We would all agree that Indian aunties just don’t deal well with awkward silences. As a species, they are often known to make it 10x more weird with awkward small talk! Especially when they see a 20-something girl, you can almost see their radar go into a bleeping frenzy and all sorts of nonsensical questions find their way out, like that broccoli sandwich after three extra drinks. From your weight, to your love interests, to your shaadi plans, to your school grades, they want to get the full details on it all! Here are some of those annoying small talk questions that simply make us scream, “None of your business!”
