Boeing

Mistaken Identity

By Elizabeth Rubio

August 2016

My grandfather and uncle both worked for Boeing in Renton, Wash., in the early 1960s. Grandfather was "Sr."; Uncle was "Jr." Both were from Rhode Island with similar ID numbers. Whenever Uncle got sick or went on vacation, they deducted from Grandfather's account. Grandfather kept bugging Uncle to get records fixed ... Uncle never would.

Then, Uncle had to work a lot of overtime, and the overtime went to Grandfather's check. Didn't take long for Uncle to get the situation straightened out. Was quite a laugh for the family.
