dgg9:27am: You sure you want to drive here?
Heard this on the radio. (Talking about that section of the Ville Marie Expressway that collapsed)

"Well folks, it's official. Driving in this city is statistically more dangerous than flying, bungee cord jumping and driving under the influence."

sinistercircus12:40am: Like in the movies...
Overheard on the 204 bus.

Girl and boy had been arguing since they got on the bus, near Lindsey Place HighSchool. There were two other people on the bus, including myself. About three stops later, near Yazoo pet store, an middle-aged woman gets on the bus. The couple's bickering continues.

Girl: (yelling) "You know, if you stopped drinking every f***ing day, maybe you wouldn't be so f***ing poor."
Boy: (cooly) "If you had a drink once a month, maybe you wouldn't be such a bitch."
Girl: (starts to get off the bus) "You know what? Stay on the bus and go back home. It turns around at Dorval. I'm outta here."
Boy: (follows her) "Wait what?!"

They get off and continue arguing as the bus drives away. It's really quiet on the bus, until about one minute later.

Middle-aged Woman: "Sometimes it's great to be single, huh? Who needs a man. Get a dog."

leftof_thedial4:00pm:  Guy 1: I like your shirt, man.
Guy 2: Thanks...
Guy 1: You always wear energetic shirts, man. I like it.

Definition of energetic: possessing or exerting or displaying energy. I think someone needs to make friends with the dictionary again.

Same guys.
Guy 1: You like it here, in montreal?
Guy 2: Yeah, it's nice.
Guy 1: If you need anything, man. Anything at all.
Guy 3: Prescriptions.... prescription medications....

dgg8:27am: I know intelligence is a prerequisite, but...
Overheard on the bus. I was sitting behind these two 18-year old girls...

Girl 1: "It's not, like, y'know...I hate the job or anything, it's just that they sometimes ask me to do shit I don't wanna do."

Girl 2: "Why don't you quit?"

Girl 1: "I might...I dunno...Anyways, the manager is going on vacation for two weeks. I plan to take, like, y'know... full advantage."

Girl 2: "I see...Hey, how's Mike?"

Girl 1: "Mike?"

Girl 2: "Mike! Your boyfriend?"

Girl 1: "Oh! *lol* He's fine I guess. I dunno. I think I might break up with him."

Girl 2: "Why?"

Girl 1: "I dunno...I feel like I am too smart for him."

dgg10:03am: Obviously an American Tourist
Hey I don't enforce the stereotype, I just write them as I observed them.

American Tourist #1: “I don’t understand why nothing is written in English! Don’t these people know that tourists can’t read French!?”

American Tourist #2: “I don’t see why the locals complain. The winters here are so pretty!”

American Tourist #3: “So I asked her, ‘Why am I being charged $20 extra!?’ and she says ‘taxes’. $20 in f*cking taxes!? That’s outrageous! I don’t see why I have to pay that!”

American Tourist #4: “Well he said he was from Mun-tree-al but I think he was pulling my leg because his English was really good!”

v0idnull1:47pm: The French Defeat the Americans
smoking a cigarette in pointe st. charles, two people are locked in a debate.

American: "Who does all the killing in Iraq?"
Quebecer: "Well, I imagine its the rebels."
American: "And where are these rebels from. They aren't Iraqi, they are Al Queada forces"
Quebecer: "And they weren't there till you showed up"
American: "I...uh...eh... ..."
axonbiologist12:31am: A change of pace, but it is what i overheard . . .

A 17 year old girl sits in a Cadillac and yells at a boy of about the same age lying in the passenger seat, with the seat all the way reclined, looking away from her. The dashboard lights dully illuminate them both. The girl is blond and skinny, with a tight face, and she is yelling so loudly that she can be heard outside of the car, down the block. The boy has black hair, shorn diagonally across his face. His face is in a state of total otherness.

Girl: 
FUCK YOU! i DON'T deserve this! How could you say I earned it? 
         (sobs as the boy mutters something.)
Get out of the car!

          (They both sit in silence.)
