My papa

My dear, darling Father can make an entire mall collectively shit in their pants. He positively terrorizes hawkers and can be quite gruff with errant waiters. All of this without even realizing what he's done. To begin with, the man can bargain. He can make one of those toughened Sabzi Mandi bargaining bitch women look like unsophisticated amateurs. It probably has something to do with that voice of his. It's a deep baritone, with a ringing clarity to it. It makes matters worse for the salesmen when he addresses them in very courteous language. It's almost like; my father is one of those specimens they warn you about.

He'll also somehow manage to convey the fact that he will walk away with the merchandize for free, in case stipulated terms and conditions are not met. In most cases, you can be sure to meet the manager of the store. He made the CCD chap regret the day he filled out an application form for the job position. I'm past the point of getting embarrassed; I end up giggling hysterically and passing sympathetic looks to the other person.

And once all the terrorizing is over, we get great deals and freebies. He's fun.

#Lesson for today: My papa can be awesome.

My dad's the exact opposite. He asks the restaurant waiter "Yeh sabzi acchi hai na?" :/ And that kinda gets embarrassing...

You're one of the kids who proclaimed "My daddy strongest!" once upon a time arent you? :P

My dad's very mellow actually..he's a shrink so I dont think he's supposed to be scary anyway..:D

But then he uses psychological tricks to make people treat us nice..

which is fun, too..

But wow, your dad gets freebies! ;D

@ Rene: My father makes weird jokes about the food and is almost never satisfied. Which gets discounts :P

@ TUIB: Yeah I did. I loved it. I wish my dad was a shrink. :(. But he does pyschological profles in his work. Kind of makes up for it.

Dad is awesome. :D
