Grappling with COVID 19 is not easy. People all across the country are facing the brunt of the coronavirus crisis. Living in the pandemic for over a year now, we know how going out and meeting people you love is a luxury. It is high time we learn how unsafe it is to step out and going distances to get a glimpse of your loved one. A Mumbaikar on Thursday raised a query on Twitter asking Mumbai Police about the procedure to meet his girlfriend.
"@MumbaiPolice what sticker should I use in order to go out and meet my girlfriend? I miss her," a social media user asked on Mumbai Police on Twitter. Without much ado, the Mumbai Police responded to the gut with a zany which will surely make you go aww. "We understand it’s essential for you sir but unfortunately it doesn’t fall under our essentials or emergency categories! Distance makes the heart grow fonder & currently, you healthier. P.S. We wish you lifetime together. This is just a phase," the response read.
This is not the first time that Mumbai Police responded to such queries on Twitter with wit and quirk. Check out some of Mumbai Police's zany responses to COVID queries that will make you smile without warning:
