Brilliant blog idea, free for the taking I came up with this brilliant blog idea while at Wal-Mart shopping for a cheap microphone. (Yes, due to popular deman, I'm going to attempt to add my own voice to future bloggedy pod podcasts. Maybe. We'll see.)
Anyway, about the brilliant idea. You know about the Overheard in New York blog, right? That's where people post snippets of conversation from the streets of the Big Apple. It's a popular, high-traffic blog.
So, my idea is to do something similar. I would call it, Overheard at Wal-Mart.
Here are some snippets I heard on my recent visit.
Greeter: Welcome to Wal-Mart!
Checkout girl: Will that be all for you?
Checkout girl (in weary monotone): Have a nice day.
Greeter (as I departed): Thank you for shopping Wal-Mart!
And in the parking lot:
Skinny, tattooed white-trash girl to boyfriend: You're such an asshole!
Boyfriend (in wife-beater): Snicker
So, all you enterprising bloggers out there, here's a freebie for you. You're welcome.
