So I bought myself a pair of New Balance sneakers earlier this month. I couldn't find any that I liked that fit me in the local stores, so I ordered them online from New Balance. For $80, about twice what I wanted to spend. I was really looking at this pair of green ones with some orange accents, but when I found out they don't make them anymore, and they haven't gotten any new ones in recently, I figured that I would be able to find them in my size.
Then, almost a month later, I am shopping with my wife in the local mall, and happen upon a pair of the sneakers that I really wanted, in my size.
Stupid Murphy, I despise you.
