Tidbits: April 2015

It’s been a while since I posted something new on the “dad” blog. There is a lot to catch you up on, so here goes…

Food Fiesta

One evening, at a McDonald’s outlet, Tiger wanted some Chicken McNuggets. He was almost through eating it when…

Tiger: Papa, I know that the chicken I’m eating is a woman!

Papa: Really? What do you mean?

Tiger: I mean it’s a hen chicken – a girl.

Papa: How do you know that?

Tiger: See, it says right here on the packing. Made from juicy chicken breast. So, it must be a girl chicken, na?

Another day, at a dinner outing, we were waiting for our food to arrive at the table, when I noticed something smoking at the next table. In an effort to keep the kids entertained, I mentioned it to them…

Papa: Look, at the table next to our’s. They’ve ordered a dish that is smoking!

Tiger: Why is that?

Papa: They may have ordered something that sizzles or is served in a hot pot, so smoke comes out for a while.

Tiger: I feel bad for the dish.

Papa: Why? No need to feel bad…

Tiger: Because it will get cancer. Smoking causes cancer, no?

Customer Service

I was having a lunch conversation with my kids and I took the opportunity to vent a little. Instead of addressing customer service problems every day, I’ve been trying to bunch them up and address all of them at a go. One of these days, I had just finished talking to several service providers and was feeling frustrated with the progress I’d made.

Papa: Kids, do you know what I’ve been doing the past few hours?

Tiger: What?

Papa: I’ve fired ICICI, I’ve fired Airtel, I’ve fired Kotak, I’ve fired Vodafone and I’ve fired the Insurance agent.

Tiger: (Pregnant pause, then cheeky smile…)

Papa: What?

Tiger: Papa, you’re going to need a Fire Engine soon!

Can you beat that?!
