What's My Age Again?
Carefully I cut out the number “3” and adhere it delicately over the “2” of 1992. I take the improved document and place it on my three-in-one printer-fax-copier. Off white paper is inserted and a copy is made. It’s fool proof, perfection. All week 18-year-old boys have been coming to me with their birth certificates, and all week I have been teaching them the art of doctoring a document. Is this legal? Probably not, but there are no police to check. Is this a valuable life lesson? One could argue yes since apparently so many boys need the help. All I know is I have helped at least 5 boys successfully join the team of their dreams. Let’s hope this doesn’t backfire on anyone!
