11 Things You Go Through If You're Unemployed In Pakistan

By MangoBaaz Studio | 18 Feb, 2017

Unemployment ko ek gunaah hona chahiye. Your life stops at a point since your graduation or previous employment and the answer to every ‘What’s up?’ becomes ‘Nm, lazy.’  While unemployment makes you hate your life, there’s a lot of other things that happen to your existence, as well.

Have you heard of the phrase ’empty pots makes the most noise’? Well, we do. And that’s exactly what happens when you’re out of work and are in that phase of your life. While unemployment makes you hate your life, there’s a lot of other things that happen to it, as well. Read on to find out more.


1. You’re broke all the time

That goes without saying. You don’t have money for basic necessities and you basically have to scrape a living out of nothing.

2. Paise maangne mein sharam aati hai

Kub tak Abbu Ammi sey paise maangte rahein gey? Especially right after you’re done with university and have zero takka to your name. Or when you’ve depleted your savings from the previous job.

3. Your friends don’t have time for you because they all have jobs

And they don’t stop showing off on Snapchat. ‘Oo, tough day at work’ type snaps annoy the hell out of you. But they don’t stop with their ‘best colleague ever’, ‘first paycheck’ waley updates.

4. You never go out anymore

Because, well duh, you have no money. Sharmindagi se tau behtar hai ke insaan jaye hi na.

5. Gher walloun ke taaney bohut ziada hogae hain

Kub tak gher beithe raho gey? Itna kharcha is maheena. Beta, dekho. Is daffa tau paise de raha houn, ugli baar zara dehaan rakhna.

6. Depression starts creeping into your life

You have nothing to do, no money, your friends start dropping off, you’re annoyed with your life. Doesn’t get any better than this, does it?

7. You contemplate doing the weirdest things just because you’re desperate for money

From selling your clothes online to dancing to even thinking of providing random tareen services to other people just for an extra hazaar.

8. You start applying for any and every job

From Assistant Clerk at the local khoka to tea boy at the Supreme Court, there isn’t a job listing that you haven’t applied for.

9. You try and hide from aunties and uncles at any events

You actively avoid this species of human beings in fear of them asking their favourite questions ‘beta, graduation hogayi?’, ‘naukri mili?’, ‘oho, nai mili?’ and the evergreen ‘mere betay/beti ko tau university se nikalte saath hi naukri mil gayi. Kuch nai hota, aap ko bhi mil jayegi’.

10. You’re so waila that you’re always bored out of your mind

Because you have nothing better to do, on earth, nowhere to go, you keep to your room and ta da: boriyat.

11. Koi rishta bhee nahi ata

Ek tau zindagi ka pehla masla: pyaar nahi milta. Doosra? Berozgaar sey rishta kaun jorna chahe ga?

Translation: If you can’t find a job, you’re fucked. 🙂
