Overheard in Chicago

Twentysomething female on cell phone on bus:  You didn't get it? I sent it. Oh. Let me check. Ok. I'll send it again. Yeah...

Me (in my head, of course): You are annoying.  You could hear a pin drop on this bus that's stuck in traffic at 6PM on Thursday.  You are that person on the 'elevator.'

Young lady: Sorry. I'll send it again. I've had a lot on my mind.

Me: Please.

Young lady: Yeah, I went to the doctor yesterday.  It's focal seizures.  FOCAL.  So, it's not like a regular seizure but I still have to get this test and be in the hospital for five days.

Me: Oh my G0d.

Young lady: And I'm not sure what I'm going to do about health insurance.

Me: G0d, please watch over this girl.

Today, I am grateful ~
