Sucking up the good luck

Vacuum Cleaner from Biccamera Originally uploaded by angrydicemoose.

I've wanted a vaccum cleaner for a while now, so I headed off to Biccamera in Shibuya to buy one. I looked around and decided on a 22,000JPY (about 200USD) one that would not require me to change bags in it. I went to the register to get ringed up, when the woman behind the counter mumbled something to me and started ringing a bell, all the employees in the area started congratulating me. Turns out, I was the lucky customer (one in a hundred) and I was going to get the vacuum cleaner for free. I had already paid with my debit card, so they gave me the money in cold cash. Fun, happiness.'s to no dust.
