Being soft-spoken is a both a boon and a (slight) curse. While everyone loves you and thinks you’re just so polite, you have to repeat yourself multiple times on multiple occasions! From your family to your friends, no one seems to understand that that is just your natural volume! “Ooncha bolo, beta” is not a line you are unfamiliar with – AT ALL. Here are 10 things you will totally get if you’re always soft-spoken!!
Not even the sabziwaala rang the bell at 6 a.m. on Sunday, demanding you buy fresh vegetables from him!
And then they just shut up. Because they’re SO in shock!

“Sunaai nahi diya. Zor se bolo, beta.”

Chances are you’ll be stranded there forever!
Because they simply could not hear you. There’s a lot of noise in coffee shops, you know.
