Everyone LOVES the festive season because it’s full of good foods and fun and chilling with your friends and having all your family come together. But there’s a downside to all of this, “Mehmaan Nawaazi”, i.e. hospitality of guests in the house, becomes a responsibility and as the apple of your parent’s eye, it is up to you to help clean the house.
But, you don’t really want to do that, do you? We figured that we could give you some excuses that you could use to get away with not cleaning anything.
“I’ll go buy the sweets”
This has to be perfectly timed. And once you’re out, you can go chill with your friends. When you come back home, you can always say that the shops ran out (it happens!) and you had to go to 4 different shops and then an old man needed help carrying stuff and they raised a good kid, so you helped out.
“I’m making noise cancelling stuff for the pets!”
If you have a pet at home, this is perfect because your parents know how much your pet suffers from the Diwali sounds. You would be doing a noble deed.
“I’m working from home, don’t disturb me”
If you have a job, this will work wonders. Why would office call you if it wasn’t an emergency? And so, you HAVE to finish this task. For the cherry on the top, say that you’re trying to work as fast as possible so you can spend time with family at night.
“I’m sick” *cough cough*
Wrap a cloth around a glass of hot water and then place it on your head. Make sure your eyes are watery. Take the cloth off your head and call your mom to tell her that you feel feverish. Tell her that you’ll feel better if you rest. and sleep your day away.
Because it’s true. You’ve been up all night binge-watching the new season of Daredevil and all you want to do is sleep.
But, honestly, if you try this, you might get THE GLARE because you’ve been on your ass all day.
Also, no matter what you say, you HAVE to help out in some way, so suck it up and push everything under the carpet because that’s the only cleaning your lazy ass can do.
