Overheard #5 - I call this one just plain "Useless."

Two ladies, one younger than me, one older, talking over lunch:

"I didn't talk to him at all that night."

"Why not?"

"I don't know why. It was weird. I guess I just never got around to it."

"Why not?"

"Well, I came in the room and I saw him over there. He was talking to a bunch of people. But, I started talking to people and we didn't end up talking for some reason."

"Why do you think?"

"Well, I was busy talking to people and he was busy talking to people. It just never happened. Weird, right?"

"Yeah."

"Yeah. It was weird. I don't know why we didn't get around to talking. I mean, when I saw him at first, I thought I'd end up talking to him, but it just never happened. I wanted to talk to him. It's not that I didn't want to talk to him. I just didn't get over there and then, I guess, the party was over. It's weird, right?"

"Yeah. You wanted to talk to him. It's weird that you didn't talk to him then."

"Yeah. I know. Really weird. I would have talk to him. It just never happened."

"Weird."

"Yeah. I know. Weird, right?"

"Yeah."

"Yeah. It's weird."
