You’re at an expensive restaurant with your parents, browsing the menu. Suddenly, your mom leans toward you and whispers rather loudly,
“Yehi cheez Burns Road pe 200 rupay ki milti hai”.
If you’ve met a similar fate at expensive restaurants or retail outlets, congratulations, you’ve been raised in a desi middle class family. Not that it’s a bad thing, but middle class desi parents have instilled these quirky habits in us that are nothing short of hilarious! And to celebrate these quirks, Twitter users are sharing their middle class “aadaat” yet again with the hashtag #iamsomiddleclass. You can’t not relate to these:
1. Just HAVE to “wasool” the entire amount:
@nandita_de @nolanentreeo @zoombamba @gautyou @Akshita_N #IAmSoMiddleClass, when my shampoo gets over, I pour water in the bottle n use

2. Nope, we don’t even let the shoppers escape:
#iamsomiddleclass that we keep a master plastic bag to store other plastic bags in it

3. “Itnay saray paison me itna sa?”
@happlyunmarried #Iamsomiddleclass That I always want free Papdi and extra pani at the golgappe wala

4. “Thora rate girnay do”, because expensive is a complete no-n0.
The only reason I'm excited about 4G is because hopefully the 3G rates will go down.#IAmSoMiddleClass

5. There’s no such thing as disposable; at least not before it has been used 3468 times:
“Rakh lo, kaam ayega”
I wash disposable containers to re-use them later. #IAmSoMiddleClass

6. 80000 for a phone? No way.
You can feed thousands of people, get four cars, and take a world tour in the same amount, beta.
No iPhone. #IAmSoMiddleClass https://t.co/bu6HTxMobd

7. Whatever it is, just save:
#IAmSoMiddleClass ki apne phone ki brightness nahi badhata taki kharch na ho jaye.
— Iron Mann (@Humor_Donor) July 4, 2015
8. Reuse everything; even presents:
#IamSoMiddleClass RT @TheUrbanSlangs: Re-gift – To repackage or rewrap a gift one receives and give it to someone else.
— Harshad Joshi (@HJ91) January 11, 2015
9. Workout begins at home:
#IamSoMiddleClass that I resort to jhaadu-poncha instead of gym for work-out! :p
— HoshiyaarChaddi (@HoshiyaarChaddi) June 28, 2014
10. Because who pays 700 for every movie that comes out:
Waiting for it to become 'World Television Premiere'. #IAmSoMiddleClass @The_Sleigher

This middle class life, ftw!
