As I was checking out at the Kroger, a female clerk walked up to the lady ringing me up.

Clerk 1: Can you work over today?
Clerk 2: It's my birthday!
Clerk 1: Really?
Clerk 2: You forgot my birthday? I'm gonna divorce you!
Clerk 1: We can't get married in Indiana. I'm black and you're white.
Clerk 2: I still want a present.

Is this true? I don't believe it.

That is definitely the best thing I've heard all day :)

Oh, Bil, this had to be at the Kroger's on 16th Street just east of Greg's ... was it? (And why exactly were you risking your life by shopping there?)
