The Eatsdropper is too busy obsessing about himself

I’m still chuckling over this week’s first submission, and I’ve been sitting on it since last Wednesday. Keep ’em coming, kittens! As always, I’m at eatsdropper-at-seantimberlake-dot-com.

Man to woman in sushi restaurant as they are about to enjoy dessert:
    "You got two pineapple slices!  How did that happen?"
    "It’s yours.  I took it because you were too busy obsessing about yourself."

    "Working Girls … can boys go?"

Sign next to where there were in fact samples:
    "NO!! These are not samples. DO NOT STEAL!"
Tall white hippie man:
    "Whoa, that’s such negative energy to be putting out at the market."

Visitor to friend, in front of the Zuckerman booth:
    "But isn’t it a conflict of interest to have deep-fried organic asparagus?"

One year ago today … I lost one of my favorite sushi places. (But its replacement is better … shhh!)

  1. Sean, I am SO determined to find a great quote for you. This morning at the San Rafael Farmer’s Market: I’m eavesdropping everywhere. Just for you.

  2. Nice ones — my favorite is the negative energy 🙂 I hope one day I’ll run into a good one to send to you.

  3. I always steal Rob’s food when he talks about himself. It makes me happy to eat it and he’s happy to think I’m paying attention. LOL
