I supplied a few air-conditioners to a Public Sector Enterprise.
They ordered the machines in a great hurry three months back.
Said they would pay 50% advance for the machines on delivery and the balance after installation. Reluctantly we agreed.
The reason was that my wife's uncle was the top man in that company some 45 years back!! I had a soft corner for the company!
Once the machines were delivered, they didn't even tell us where some are to be installed for almost two months!!
After completing the work we submitted the bills and they said, "Wait for a few days".
Two more weeks and they said "We are waiting for fund transfer from Government".
Today they are asking us whether we have submitted our bill !!
Even a snail will move faster I suppose !!
