Me Thinks

??!

Weddings are always fun to attend. Its not just the clothes, food, meeting dear people etc but you also get to meet at least a few characters whom you'd remember for a very long time. And almost always you'd bump into a bully who happens to be someone's grandfather asking all single guys what they are doing and how much they earn. You can somehow dodge the questions and escape but what do you do when some old man asks an almost-30-year-old you "Do you remember me? The last time I saw you, you were a 2-year old?" Do they seriously expect someone to say yes to that?

True. But the chances of you recognising them are more than they recognising you with no external influence.

Oh yeah, they shouldnt see one bachelor and they are off to fix the match for their grand daughter! They are after all BharatMatrimony's main competitors.

Those are embarassing moments -- "Do you remember me?" -- You can't say NO. So you would say YES with a blush and they would ask tell me who am I? -- you just hope that your guess comes in right :-)

Deepa,
Sure. The chances of you hearing from your mom or dad about this relative and getting a mental picture is very high whereas the guy who has seen you when you were two or three jsut takes a guess based on the people around you. Many have mistaken me for my cousin because in weddings I hang out with my aunts more than my mom - hence misleading. But the dialogue is standard. Sometimes I call them on their folly but most of the times I just let them have their minutes of fun. But I get irritated with this one guy who still thinks I am Ramesh s/o Krishnamurti inspite of seeing me at all the weddings.

Welcome Arnie, read NRI Homecoming. You'll like that better.
Karthik, I've been in that situation many times. In the next wedding I attend, I am gonna do that to someone just for kicks.;-)
Rajesh, maybe that guy is trying to tease and thinks he is being funny. Let him know that he is annoying and he wont do that to you again.
Ashok, most people get into this situation coz they are not comfy saying "No". But if you've been able to, thats very good.:-)
