No matter what excuses you may have ready to avoid family functions, you may still find yourself attending a few. Sometimes it’s your mom who blackmails you to accompany her and on other occasions your cousins plead you to join in!
And, while you are there trying to have fun, you will always have some relatives, chacha, taaya, mausi, maama, who may ask you a few silly questions or make some comments that would make you want to disappear in a jiffy. Here are a few of those hilarious moments. So laugh a little while you can!
Uh-oh! This question totally makes you want the earth to swallow you whole because you are too tired of people doing the social service of finding you a boy or a girl!
For someone who does not know how to dance, this is the time you wish you knew how to disappear into thin air, or even better, become invisible. This situation is one of the most embarrassing ones during a family function.
No. No. No! You did not go to the wedding so that your parents and all your relatives took it upon themselves to find you a perfect match. Urghh!
Some relatives are very nosey and want to know your all about your bank balance. It’s alright. Just let them keep guessing and say “I earn enough to pay my bills for now”. We assure you they will never ask you this stupid question again.
Yup. I did that just so you could say that to me and body shame me for being thin now and fat earlier! Oh God, there is just no escaping from such irritating people.
Why not! Please decide the date and invite yourself for all the functions.
Oh well, I invited the pimples home for dinner aunty and they just chose to stay for a while. I mean, how funny is this question? Pimples happen due to natural reasons. How are we supposed to stop them and how does it even matter? People do not stop judging you and it’s up to you what you do; be affected or become immune to their silly notions of beauty.
Oh, great! Do you want me to dance then? Some relatives like to boast about their kids as if they are the only ones who have big fat paychecks!
Of couse aunty. I will sacrifice eating food so that you can gossip with the other aunties, while I drag my feet around looking for your beloved husband (who, by the way, is outside in a car, enjoying a quick drink with the other uncles). Such is life, dearies.
Do you really think I am going to tell you that? Great, best of luck for eliciting the ‘truth’ out of my mouth, aunty.

Well, we think family functions are really fun, but like everything else in the world, they comes with downsides, especially when relatives want to either know a lot about you or pin you down! However, like we said, do not lose your cool and enjoy your time as much as you can. Because your relatives might be irritating, but they are still family!
