Congratulations Etiquette

Congratulations Etiquette

You’re either looking on starry-eyed (re: enviously) as another one bites the dust. Your loved one’s achieved yet another milestone, having obviously left you behind. No more dodging awkward life questions with you; think ‘What do you want to do with your life, bete?”/”Shaadi kab hone waali hai?”, no siree. It’s an empty grassland out there, and they’ve left you for the vultures.

Alternatively, you’re married or you’ve transcended this milestone and you’re probably thinking ‘The poor bachhas, don’t know what they’re getting into’/ ‘The big bad world’s going to feast on you, you innocent lamb’ as you smirk on evilly and twirl your mustache (re: could be imaginary, it’s the thought that counts)

…Regardless, your loved one’s getting married/graduated/received a job offer/achieved a milestone and congratulations are in order!


Ingredients:


- Positive vibes

- Munchies to achieve said vibes

- Pen

- Scratch paper

- Your Greeting card

1) Eat said munchies; now wipe that satisfied smile off your face. It’s time to get down to work

2) Think of all the hours of work your loved one’s put into this endeavor (dealing with a significant other for a significant period of time definitely qualifies for congratulations!). With that thought in mind, it’s time to commend this achievement. Make special mention of the instances where you’ve chanced upon the blood/sweat/tears of your loved one. The more personal your note, the more meaningful.

3) Reflect on how far they’ve come, and provide them with that perspective. Let’s face it—it’s fun to bask in the praise. Give them that opportunity!

4) Get to writing sir, time’s ticking!

Word bucket: Congratulations, I’m so jealous, you don’t know what you’re getting into, I’m so happy for you, You’ve come a long way (think Miley Cyrus in reverse)
