If you’ve ever spent any time in LA, you know that it’s a special kind of culture there. Unique to say the least.
Just spend a little time walking around without headphones on and you’re sure to overhear some fascinating little tidbits of conversation.
One enterprising Instagram account decided to start collecting these tidbits and sharing them with the rest of us, and man, they are all winners.
20. You don’t know you’re beautiful
How many times do you think this dude has tried this line and how often do you think it’s worked?
19. Exchange rate
Oh, LA. Never change.
18. Real love
Sounds like maybe your grandpa deserves a medal.
And maybe some dignity.
17. Face to face
It’s all the worst parts of dating with none of the benefits.
16. Common courtesy
It’s the professionalism that counts.
15. Nunya bidness
You tell ’em.
14. Another day in paradise
Can we keep the part where everybody leaves me alone?
13. The good ol’ days
Oof, right in the despair.
12. Miss Perfect
Sometimes, charity is performative.
11. Next level
Oh you mean like THAT, huh?
10. Cracking the code
People pretending health food is EXTREMELY DELICIOUS is my least favorite genre of conversation.
9. Chicken says what?
You do you, kid.
And they say that romance is dead.
7. Salad as a rock
Why are so many of these about chicken?
6. Just to be safe
Dang lady, what are you gettin’ up to out there?
5. Swing and a miss
This is a common tactic by hucksters – yell something like this out to enough people and at least a few of them will be anxious enough about their current situation to come pay you to hear more.
The downside of course is the number of relationships it almost certainly ruins.
I feel like our entire economy is now TikTok based and I won’t lie, I’m terrified.
3. High standards
Yeah, well, at least I knew what was in that.
2. Going through the stages
Life is beautiful.
Some of us get it.
Next time you’re out and about, keep your ears open.
