OVERHEARD AT WILLIAMS SONOMA

  1. "I can't believe it's closing down. Looks like it was looted here."
  2. "Yeah but there's the one in Columbus Circle, not far."
  3. "Why do you think they're closing, rent's jacked up?"
  4. "Yeah. The Pottery Barn nearby is closing. Crate & Barrel too."
  5. "What do you think is gonna come in?"
  6. "These linens! I don't know a nice condo maybe."
  7. "Or a Toys R Us. Or Walmart."
  8. "Definitely Walmart. Could you imagine?"
  9. "Oh god."
  10. And then they did their rich people laugh.
