Overheard in a restaurant ladies room tonight as women in stalls on both sides of mine talked:
“They’re giving her a party. I’m lucky if my in-laws give me anything.”
“Yeah, I heard they also handed her $500 and told her to go buy a pocketbook.” (This was said by a woman in a decidedly Brooklyn accent, an older woman, as is evidenced by the use of the word ‘pocketbook’).
“She has nothing to complain about.”
“Bob’s mother barely acknowledges me. But then, I don’t give much to anyone either.”
