3. You can talk to me about anything!
Beware! It’s a trap. Don’t fall for “You can talk to me about anything”. It basically means that they want to know some gossip about you which they suspect but need to confirm.
4. Kaun tha wo ladka
You go to meet your "friend" and mom drops you off. You return home and she is standing there with hands on her waist, “Kaun Tha Wo Ladka?”
5. Ye koi time hain ghar aane ka
Moms and Dads have this habit of exaggerating the things. Ye Koi Time Hain Ghar Aane Ka and you are like, “Dad it’s just 9…”
6. Log kya kahega bete
I want to color my hair. Log kya kahenge. I want to become an artist. Log kya kahenge. I want to breathe. Log Kya kahenge. Whutt??
7. Kyu chahiye itne paise
Dad, can I have 10 rupees? Kyu Chahiye Itne Paise. *Awkward silence*
8. Hamesha phone pe laga rehta hain ya Facebook pe
For parents, our phones and Facebook are the biggest fusses ever. And seriously, we have no solution to it. We can’t leave our phone and we can’t stay out of Facebook. Best Solution- Introduce your Mom to Whatsapp and see if she doesnt get addicted to it!
9. What Did You Just Say?
Something that parents say when they don't want you to say the thing that you just said. Huh?
10. Beta Bas Graduation Kar Le, Beta Bas Shadi Karle And So On
There is no end to their wishes. Beta bas graduation karle, beta bas shadi karle, beta bas marja…
11. Khana Banana Nahi Ata, Sasural Me Kya Karegi?!
Your Rotis Are Not Round; No One Will Ever Marry You! How come my culinary skills decide my fate?
12. Where are you going?
You are in a really good mood, you are about to meet your friends and as you are just about to leave the house, this question is thrown at you to catch you off guard.
13. Why Your Friends Have More Marks Than You?
Parents, can you please stop comparing us to other kids? Because that would be very nice of you if you could. Thank you!
