I Plead The Fifth

What question do you hate to be asked? Why?

My fellow Indians, well my fellow Malayalees atleast, are a very inquisitive bunch. No wait, that was waaaay too polite. I meant they are too fucking nosy for their own good. They are way too curious for their own good and do not think twice about asking questions that they should not ask. I have faced this issue with Uber drivers as well and it is awkward as I cannot get out of the car until I reach my destination.

The question that these morons tend to ask is – other questions are “where are you from?”, “where do you work?” “are you married and have kids?” – is “Why haven’t you gotten married yet?” Thanks dude I just met, when did you become my mother? This is an irritating question because I am not comfortable in answering that from people I know, forget about nosy jackasses I just met a few minutes ago.

I get so annoyed but I never say that I am pissed. I tell some lie and make them shut up for a few minutes as I curse the bugger’s parents for not having taught him some basic manners and the school teachers who failed him as well.

  1. I think us Mallus have it in our genes Next time, you should come up with an outlandish backstory about yourself. Eg: I just got out of prison after a lengthy sentence. It’s all a bit of fun (till you run into the same driver again)
