Height of Irrelevance

Ok..after last night's little debacle, i'm in a much better mood thank you

Hhere's something i forgot to tell you guys..its hilarious (in retrospect) tho when it happened i wanted to pull out my hair.
Keep in mind that some people think I ALLEGEDLY have a bad sense of direction and i can ALLEGEDLY get lost like that *snap* (SO not true.)

[ Time :645 am, Setting: Mahi on the bus on her way to the Shangrila for her first day of work]

(Phone buzzes violently)
Me: Yes mom? (Hurries to lower the volume coz mom speaks um..very loudly)
Mother: Mahi!?!?!?!!?! Are you ok!?!?!?!!?!?!?! Where are you???You know where to go, na??
(Proceeds to give me directions for the 5th time)
Me: Motherrr..i know where to go! Can you relax?Bye!!

(A while and 4 phone calls later)
Me: Yessssss motherrrrrr?How may i help you?
Mother: Which stop are you at?? You get off at the one after this stop..nono wait..after
3 more stops..nono wait..or is after so-and-so stop....
Me: (silence)
Mother: Wait wait..let me ask your dad.
Me: Yes you do that. And pass the phone to dad.
Dad: Hello?
Me: Dad.i know where to get off..for the 20th time I.KNOW.WHERE.TO.GET.OFF. Stop calling
Why do u guys underestimate me so much?!!?
Dad: Yes you and i know..your mom's just a bit worried
Me: Distract her please..if she keeps calling like this, i'll miss the stop.
Dad: haha ok ok..wait hold on

(Here Dad tells Mom i'll be fine..and Mom says something back)

Dad: You're mom wants to know something.
Me: What now.
Dad: (And i can almost hear him trying not to laugh) She wants to know what handbag you're
carrying.
Me: (silence)
Dad: (silence)
Me: That is so completely and utterly irrelevant right now. I'm not answering that.
Dad : *chuckles* Ok ok bye have fun.


Motherrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
It doesn't end there..i decided to call my mom when i reached, to allay her fears

Me: Mom..I've reached
Mother: Mahi!!! When you called my heart was in my mouth!!!! Your brother, na...he has a
black tongue..he said
"I bet you 20 bucks..she's calling coz shes lost"
Me: What an ASSHOLE!!!!!!!!!
Mother: Mahi! How dare you use such language! Don't call you brother that!
Me: Ok ok sorry i have to go now byeeeeeee
Mother: By the way...what handbag are you carrying?
Me: Bye mother.

*click*


Mahi-haters remember ONE THREE things.
I may not always know my way around.
I may not always get my directions right.
And every now and then, I may get my bearings in a tizzy.

BUT I ALWAYS REACH MY DESTINATION.
(and if i don't..i wont hesistate to take a cab.)

GOT THAT?
