Impatience

100 WORD STORY
Rangan was busy with urgent report. His toddler son came crying saying “Daddy, daddy, come with me quickly”. He ignored the boy and continued with his work.
The boy raised the volume of crying and said “Daddy, listen to me”
“Idiot, don’t you see I am busy? If you don’t go out, I will beat you blue”
“Daddy, please come with me now itself”
Rangan gave a whack and the child stood wailing at the door telling ‘Mom has fainted in kitchen and gas is burning big. I am afraid for mom.”
“You fool, why didn’t you tell me quickly?

  1. Nice drabble. The poor little boy is concerned as well as concerned. Parents should always listen to children rather than asking them to shut up.

  2. Many a time, we never realise the gravity of situation when we react impatiently.

  3. Dad didn't bother to listen as the boy must have been bothering him all the time with some prank or the other. This time the boy's call was serious but dad brushed him off initially. Nice one KP> Is there a moral to the story ? Have a great day.

  12. Impatience and indifference to cries of attention. You've captured the truth of modern day parenting so beautifully. Loved it, sir.
