Droppin’ Eaves

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.

  1. Some seem obviously fake (unless people really say “omg! wtf!” in conversation), but some are great. I added two, hopefully they’ll be up (one from in front of Ackerman at UCLA, and another from UCI).

  2. I am the editor of the site and I edit the posts…changing “what the f*ck” to “wtf”, etc. both to make them more internet friendly and also to avoid excessive swearing on the site

    Honestly, i have no way of telling what is real or what is fake…if its funny, it makes it up there =)

  3. Cool Nader, thanks for the explanation, but while I can understand editing for swearing, I’d prefer to see the words written out in non-Internets speak.

    Either way, great job setting up the site–it’s about time LA has had something like this!
