    "as if the quilt gods are watching over us and will strike us dead if the order is reversed" – LOL Poor Mrs. Pangalal. God save women from such men 😛 All the best for the contest Sulekha 🙂

      Welcome to my blog, Jyotsana. Loved your witty entry for the contest, best of luck for the same. Thanks for the compliment 🙂

  2. Ha ha ha…Coming from a family of army personnel I could relate very well to this. My Dad is a 7 or 8 on that scale, but fortunately or unfortunately the Mr is not even a complete 1 on that scale. Loved the name: Pangalal. 😀

  3. Lol. I think I might know a person like him. Or he could just match make with the ” aunty” I encountered on my train trip. Good luck Sulekha

      Sid, we all have come across such people…aunties are equally bad 🙂 With advancing age, I am becoming a nosy aunty, thanks.

    Mr Pangalal could be my dad in many ways. He always wakes up at 5 in the morning no matter what time he goes to bed. Later it changed to 4 but I think it's back to 5. He has his morning routine down to a t. He had a thing about how the quilt had to be folded and how the bed had to be made. He is still so picky how cleanliness. Fortunately for him, my mum is also a clean freak. Unfortunately, his children struggled while living at home! 😛

    Good luck with the contest!

    A friend’s father was so and I remember that the poor girl pleaded all of us to plan a night stay so that she could sleep after 8am and Stay in her pajamas on Sunday

    Love the post. Mr Panga is everywhere, relatives, next door neighbor, grumpy colleague. The world can do without Mr Panga:)
