#60: Umm, What?
Let me get this straight. Mom gives birth, fills out paperwork with the wrong birthdate, and none of this gets noticed until he’s old enough to do his own taxes? I’m sorry, but I’m not buying it. There’s more to this story! It could be that Bill never knew his correct birthdate or that the birth certificate was wrong, or maybe the hospital admin was a tad bit sleepy before coffee that day.
Either way, it’s hard enough to get all this bureaucracy done when it all goes smoothly, much less so when you have a giant error like this standing in your way. I can’t even imagine what all would be required to prove to the social security administration that something was wrong in their system. That sounds like way too much work.
