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.”

“I know.”

“Bob’s mother barely acknowledges me. But then, I don’t give much to anyone either.”

Well, duh.
