[Humor] - Shopping Mall crowd - Decoded

Staring shotguns - They are everywhere, one blaring stare, followed by next. Desperate uncles, jobless shoppers, housewives, nice-looking girls, security personnel, sweeping staff, staff from branded showrooms where even a housefly would hesitate to visit and not to forget the maniacs who peep into the toilets they can’t use. Did you know that the latest fad for a picnic spot for school kids is ‘visiting an overcrowded mall?

You stare like this, stranger? 

Here is my answer. Digest this!

Clumsy kids - Kids running around with shopping trolleys in the madding crowd are a regular phenomenon in malls, especially when their moms are busy buying lipsticks and Kajals. Some kids do acrobatics by running in the opposite side of the travelators, which makes you want to hit the kids’ careless parents heads with a hard rock. Yes, one has to blame the grownups for such unbothered attitude. I feel bad for those parents who let go of their kids and later find them via announcements in bad English.

Kids do this even at the mall

Amused aunties – Pairs of iridescent eyes peering at you, only to realize you saw them, would make up the stare into an alert smile. That awkward moment, how freaking horrible! Run! Hide!

Grumbling Gluttons – I hate when people stare at my food, especially, when I am licking down the dead set delicious butter scotch praline ice-cream at the mall’s best ice cream outlet. All these gluttons appear from nowhere, this bunch of hungry log heads look at your ice cream and drool as if they never saw food for decades. No, I don’t pity them. Not a chance!

Otherworldly couples – Newlyweds, PDA* lovers, Young lovers, they are in a different world altogether. Yes, of course, I understand all that mushy stuff going on, but they cannot topple my shopping bag and break the ketchup bottle in it. After all, who is the one that is embarrassed in the end? Me! They just go on with their xoxos!!! Grrrrrrrrrr! There is another thing which they find romantic – swooning as they go up the escalator/ travelators on their loved ones. An ultimate #facepalm moment at the mall this is.
OK. OK. That is enough!

Window shoppers – These are carefree shoppers like me. We don’t disturb anyone. We don’t buy anything; unless there is a dire need to buy something and it is salary day. Every mall in every city needs us; we bring prosperity and good luck. We create a palatial aura.

Brand babes - You do not want to bump into one of these babes, neither do you want to unknowingly eavesdrop when they are talking to their boyfriend/ husband/ partner/ friend. Everything except their language is branded.

That's all folks! I tried to bring in some humor element in my posts for the first time by adding GIFs. Hope you like it :)


  1. :) hahahahaha.. yeaaaaa... window shopper :P

    1. Hahahaaaa ... Yea... You too right? ;)

  2. Lol :P loved it... Apt pics too :D

    1. Thank you Aishuuu :) happy you visited my bloggy :)

  3. Hope you like it? I loved it. This staring business – We thought it happens only to us because we are coming from USA. It happens in Chennai a lot. In such case, I go straight to him/her (and ask in Tamil) “How are you doing? Everything OK with you”. Almost 100% of the time, they just turn and walk away.

    Another one I want to add is these people want to listen in on other people’s conversation. In shops, I have noticed when me and my wife are talking, I have seen people very visibly listening to our conversation.

    1. Yayyyyy glad you loved it SG , more than glad in fact :) thank you...
      You got some guts I must say. These gossip mongers are so annoying ://

  4. One more thing. When guests are at home, and the phone rings, the home owner picks up the phone and talks for a few minutes and hangs up. Every guest is looking at him wanting to know who called. Some even ask who that call is from.. Worst yet, the home owner volunteers -- Hi Hi HI en friend sundaresan kooptaan. Avunukku konjam panam kadanaa venumam. (Then a whole new discussion starts if Sundaresan is an honest guy and the merits and demerits of giving loan to a friend.)

    A relative of ours was visiting USA and staying in our home for a few days. I got a phone call and I had a conversation with the caller. When I hang up, the guest asked “yaaru phonela”. My wife was also there. I replied to him it was my girl friend.

    1. But it is appreciable that 'kadan' nu sonnakapramum they continue the conversation. Some people vanish after hearing that word. My dad always mockingly says "po da nu solarthuku badhila konjam kadan ketta avane pesama poiduvan' heheee :)

  5. Heightssss! Paavam Mr.Sundaresan, avare decimate pannirpanga polarke?!

  6. ahh the staring ones ... what should I say... now I feel strange why people aren't staring... am I so normal :P :P
    loved the ending - when you say posh except the language, totally agree with it.

    1. lol haan, it never happens that people aren't staring these days. Even in traffic signals they look at other people, other people's cars/ bikes/ wives ufff it is beyond belief :/

      Yea Princess, the posh ones are posh until they open their mouths :P :D
      Thank you Princess :)

  7. Note that this Omega Planet Ocean 600 Origina Replica Breitling For Women, as its name suggests, now enjoys the name of Master Chronometer. This is one of the very first Rolex Submarine to fulfill the drastic criteria defined by METAS.The Ocean Planet is one of the most 1:1 Replica Rolex Watches of all divers.After seducing generations of gentlemen, she turned to the female Hermes handbags with beautiful rose gold models.

Make Up and Me (Not Me)

They say people who don't know to dance have two left feet. Although, I might have two left feet myself, what is more interesting is I might actually have two left hands.

Okay, I understand that's funny but here is why:

If you are a girl or a boy or a boy who looks like a girl, you would probably know that it is a thing now to have a makeup blog or vlog or youtube channel in your name. I bumped into this world of cosmetics, beauty blogs and tutorials only a few months ago. For those who don't know about it, let me tell you, it is a crazy, ruthless and unbelievable world.

Heard of these? Snail slime masks, Placenta hair masks, Seaweed bathing creams, Microblading.... and endless other such insane stuff. These are insane but quite popular among beauty enthusiasts and they even swear by the benefits of such products.

These are otherwise cringe-worthy products in my world. I use gramflour+tumeric face mask, Coconut oil hair mask and  a normal, cheap bathing soap and my skin i…

'Yo-Yo' Tribe - A Meme

OK. Time for some fun, folks! Walk down the streets of any city, you are sure to find weirdos of all kinds. I am not being judgmental here, but trust me, there are a bunch of people who think of themselves as the coolest tribe on earth and the cool-ness is defined by their hair-dos and hair styles.  Let me give you some examples here...

Beginning the meme with a Zen-like look. I should admit that this look is more 'yogic' than weird. But only until he doesn't untie that bun on top! I name them the Zen tribe! :D
This style screams attention; attention from railroad signals to be specific. There are so many parallel tracks for trains to ply! The Awesome Railroad Tribe!

Well, well, I only get to see between my strands of hair and this is called 'Looking- through-the-hair-look'. "Are you smiling? winking? blushing? I don't have a clue!"

"Fine, I am growing a pine forest in my head and yes, it is fall time and some trees are starting to change color. I be…

Ever Yours, Vincent.

Never in a thousand years did I think I would be obsessed with a late, delusional psycho who was also an exceptional artist and a noteworthy character with a peculiar interest for romance.
My affair started around 8 years back; a time when I had started writing and blogging for the first time. I visited this pop-up museum of contemporary art which showcased Vincent Van Gogh’s choicest documentaries. Many of his famous paintings were also on display. That was the day I fell in love, with his art, with the way he loved, with the way he expressed himself before he fell into life’s inevitable trap.
The beautiful yellowish hues that dominated his paintings, the sunflowers, the potato eaters and the starry night which comes alive in my dreams every night. Those letters he wrote his brother Theo with care, love and a pinch of attitude. That unconditional brotherly love, that aimless love he showed his friend and mentor Gauguin, that love he showed the random women he saw and painted, that lo…
