Ease Dropping

July 12, 2006

I have a problem.  I like to ease drop.  I am horrible at doing this. 
I ease drop and love to people watch. It is bad because my wife and I
will go to a restaurant and I will be having a conversation with her,
half listen to her and at the same time trying to listen to someone else
conversation. She knows I am doing it.

    You are not saying or pronouncing the phrase properly. It is “Eavesdropping” not ease dropping. Apparently this is a common misconception. This is easily solved by changing everything that you thought that you ever knew! It is quite rude to listen to other conversations but even more rude to not know what to call it!

    It’s common only because people don’t read and they don’t think about “where the word came from in the first place”. I’m a writer and just got an editing gig from a PhD, no less, who also misspelled it. Education is not the same as it used to be.
