The other day, Mr. kenju and I were headed to AAA, to buy an extension handle for his rolling luggage (he always claims they are too short). Being taller than average can be an impediment sometimes....LOL. So, we get out of the car into beautiful sunshine, a light breeze warmly caressing our skin and he says "Look at those clouds! I thought the weatherman said it would be sunny all day". He's one of those "glass half-empty guys", and the cartoon section above describes him perfectly!
At AAA, we discover they don't carry the extension handles, but it is suggested that we go to one of the two travel stores in the nearest mall. I avoid that mall like the plague, but in the interest of the search we went there (only the second time this year for me). We checked the first store, which had one that I thought was sort of pricey plus a saleswoman who was so bored and uninterested she could hardly bring herself to talk to us. So we went to the second store, where we found the same handle at the same price, but a salesman who was genuinely helpful. We bought it.
As we pulled into the driveway at home, Mr. kenju took the suitcase from the car, extended the handle and proceeded to drag it into the garage, where he stops and says....
"You know, I don't think I really need an extension after all."
Guess who had to go back to the store for a refund?
