Laughter in Government Office: i'm having it

After having the bad experience at the Parakode Block Development Officer's office, i went there again after getting an application letter from my legal advisor.This time i am loaded with all what i am needed to get the certificate.Mr. Thankappan was having a mammoth conference that was going on with him presiding.I waited outside the door.In between he came outside smoking a cigrette and talking on the cell phone.I approached him and apologise for me asking him to be answerable to the public the last day.

He replied,"you weren't talking like this before...where is your sense of questioning now.........for getting things done at a govt office there is a procedure...........you got to know that".

Me: i know that sir.i shall keep that in mind dealing govt. offices the next time..

Thankappan: "lemme check after the meeting."

The meeting ended at 1 pm.I entered his office room asking permission.He asked me again the purpose.This time i showed the advocate's request letter along with the court certificate.Now he started the blah blah again.........

Thankappan: "I cannot give some one a certificate if you bring some paper...........If i give you the certificate of my subordinate , he will sue me for i gave certificate to some person without his consent."

I called my advocate and gave the phone to the BDO.He declined to the advocate also.Then by the instructions of the BDO,

i asked him to either accept the application and give me reciept (acknowledgement).This was declined.Then i asked him to give me in writing that he is rejecting my application for salary certificate on certain ground.He got up from his chair and walked around like a mad man.

He went outside and called his driver and instructed him to xerox the court order and advoc's application.Thankappan told me that he need to think and call his brother who is also an advocate.I went to the nearest shop and bought a banana to deal with hunger as it was 2:30 pm then.

Thankappan came back and then again i entered his office and i told him something as i was told by my advoc.Here is it......

"Since you are not giving me either the certificate which the court ordered and my advoc applied formally or giving me in writing that you are accepting (acknowledgement receipt) or rejecting the application, my advoc has filed a contempt of court petition.You might get papers from court and will have to answer the respected court for your act of disobeying the court."

That did it..............

Thankappan told "You want the certificate right..........i shall give it..........do not threaten me with contempt of court petition and all......nobody is going to get me in to their nose (malayalam phrase translated)......i will answer then........I shall give you the certificate.........wait for it to get typed..i shall come back and sign it after a finance committee i got to go at 3 pm....do not get tensed about that......".

And i got it ...........................

Can't Stop Laughing at the Office...............
