Overheard – 8th September

Clangers overheard and snippets spotted by readers of ‘The Steeple Times’

 

How to Spend It

Prior to RM Auctions’ Battersea sale, an American woman conversed with the dealers advising her on the £1 million car she wished to purchase. She curtly told one: “I don’t spend money, I make money. Yes, I spend money on houses and handbags [she had a red Birkin] but I don’t really spend… But you watch when I do and you’re going to watch that this evening”.

 

Snapping a Meal

At the same auction, another attendee, a stocky Yorkshireman, spoke with a friend. He was overheard giving his thoughts on dining in London and observed: “We went to a fancy Japanese restaurant the night before last. The brain dead twats we were with photographed every bloody dish”.

 

Anna and Anya

In a bar in Chelsea, two women sat discussing fashion whilst leafing through copies of Vogue. One asked: “Anna Hindmarsh, is that the name of that acid tongued writer?” The other replied: “No, I think you’re on about Anna Wintour”. The first laughed and responded: “Same thing. Both up their own sorry arses”.

 

Blindness and burkas

On the 137 bus on Sloane Street a child pointed out the window at an Arab woman in a burka in a wheelchair. The boy asked his mother: “Is that woman blind?” The mother answered: “No she’s sick and they’re just covering her up”.

      • Rod, I presume you are the kind to tolerate neither sense or nonsense from anyone anywhere. A textbook exampke of the inverse relationship between exclamation points used and the validity of the statement.

        Perhaps, as it were, you should Rod off.
