Norfolk Town Council Apologizes For Telling Man He’s Dead
The South Norfolk Council in England sent Stuart Dobson a letter apologizing for another letter they had sent him that regretfully informed him that he had died…but he could get a tax exemption due to his untimely passing. The council says it was a case of “human error,” but it was a worse one that it sounds.
The letter arrived just a month after Stuart’s wife of 54 years, Ann, had died, and the letter should have referenced her and not Stuart. He hand-delivered a letter to the council to point out the error, and says, “they’re asking me to fill in forms when they think I’m dead,” adding, “I don’t need this at all.”
