In life,everything comes with a cost..
You love someone,they love back..
You help someone,they help back..
You smile at someone,they smile back..
You talk to someone,they talk back..
Everything happens either for a price or for an exchange..
The one and only thing that you get absolutely free of cost and at any goddamn hour is advices..and that's the most excruciating stuff one can ever bear with..
Be that's a family get-together or a community gathering or a public function or a mere visit,the oldies are always excited to give unsolicited tormenting advices to the younger immature ones of the breed.. Be that's about marriage,conduct,eating,sleeping,bathing,shitting,peeing,..they never run short of these gibberish.. And the unwritten code of conduct is,the younger follows the elder.. So there's no other go but to be silent..
The story doesn't end there.. The added agony is the kind of response they have to be presented with.. A smile infused listening would provoke a 'stop smiling and start acting' comment.A smug or smirk implies an 'insolent brat'.. Worse,a retaliating comment would invoke an 'arrogant urchin' remark..
I had always felt like asking them to ply their trade..There are better ways to punish someone than to make them listen to all such crappy blabbers.. But i'm sober enough to know that would lead to a court-marshal.. So i remain a very obedient child in the family..
