Not sure if it is real or not because any random SOB can go on here and add stuff, but most of the things on Eavesdrop: Los Angeles seem ridiculous enough to me to be real. In any case it is entertaining and I got a chuckle.
And it reminds me of something that I witnessed in Burger King(the one on Grand and Cesar Chavez – is there any other?) a couple of years ago. So I am standing in line…and it seems unusually long for that time of day, so I look to the front and there is this lady ordering. She seems to be making a to do about something.
She asks the guy working there for a Whopper with no meat. OK…so she is a vegetarian. No problem I guess. Your way right away and all that. Not a problem. But then she keeps going. She asks if the grill has had meat on it. Of course. It’s Burger King. She asks how fresh is the lettuce. I don’t know I just work here. Are those heirloom tomatoes? What’s that? (OK I added the heirloom tomatoes part, but you see what I’m saying).
During this time I can see the guy in front of me getting increasingly frustrated, muttering curses under his breath, shifting and looking around. Then he pulls out his wallet, unfolds a piece of paper and reads it. It says in block letters: “I will not get mad”. He then composes himself a little while this lady continues to order her custom Burger, asking the employees to wipe down the grill for her, etc.
So yeah, there is a lot to overhear around Los Angeles.
