    A guy 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 11 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?" the man asked.

    "Not very likely," his wife said.

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

    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?" the customer 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.
