Ear-Trumpet-Overheard-DC

 

Welcome to the first of our series of eavesdropped conversations.

[We couldn’t help but overhear your private conversation in a public place.]

 

EXT. CHINATOWN ON 7TH NW BETWEEN G & H — AFTERNOON

A 20-something white couple passes a middle-aged black man wearing a jacket with armed forces veteran insignia and asking for change.

YOUNG MAN

Ooooh. That one makes me feel bad.

YOUNG WOMAN

What?!? Have compassion for the guy claiming to be an army veteran and asking for money?!? No compassion! Compassion is weak.

[BOTH LAUGH]
