If you’ve grown up in India, here’s something that you will associate with. Weve all met them, had our cheeks pulled, tried to run away from them and invariably failed to live up to their ‘great expectations’.
Yes! We are talking about the next best thing after our parents; the omnipotent and omnipresent ‘aunty ji’. Here is a list of 7 annoying things this ‘virus’ does that will make your hair curl.
Looks like there is a secret school for aunties offering a PHD in the art of gossip. Boy can they go on and on! Think of an energizer bunny constantly yapping about who’s dating who and what dresses others tend to repeat at parties. It’s surprising how they are able to gather so much information about others and make no mistake in sharing every minute detail! If you are headed for a function and expect to run into one, we recommend ear plugs.
It’s time to sack your watchman and remove the CCTVs from your society. Our Aunty ji’s come pre-packaged with GPS trackers, spy cams and gadgets to keep a secret eye on your life. Want to join the CIA? Get trained by an Indian aunty. After all, it is their moral obligation to peek into your life!
Interrogation Level: Expert
Aunties come prepared with a barrage of questions about your life. Not to mention, their style of asking questions is so unique that you may willingly spill the beans. It does not matter how insignificant the detail. If something is happening in your life, they want to know. After all, you do need a conversation starter at the next kitty party. Do you not?
You’ll always be a Pappu
Even if you turn 30, expect a card that says ‘Dear Pappu / Pinky’. What’s more, aunties make it a point to loudly proclaim how you wet your pants in their lap when you were small! Note: More people around you means a louder decibel.
Their special interest in your love life
Looks like aunties thrive on commissions from match-making bureaus. Their interest levels in your love life can be pegged at the top of the list. Imagine saying Hello and being greeted by “Ooh beta, so new boyfriend now ha? When are you tying the knot?” How about one around your neck huh aunty?
Aunty is always in vogue
It’s not unusual to hear comments from aunties like – ‘Ohh what have you done to your hair? What sort of clothes are these?’ Ya right! When was the last time you looked into the mirror eh? That 80s gold embroidered sari at a kids birthday party is so passé!
Fat to Flab Escapes None
Just because you are round, does not mean you can say things like ‘Oh you’re so thin. Ask mom to feed you something. or OMG you’ve become so fat! What does your mom feed you? Please stop being so sizist, for the sake of our sanity!
