The Elevator THING

I hate elevators.

Yes. Elevators according to me are the wierdest places to be on Mother Earth. Like who would want to spend few minutes of his entire life stuck up amid a bunch of complete strangers? 

Why don't people understand? If he has to go to the 4th floor from the 2nd, why does he come all the way to the 1st floor, pick me up and then head towards the 4th? Like are we bonded in anyway that you are showing me this concern?  

Why is it that people forget their existence and stand like a bizzare statue until their destined floor arrives? Their senses are regained only when the door is about to close and they exit giving free elbow and knee massages to their fellow mates.

Why? Why do people have to talk in ear-splitting tones in that small room? Like no one is interested in your newly wed brother's honeymoon trip or on your left leg which had a spasm the day before or on how bad your wife cooks.

Why is it that people do not use deodorants? For God's sake they were invented for people like you. Please understand and consider the health and well being of the fellow humans.

Why do poeple face the other way and stand in that extremely awkward position facing the rest of us? Don't you understand, you have to turn the other way around and not let your awful breath on the person standing in front of you. He has a family too. His son must be waiting for him to bring that remote control car that he had promised a week ago. So please. Do not kill him!

And what do you mean by 'STOP, STOP, STOP', when you hadn't even selected the floor where you are destined to be in? Do you expect the lift to get converted into a smart device and read your voice command? Or do you expect us to put our precious lives at stake and hang midway by stopping it for you? Or do you expect us to open the door and throw you out without worrying about where your bones would land?

And lastly..
Like why can't a person control his gassy tummy for a period of 2 minutes? Why the hell do you expect others to enjoy getting a sneak peak of what you had early that morning? For God's sake these gassy people must be banished from this planet I say.

And it goes on...

So these were some of the experiences I had come across. Have you faced such annoying situations in an elevator? If so then you are free to rant about it below ;)

    Most hilarious blog I have read recently. Made my day.

  2. Yes. I have experienced most of it. Especially the loud noise and bad breath one. ��

  3. Hahaa very funny but actually it's all very true, especially when people are ready to travel in the crowded lift rather than walking to a single floor with the Goddamn stairs.

    1. Happens. I told you life is complicated πŸ˜‚

  4. Exactly..especially those people who don't use deodorants ...ugggh can't tolerate that

    1. That's why everyone should learn deep sea diving. :p

  5. Yessss elevator.... it's really hard..πŸ˜“

  6. very true. especially when parents with kids enter, most of them dont pay attention to check if the hands and legs of their little ones are away from the door. people must be more responsible I say.

Hoarding until... Forever?!

That 2 year old pallazo pants gifted to you by your sister-in-law, which you pretty much know you have outgrown. That 4 year old magazine lying there just because it holds the picture of your favorite actor who is a dad of a cute little toddler now. (Yay! Hearty congrats to him). The 5 and a half year old blanket that once decorated your hostel room and was the only room decor you ever ever owned- that sometimes role-played as a curtain, a food mat and a floor mat even (yuk!) lying there with few strands of thread on the verge of detachment but still clinging on to tight.

Whenever I think of ways to part with them, an invisible hand from nowhere seizes them all and puts them back to place, convincing me with valid bulletins which confirms their place for another 3 years.

Those nail paints and lippers that have successfully crossed their expiry dates but you don't just feel like discarding them away. Like.. How can I be so rude???? I once pampered them like my own descendants and …

3am thoughts

Sometimes I wonder how people get so intense and dour during this part of the day and night routine. Like what's so special about this time?

Ordinary people become poets all of a sudden, the guy next door acts like a philosophical thinker of all times, people in love feel their hormones gushing in an extraordinary pace, babies kick start their inflating metabolism rates and butt in on their dozing parents, people with broken insides wet their pillows in torment metastasizing the woe to every other cell in the body...
And then...

I sit there as an undernourished esurient hungry monster, raiding through the house for some nibbles and munchies..
Hmmmmmmpphhh priorities...

So what kind of 3am person are u??

Random thoughts about ... nothing in particular

Have you ever been in the state where your mind gets piled up with insane, uncategorized thoughts about random things in life which you do not find a platform to rant about?
Well.. Here are some of those "Random Rants"...

When you express your opinion in a group and suddenly realize that no one was listening and you try to act relaxed and casual, though you felt like the most dumb and imbecile person sitting there.

When you exit your 18page word document after a tedious edit and give a "No" involuntarily to the "Do you want to save the changes made?" and then.. after realization, experience that mini heartattack.

Have you ever had the urge to shout this out.. "Dr.Batra .. I definitely do not need your hair transplants nor your special hair loss treatments nor your homeopathic hair fall therapy. So... Stop spamming my inbox !!"

When ever the damn light goes off, your ill-mannered uncivil mind deliberately pushes you into thoughts of ghosts, whic…

That restless sunday evening

Will he reach on time?
Or should I call him to confirm? Oh God! To hell with the city traffic.. I could hear honks here.. there.. everywhere.. It's a jam. Wait.. What is this? Clouds from nowhere. Oh man! Is it gonna rain now? I sat there biting my finger nails with a trillion thoughts in my mind.

It was one beautiful Sunday evening. Mom and dad had a family function to attend and there I was left jaded and alone. After a while of debate between the good me and the bad me, I decided to get myself some company to spend the evening.

My heartbeat, still raising with every second as the minute hand raced towards the estimated time. What am I supposed to do? Should I call him or atleast send a text? I took my mobile and checked for messages. There weren't any. My smile slowly flattened. All of a sudden a grave silence spread across my soul. I started walking hither and thither restlessly with my eyes fixed on the wall clock.

In a few minutes..
*Ting tong*
I jumped off from the cou…
