What a pathetic day it was...!

What a pathetic day it was...!

A Story by Rahul Bakolia
"

Most embarrassing moment in front of parents.

"

In the early week of this very month [December 2018], I spent a couple of days in my home town. When I was about to leave Bikaner for my hometown, I had no any clean backpacks and my trolley shared the same status like my backpacks.

So, In the hour of need, I asked my friend to lend his backpacks for this brief vacation. Fortunately, He didn’t disappoint me.


My dearest mother has an awesome habit of hiding some money in my bag when I am about to leave my sweet home for another city.

The regular scene when I reach my destination,

Me: Maa! I reached.

Mother: Good! I know your father gives you enough money to fulfill your necessity. Search your bag intelligently, you will find some money from my side too.

“Maa! You don’t need to give me any extra money”�" My evergreen reply.

Mother: Stop this drama! I know you are dancing in joy.


Last week when I was about to leave my home. My mother was packing my bag and she was ready with her money to hide in my bag. Meanwhile, My father and I were enjoying a delicious breakfast.

Maa: Rahul! What is this thing in your bag?

I was lost in the sweetness of Kheer (Indian dish) but my mother’s angry question sounds like a scary tornado. So, I shifted my focus from that sweet dish to my sweetest mother.

“This is a packet of Condom”�" My father replied.

I was numb. Desperately looking for a reply. My parents were staring me like a famished predator.

“Have you lost your speaking power”�" My mother slapped me with this question.

I wish I had a superpower of invisibility or I wish I had a time machine.

“Rahul has lost his voice. Do you care to say anything to your spoiled son”�" This time my father was on her target.

Papa: Never use condoms from cheap brands. You are a son of a medical shop owner, you must have an idea about better brands.

Needless to say, My mother turned into a volcano after my father’s words of wisdom.

Maa: Aaah! Like father like son, You guys proved it again. I won’t say anything to you, and do whatever you wanna do. Good or Bad! Who am I to you?

I took my phone and called my friend and turned on the speaker without wasting a single second.

Me: Bro! I found a packet of condoms in your bag. Should I keep it for you or dump it in a dustbin?

Friend: Are you crazy? Return that packet with my bag when you come back here. Why don’t you gift me an extra packet from your medical shop?

I ended that life-saver call.

My mother’s facial expression was similar to this movie-dialogue,

Main Toh Tumhe Harami Samjhne Lagi Thi Par Tu Toh Devata Nikla. (I had begun to understand you as a b*****d but you got the god.) 


During this unforgettable embarrassing incident for life, She forgot to hide some money in my bag.

Aaah! What a pathetic day it was.

Love this story which unfolded in front of my eyes. I can imagine the embarrassment and your dear Mother exploding like a volcano. You really capture this scene very well indeed and the feelings of those involved. And the ending, what a disappointment for you. Said incident made your Mum forgetful.

"My mother slapped me with this question."

I had a spontaneous sense memory of bein' slapped by mother's voice...many....many times.

This is very funny and a cautionary tale for both sides.

Very funny haha. I would be embarrassed if any of my close friends were to find a condom haha My best friend probably would make fun of me for the rest of my life and tell everyone about it

You don't know about Indian moms. Rofl
Thank you for the friend request . . . I don't know what happened, that we stopped being friends, but I do miss your writing. You have a very unique style of imparting a mischievous sweetness of your true personality, which is what makes your stories so fun & delightful. These really aren't complex or deep stories. Very simple. It's the special sauce that is YOU & your playful personality, which you inject into your stories in a palpable way. This is a hilarious little detail from true life that makes us all laugh, but you make it into a story with a keen eye for recognizing what entertains people (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thanks Tahsin, wish you the same
A great tale to be told to future grandchildren. I could really picture your mother exploding like a volcano. I must admit your tale made me chuckle and cringe for you.
