Divorced From Reality, Part 4

| Romantic | February 26, 2016

(I work at a registry office. We get a lot of phone calls for various services and we prefer if the client calls before they arrive unprepared. Some calls are better than others.)

Me: “Hi, this is [Company]. How can I help you?”

Client: “I need to know what I need to obtain a marriage license.”

Me: “Sure. First of all, both parties will need to be here in person with ID. In addition, if either of you have been married before, we require that you provide a copy of your divorce documents.”

Client: “Oh. Is there any way around that last part?”

Me: “Uh… no, sir. You cannot get married if you can’t prove that your previous marriage was dissolved.”

Client: “Well, see, I don’t want my fiancé to know that I was married before.”

Me: “Uh…” *shocked silence* “I’m sorry, sir, there is no way around that.”

Client: “Okay. Well, thanks anyway.”

(I foresee a long and prosperous relationship in their future.)
