I havE this padosan who keeps borrowing items like aloos,hari mirchi,kanda( marathi 4 onions ),adrak,et al.The iritability is about the time of the demand- it is when I am in a tearing hurry- when I am readying my kid's dabba at 7 in the morning ! She is most impatient - expects me to drop all my work when she walks in & cater to her. To think of it - the kind of service she is getting from me, I doubt if she will get in any shop ! She also leaves her house keys with me but expects me tom return the same before I go out of town.Recently when Iwas going 2 pune ,I remembered that I had to return her house keys otherwise,I wouldud have to travel all the way from Pune just to return her house keys!
Yesterday, she came& borrowed potatoes & as they were developing shoots,she had the audacity to drop the shoots in my house itself ! In the evening, she came in to demand change for a 100 rupee note - she just handed over the note to my kid through the slit in the safety door-I was livid but managed to gather all my & warned her never to take the money like that-suppose she had dropped it .It might get lost with my padosan having no patience & I would have to give change as well as lose a 100 bucks -maybe God alone knows how much.
I am sure u all hav similar stories about ur padosis but then we hav 2 live with them- as a cliched saying goes- all five fingers r not the same.moreover, padosis r the only 1s who will b the 1st 2 b with us in times of sorrow as also in happier times- they r the 1s with whom v can share the ups n downs of life before others even come 2 know about it.also ,i am sure even my actions wud hav irritated my padosis sometime r the other.so having padosis is an occupational hazard !
