About Mr. HastingsEdit
Mr. Hastings from the Social Security office, visits the Sanford residence to talk to Grady concerning his not receiving his monthly Social Security check -- unaware that Grady actually did receive his check, plus another one by accident, via a computer error, and of a great amount which Grady, in his sudden windfall, spent gleefully carousing about the town with buddy Otis Littlejohn (Stymie Beard) Lamont, who tries to implore Grady to notify Social Security of their error, becomes Grady's real nemesis! Nervous about the possibility that the goverment might catch up with its error, he contemplates telling Mr. Hastings, until, in another error, Hastings (who Grady kept referring to as "Haystacks") returns to present Grady with still another check!
