MAN SAYS HE NEED HELP TO FIND EXCUSES TO AVOID HIS RELATIVES DURING CNY

Chinese New Year is right around the corner, and I’m starting to dread it.

My relatives are so nosy and full of questions, and I don’t know how to get out of it. I’ve tried making up excuses, but they don’t seem to work. It’s not that I don’t like spending time with them; I just need a break from all the questions.

I’m not sure why my relatives ask so many questions. I think it’s because they want to stay connected with the family. But it’s hard to enjoy a meal or conversation when they keep asking me about my job, my girlfriend, or my plans for the future. It’s like they’re trying to pry into every aspect of my life.

I know I’m not alone in this situation. Most of my friends have similar experiences, and I’ve heard stories from other people too. There must be a way to politely avoid all the questions.

One of my friends suggested that I make up excuses when they ask too many questions. He said that it’s OK to lie if it will help me get out of an uncomfortable situation. I thought about it and decided to give it a try.

So far, I’ve come up with a few excuses. The first one is that I’m really busy with work. I’m a self-employed freelancer, so this excuse works well. I can tell them that I have a lot of jobs to take care of before the end of the year.

Another excuse I use is that I’m too tired to talk. I can tell them that I haven’t been sleeping well and need to get some rest. This usually works well for avoiding uncomfortable conversations.

The last excuse I use is that I’m meeting up with friends. I can tell them that I’m going to meet up with a group of friends for dinner or drinks. This usually works well too, as it gives me an excuse to leave the conversation early.

These excuses have worked quite well so far. My relatives usually accept them and don’t ask too many questions. I’m glad I found a way to politely avoid all the questions.

I know some people might think it’s wrong to lie to your relatives. But I think it’s OK to do it if it will help you get out of an uncomfortable situation. I’m sure they understand the need for some privacy, even if they don’t show it.
