It’s generally considered poor form to listen in on other people’s conversations.
But, then again, when you eavesdrop on other people, you’re bound to overhear some pretty hilarious and unbelievable pieces of dialogue. So, perhaps the rudeness is occasionally worth it?
Here are some of the most priceless conversations that people on Twitter have overheard, and they’re so delightfully weird that you might be forced to reconsider social niceties altogether. Who knew total strangers could be so totally entertaining?
