‘Office Overheard’ Instagram account captures the funny, odd and random office conversations we all have

over-heard-office.JPG

Our fellow office workers might not be our best friends, but we spend more time with them than any other group on this planet. 

We talk to them about our commutes, what we're having for lunch, what we're craving, odd thoughts that pop into our head and other daily musings. It makes the office a ground for comedic and often odd conversations. 

Two designers who work in an unknown 'scientific' office noticed these weird and wonderful chats and decided to share them on Instagram.

The anonymous pair listen out for witty quotes from their colleagues, illustrate icons to capture them and then post them on their account Office Overheard.

They may only have 205 followers, but their posts are certainly resonating. 

We pick some of the best lines below.
