Checks in the Mail

All last year Grandpa and Grandma Johnson have been receiving $500.00 checks in the mail every month and cashing them.

It turns out the insurance company made a mistake with the address. The checks were intended for another Edwin P. Johnson, and now Grandpa receives notice he has to pay back $6,000.00.

Visibly upset, he complains to his grandson, an accountant. His grandson asks, "Grandpa, didn't you wonder why you were receiving checks for doing absolutely nothing?"

Grandpa answered, "I just figured the Democrats were back in power."
