Warning to darling

Wives never learn. OK, some wives never learn. They do not understand their hubby’s loving language.
R worked in Navi Mumbai, transporting goods on his three-wheel van for companies. I was staying on a 5th floor flat facing the Mumbai-Pune highway that time. We did not have an elevator.
One day, R’s wife visited us and was chatting when we heard a van horn along with a whistle sound from the road.
R was standing there with his vehicle and called out his wife lovingly: “Hey, come dear, let’s go.”
“You come up,” she shouted back.
“It’s hot. I can’t climb. You come, let’s go.”
“You come up. Have tea and go,” she retorted.
By this time, R’s patience had been tested. “Heyyy. Comeee,” his voice was a little harsh.
“You come up and…,” she was repeating like a parrot, when we realised R had had enough.
“Heyyyy. Vaaa diiiii (va is “come” in Tamil, di is derogatory). How many times should I call you?” He bit his tongue, eyebrows shrinking, eyes turning red and fingers flashing a warning signal.
Where is Mrs R? I asked my wife.
“She may have jumped from the window in fear. Luckily, she decided to run down.”

  6. Some husbands do not understand the lovely language of wife, indeed! This R's wife was calling him up on all positive note, to have coffee/T, to refresh, meet up your family, to get some good air, instead of sweating under the hot sun!

  7. Ramesh,

    I don't fully understand this short story or joke or whatver it is. However if my wife reads this post, she will ensure I never read your posts or communicate with you. If you were the USA or India, she would take further action.

    I suggest deleting this post.

  9. I am also not sure what to comment. I wouldn't want myself to be caught in a similar situation with my hubby. But, then I would have gone down before the situation descended to being bad :).
