Overheard at Queen's University is probably one of the funniest inventions ever made for social media, whether you're using the hashtag or posting right on their Facebook page, students come together to celebrate all our scholarly, weird, and downright embarrassing remarks. Sometimes though you have to sift through to find those posts that make you do that laugh that makes you sounds like a fusion between a hyena and cackling vulture (we all have those).
Sometimes, though, some of the hilarious comments you hear circulate broken telephone style, word of mouth. So we set out to do an ultimate overheard compilation. From the deep, dark feeds of Overhead on twitter, facebook, and our own scarily addicting eavesdropping - we got the goods that will bring a smile to this stressful time we call exam season.
A thank you to the people who speak a little too loud, and have no idea what a "whisper" is. And finally to those who just have Beyonce level confidence and don't give two shits if they just revealed to the entire Starbucks line that their Tinder hook up turned out to be their lab partner for the rest of the semester.
