Saved by the beard
My home phone messages are forwarded to my e-mail account as audio attachments. Checking my e-mail I discovered a message from a lawyer with the New Hampshire Attorney General's office. That couldn't be good, I thought.
Using my cell phone I got in touch with the office. They were following up on on an old complaint on voter irregularity. Okay . . .
Someone identified my dad as possibly doing something inappropriate leading up to the last election. Dad, however, was in Florida the whole time. The lawyer heard that was the case and I was able to confirm it.
Here's where it gets even more personal. Dad was identified from an old newspaper photo. The lawyer thought that I, being his son, might fit the bill. However, dad is bald and clean shaven. I've a pony tail and a beard. There is no way I could be mistaken for him. That pretty much settled it. He thanked me and said it looks like he'll be closing out the case.
Still seemed pretty weird to me.
