Annoying Questions in Eid Celebration
Having a family gathering during Eid is surely exciting yet annoying at the same time. Why? Clearly because for you aged around 20-ish, will receive sooooo many questions every year about yourself and everything around you.
To keep you in mood, let’s see the tips on how to answer annoying questions during Eid with a short and precise answer. No more chitty-chatty, here we go!
1. “What are you currently doing?”
The first Eid question is still in the initial level, which means still bearable (for us, yes). This question always comes after a greeting, and often intended for those of you who are already at the right age to work or marry.
If you who want to answer this question with an unusual answer, some of the alternative answers below might help you:
“What are you currently doing?”
- Currently looking for happiness somewhere
- Hunting some opor with free rendang, my tummy needs some yummy
- Getting around relatives’ house for gathering, maybe will get more THR too
2. “Where do you work now?”
Now you guys are going to start the least tough question, the outermost core layer of questions you’ll get from people around. This one question is like when you eat fried chicken, then you leave the chicken skin to eat last, but your friend asks if you want to eat that or not. Got it?
Those who already are financially stable by having a job might be able to answer this question easily, yet it’s another story if you haven’t got the job or just resign from your office. Calm down, here’s how you can answer to that question:
“Where do you work now?”
- Not working yet, currently going out with myself before being a corporate labour
- Still looking for the best, because… Why not?
- In a multinational company, but still waiting for the interview call…
3. “Who’s your girl/boyfriend now?”
Now we’ve come to a deeper level, a question that makes you feel up and down like waiting for the result of your thesis defense. If your neighbor or relatives ask this question, there will be irritation symptoms and you probably want to finish the convo real quick.
However, if you think about it positively, this question is actually pretty acceptable. Your relatives and neighbors are just curious because they haven’t seen you in awhile. If you don’t have one, here here, you can cut off the chit-chat shortly by using these answers:
“Who’s your girl/boyfriend now?”
- I have, but apparently someone still helps me to take care of him/her
- Don’t have it yet, probably haven’t born
- Still waiting, waiting for her/him to break up first
4. “When do you want to get married?”
Last but not least, a very dangerous, sensitive, depressing question that can even hurt your heart. Well, there might be no intention at all to go that deep because sometimes people around really just want to know how is it going, showing concern, and yeah that small talk.
For t-mates who are already well-established both financially and mentally but never being into a serious relationships, brace yourself to hear this question anywhere, anytime. Tiring? That’s your call, depends on how you take it, but there are these straightforward answers:
“When do you want to get married?”
- Soon, when the snow falls in Indonesia
- Still waiting for the marriage permit card first
- Oh, is the wedding gift from you ready?
That’s all the intrigue, drama, and spice of life that you’ll go through while having a gathering during Eid. It may annoy you, but you have to answer it nonetheless, to respect those who ask. Well, worst case maybe it’ll cut your heart but doesn’t bleed.
Therefore, let’s not do any blabbing and just cut to the chase by giving those funny and effortless answers! In that way, you’ll also be able to keep your mood, or probably uplifting it.
