Surprise surprise, these days we are told that screen time is bad for us but really what parents are cribbing about is that they want their phones back from their kids, so that they can be on the phones themselves.

Yes of course parents would love their kids to eat their saag, tinda and kaddu but at end of a long day at work, guess who is ordering for pizza delivery?

Ahem..parents last time I checked you were surfing the net in the middle of your work and therefore never getting done with your work.

Just last Sunday you were doing some online shopping for things you don’t really need and have so many clothes that you don’t really wear so please ease up on the lecture when I want to go to the mall ? And do I really need to be made to feel guilty about how ‘privileged’ I am? Last time I checked your closet didn’t look like it felt very guilty.

Late for for school again because guess who hit the snooze alarm and then gave me my my breakfast in the car?

It wasn’t me that lost her cool with the Aquaguard service wala when he came at lunch time and said you had to get a new contract !
