Arnold and Betty were cleaning out the attic one day when
he came across a ticket from the local shoe repair shop.
The date stamped on the ticket showed it was over eleven
years old. They both laughed and tried to remember which
of them might have forgotten to pick up a pair of shoes over
a decade ago.
"Do you think the shoes will still be in the shop?" Arnold asked.
"Not very likely," Betty said.
"Its worth a try," Arnold said pocketing the ticket.
He drove to the store and with a straight face, he handed
the ticket to the man behind the counter.
With a face just as straight, the man said, "Just a minute.
I'll have to look for these." He disappeared into a dark corner
at the back of the shop. Two minutes later, the man called out,
"Here they are!"
"No kidding," Arnold called back. "That's terrific!"
The man came back to the counter, empty handed.
"They'll be ready on Thursday."
