Rain, rain go away

It has rained for 11 days straight in Oklahoma. My daughter Paige and I were in Wal-mart and we heard it start again. While we were checking out Paige commented that it must be a new record. I told her it was not. She insisted it was and asked me if it wasn't then what was the record for rain days in a row? I told her it was 40 days and 40 nights. The checkout lady thought this was hilarious. It was so funny in fact she forgot to put one of our bags in our basket. They had those triangular bag holders that swivel around and you have to check 3 sides to check if you haven't left anything. The cashier is supposed to check also to ensure this does not happen. I can't tell you how many times I have stopped someone ahead of me who has left a bag that was before me in line. I got home and called to make sure they still had it at the register so I could go pick it up. After much ado the customer representative informed me a bag was left at one of the registers. She asked me what was in it? I told her a package of girls socks, women's razors and men's razors since that's all I could remember missing. The customer service rep wasn't sure that the bag was mine since it had other items in them but I could not remember what they were. She asked suspiciously if another one of the items could be glue sticks? I told her," yeah I got some of those also." She was still not convinced the bag was mine. I got fed up and in classic Goodyear fashion asked if anyone else had called up in the last 20 minutes asking about a bag they left at that register with girls socks, men/women razors and glue sticks? "No."I told her I was headed up there and if someone else shows up asking for these exact items then they can have my bag! I also informed her I would be there in 10 minutes and if my bag is not there, a bag just like it will be waiting on me.
If it rains again I think I will take the day off and start buying some lumber.
