Indian parents are always melodramatic. They love making a mountain out of a molehill, and will never spare the chance to make you realize that your lifestyle is nothing but a bloody mess. No doubt they love you to bits, but sometimes Indian parents just need to take a chill pill!
Parent’s Reaction: “If you are tired, why don’t you sleep, or watch some TV. Why do you have to go for a drive and waste so much petrol?”
Parent’s Reaction: “Why do you want to travel alone? What if something horrible happens, what if you are kidnapped or robbed? Are you going through a break-up or something?”
Parent’s Reaction: “Yes, yes now your parents are troubling you. We can’t even speak to you about your life. Just kill us na, then you can live alone in this house. Just waiting for us to die..."
Parent’s Reaction: “You don’t even have the time to talk to your parents for 2 minutes. What is so urgent in office? Are you the only person working there? You have absolutely no respect for your parents."
Parent’s Reaction: “Do you have any sense of responsibility? Just sit and watch this shit all day on your laptop. Your parents have to keep running around to do the work and you just park your ass on the sofa with these stupid ear plugs which will make you deaf one day."
Parent’s Reaction: “Why don’t you want to get married? Am I not going to get any grandchildren? You just want to keep loafing around like this for the rest of your life!”
Parent’s Reaction: “At your age, we never used to get these headaches. We used to do manual work and walk for miles; sometimes work more than 12 hours and still we used to get up early morning to start our day. Watch more TV, stare at your laptop and keep playing on your phone. What else is going to happen?"
Parent’s Reaction: “Why does the world know what you are eating? Why publicize everything? Is there nothing like privacy? All bloody show-off!"
"And did you just say PORN!"
