Bonus:

“When I was about 13 I went to go buy some new jeans.”

“Shopping for jeans always sucked because I was tall, skinny and awkward. So I grabbed a bunch of jeans in different waist and length sizes to go try them on and went into a dressing room. None of the ones I brought in fit quite right, but there was a pair in there that a previous customer must have tried on, so I figured meh, what the hell. Tried them on, fit perfect, and I bought them.
Wore them out, the next day reached in my pocket and found a 100$ bill. Still the most excited and happiest I have ever been.” grindor / Reddit

If you look around carefully and pay attention to the details, you won’t miss out on memorable strikes.
