Even more "Things you wish you hadn't heard"

So, twice today I have had those moments where singular words in other people's conversations pierce through the din of ambient noise and make a bold impression in my head.

The first was this morning on the train when the threatening looking youth sitting in the row behind me using his two way pager had the other participant in the conversation shout something to the effect of so-and-so being out on probation.

The second incident occurred at dinner at a hip french fusion place where the man at the next table suddenly elevated the level of his voice right when he started describing his current digestive troubles.
