not so much overheard, as asked
my mum's friend came round and asked me to put the contents of a CD-ROM onto a floppy disk. I kept my composture and tried soooo hard to explain that it wouldnt happen. She was adamant, she claimed that because the game (which came free in cereal btw) was on a CD-ROM it didnt work, and that by putting it onto a floopy, it would. I then proceeded to give her a little demonstration with the numbers on the computer and a tiny maths lesson... about 600 MBs of data won't go onto a 1.4 MB disk, turns out it wasnt working because thier computer is ancient, this is the same lady who doesn't trust smart cars at all for the reason that they "smell funny" and so has discounted them as a good solution to pollution and congestion...

absolutely no apologies for girth, you know you like it like that ;)
