One Year Later

This past week the first anniversary of this site went quietly by. Wow, has it really been a year already? Yes, it has. We just said so. Please pay attention. We hope that the site has made you laugh, or caused you to look over your shoulder before speaking. We wanted to take this moment to thank our readers, especially those who contribute, and our non-readers, especially those who provide our fodder. This site wouldn’t be here without the help of friendly ears. If you heard anything, do take the time to send it in. We also wanted to announce that due to the great influx of submissions, starting tomorrow we’re going to be posting twice daily for as long as possible. Onward and upward, as we once overheard someone say. –The Overheard In New York Staff, NYC

It’s All Fun and Games Until He Drives the Bus into the River

Bus driver: Next stop: 60th Street, transfer to the four, five, six or the N/R. Sixtieth Street and Bloomingdales, next stop… Hi, everyone — I’d like to take this red light to thank you for joining us on this, the one hundred and fifteenth run of the M103 bus. Now, I know some of you have had bad days at school, work, church, et cetera, but please don’t bring that home to your loved ones. Leave all your stress on the bus, and I’ll toss it into the East River for you when we pass it. [Applause.]
Middle-aged woman: Well, that was nice of him!

I, Uh… Know?

Male hockey fan: I swear — if he shows me his ass one more time…

Male hockey fan: Seriously, I’ve seen the inside of his colon.

Overheard Everywhere

Occasionally, we leave New York and also overhear great quotes that we’d like to use on the site, which we haven’t done when they’re not in an Office or Beach. To encourage our eavesdropping, we’ve launched Overheard Everywhere – The Voice of the Rest (of the world outside of New York).

This site is a bit different than our others because, in addition to posting what we overhear ourselves and what our spies tell us, we will also link to the Best Of the other overheards on the Internet, on the hundreds of imitation overheard sites that have popped up — so, if you or a friend of yours runs your own overheard site, tell us about it, and we’ll read it daily and post and link to our favorites on your site, too.

Let us know what you think at hatemail@overheardinnewyork.com or lovemail@overheardinnewyork.com
