A quick lunch today for KG and his friends inspired this post. KG and his friends and in general the male of the species can be very very annoying at times!! They have weird habits and mannerisms that can actually drive you nuts.

I believe each one has a unique annoying secret habit and you discover it sooner or much sooner. Here are a FEW of variety I have encountered…

  • Mr. Remote: This man is the sole owner of the Idiot Box and its mandatory accomplice. Others in the family do not even get to feel or touch the accomplice…they are supposed to just patiently gawk at the telly and savor whatever channel is dished out to them at break neck speed!!Last week at a get-together, some of the male species were absconding from the party area. And the search ended in the TV room where all of them were huddled together and watching…Tom & Jerry!
  • Mr. Player: This man will play endlessly, tirelessly the card game ‘FreeCell’ on his Mobile. Nothing can keep him away from his game…and he can do it while singing for Antakshri, having general chit-chat over the liquid diet or even while talking to his wonderful wife!!rman8444l
  • Mr. Selective Listener: How do they do this?? You tell the whole Ramayan and suddenly they’d ask who was Sita!! Mind you, they’d ask about ‘Sita’ and not about Jatayu or Sugriva!!
  • Mr. SMS Freak: He can communicate only through SMS! A 2 word SMS or a SMS running into 4-5 messages, is all you’ll see him doing…always!
  • Mr. Gold Digger: I find it too gross to even discuss it, but it seems to be their favorite pass time, which is all the time!! The mostest gross is when they’d refrain from cleaning that ‘Golden Finger’ before picking any thing from the bowl!!
  • Mr. Devil’s Advocate: You are sharing a harrowing tale of the day and you get a Devil’s Advocate instead of some sympathy and support!
  • Mr. Sound Effects: Free sound effects, with new and different variations at every occasion. Why can’t these sound effects be created in private!!
  • Mr. Complainer: Nothing is ever right as per his standards. The weather, the movie, the food, the kid’s behavior, the party, the gadget you bought…all give him a new thing to whine about!

I guess, the list can go on and on!! But…

    Do u think about blog posts all the time of your life????????

    Anyways,you wrote:
    “”””the search ended in the TV room where all of them were huddled together and watching…Tom & Jerry!””””

    Are u talking about kids????

    Cheers and keep writing.

  2. shilpa.. very very impressive!
    awesome..i’ve seen guys who neva listen to anythin..the same case happened between my mom and my case dad ll ask about jatayu and sugriva too!!They have this partial hearing loss!!
    yet another milestone in your blogging history!
    keep smiling

  3. Oh! Brilliantly summed up! That INDEED is the story of men, in a nutshell! Ufff! And the pic to go with it was ‘sone pe suhaga’! It’s no use trying to talk some sense into them! Best to leave them with their remote!

  4. @ Shankar: 🙂 They truly are… 🙂

    @ Indian Pundit: 😀
    About “Do u think about blog posts all the time of your life????????”….well that’s a secret!! 😉

    NO, they were not kids…but your brethren! 🙂

    @ Shruti: I know, what you mean!! 🙂
    They are like that only!! 😀

  5. @ Kaddu: Thanks! 🙂
    And actually I do this…I never touch the remote, coz we have the Junior and the Senior Garg who monopolize the remote!! 🙁

    @ pawan: Oh, you tooo! 🙂

    @ Rane: 😀 Am glad you liked it!! 🙂

  6. But what about the Mr. Gentleman and Mr. Cool. They too are from the same species, u know. I hate it when we men are generalised by the fairer species.

    Did we ever complain about Ms. Talk-a-lot or Ms. Shopaholic. We always say there are beautiful women and then there are more beautiful women and take all their eccentricities in our stance. Why can’t you gals do the same?

  7. @ Musings of a lonely traveler: Yeah you can laugh at this!! But this Mr. DG is I abhor the most! Rest are still OK. But this one is surely YUCK!!

    @ Babli: Thanks Babli! :0

    @ Shas: Yeah, they too would have a long list!! 🙂

    @ Roshmi: Am glad it tickled the funny bone!! 🙂

    @ Whats In A Name: Happy to be a source of inspiration!! 🙂

  8. @ Paritosh: Yeah sure we have Mr. Gentleman, Mr. Cool, Mr. Nice Guy…and agree they are from the same species, but here I have listed only the ones with ANNOYING habits!!

    We’d love to have more of Mr. G, Mr. C , Mr. NG around…Always!!

    And as for the second part: I am actually smiling!! 🙂
    Ok on a serious note, You are like that ONLY and We are like that!! 😀

  9. It is a realy cool and funny post! I find sometimes they are combination of two or three types and then it is very hard to handle them!!
    I have done the zatpat tag!! Hurray!!!Thanks for tagging me! I enjoyed them a lot!

  10. Have seen 3,4,6 & 8…and all these in one guy…I wonder how they manage to be so ‘multi-talented’? I am sure there are many more like him out there…

    and Mr.Gold Digger….?? ewwwwww..May God help his Lady…

  11. @ Sweet Nothings!!!: Yeah, you may laugh at it…but when you are offered food mingled with that “Golden Finger”!!???

    @ My Baby: Thanks and I know about the eternal interest in Sita by your species!!

    @ garima82: Yeah, they sure are ‘Multi-talented”!!
    I would be hard to find one with a single “Talent”!! 🙂

    I guess, all others are still ok, but this Mr. Gold Digger!! Truly, God help those around him!! 😀
