Neighbor woes(not mine, mayb my neighbor's)

Last week, while removing my shoes after coming from a stroll, I noticed that my neighbors have left their key bunch in the key hole itself. Coming to these neighbors, they are a Mallu family, one guy with a wife, mother and two kids. I never saw his wife or the second kid. I give some chocolates to the elder son(who's around 3 years old), when he's playing in the corridor with his granny. However, there's no more relation between me n them except a casual smile or a "hi".

So, after looking at the key bunch, being a good neighbor, I knocked on their door. After a moment, the wife opened the door with the door latch ON and was looking at me with a scowl on her face. She was looking at me as if I entered some restricted territory. I just told her that they left their key bunch in the keyhole, which she pulled with some mighty force and slammed the door shut without even looking at me. Poor me, was expecting a thank you from them, if not a lunch invitation in the weekend(these are termed as Bachelor Woes). I was ashamed by this lady's behavior and then being free for some time, I started analyzing what might have went wrong.

1. Maybe her husband didn't cook lunch well(too much salt or no salt).
2. Maybe the chocolates I give to her kid are expired or they have worms in them(I hope you remember the Cadbury Dairy Milk case).
3. Maybe her elder son, who started going to nursery, brought home his girlfriend.
4. Maybe my shoes, which I keep in a shelf next to their door, stink a lot.
5. Maybe she felt bad about me knocking the door, when they had their new calling bell installed that very day.
6. Maybe she's a victim of the sound coming from my home theater(most likely).

Well friends, did anyone of you face some embarrassing situation like mine?

Missing family

Well, this is my first post of 2009. 2008 ended on a high note and there are some wonderful highlights in 2008, as per my last post. It doesn’t matter that we didn’t have fun on the New Year Eve as the celebrations are canceled in the whole Middle East due to the ongoing rampage of Israel on Palestine. It’s also nice to see that some of the wonderful bloggers chose to come back to the Bloggerville just at the brink of the end of 2008.
2009 has been hectic in office (I know that it doesn’t sound to be reasonable to say so, just after a couple of weeks into the new year). Personal life seems to be OK, thanks to the fact that I’m single. But it seems that my parents don’t want me to spend the next New Year Eve single. Marriage proposals are being put in front of me and poor me still isn’t able to decide whether to go ahead or not. Let’s hope for the best.
Last weekend, I saw one great movie, Mumbai Meri Jaan. I don’t know what’s so good about that movie, but I loved every part of it. Something different in this times of mass masala. Did anyone of you see that movie and felt the same?
Been missing family and friends today, as it’s Pongal(Sankranthi) time in India. It used to be so good in my childhood and now, when I’ve everything, I am missing human relations. So this New Year resolution will be a family get-together for the next Pongal. I wish all of you a very happy Sankranthi.

Right now, being busy with work, I may not post much in my blog for some more time but will keep an eye on your blogs. Happy holidays(if you have them).
