Months ago, Literally…months (September 12th to be exact) I bought rain gear at Mountain Equipment Co-op. I had no idea our summer would extend into mid October, I was hoping for the best, and planning for the worst (my dad would be so proud) Religiously, I packed the rain gear in my saddle bags to work and home each day, knowing the rain could be just around the corner.
Now the rain is here, and finally I got to slip on my ” over shoe booties” this morning for the ride to work. At 6 am is was raining BUCKETS. By 8:30 am things had died down, but there was still enough precipitation to warrant my full cache of rain gear. I pulled out my rain booties, and realized: I bought TWO left booties.
So not only did I carry the things around for months, I carried around the technically wrong gear. Bummer.
I’m off to MEC tonight to exchange them. I can’t wait for this conversation:
Me: Yea, so I’ve got 2 left booties. Can I exchange one?
MEC Guy: Sure. But why did it take you over 60 days to figure out you had bought the wrong equipment?
Me: I got nothing.
