The joke-dispensing cabbie

leave a comment »

It was one of my most hilarious cab rides.
Hell-bent on dissipating the gloom that has descended on others of his ilk, my bhaiya taxi driver exchanged witticisms with other cabbies at the traffic signal and when it turned green, bombarded me with a series of jokes.
One of his best:
With the menfolk out on a business trip, a saas (mother-in-law) and bahu (daughter-in-law) were left by themselves in a sprawling house. At night, the saas could not sleep but she noticed her bahu promptly going off to bed at 11 every night, locking her bedroom door behind her.
One night at 11.30, the saas noticed a man entering her bahu’s room through the window. She also saw him leave through the same window the next morning at five. This went on over the next few nights as well, till the menfolk returned home.
The saas saw all this happening, yet she did not tell anyone about it.
Why?
