Rich People Overheard Saying Ridiculous Things

If you live in the UK you will have heard of Waitrose. If you are from outside the UK the only thing you need to know about Waitrose is that it is a very upmarket food and drink store in the UK where wealthy people shop for their groceries.

The store is so posh that someone has made a genius Facebook page celebrating some of the ridiculous things people are overheard saying while doing their weekly shop.

As an example – ‘No Jennie you can’t only serve olives at your tenth birthday party…now go and fetch a sirloin for the dog.’

or – ‘Of course I would buy the smoked salmon, but it makes the Maserati smell like a fishmonger’s.’

or even – ‘Luciano behave! Children these days… I blame the au pairs.’

The best of these hilarious things people have been overheard saying while shopping have been put against these images below. I hope you are as tickled as I was.

At least this young man is aware of his grammar

I kind of like these people even though they are so clearly OTT.
