury my head in my knitting till I'd composed myself again!


That did make me chuckle!
