A story of everyday folk: Thick as mince

I really did snigger at this:
The couple chose the unusual name after they became convinced they were having a boy, and planned to name it Raymond after Mr Cross’s father.
‘When a little girl came along we had to change our plans – I just sort of made the name up,’ Mr Cross said.
You don’t say…
Now, having had my fun pointing and laughing at the mongs from Coventry, you’d perhaps expect me to turn both barrels on the public sector imbecile who allowed this to happen, after all..
Lisa, 21, of Coventry, West Midlands, said: ‘I just don’t understand how this happened.
‘When I took Raydon to the register office, she was dressed like a little girl. She was wearing pink dungarees, a pink top, and had a pink hat on.
But no, not on this occasion.
A spokesperson for Coventry Register Office said: ‘We apologise to Mr and Mrs Cross for the mistake. We have met with them and the mistake has been rectified and new certificates issued.’
‘The process of registering the birth of a child does give the opportunity on several occasions for the details to be checked by parents before certificates are signed.’
So this is just a case to two complete tools looking to hold everyone else responsible for their own EPIC failure.
