Height of Misunderstanding !
Mr. Padro comes home one night, and his wife throws her arms around his neck: “I have great news… I’m a month overdue. I think we’re going to have a baby!”
The doctor gave me a test today, but until we find out for sure, we can’t tell anybody.”
The next day, Mrs. Padro receives a telephone call from Gas & Energy Co. because the electricity bill has not been paid.
” Am I speaking to Mrs. Padro? ”
Gas & Energy Co. guy, “You’re a month overdue, you know!”
“How do YOU know?” stammers the young woman.
“Well, ma’am, it’s in our files!” says the Gas & Enrgy Co. guy.
“What are you saying? It’s in your files… HOW ???”
” Yes ….. We have a system of finding out who’s overdue ”
” GOD !!!… This is too much…”
“Madam, I am sorry… I am just following orders… I have to inform that you are overdue..”
“I know that … let me talk to my husband about this tonight. He will speak to your company tomorrow.. ”
That night, she tells her husband about the incident, and he, mad as a bull,rushes to Gas & Energy Co. office the next day morning.
“What’s going on? You have it on file that my wife is a month overdue? What business is that of yours?” the husband shouts..
“Just calm down,” says the lady at the reception at Gas & Energy & Co., “it’s nothing serious. All you have to do is pay us.”
“PAY you? And if I refuse?”
“Well, in that case, sir, we’d have no option but to cut yours off..”
“And what would my wife do then?” the husband asks.
“Well… I don’t know. I guess she’d have to use a candle !!!”
