A husband and wife are in line at the grocery store. The clerk asks if they have a preferred shopper’s card.

“Yes,” says the wife, “but I left it at home.”

The clerk says they could look it up by birthday. The woman gives her birthday, but they can’t find her card in the system. After a few more tries, they ask her more information, until her account finally comes up on the computer.

“I think I see the issue,” the clerk said. “Someone put your birthday in the system as 6/24/1899.”

“Obviously, that’s wrong,” the woman says.

The husband finally breaks his silence and adds, “She was born in September of that year, not June.”
