A 104-year-old woman in Michigan, Marguerite Joseph, can be forgiven for lying about her age on Facebook, due to a problem on the social networking website that is making her lie about her actual age. Joseph’s granddaughter Gail Marlow said her grandmother was unable to list her real age.

According to Fox News, Marlow said when she tried inputting her grandmother’s birth year as 1908, Facebook changed it to 1928. So for the past two years, the centenarian has remained 99 online, anyway. Joseph is legally blind and cannot hear well, but Marlow reads and responds to all of her Facebook messages, the report said.
