    Arnold and his wife 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 that 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," his wife said.

    "It's worth a try," Arnold said, pocketing the ticket. He went
    downstairs, hopped into the car, and drove to the store.

    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! Who would
    have thought they'd still be here after all this time."

    The man came back to the counter, empty-handed. "They'll be
    ready Thursday," he said calmly.
