When I was born, my mom set up a Gerber Life Insurance plan in my name. Every few months or so I get mail updating me on different plans and updates to the company. A few days ago I got another one and my mom opened it, as she usually does, to double check it’s junk mail before trashing it. This is what it said:
As a loving parent, you want to do everything you can to give your children a head start in life. That’s why you gave your child the valuable gift of a Gerber Life Grow-Up Plan. Your thoughtful decision will help provide your child with a brighter financial future.
If you’ve recently welcomed another child, please accept our congratulations! Now you have the opportunity to start all your children out right with the special gift of a Gerber Life Grow-Up Plan.
It then goes on to tell me about the different plan options I can chose for my child. Only one thing though, I don’t have any children. I have not recently welcomed a child much less ANOTHER one. I’m not a loving parent and I didn’t give a child the valuable gift of a Gerber Life Grow-Up Plan. Does Gerber know something I don’t? Man, I really hope not. But just in case they do, does this mean I can take a child deduction in my tax return for more money?
