Overheard at the laundromat on 7th Street NW:

“I need to call that bitch and get some counseling!”
– one man to another, both waiting for laundry

“With kneepads, you can face the world!”
woman to man playing Pac-Man

“He’s lucky, he doesn’t have to stand in line to vote. He’s in a wheelchair.”
attendant to customer

“I’m voting for McCain!”
attendant to customers, prompting laughter

“Hey, anyone wanna buy my vote?”
possibly homeless guy to various laundromat patrons
