10 Annoying 'Small Talk' Aunties Make – Just WHY?!

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!”

1. “Beta, shaadi kab karne ka plan hai? Dekho {insert random relative’s name} ki bhi shaadi ho gayi hai, ab tumhari baari hai!”

You’ll find it funny, aunty, but my answer is similar to your son’s at the moment.

Seriously? I met you just last month!!

Apply this anti-ageing cream by Olay (Rs 231) and look young forever because you know aunties like that!

3. “Kitni patli ho gayi ho! Why don’t you eat anything? Oh wait! You must be on a diet again!”

Remember your childhood days when your teacher made you zip your mouth and throw the key away. Let’s do that again, please?
