This month’s winner is JAY SNYDER of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania:

Some years ago in Seoul, South Korea, my wife and I bought way too many souvenirs and needed to buy an extra suitcase to hold all our treasures on our trip home.

Finding a luggage dealer in the famous Itaewon market district, we selected the perfect suitcase and, after suitable bargaining, settled on a price.

When I asked the vendor what brand of luggage it was, he opened a drawer full of labels and replied, “What brand would you like?”
