This captures the personality of NYC perfectly.
Over here in good ole London, we walk in silence and look at people as if they've spit at us
These are all marvelous and I want more.
Yep that's NYC in a nutshell,I can identify with the 80s one,it evened out for me to.
I read all these in a New York accent
They weren’t asking about the Bus, nothing was safe but they weren’t going to let the NY students stay another night in Boston.
Cult is any church, not just startups.
That's the Bronx
Yeah fuck Boston. With our legal weed, world class hospitals, amazing schools...what horrible place!
I am offensive and I find this religious.
Here in India, we yell at strangers & spit at them.
These remind me of something NPCs would say in GTA
More dammit +1
Oh god it’s like I’m home...:
Yawn. Small town. Boring. Wannabe restaurant scene, insufferable sports fans.
Right. With you on the sports fans and all, but NY is the most over(priced)rated city in the world.
All time favorite: Crazy guy: Ma'am, say, who's your favorite James Bond? Hello? Is anyone listening to me? I said, who is your favorite 1/2
James Bond? Oh fuck this! I'll just mark it down as another George Lazenby. Fuck. –Port Authority 2/2
Heh, living in backbay is as expensive as living in Park slope except it’s horribly boring by comparison.
at least they aren’t as depressing as the overheard in LA ones
I really liked boston
I think you made my point for me. Last apt I was at in PS had mice and drug dealers living downstairs. Brooklyn, $12 PBR AFTER a $15 cover..
Christianity is a cult to be fair.
Here in Finland we stab strangers if they get too close, which is anything less than 3 meters
"Quac" Didn't know chipotle served duck.
I’ve had the pleasure of visiting New York only a couple of times, what an amazing place it is. Their motto should be “No bulls*** allowed”
Here in Canada, we politely apologize if we bump into somebody
Can I go to Greg’s lightning party next year?
I found all these overheard on instagram and read all of them for the past like 3 years and now all overheard posts on here will be reposts!
As a NYer, i can only support the florida license plate one. its just missing a few expletives.
Harmless means gay?
Here in glasgow we are actually pretty decent to each other....unless you mention football
And get stabbed. You get stabbed a lot in London lately.
There happen to be a California one?
As a NYer, I love the city but hate the amount of tourist there are. Or the assumption you are a tourist.
People helping people. This is why I love this site.
Even if we almost bump into them
"Mokuba, remind me the next time we see Wheeler to tell him to go fuck himself."
Even if they bump into us
Greg seems like a cool guy
WTF is going on in NY?
Is that where Melbourne got it from? I always wondered who we were so desperately trying to emulate.
Even if they're in the general vicinity
Too bad there won't be one for the Midwest. It would all be "ope," "sorry," "pass the ranch," and *judgemental stare but says nothing*
What is Bumble? And what the fuck is quac?
She wasn't the one calling out my order, and the guy that gave me the sandwich just thought I was an idiot.
Ate dinner in a sushi place in NY and the dean of my school was there. Nephew said - how can she be important 1/2
she can't even use chopsticks properly
Well she’s not wrong
I just had Papa Murphy's "Xtra Large New York" pizza last night! I've never had NY pizza, but I don't think this is accurate....
It’s why I can never leave!
Quacamole is my fav
Just like that.
Think they meant “guac” like guacamole
That's what I was wondering.
yet more examples of why NY needs to be wiped off the map in clensing thermonuclear fire
I live in a small town, and I through the people here were unbearable... this is a whole new level.
why would you miss a shithole.
Yes but you have SHITTY PEOPLE The only place i hate MORE than NY is boston and possibly seattle
who ever told you life was supposed to be exciting.
its not like you DO anything with all that theoretical stuff. you sit home and fuck about on imgur
LA... should be allowed to be swallowed by the next major earthquake
white hipster posers
most NYers are tourists in thier own city
Tbh in London right now we’re doing the same
yes but you also like eating shit too don't you
Stabbing haven’t massively increased-deaths and coverage have though
Man that's a fast stolen repost
If a stranger speaks to me I know they are either mentally unstable, drunk or lived abroad for several years
Harvard's not even in Boston (proper)
I'm from Minnesota, and that's exactly right.
These are better if you read them in a New York accent
What's Canada's crazy city? I mean every country should have at least one.
I miss NYC. Fuck that place.
A parisian one?
That suitcase kid is is going places.
When you order at a fast food or coffee place, they need a name to call out to say "come get your shit".
It's just one of the three most acceptable cults so it's a "religion"
"Aaall hear my waaaarning, never turn your back... on the RIPPER!"
is there a boston one?
Do people in NYC every get tired of posing?
Totally untrue, I’ve lived in London for the last 6 years and find it friendlier than most European cities.
And they name you’d use is “Batman”
I’m not from there, but based on visits I was would say Montreal...
After following Overheard in LA these seem much more positive/innocent/tame.
That would be my guess too. At least it has to be somewhere in Quebec or I'd be very surprised.
And you wonder why the English hate you.
Dildo, NFLD. They mothafuckas cray.
"North or south?" 'Take a guess' is kind've a dickish response. I'd assume the South, yes, but North Koreans HAVE escaped the regime before.
Half of those were obviously made up by an American with no concept of how the English talk.
You just did it!
Overheard a guy in NY yell to some friends, "IF ONLY ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE HAD USED SOME CONDITIONER, NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE HAPPENED!!!"
I got that, using a fake name, then scoff, haha, but why was this one funny? Is it a typical thing there?
Thats Brooklyn you uncultured SWINE!!!!!!
So glad I live in the south
Yes, thank you. Born in NY had to train a whole company of people from LA and wanted to harm everyone. Clueless airheads whole wad
...the actual name literally doesn't matter. Sometimes people use an actual name, sometimes people use a reference, VG name, whatever.
The only thing that matters is you go up there when your 'name' is called to get your shit.
This, random out of staters who moved to the city and claim they are NYer's after living in a apartment closet for 18 months
"The condom" no more no less
Vancouver can be very ... people do paddle board yoga in the water at Deep Cove. All downward dog.
Here in Canada, we use etiquette to subtly insult each other. Call someone who isn't younger than you "bud" and see how pissed off they get.
I get that we have it here too, I just didn't find saying a fake name funny enough and I thought its an insider joke
If you can flatten both with one nuke, it's not really worth claiming they're not in the same place. Technically, my hometown is 3 cities 1+
2/2 cuddling. But two don't count. One's pissy about not counting, the other's chill. It's weird.
Brooklyn is fine, its when people from brooklyn are in manhattan that shit gets real.
Overheard. I support the nets, jets, and mets because I'm decluttering my life, you know like Zuckerberg he wears the same t-shirt everyday
Thats why i love the cruel joke that is your Tube system :D Everyone forced to sit staring across the aisle at each other. Genius
"I'll bring THE condom"?? Implying he re-uses the same one over and over...
Did you mean: [i]flexing[/I]
1/2 I read somewhere that this is due to the train cars having to be narrow to fit in the tubes that get new tiling over the old tiling.
2/2 So the tubes constrict like an artery clogging up.
I look at people as if they killed my puppy. I’m also 6’4”. Much intimidate. People don’t talk to me though, so that’s cool.
Hmm interesting. Why do they put new tiles over old? To save time so tracks dont have to be closed long?
It's a matter of perspective you need to understand compared to where I live Boston is Disney World
As a NYer, can confirm. Someone who has never been to NYC could even have made most of these up and still be right on the mark.
Overheard in the Midwest: "How's it going?" . . . "Can't complain" . . . "You hear that South Carolina is talking secession?" . . .
Is there a Chicago one?
So LA is shallow and NY is full of assholes. Got it
. . ."Over gun control, right?" . . . "Hell. Guess we'll have to march down there and kick their moldy backsides one more time" . . . "Yep."
She is very wrong. Have you ever seen inside a real cult? There are documentaries.
I've done some research into cults, and that is very wrong. The difference is startling. Watch Going Clear if you don't believe me.
It's really not a cult. Scientology is a cult. The People's Temple is one. Christianity and so on aren't.
Cults tend to emulate popular religions the way carnivorous plants try to smell tasty. Once you get inside is when you know it's a cult.
cult noun a system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object. "the cult of St. Olaf" 1st definition
To be fair Floridians are really bad drivers
2nd definition a relatively small group of people having religious beliefs or practices regarded by others as strange or sinister
It is how every religion started, a small gathering of people with similar beliefs
I think you need to look harder at that second definition as it is the one being used here. In fact I would say the dictionary you have is /
/ outdated because the People's Temple had no religious beliefs, and yet we all know they are a cult. The definition you have is for /
*everybody, including other Indians.
Yes, I've found (me also, TIL), that the most 'New Yorkish' of accents I thought was NY, was actually a Connecticut accent! Go figure..!
/ 'New Religious Movements', which is the technical term for what you are describing a cult as.
In other words - the dictionary is nothing like the whole truth, and the meme is muddying the waters intentionally.
That's Staten Island
Finland sounds like a paradise.
"a system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object." - definition of Cult. Is Christianity not→
→the cult of Christ, Yesu, he who is both God and Mortal and sacrificed himself to absolve our sins?
Except that The People's Temple was a secular/Marxist cult. The dictionary is not a reliable expert source on this. Most experts prefer /
/ 'new' or 'emergent' religion and hold back on 'cult' because we all know what that word really implies.
Mine is two cuddling. I just say both when asked where I’m from
No, that would be a 'new religious movement'. At least circa first century, anyway.
The LA ones are much more extra..
Took direct from google. All new religions are strange, the only difference between a cult and a religion is the amount of followers.
And yet, that's not even close to how people use that word. And we all know that the People's Temple was atheistic - so not a religion.
That is not saying that all religions are terrible. But when does Scientology stop becoming a cult and begins to be a recognized religion
We also have the Cult of Stalin. If you examine cults they have a very different structure that is very distinct. Firstly they have layers /
How people use a word sometimes does not match the accurate definition. Look up literally if you need an example
/ that have no communication of core teachings between them.
I have. I've studied cults for years. What you are talking about is what the experts call a 'new religious movement' or NRM.
NRMs as a category can include cults, but cults also overlap with the secular too.
What a cult actually is is a pseudo-religion or toxic tribalistic structure centred around an 'inner circle' or leader. They are often /
I wouldn’t dispute your credibility, however many people would be split as to whether call it a cult or religion
It sounds like LA but slightly less shallow and way more full of themselves
/ designed to look like religions for reasons of credibility. For example, Scientology using the Christian Cross - despite /
/ considering Christianity a fake religion that was created by 'Xenu'.
Sure, although I think that divide is more about if they like the particular religion or not, personally. ;)
In Wisconsin we'll smile in passing, but also maintain the sacred 3 meters of personal space.
I don't want to be a furry.
I've never had a problem getting good cocaine on the cheap I guess I've just been lucky.
I can't find anything on it.
what does a duck put on his tacos? quacamole
Don't want to ruin the fun in any way, but some of these do sound very made-up to be honest.
True that, cunt
But wasn't he the bad guy in D...ooooh.
Thus, New York.
LU is over 100 years old, some lines are pretty narrow because they were designed for coal powered trains
I'll raise you calling someone who pissed you off "mate" or "fella" in the UK
I bet you were the sort of tourist that would say hello to anyone on the tube wern't cha?
I assume thats it. It's quicker to just tile over, so that the track only needs to be closed for a short while.
I live and work in Baltimore... Check mate
Born in Baltimore Had to train whole Office buildings of people I didnt throw any one of em out of the window
The tunnels aren't tiled, just the stations. Tunnels are cast iron or concrete depending on when they were built.
Oh my this, old people do it too, its hilarious. Or calling any woman over 20 "madam" or "madame" if you're in quebec
These are some of the least New York things that I have ever heard. I grew up and still live in New York
I understand what you are saying, but my name constantly gets messed up whenever I order food so saying this is easier and funnier
As an introvert that sounds closer to ideal than what I have here.
Overheard in sydney: "and then this big bastard of a wallaby comes fucking bounding across, straight into my fucking car m8."
I'm from the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) area that has more than a dozen cities that are all cuddling. Some cities are even surrounded entirely
By other cities. Dallas every year tries to eat even more from the countryside.
lol I know. My brother lives in Irving and I'm moving there soon. It's crazy and confusing, but I like it
The neighborhood roads in Irving are retarded and often go nowhere logical. Good luck and hope you find a good place to live. Try PJ's Cafe
On O'Connor. The pies are divine!
Will do. Thanks!
We got passed on the shoulder of the road in Montreal. There were four lanes of traffic heading the same direction. Fucking insane drivers.
read my post again, but slowly. ask an adult to help if you’re having trouble.
6 years doesn't not make you a tourist son
Is it just me, or does anyone else hate all the people that actually believe astrology. I was born in may so I'm strong, bold and smart
they don't wonder that.
i'm not your buddy, friend
NYC feels like a place where only a New Yorker can survive, but a New Yorker is lost anywhere else.
I'm told that I often look pissed off/scary when really I'm just thinking about random shit, I'm 6'1" but I don't really see it myself.
I actually think I look neutral but meh.
