I’m currently sitting in a coffee shop looking at every table around me. For the last two hours, I’ve heard a girl explain to her boyfriend why he should give the Harry Potter books a chance, three single twenty-somethings justify why they won’t get married until they’re fifty, and a guy who looks like Larry David “listen” to smooth jazz while not realizing his headphones aren’t actually plugged in. The comedic relief of being out in public is all around us. Thankfully, there’s no shortage of Instagram accounts that compile these moments for the masses.
Enter: Overheard New York. Overheard LA started it all and has now reached over 250,000 followers. And recently, they’ve unveiled Overheard New York which is all of the same hilariousness, but less granola and more, well, New York.
As much as I want to hate the young professional yuppie scum who embody and fuel this account, I can’t. Because most of the time, they’re right in what they’re saying. Oh well. .
