Michael Haddock of Michigan opened a letter claiming that "Michael Ryder" was entitled to $360 a week in unemployment claims. Apparently Michael Ryder was laid off from a restaurant in metro Detroit.
Only, there is no Michael Ryder at that address. Michael is Mr. Haddock's first name, but Ryder? Ryder is his dog.
Haddock then contacted the restaurant and state unemployment office. As a result of this and other instances, the unemployment office in Michigan will be opening a special investigation on the recent rise in fake claims. Ya think?
I love Mr. Haddock's response that, if employed by a restaurant, his dog would probably be a greeter. At least he has a great sense of humor over the whole thing.
