It felt as if it had taken ages to reach the cashier. He knew shell suits weren’t the trend nowadays, but the colour had attracted him. Pity it didn't fit.

"I’d like a refund please. It’s too small."

The cashier frowned. "I thought we stopped selling these years ago."

He shrugged. "I came back as soon as I could."

"You’ll have to get a refund at the customer service desk." She pointed to the opposite side of the store.

"Oh no. Please, I beg you, no!"

But the cashier stood her ground and sent the snail on another epic journey.
