Don't Ask Me!


I am trying to combine the A-Z challenge with Indispire topic for this week.


DISCLAIMER: I just don't hate being asked these questions. I HATE them.
 The 10 questions are
1. When are you getting married?
 Suddenly the whole Universe of aunties has only one concern-My marriage!Their faces somehow contort to a big question mark as soon as they see me dying to shoot the question. After several such encounters I keep my answer at the nip of my tongue. I usually say, " Not until you stop asking." Zuban pe rakhe lagam( Centre Fresh tagline) :P

2. What is your salary?
I do not understand the motive behind this question. Even if I told you, I wouldn't for any reason give you a single penny.

3. What is your weight?
Not only is this question embarrassing, but the suggestions that follow according to whether you are fat or slim is a real pain in the neck.

4. What time do you sleep?
Like, how would this piece of information ever help you? How? Why would you want to know my sleep patterns?I am Batman, can you deal with it?

5. Can you please like my picture/status?
Ah! One of those new age tortures. People who put several selfies/ nonsense status messages and go around asking people to see and like it, are so annoying. You don't know people like these? Really? That's because you are one among them. :P

6. Who is the boy in the picture?
All the nosey cousins/ aunties who suffocated us on Facebook all this while have now migrated to Whatsapp also. I change my profile picture to one with my friend who is a guy and in the next 10 minutes I get messages asking, who he is , what he is doing, where is he from so on and so forth. Arghhhh!

7. Which caste/religion ?
I get really upset when I am asked this question. I am a human being respect me for that. I never generally answer this question.

8. Ma'am do you want a credit card?
Ayyo! The bank people just can't take a No! How difficult is it to understand a simple NO? The timing of their calls?Makes content for another blog post. Grrrr...

9. At a retail store, How can I help you Ma'am?
It is really sweet when the store assistant offers to help once. Then they make it a habit asking, "Ma'am how can I help you, How can I help you?" More than thrice,I let my dark side rise.

10. I am finally comfortable in my bed and someone asks ," Can you please turn off the lights ? "
NO a big fat NO!

  8. 9th one. I hate that very very much. It's like an intrusion while I am happily browsing through the shop's product, silently saying-"You don't have any rights to stare at things here." :/
