No don’t be under the impression that this post is a manual on “How to annoy me?” People manage to do it quite well without the manual
I am sure we all at some point or the other have faced annoying questions from people (mostly relatives) and how you wish you could just give it back to them on their face. But you never get the chance since you are to be in the best of your behavior. Ah the social demands to behave well with relatives!!
Here are the questions (some asked with genuine interest/concern, but still they piss me off) asked which annoys me and how I wish I could give them the answers mentioned below.
1) Why have you lost so much weight?
A: Well, it is my dream to join the Sri Rama Sena. I am very influenced by the work that they do. Unfortunately I wasn’t part of their last famous campaign when they raided the pubs and beat up people there. I am hoping they would let me know this time and I get a chance to do my bit to the society
3)You have been working for a while now, how much have you saved up?
A: I don’t want to sound pompous but I have saved up enough to buy the Taj Mahal. Do you think the government would be interested in selling?
4)How much do you earn every month Maga (meaning child in Tulu)?
A: I earn a little lesser than Mukesh Ambani. But I have already given hints to the company that if they don’t hike my salary next appraisal, they can as well take a hike
5)Why aren’t you getting married? We found a very good match for you last time (read about it here) but you rejected it. Why?
A: I have realized that life is an illusion. Nothing here is permanent. What comes has to go. So is it with relationships. So I have decided to remain a spinster. Perhaps I could join an ashram sometime later.
6)You do not seem very keen on getting married. Do you have a boyfriend?
A: Oh Yes aunty. How did you read my mind? Can you please persuade Papa to get me married to him? Only problem is that he is a Muslim. (no offence to Muslims, but it is enough to give a
minor nah major heart attack to my family)
