Someone in our house of two loses a lot of things. Regularly. The same someone lost a very expensive pair of designer goggles two days back. The excuse when growled at was very lame "Anyways I was tired of them. I am done with them now!"

And no, that someone is not me. If it was, I wouldn't be so upset.

Why is it always so difficult to tolerate someone else's mistakes?

My only flaw is that I can't handle flaws in others.

akruti: I have a lot to learn from you.

noojes: It's just that I dont want to wait for that end :)

atul: You too, I hope, have a tolerant wife.

LOL @ you.
How "seemingly-innocent-but-wicked-beneath" way you put it ;-)
"Someone in our house of two"

I'd say "bade bade shehroon mein choti choti baatein hoti rehti hai"!!

twilight fairy: Thanks a ton!

truth fairy: I dont know why it hurts so much to see others lose. Thanks for the wishes.

sbhishek: refer to reply to your first comment.

shub: I am surprisingly careful about my things. I know hard to believe but other than the stupid mobiles, I have a good record.

rat: hey, you are back! great!!

ashish: First thing, yeh choti baat nahi hain! Forget the shehr! It's happening within a house! What to do...

khushee: I go to the extent of cleaning my husband's cupboard, instead of my own, just because I hate to see his mess!

pallavi: Maybe you are right, but it's still difficult.

ajay: Isn't it?
