This is nitpicking, I know. But I came across this birth certificate proclaiming that the kid's father was/is "unknown". And the occupation of the kid's 19-year-old (obviously single) mother? "Housewife."
The thing is, how can you be a housewife when you are technically not a wife?
The girl at the office told me that they are instructed to put "housewife" in the slot for "occupation" when the mother has no job.
Right. As if being a housewife is not a full-time job.
