    Asking whether your son / daughter bought a house and if so how much did it cost. Then respond to it with their son/daughter bought a house 3 times that and hires a maid to clean.

    Sometimes comes oh your daughter doesn't work. Why is that? My daughter is a Lead in such and such company.

    Never mind the fact that daughter's choice is to be a housewife.

    In indian weddings, women on the girl's side who'd all qualify for the "aunti ji" label, shushhing one another, with a "wait..wait.. till after the mangalyadaranam (muhurat)..", said in a hissing voice. One time, innocenti me, I had asked,"..what's going to happin?", and got my elbow pinched with a "shushhh" hissed into my ear. I decided to move away. We area a mysterious people.

    My very Indian neighbour took mustard seeds then came for a sprig or two of curry leaves cos loose curry leaves dont go for fish curry(really?), ginger and after a while for some oil to fry.. I was confused by the order of things borrowed..

    Just saying!!

    Poor Maami, might have been up very early and what with the fumes and all, she must have thought you were asking for the 'pandhi'..
