Toffs On Tasty Tuesday, Overheard In Waitrose!



Over here we have a very upmarket supermarket chain called Waitrose where people who have deep pockets shop. Then there are those people who are wanna be toffs (posh folk) who wanna be seen, buy a few items and run home with their prized carrier bag. So on tasty Tuesday we bring you the latest intermutt craze.......Facebook and 'Overheard In Waitrose'.








The cheese is rare over here...




Even Downton Abbey......

Facebook Overheard In Waitrose!

And heading down market the spoof of the spoofs are coming........







What would you overhear in your supermarket? 

Have a tasty Tuesday everyone.

  2. Does window shopping at Waitrose count as being filthy rich? ;)

  3. YOU have such good hearing Miz Molly; I was actually trying to record conversations yesterday for a poetry assignment to mix sentences from various places. DO YA THINK I COULD HEAR? NO....I went to the doctor yesterday to be examined for a dizziness that i've had for 3 weeks. They did a hearing test and sure enough, I have a hearing loss! So I fear I won't be overhearing any juicy conversation at the market!!!!

  4. this is hilarious... I shop Wal-Mart and what we hear is Spanish, German, British, French and a few i don't know what they are speaking.. this is true. our WM is 6 miles from the local beaches and we are a tourist town.... I hear more languages than English. most of us are trying to get out because it is so crowded so we don't talk. and i always wonder if they are talking about fat and old ME.

  6. Haha, this was wonderful! We don't know Waitrose so it's good you gave us the background. It sure is funny how people talk all fancy in certain places :-)

  7. Overheard on a Sunday afternoon stroll on Hampstead Heath several years ago:
    "No Aaron, you cannot have an ice cream".
    "Oh but please Mummy, PLEEEEEASE! They do kosher at Ben and Jerry's".
    Cheers!

    1. PS We can only dream about Waitrose here in Aberdeen. The nearest one is 130 miles to the south in Edinburgh.

  8. All the grocery stores in my area charge prices that are on the moon! The shoppers might not all be rich, but the receipt at check-out sure makes it look that way!

  9. BOL! I love love love it.
    Here the fancy store is Whole Foods. And the store for the masses is WalMart. I may have to start a US Edition : Overheard at Whole Foods. Part of the fun is the name of the children...

  16. I'm not sure if I would like to be important when it costs me a fortune... I rather be the simple guy from next door and I'm with Oscar Wilde: “Let me be surrounded by luxury, I can do without the necessities!” woohoo, where is my Perrier Jouet and the caviar? Have a luxury tuesday and don't wait for rose lol

  20. I'm going get mummy to keep a closer eye on what everyone's saying when she shops in future

  21. I'd love to overhear some humorous conversations like these at the market but here the kids scream and cry and the parents just ignore them and continue shopping... I suppose this is the reason my cupboards are very often bare but Wilhelm, Brychwyn, Huxley, Amelia and Leo always have plenty of meals, snacks and toys; the pet store is way more fun!

    1. Yep, that'd be me and my 2 year old. She's horribly bad. She wants to eat the food in the store but she can't so she throws a fit. So I just have to keep shopping. Sometimes I just give her an apple from the bag.

  24. Hysterical! Probably similar to Whole Foods here only you would hear the words organic, free range, etc. in the same sentences. Love Dolly

  25. Too funny, although that Jennie's human isn't so bad if she is getting sirloin for the dog - we would love to have some sirloin too:)

  28. Oh dear the Waitrose clan are better than those of the Wal-Mart breed, I must say that my Mum has only ever driven past it, never set foot inside the doors, she can't even afford M&S but we do enjoy Asda and Pets at Home! I don't need unicorn feed or ever desire to eat a papaya but Mum says she loves that they have a better class of criminal, this is all hilarious! XxxxxxxxX

  29. Whee know our hoomans love overhearing funny things. They once overheard a woman on the phone to her husband/boyfriend

    "If you needed it today you could have washed it yourself . . . Why do you need my hairdryer? . . . . No I really don't think it will dry the shirt quicker."

    Strange people, strange times!

  31. Hehehe, good one Molly. We just hear our own mum going yackety, yackety, yack cause she bumps into everybuddy in the WHOLE TOWN while she's shopping. Footy scores, netball scores, who's injured, who's been sick, who started school, blah, blah, blah. We sometimes have to wait in the car for hours we tell ya! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  35. Early one Saturday morning mom overheard a couple trying to decide what snacks to buy for their kids birthday party: Dad pointing at the cheap & nasty PINK vienna sausages says to his wife "Buy these...kids love this sh*t". Mom says she had to high tail it out the aisle 'cos she was laughing to much!
    Then there was the time mom was standing in the check out line at Woolworths (our "upmarket" store) and the lady in front of her was having a total hissy fit on her cell phone because her kids had been playing in the elevator to their penthouse and had gotten stuck. Mom says she hopes to NEVER live through a "crisis" like that again.

    Thanks for the hearty BOL Mol!

  36. Now that's just funny! We know some fake posh type. They refuse to shop at those 'other' stores and pay out their noses just to not be with us common folk. Ha!

  37. If the last one of these people is filthy rich, why are they doing there own shopping? Our pawrents probably would never go there as they would feel intimidated. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giuletta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
