Sometimes, due to curiousity, we tend to intentionally listen with others' conversation, especially if its something special like Love or Secret sharings... We are sometimes really tempted to do so, aren't we? Hehe... Have you ever listened to someone else's conversation? What is it all about? What have you felt after accidentally listening to someone else's conversation? Have you dared gossiping it with your friends?

Listening to other peoples conversation's is a great way to pass time. The best places are in bars and Late Night Diners. My friends and I always discuss what other people are saying. I think it's because we are so boring ourselves.

Hi there AShraderJr! I think you are right about that past time line of yours. Yes, I do have experienced listening others' conversation because sometimes it really bores me when I have no one to talk to. I haven't yet listened discussions in bars since I'm not yet 18. I wonder what are they talking about in such place... Would you give some of their topics? xD

A lot of people argue about personal things in bars. Because they've had too much to drink. Others just talk bad about other people in the bar. It's a fun time! They are the main two you till hear.

I think I won't enter anymore bars. xD Seriously, I don't drink and I don't wish to. What I don't want the most is that when you enter the bar, it seems like everyone's eyes are looking forward to you. Hehe... I somehow hate that. xD Well anyways, thank you for posting your experience. Thank you also for dropping by.

I dont intentionally listen to someone else's conversation because it's bad. But accidentally? Almost always, in the bus, while waiting in line at the grocery or at the clinic. Mostly, people who have conversations in the bus or elsewhere would talk more than loud so everybody can hear. It;s really funny because sometimes you listen and you think that they are talking about a person you knew.

Hi there sandymay16. I do agree on your first line that listening intentionally to others' conversation is a bad thing, but sometimes we are tempted to because we are somehow curious. xD Anyways, on the bus thingy, what usually are their topics that you find fun with? By the way, thanks for your response and thanks also for dropping by.

Listening to others conversation is not a good attitude but if you hear it unintentionally well i guess its excusable. On my part whenever i see or hear someone or a group having an intense or sort of private conversation, i just let them do their thing by leaving or making a distance with them. I have a friend who would listen to any conversations and like to butt in and as i observed, i really don't like it.

Hi khizfarm. I understand your point. But, isn't there an instance where you were really tempted to do such thing? Or if you have done it, haven't you been interested to listen more? xD Anyways, thanks for your response and thanks also for dropping by.

Well, I don't like to do that because I feel very bad afterwards. But sometimes I'm just tempted to.. So I listen to other people's conversations on the bus . Pretty funny sometimes .

Hi redwarrior82! That's nice. People (especially students) are really careless with their conversation and it doesn't really matter for them if someone's listening. By the way, can you give some about those "pretty funny sometimes" experience of yours? Hehe... I'm somehow interested... xD
