Remember the AIB Roast which had released back in 2015 where a bunch of celebrities and comedians roasted each other? A lot of the digs that were taken at each other in that comedy show were extremely savage. But they weren’t as savage as the digs desi dads take at their kids on a daily basis.
So many of us have grown up hearing our parents say that they have wasted their money on our education because it bore no fruits. This was especially heard on the day of exam results, but sometimes they used to sprinkle the ‘burn’ here and there when they saw us enjoying life and having a good time in general.
And sometimes, the digs came when you least expected it. Here’s an example. A user on Reddit took to the subreddit r/JEENEETards to share a screenshot of a WhatsApp conversation with his dad. The father asked his son if he wants a Rs 666 mobile pack to be recharged on his number.
To this, the son responds by asking him not to waste money by recharging his phone. To this, the father says that they are already wasting money on his studies and that spending on a simple recharge is “peanuts”.
Have a look:
Here’s the Reddit post:
Several people online shared a good laugh on reading the chat. However, many couldn’t fathom how come the guy speaks to his father on WhatsApp, because most of our dads don’t send anything besides the ‘thumbs up’ emoji! 😛
Only a thick skin will help you stay calm through such verbal burns! 😉
