Valentine’s Day is here — a day to celebrate romance. It’s a day to commemorate love and a day to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you. The entire world is painted in the colour of love and is celebrating Valentine’s Day.
While on one hand, some youngsters have planned a day full of surprises for their special someone, there are others who are struggling to find a way out to just catch a glimpse of their beloved and perhaps spend some time together. From wary mothers to suspicious fathers and from cautions teachers to nagging bosses and nosy neighbours, everyone seems a bit too curious. Amid such carefully crafted circumstances, where even using the ‘f-word’…ehmm…friend…can raise red flags, meeting your beloved seems a task too hard to accomplish.
But as they say, no oceans are too wide and no mountains are too high when the love is true. So this Valentine’s day if you too are stuck in a dilemma unaware of how to dodge all the vigilant eyes and find your way back to your beloved, we have a failproof cheat sheet for you:
How to ditch your mum
Lying to your parents is never a good idea but sometimes (especially if it’s Valentine’s day), studying a bit harder (albeit the book of love) is not that bad. Extra classes in school or tuition never seem to grow old for a reason.
How to ditch your dad
Fathers are strict and it’s often too tricky to find an excuse that they won’t suspect. However, if you are in college anything from placements to PDP classes would make the cut.
How to ditch your boss
Bosses can be as tricky to tackle as fathers, especially if it’s the v-day. But an ailing sibling or a hospitalised room-mate as your proxy can help. Just ensure that you have someone to verify your story.
How to ditch your neighbour
Nosy neighbours are called so for a reason. And if your dear ‘friend’ lives just around the corner, catching up can become really goofy. However, no one can say no when an ailing friend needs help or when studies are at stake. Just ensure that you sound convincing enough when you talk to your aunt.
How to ditch your dad
Here’s another one to help you ditch your dad. Be it college or school, you can never go wrong with group studies. Tip: alert your friend about a possible phone call from your parents so that you have your stories straight.
