17 Reasons Parents Are Responsible For Every Desi Kid's Trust Issues
So much betrayal.
Because they always, always lie about the time when they wake you up.
Because they tell you you're free to choose your subjects*
Because they casually throw around threats like this all day.
Because they summon us to the table saying dinner is getting cold, but serve it 10 minutes later.
Because when we expected cookies, we got this shit.
And when we expected ice cream in the ice cream container, we got dal.
Because they told us we're "just leaving, beta" when they intended to stay another three hours at weddings.
Because dad said smoking is bad, until you found out he started at 14.
Because they said "It's the hard work that counts" but the report card is what truly mattered.
Because they brag about how they were the best students ever, but never show you their report cards.
Because some of us were told as children that we could get a pet "next year" and we're in our twenties now without a pet.
Because daily, we discover our relatives know all our embarrassing stories. Through our parents.
Because they'll find a way to bring up our "behaviour" when our friends are over.
Because they suddenly "never lie" when it comes to our convenience.
Because even though we tell them our hangout plans days in advance, they always claim we never told them.
Because all the money guests gave us when we were kids was definitely spent by them.
And because when they say this, it's actually a trap.
