PEOPLE say the funniest things - and it only takes a quick stroll around the streets of Crayford to overhear some bizarre snippets of conversations.

While Twitter and Facebook appear to have taken over the medium of face-to-face chat, News Shopper reporter Daniel Evans headed out to see if townsfolk were still in favour of a good chinwag.

Here is a selection of quotes picked up while eavesdropping...

Bubble & Squeak Cafe

Two women chatting: "Who did you meet last night?"

"I’ll give you a clue it ends with D", "Gerald?"

"No you idiot Gerald doesn’t have a D in it!"

"Oh yeah"

Sainsbury’s

Woman turns to partner after being cut up by a trolley: "You know what I just realised? I really don’t like people!"

Two lads shopping: "Can I ask you a question?"

"Haven’t given me much choice really have you?"

The Bear & Ragged Staff

Man walks in to the pub sits down with a group of mates and says: "I’ve had the strangest day, and I’m not even drunk yet."

Curry’s

Woman explaining something to her friend: "It’s about 50/50. No wait, not that, it’s the other way round."

Wow. This Sam Christie has actually completely ripped off the page I created on Facebook. The page has been going for over two years and this guy has really run out of creativity. Good luck moving beyond the News Shopper in your career, with this show of a complete lack of any ideas of your own, you should do just great.

Search for my page on Facebook 'Overheard In The' and you'll see what I mean, right down to the structuring of the comments.

You sir, are a poor, poor journalist.
