Overheard: 16th February

Clangers overheard by readers of ‘The Steeple Times’

 

The DC and The NC

In Pret South Kensington, an Irish pastor sat with a woman who described herself as “a Devoted Christian, a Divorced Christian… I’m a DC”. The pastor remarked: “Where does life experience trump truth? We don’t have the right to reshape what God says. I only care about what God says. Divorce is wrong”. The “DC” responded: “Well, I’m a Nouveau Christian then… I’m a NC”. The pastor retorted: “Are you a fan of Zsa Zsa Gabor then?”

 

Delicious

At the next table, Tom Read Wilson – who appeared on Saturday’s The Voice on BBC1 – sat drinking alkaline enhanced water. A man who recognised him came over and said: “Well done. You were brilliant”. Read Wilson thanked him and added: “It was all delicious”.

A champagne swilling drunk made clear her feelings on paedophiles at The Botanist

 

Barring a paedo

At The Botanist on Sloane Square an old drunk champagne swiller sat at the bar. She turned to the shabby looking man next to her and randomly announced: “I hate Bangkok”. After he replied: “It’s wonderful actually”, she answered: “It’s full of paedophiles”. He gasped, shook his and remarked: “That’s not my experience”. As he got up to leave, she finished: “You actually look like one”. After he walked out she turned to another customer and concluded: “I rest my case”.
