CRY PROPERLY

Mum:    Why are you crying over this small cut? I once saw a boy with an amputated hand; was he crying? No. In my day when we cut ourselves they poured kerosene over the sore or put a hot iron rod on it to seal the wound. We didn’t have fancy plasters with all kinds of stupid drawings on them. Which plaster do you want, Tom and Jerry or Thunder Cats? For me to even ask you this question sounds like nonsense to my ears. Furthermore when you cry, cry properly. There is no need to cry waving your hands all over the place. Are you flagging a cab?
 
Veena:   (Mumbling) No.
 
Mum:     Then what kind of nonsense flagrant flamboyant exhibitionist attention seeking crying is this? Do I look like someone who cares? Sit down and cry quietly. I thought you are an introvert. Are you having some sort of personality disorder in this crying display? Gesticulated wailing and the throwing around of one’s body should be saved for the justified mourning of loved ones, not for children’s tantrums. If you are choosing to speak words whilst you are crying, ensure you pronounce them properly. No child of mine will cry like they have a speech impediment. Thank you.
