It's time once again for overheard—bringing you all the ridiculous conversations we've sneakily jotted down whilst you were talking unawares. This week we deal with the problems of salad in winter, proper fashion protection, and your best mate's breakup. 

Winter lunches

Girl 1: What are you having for lunch today?
Girl 2: Well I brought a salad. But I'm not eating a salad. It's raining.
Girl 1: Clearly.

On Mates' Break-Ups

Girl 1: You've been hanging out with [dude's name] a lot lately... what's up there?
Girl 2: Well, I know he's heartbroken, and I don't mind being the shoulder to cry on. I just don't want to turn into—
Girl 1: The new V?

On Old Ads 

Girl 1 [watching the Ice Break Coffee ad on television]: This ad came out three years ago and they’re still playing it on TV.
Girl 2: It’s like they decided that this was the absolutely the best possible way to promote iced coffee, and they’ve vowed never to make another ad as a company ever again. 

On fashion protection 

Girl 1 [putting a leather jacket in a car boot]: Is my jacket going to get wet if it rains?
Guy 1: Did you actually think about what you just said? 

Fancy schmancy

Girl 1: Want to come to this event? There are whisky butlers.
Girl 2: What's a whisky butler?
Girl 1: Will the answer determine your interest?
Girl 2: Well if it's whether or not there's a butler serving me whisky, then yes, of course.

Chucky IRL

Girl 1: I just got the creepiest email about a cafe where dolls sit at the table with their 'human friends' 
Girl 2: No. No no no no.
Girl 3: Can you send me the deets? 
Girl 1: [Turns around slowly, horrified]
