As the popular phrase goes, the word Mother-in law can be actually re-arranged to form the word Woman Hitler. And no matter what our society evolves and develops into, some stereotypes of Indian Mother in laws keep cropping up forever!!
Unfortunately we can only choose the kind of husband we want; but not the Mother-in law. Listed below are some of the traits of the doting Indian mother-in laws,
1). They drab on and on and on and on about how to raise a perfect child, while the very fragment of their failure in being able to raise one will stand besides watching the same
(Tsk, tsk Your Husband of course :D)
2). Showing off like they know everything under the sun.
3). Constantly bringing into the conversations about ‘Our times’
4). Trying to put down your culinary expertise in front of the whole family.
5). Often criticizing your skills in raising your off-springs.
What? You feed him Nachos every day? OMG!! So unhealthy.
6). Interfering in your financial indulges now and then, and questioning about every buck spent.
How can you spend so much on Shoes? Learn to be conservative.
7). Not lending an ear when you want to talk something to them.
8). Becoming your kid’s favorite by spoiling them with junkies and munchies too often.
9). Acting like they know their son better than you (Saying he is just like his father 😀 )
10). To top it all, taking (read Snatching) credit for the success of their son’s promotion or achievements and stating so because he takes after her.
But in the end, they would pose like :D, Yeah we nailed it!!
