Pakistani Life.

Posted by Dinky Mind on Wednesday, June 23, 2004 in ,
There is a sale on any item, you buy 100 of them.

You have a 'Singer Brother' sewing machine at home.

Your mother has a minor disagreement with her (or your dad's) sister and doesn't talk to her for ten years.

You call an older person you've never met before "uncle".

You hide everything from your parents.

Your mother does everything for you if you are male.

You do all the housework and cooking if you are female! (dont u just hate that girls?)

Everyone is a family friend.

Everyone always called you for help on homework.

You know no one who has studied music.

You went to a university as far away from home as possible.

You like the meat well done.

You fight over who pays the dinner bill.

You say you hate Indian films(/songs) but secretly watch(/hear) them with your parents.

You teach Westerners swearwords in your language (yes, you know who you are!)

You order Indian food in your own language to impress the people you're with but the waiters don't understand you.

You avoid public places when with a member of the opposite sex, especially if there is an acquaintance within a 250 miles radius.

You always say "open the light" instead of "turn the light on".

You're walking out of customs with your trolley at the airport and you see all twenty-five members of your family who have come to pick you up.

You get very upset when airlines refuse to accept your luggage which is just 80 lbs. overweight.

You go back to your parents' country and people treat you like a member of...the royal family.

You ask your dad a simple question and he tells you story of how he had to walk miles barefoot just to get to school.

(For females) You're parents would freak out if you wore a crop top baring your midriff...but wearing a sari is perfectly acceptable!

Your brother had no curfew while you had to be home at 11pm

Your parents have nicknames but only because people they work with just stop when trying to read their names

You have annoying nicknames like Chotu, Guddu, Munni, Nannhi, Chicku, Baby,or Babblu(lots more to add here)

Your parents call all your friends "Beta" whether they are Pakistani or not

Your parents are panicking if you aren't married and you turn 25

Either you really like Pakistanis of the opposite sex or you can't stand them

Your mother measures wealth in gold and diamonds

Your parents drink 6 cups of tea a day

Your friends could not explain your religion to someone if they tried

You could not explain your religion to someone if you tried

You have cousins you have never met, whose names you don't know, but who insist they're related to you, even though they bear NO resemblance to...anyone YOU know.

Your parents push the concept of an arranged marriage on you and try and demonstrate how well it works whenever they're not fighting.

Your parents compare you to all of their friends' kids.

You notice that whenever you go to another Pakistani's house, your parents always talk about work and business.

The second you pull out of someone's driveway, your parents start talking...about them.

No one ever seems to call ahead of time to say they are coming over for a visit.
