Husband and Wife Seriously Weirded Out By Their Electric Company

If there’s anything that we as adults hate to deal with its overdue bills. The headache and embarrassment of asking a company for more time can be quite the ordeal. It’s even worse when the company treats you like you as though all of those years of on-time payments are meaningless. And, of course, there are the phone calls. They always seem to call during the worst time, asking for money. And even though we know we should pay right then; there’s almost a savage satisfaction in denying them. In this fictional story, a husband and wife have a very strange experience over the phone with their electric company that leaves them seriously weirded out.

Mr. Jones 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. Jones receives a telephone call from Electric Company because the electricity bill has not been paid.

” Am I speaking to Mrs.Jones? “

“Yes…… speaking”

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 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 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 visit, and he, mad as a bull, rushes to Electric Company’s 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 Electric Company, “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.”
