The Dead Man And The Cobbler…

While going through his 
deceased father’s things, a man finds a 25-year-old claim check for a shoe repair. Curious, he goes to the store and hands the owner the ticket. 
The owner goes to the back and then
reappears. “Good news,” he says. “They’ll be ready next Friday.”
