Overheard on the Amtrak

Girl: "I sleep in a coffin."
Her friend: "With the lid closed?"
Girl: "No. My roommate's cat likes to sleep with me and it scratches at the lid. It's not totally airtight. It was built for a person just my size, so there's not much room.
Friend: "Was it built for you?"
Girl: "No. My roommate's father built it for this other girl, but it freaked her out."

Oh. My. God.

Best overheard convo ever!

It was amazing.

Later, the girl in question turned out to be a heinous bitch who spent the entire ride complaining about how I'd "ratted her out" when, in an attempt to be helpful, I told her that a certain stop wasn't a "smoking stop" and the conductor happened to be standing there.

The conversation, however, was AWESOME.
