17 Things That Can Absolutely Ruin Every Pakistani's Weekend

By Astarte | 20 Feb, 2016

Who doesn’t love weekends? The two days of absolute bliss when one doesn’t have to drag themselves out of bed and can stay in for as long as they want. The smell of fresh desi parathay is something every Pakistani craves for all week, and every weekend as you wake up that delicious fragrance, you know you’re going to have a good day ahead.

However, many of us are not always so lucky. Here are some weekend woes that we all dread and hate:


1. When you have so much of ghar ka kaam

If you’re a clean freak then there is no escaping this. Your help will make sure to pile up enough work for you get through the weekend. Makes you questions your life’s choices.

The older you get, the more responsibilities they keep adding to your list. Eventually Sunday mornings are spent in workshops for car repairs or driving gharwalas around town.



5. When gas shortage sabotages your long weekend shower

Summers are meant for frequent long showers but in winters your relationship with water is that of a cat.

Sunday night anxiety is a real phenomena. It consumes your Sunday evenings, so in reality, you only get 1.5 days of stress free time. That too only if you’re lucky.
