The other day, i was on the train and i overheard a sweet little six year old saying to his mum, "Mummy, when i turn 100... you'll be dead." Is there any funny or silly conversations you have overheard?

When I was at the computer store I overheard a phone conversation between an employee and a customer with a problem. I couldn't here the other side but the conversation went like that: "Ok. Tell me your problem? Your monitor is BLACK... you don't know why..." Then he presumed a virus attack or a problem with the electricity and probably everything that could go wrong when you are new to computers. Finally, the emplayee seemed mad and almost yelled at the receiver: "OK. DO you see the box that is bellow your monitor? NOW, THAT IS your computer. It has to have a buton with the name POWER on it. You press it and then your monitor will not be black." WHen I laught heartily the employee looked at me with angry eyes and went somewhere. I guess he needed to calm down. I have heard some really cute kid questions, but this conversation beats everything else that I could tell you

I'm sure I have heard several of those, but I can't think of a good example of one off the top of my head. Still, that's pretty funny. I guess the kid was pretty smart for 6, lol. Kinda sad but kinda funny too!

ahahas! Yeah, and a bit later the kid asked, "Mummy, when i turn 18 can i have an IPhone?" and he had an older brother who was sitting next to him and the older brother (probably still in primary) said, "An Iphone is like... $40 000 AUS!" The mother replied, "No... it's a bit less than that. It's around $2000". Okay, the price of an IPhone is actually $200-$300... Both the mother and the older brother got it wrong. LOL

Quite honestly, I find children's conversations to be very annoying. I can't tell you how many times I've had to bite my tongue whenever I hear a kid start talking about something like how much money they got from the Tooth Fairy after losing a couple of teeth, or asking questions like "Why is the sky blue?" or "Does God see us all the time?" My thoughts would immediately be: "Who cares?", "Because that's just the color God made it," and "He's God...of course he sees you all of the time." Needless to say, I don't plan on being a mother any time soon. I'd never be a very good one; I'd probably end up yelling at every stupid question the kid asked.

I once overheard a lady on her cellphone trying to pick out an outfit to wear. Finally she told the person on the other end, "You know what, pack the yellow one, it will match my sunburn." thought that was funny, and its stuck with me ever sicne.
