Wanna Whack!

This post was written as a contest entry for 'Whack!! this Wednesday' on www.blogadda.com . It was an interestingly weird contest asking for 5 incidents in your life which make you really want to whack something or someone. Here's my entry:

Being a complete foodie, the first thought that comes to my food when I see this contest is just that! When you’ve had a long day at your internship, and you and your friends plan to go to the club for a swim and dinner, you want your favorite item, Masala chips right after the swim! Is it that much to ask for? But when you order one plate, the waiter says that they’ve run out of chips for the day and that the stock will not be replenished on that day. You know you do not deserve this and also that they are not at fault. But just for being the conveyor of such bad news, you want to really whack him! You do not want to consider the alternative dishes to order and are forced to have a roll instead. Should a hungry hardworking person be subjected to such torture?

Another thought runs through my mind and I remember the day when my laptop was not responding too fast to my commands. I agree that a part of this would be my fault because I tend to download too many music videos and films onto my laptop. But Hey! Technology’s supposed to be advancing at an alarming rate, right? So going by that, I figure that it is just slow and would not give up on me! However, I sit and work on a stupid college assignment all morning and manage to save it on and off. But, as I wrote my conclusion of it after a lot of thought, the laptop got hung. My data could not be saved. Then, the damn thing had to be reformatted and hence, even my saved data could not be retrieved. I wanted to whack the laptop that had let me down. Or myself. But I preferred the idea of whacking the former!

Boys. Hmmm...There are a few good ones, no doubt, but on the whole, they can really hurt. If you let them. After being best friends for 8 months, you finally ‘realize what you two share’ and get together. But that happens to be before you leave for your own colleges in different cities. And the long distance relationship is what you work on but he doesn’t. He won’t reply to messages, will ignore calls and leave for a holiday to London without telling you that he is leaving the country! He finally leaves an ‘I-don’t-think-this-is-working-out’ message on your Facebook Inbox to end it. That’s just the pits! You really really want to whack his face and make sure that he no longer remains cute to be dated by anyone!

Liars. Fake people. Pretenders. Bitches.They annoy me beyond any limit I could set for tolerance. There was a boy my school who used to care too much about what the world thought of him. I pity the boy because he lost his friends along with his individuality. He’d tell tall tales to the girls, get cigarettes to lure the boys to be his friends, wear branded clothes all the time, show off his riches. What did he have to gain or lose from this? Everything! He tried to befriend me once because I was close to the girl he had a crush on. I showed no interest. He started spreading rumors about me and a classmate of mine. Everyone knew what the truth was though. I confronted him on this and he apologized profusely trying to blame someone else who was not even remotely aware of the situation. He was cringing with fear at what I would do and the rumors I would spread. But I did not bother. All I wanted to do was give him one good whack across his face! I wish I had had no self control then. Damn!

The last incident is not pertaining to any one particular film in the theatre but many of them. That annoying person whose phone rings during the most intense scene of the film and he/she actually picks it up despite the grunts from everyone around him and talks in the loudest possible voice to show the world that someone remembered him. Whack him! Whack her! They should be thrown huge buckets of sticky cheese popcorn on! A waste of the popcorn, but still!
