There's nothing quite like catching a snippet of a funny, scandalous, or cringe-worthy conversation when you're out in the world.
The lives of strangers are immediately far more interesting than ours, since we can project whatever fictions we like onto them. So, it's hardly surprising most of us perk our ears up when we eavesdrop a morsel of juicy conversation. Even a fleeting sentence gives us enough material to paint a picture of someone with, even if it's a false and fabricated one.
The Instagram account Overheard LA is dedicated to documenting conversational snippets from strangers, and the results range from wholesome to funny to disturbing.
