Without any paperwork, Grandpa started getting a $500 check every month. So Grandpa and Grandma started cashing them.
It turns out the government made a mistake with the address; the checks were intended for another person with the exact same name.
Grandpa then received a notice that he had to pay back $6,000. Visibly upset, he complained to his grandson, an accountant.
His grandson asked: “Grandpa, didn't you wonder (aff) why you were receiving checks for doing absolutely nothing?”
Grandpa answered: “I just assumed the Democrats were back in power.”
