We understand you work in tight deadlines, but when you want a interview consider giving a notice more than 10 mins?
We really don’t want to be telling you something we shouldn’t
Someone who works too
Dear People of the Neighborhood,
I know you are very religious, believe in God and like to pray but all I can hear in my house from past three days is “Swamiye Ayyappa Saranam. Swamiye Saranam Ayyappa ! Swamiye Saranam Ayyappa”
so much so that this afternoon I saw O chanting it in his sleep. In the name of Ayyappa will you please keep your prayers to your house
One who will play “I am bad, I am bad” at full volume next time you play Ayyappa on loudspeaker
PS: its not just about ayyappa before people pounce on me, its about every religious festival we seem to take as a right to bother others
You can read the rest of my letter to random people here so good laughs
That glass that you shoved up in the corner of the kitchen inside a container of old things that we don’t use is a heirloom of my family passed down three generations, my mum used it, I used it and ojas did too when he was a child and I thought I told you that when mum handed it over to it.
Please I request you to leave that glass alone
PS: I know I know dont pounce on me saying she is not random person the title just went with me regular rant posts
PPS: I don’t rant about her often here but sometimes it just helps to get things out of the system so lets take it that way
Normally when I write these letters I have only thing to say but my love for you is so much that I have multiple things to tell u, so lets get started shall we
Yes when u suddenly without informing put an injection in my mouth it hurts and I may shudder and no it doesn’t mean that I am afraid of injections and even if I am there is no need for you to laugh at it
I do not like let me make it clear by saying again I do not like to stare at a person who is making faces and digging into my mouth to work on my teeth, I prefer to rather close my eyes and no you can’t tell me “Open your eyes I want you to see what I am doing” Damn why?
Yes I am nervous and its paining when u are trying to extract the tooth and when the heavy duty instrument in your hand slips from your hand and hits my upper teeth and lips TWO times I might react, it actually pains you know sir and when you say “There is no need to panic, its just a slip of instrument” watch out my hand sometimes has a tendency to slip and hit the opposite person’s face too
And why don’t you decide that whether you need a stich on my wound or not once and for all… after your working on my teeth for 1 hour trying to extract it, its really irritating standing there and listening to the fact that I don’t really need a stich but you will put one anyways so that it feels faster, damn you were lucky that my tooth was paining so much that I couldnt talk else God knows what the result would have been
still in pain and suffering
PS: thanks for the concern people he is NOT my regular dentist, my regular dentist is a really good guy but was travelling for a month so I had no choice but to go to another one.. this one was suggested by a friend but sigh as u see was hopeless
Dear Uncle I met in the park while walking
Yes I do freelancing from home and to you it might seem like passing time and make you say the following statement “ohh but thats not like work at all u know, kya poora din nighty main ghoomtein raho and do what u want to, what kind of work is that” but just because I dont go sit in a swanky office doesnt mean I dont do work and even if I don’t its my decision
Next time before you say anything to me please think I might drop into your house to borrow a nightie from auntie
Someone who knows how to talk back even when wearing a nightie
PS: This post and a discussion today on FB with starry made me remind that I haven’t posted this on blog yet
Dear Pretending to be very Close Aunt of N,
I know that you think that you are the best and kindest person in this whole world because you counsel two or three poor women about their children but dear aunt that doesn’t really give u an authority to pass a judgement on any and every child
Yes my child goes to a Montessori called XXX and no it wasn’t started FOR mentally challenged kids ONLY and thanks for showing your concern and asking that is everything fine with my child
Next time please be careful I might tell you what is not fine WITH YOU at ur face
Yours obedient daughter in law,
Edited to Add : people not to misunderstand the post, I have absolutely nothing against special kids infact they hold a special place in my heart I have worked with them for almost 3 years in a school and each class in Ojas’s school has a special kid a fact which I am very proud of but I have a problem with the whole attitude of the lady and the fact that she was so rude without even knowing the facts
Dear 5yr old child travelling with us in the train and his mother,
U might think that you are Ben-10 and spider man and superman and the president of India all rolled into one that when u say that u have won the game it means u have won it. It might or might not be true nonethless it doesn’t give you a right to kick my child or any other child in the train in the eye with your leg. And incase we think that you are fool enough not to understand that its wrong I think your mom is intelligent enough to make you sorry if nothing else.
Yours someone who might hold that leg in the air next time and force your mom to make you say sorry
PS: I know I know I am on a break but this had to be written to take it out of my system
Dear wife of son of my mil’s uncle’s brother’s aunt (ok u get I don’t know who she was )
U might have seen me on my wedding day when I was a bride and you might think that knowing me like that you have become very close to me but dear I take my own sweet time to know people and declare them as buddies and even after that I take even more longer to discuss personal matters like my sex life. So it would be very helpful if u don’t tell me that what days should I make out with my hubby to have the second child I MUST have now.
Yours sexually aware who might give u a good lesson on what u can do next time
PS: why do I feel I am magnet for such jerks or does everyone encounter them?
(un) Dear biker on the road,
I know you think u look cool standing in the middle of the road helmet in the front, dark sunglasses covering your eyes and a mobile phone tucked to your ears but please be considerate to the people who want to use the road for what its meant driving.
If you don’t wish to move in the side on your own atleast don’t shout when someone honks and asks you to, next time they might shout back at you.
Your well wisher who might not behave like one next time
