Bureaucratic Red Tape


Odd statement of the day:
An online classified ad offering a "free" teenager appeared on a Salt Lake City television station's Web site Saturday afternoon.... The ad listed a "hardworking young man" who was being given away because "we're low on money, no room in the house," said Mary Workman, 52, of Amarillo, Texas, a former Salt Lake City resident who saw the ad as she browsed online....

Workman said the ad showed two pictures of a young man who appeared to be 15 to 17 years old.

She said she called the Spanish Fork number listed on the ad and a woman with an accent answered, apparently an adult affirming that the child was available. A man then got on the phone, also confirming the child was to be given away.

"That just totally blew me away," she said. "You can't give your child away, not without paperwork."
Apparently it's a multi-part form, you keep the canary copy, the blue and pink copies are for...
