Incredible Quotables You've Heard In Person

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Let's hear the most hilarious/appalling/sad/etc. quote you've personally heard come out of another person's mouth...and they were saying it in all sincerity.

Mine is from a couple of years ago. I was at a local Wal-mart when a father and his 5ish year old daughter turned a corner from the toy section. The father says to the girl...

"Honey, it's not nice to call someone an idiot...unless they really ARE an idiot."

And some wonder why America is so screwed up.

Was at a party at a wealthy estate in the hills and some girls (read: college girls) were talking to an Indian (read: from the country, India) and they asked what tribe he was from. I figured it was an off-color (read: pun) joke or they were being intentionally dense. But when he said that he was from India one said petulantly, "Yeah, I know! But seriously, what tribe?"

I was at Safeway a few months ago and this guy comes up behind me in the check-out line. He unloads his basket of 20 cans of cat food and two bottles of wine.

I blurted out the first thing that came to mind: "You forgot the crackers."

We both had a good laugh out of that.

At McDonald's around 2000, this woman bounds up to the counter with 3/4 of a large fry eaten and demands her money back because they fries are cold. When they told her she wouldn't get her money back, but that they'd give her a brand new large fry, she starts shouting,"I pay my taxes! I pay my TAXES!"

No one really knew what to say. "Um...yes, sweetie, you do. Here's a Xanax..."

I used to manage a toy store that specialized in preschool toys.

We had a play table where kids could play with Brio and Thomas trains. This one child hit another child to make him let go of a train that he wanted. The father walked over and spanked his offending son really hard and then said..............



"We don't hit"!!!!

In a grocery store I saw a drunk dad tell his 7 year old son "if you do that again I will kill you". And I could tell that both father and son knew he was serious.

I was in shock the rest of the day.

I was telling this very patriotic Taiwanese woman that I work with that I put some Samsung hard drives in my TiVo and she says:
"Samsung. They're Korean - never trust Koreans."

Some time ago I was with my friends walking around the city at about 1:30am. A guy in his 20s stumbled out of a bar and walked across the street toward us. As he turned to walk down the sidewalk he tripped over a pile of box that were stacked on the curb. After he tripped, he just screamed out "FUCKING BOXES" and kicked the pile for boxes for good measure.

We followed behind him as he walked down the road. He stopped at a pay phone on the side of a building. He dropped in a quarter and called his cell phone. The number registered on his phone and he hung up and walked about 30 feet down the street and called it. A woman, a little confused, picked up the pay phone. The only thing the guy on the cell phone was, "You're shirt is making me horny" and then hung up. The woman had no idea who was calling the phone and me and my friends were just watching this whole thing unfold.

This quote is thirdhand, but my friend parked at King's Dominion (amusement park) and was walking to the main gate when the white trash family in front of him were acting up. One of the kids starts to throw a tantrum, and the mother, having her fill from the car ride and long walk through the parking lot, turns around and screams, Look, we're gonna have fun, God dammit!"

It's the asscrack of July in central Texas; the temperature is pushing 105 and the humidity is pushing 80%. No clouds. No shade.

The wife (then girlfriend) and I are sitting in a shuttle moving towards campus when it stops and lets in two high-school age black youth, both drenched in sweat like the rest of us. The first one with a giant, glistening-with-sweat afro and loud red shirt shouts over to the other one (3 or 4 feet away), "Damn, son, I feel like I got my head up in someone's mouth!"

The entire front half of the bus was howling, and the young man was quite happy with himself for the remainder of the trip.

this will get someone riled up for sure. I will try to be brief...
As I pulled into a friends driveway 15 years ago, there was a cat freaking out and jumping 10 feet in the air, and another cat approaching it. I thought WTF. I found my friend at the side door with a shotgun. He had just grazed the first cat with a blast. He then says to me "I am facing the biggest dilemma of my life. I have one shell left, do i blow the dancing cat off the face of the earth , or do I have two dancing cats?" I had no answer, so he went for two dancers. The second cat didn't fare as well as the first. He was left with one dancing cat.

BTW, the sounds that the dancing cat was making still haunts me from time to time....

Your friend is a sick fuck. I am genuinely worse off for having read that story.

we were friends growing up, he was always abusing animals. He was abused by his parents also.
I like animals, and his treatment always pissed me off. Since he moved to Florida way back in the late 80's we have only talked twice, he called me both times.
But the quote from him is still priceless.

I don't like national stereotypes so I was disappointed when a German girl that was over visiting a mutual friend here complained about us being silly in a pub. We explained that we were just having a laugh, we got a blank look, " You know, humour? "
" I don't like humour" came the stern-faced reply.
I'm afraid we wet ourselves.
