It is really difficult not to offend any of my friends with this tag, passed on so generously(!!) by Mad Momma :
Food for thought
Chewing gum reminds me of buffalos. The "chewer "also acquires a very cocky look somehow. So please do not do it in my presence , if my opinion of you counts that is.
Foul/ garlic breath- a real put off specially when it belongs to the beautician working on you
If you come home to eat I will not coax and cajole you into a larger or a second helping. When you say enough, I understand it as enough. I forget that you may be too shy and assume you like to be pampered.
Look me in the eye
I do not think any excuse will do for a perpetually unclean house. You have to make some time some how.
When you wear a sari, pray do not show your belly button, especially when the belly is like an award winning melon and the button is more like a crater. Each dress should be worn the way it needs to be.
When real women( not the film stars) show cleavage, I am at my judgmental best. Cocktail party or at home or at the office, venue does not matter.
I am "amused " by people who spend hours colour coordinating and dressing up ( that too for a night show in a theatre) . I end up feeling it is at the cost of their work/ home/ children. But I also do not like it when a person is unkempt with uncombed hair, unironed clothes or sports shoes, at a meeting
If you wear a bindi and flowers (gajra) with your capris, I find that hard to digest
If a person wore more than two chains, I would think they look like an ad for Khazaana jewellery. I reckon they are flaunters with hardly any taste.There is a reverse side to it, If you talk Indian music & dance and wear a Kalakshetra sari with a mis matched blouse, I will see you as classy and arty.
Say it as it is
Sweet talking as teenage girls( and some over grown ones) are prone to irks me - "choow chweet", "anyways", " i loooooooove ....."all a big fat NO
Dudes who punctuate their sentences with invectives for effect- complete turn off.
Memsaab mentality- I cannot stand healthy women or men who boss around and expect to be looked after. A thank you is a must even if you have paid for the service.
I hate it when elders " expect" and even ask to be prostrated before. Respect needs to be earned not demanded.
I do not like the parents of kids who disrespect their parents.
"Wife jokes" are not funny particularly from a man. I wonder how he treats his wife.
Women who constantly crib about their MIL or their DIL, I see it as a failure on their side. I wonder if they have tried to adjust.
I hate propogaters of "Madrasi" stereotypes. Get a life.
I think I better stop now, lest I be judged.
