Overheard in the Street: Love Rants

When people think a public audience isn't listening, what do they talk about and what are they saying? Leah Garchik, a popular opinion columnist for The San Francisco Chronicle, includes a tidbit of public eavesdropping in each of her articles. All of the following have something to do with love, dating, and the meds that are helping us cope along the way. For more of Leah's overheard love rants, click here.

  • "I'm glad you're meeting someone interesting. It must be that new medicine you're on." (Female nurse on cell phone, overheard at Kaiser in San Francisco by Peter Washburn.)
  • "I'm supposed to meet him here but I can't remember if he's hot. Is he hot?" (Woman on cell phone, overheard on Chestnut Street in the Marina by Mark Pitta.)
  • "I'm not going there to get laid, but I might have to leave early to avoid it." (Self-assured young man to friend, overheard near the UC Berkeley campus by Marilyn Pon.)
  • "I'm looking for a green man: high productivity and zero emissions." (Overheard in Macy's in Corte Madera by Jon Dreyer.)
  • For more eavesdropping fun,

  • "I need to find a boyfriend because I need to argue with somebody." (Woman to woman, overheard on Hayes near Fillmore by Ronn L. Robbins.)
  • "I don't see us being a girlfriend-boyfriend thing. I mean, we could be, but it's so obvious to me we won't that I felt I should mention it." (Boy to girl, overheard at Jupiter in Berkeley by Dave Bourdon.)
  • "I'm not a bad guy ... a little creepy maybe, but not a bad guy." (Man to man, overheard walking near the UC Berkeley campus by June Vonich.)
  • "I don't have a relationship with a man, so I decided to have a relationship with my hair." (Woman at the Fairfax Theatre, overheard by Shae Irving.)
