This happens only in Delhi ........

I received this from a friend...

In New Delhi , Mr. Sharma came home one night, and his wife

threw 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. Sharma receives a telephone

call from DEB ( Delhi Electric Board) because the electricity bill has

not been paid.

"Am I speaking to Mrs Sharma? "Yes.....speaking"
DEB Guy, "You're a month overdue, you know!"
"How do YOU know?" stammers the young woman.
"Well, maam, it's in our files!" says the DEB guy.
"What are you saying? It's in your files....HOW????
"Yes.... we have a system of finding out who's overdue"

"Oh my Goodness!!!!! This is too much....."

"Madam, I am sorry..... I am following orders. I have to inform

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 call, and he, mad as a bull,

rushes to the DEB office the next morning.

"What's going on? You have it on your file that my wife is one month
overdue? "What business is that of yours?" the husband shouts.

"Just calm down, "says the lady at the reception at DEB.

"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.

"I don't know. I guess she'd have to use a candle!"
