Remember when all you had to worry about was not posting embarrassing things on social media? Now your every ditzy, insensitive, or shallow conversation is in danger of going viral should a witty stranger overhear. The musings of randoms everywhere are becoming the hits of the interwebs. It doesn’t get more real than that, and I have to admit, I love it.

 

@GSElevator

If you happen to be one of the 631 thousand Twitter followers of @GSElevator, you may be interested to know the anonymous reporter of Goldman Sachs elevator talk has been revealed, and he has a new book deal to boot. John Lefevre, who was never an employee of Goldman Sachs, has been painting a glorious picture of Wall Street types by tweeting overheard comments of Goldman’s employees for the last three years. You can read more about that in The New York Times, but first see what the hype is about.

This bystander turned a run-of-the-mill breakup into a very public, very amusing, showcase of emotion. Buzzfeed, as usual, did a great overview of Kyle’s play-by-play, but these are a few of my favorite gems to hold you over.

 

 

 

 

 

 

@WeFoughtAbout

This twitter account is unique. Alan and Claire record the reasons why they fight. It’s such a simple concept, but it’s fun for people of every relationship status (I’m looking at you single folks). Not convinced? See for yourself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

@charliemcdowell

Charlie was one of those unfortunate souls to have noisy upstairs neighbors; something I am familiar with because I can hear the resident above me snoring at night. But I digress. Charlie’s neighbors are much more entertaining (for us, anyway) with their dim-witted one-liners. His sarcastic commentary definitely gives it an extra kick.

 

 

 

 

 

Tweet @wayvs with the best musings you’ve heard today.
