Today I was waiting for my bus at the bus-stop in the morning and suddenly, to my surprise, I met my old friend XYZ who also was waiting for his company bus..I was meeting him after I don’t know 8-9 years..He was my school-mate..After school got finished, we lost touch and both became busy in their daily routines..But today i felt really nice after seeing XYZ and that too in this bizarre fashion..Felt so good to be reconnected..Then we started up a conversation about general random things. I kept complaining about the problems I am facing such as boring office, stressful work, dull weekends, less salary etc etc..

Finally XYZ said: “You think you have so many problems? Listen to my situation :
A few years ago I met a young widow with a grown up daughter. We got married and I got myself a step-daughter. Later, my father married my step-daughter. That made my step daughter my step-mother. And my father became my step-son. Also my wife became mother-in-law of her father-in-law. Much later the daughter of my wife, my step-mother, had a son. This boy was my half brother because he was my father’s son. But he was also the son of my wife’s daughter which made him my wife’s grand-son. That made me the grandfather of my half brother.This was nothing until my wife and I had a son. Now the half sister of my son, my step-mother, is also his grandmother. This makes my father the brother-in-law of my child, whose step-sister is my father’s wife. I am my step-mother’s brother-in-law, my wife is her own child’s aunt, my son is my father’s nephew and I am my OWN GRAND-FATHER!!!!And you think you have got so many PROBLEMS!!!!”

I just stood there thunderstruck and speechless…I was stunned…The surroundings became stand still…I felt numbness in my entire body..I kept on wondering that how can you be your own grandfather??…Is it possible in reality??..I did not speak anything but still I apologised through my eyes and by bowing my head in embarrassment…Without uttering a single word, we both departed and then both lived happily ever after…


P.S : It is a fictional story…I just changed one forward email into the comic story to live some fantasies and to create some humour..So no need to show mercy on XYZ..He even does not exist!!!
