This is a question Overheard secrets

When I was a barman, I stood by polishing a glass as a couple had a hushed argument two feet away about what they were going to do now she was pregnant. The bloke promised to leave his wife, but subsequent hushed arguments revealed that he did not. What have you overheard?

Best. Meal. Ever!
Sitting in a pub having a quiet schnitzel and chips with the missus one night a couple walked in and took a table around the corner from us. It was an odd-shaped restaurant area and they clearly didn't think anyone was near them. We were eating, so hadn't said anything as they arrived, and their conversation started.
"Look before we order, I want to tell you something," she said.
"I was pregnant, but I'm not anymore. As of this last week."
And so it began.
The girl had been pregnant, the guy was outraged he hadn't been told, she said it was because they'd been broken up for the past month and she didn't know if they were ever getting back together, he said oh darling how horrible for you to go through that alone, she revealed it was an abortion, he was outraged, she revealed he wasn't the father, he was apoplectic, she said she'd slept with someone else because she'd found out about him and her best friend, he was ashamed, she said she was only with him now to hurt him, he said was only with her now to win her back, she said she didn't love him at all, he said he loved only her, she cried and said she really loved him too, he said "Ha!" I lied I don't really love you, she called him a bad word, he dashed down his cutlery... and a woman walked up to say "Hi there, just wondering if you'd like to take part in the trivia contest later? Here's a pen and... oh, have I come at a bad time?"
The trivia lady left, the man stormed off and the woman, with a defiant snort, got up to leave as well..
And saw us sitting there slack-jawed with a fork still halfway to our mouths from when they'd started five minutes before.
Dinner theatre at its finest.

When we go out, all we get at the next table is the screaming baby.

despite having kids, I avoid places likely to have screaming babies, for this reason

I don't know
I like a screaming baby.

At least, if suckling pig isn't on the menu.

You take your kids out to places where children are not normally expected?
Rather inconsiderate, isn't it?

not exactly
I was more discerning about eateries and my two generally didnt scream the place down. Or if they were cranky, we thought better of taking them out. Its not everyones idea of fun to sit next to gurning kids, so having this insight allowed me to spare the rest of humanity.

Anyway, I was saying I avoid places likely to have screaming kids, didnt say I avoided such place whilst with my two. Now they are teenagers so its a moot point lol

Pizza Hut is a god send.
I think they expect you to scream and shout a bit.
