Overheard on the Tube

Time Out London magazine has a weekly feature which I usually read half-heartedly, called Overheard on the Tube. It is little tidbits that someone, I suppose on their staff, has heard while travelling along the Tube lines. Frankly, I didn't get it since I rarely heard people talk on the tube. Clearly it was invented.

Well, tonight on the tube I finally overheard two chick-a-dees talking and it was worthy of the Overheard on the Tube column.

Girl A: (heavy make-up, super short skirt, purple stockings, black coat and Ugg boots) Your earings match my lips.

Girl B: (over-processed hair, camel hair coat, black earings) No they don't, they match your coat.
