return

So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.

Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.

  • luke:erm, the bikini was red and gold and-
  • han:no. when she killed jabba. what was it like?
  • luke:she strangled him with the chain.
  • han:how did her biceps look? i bet she was really flexed.
  • han:*sighs* *stares off into the distance* i bet she got that really gorgeous look of murderous rage when she's about to do something heroic for democracy and freedom...

Please fire me. I had a man come in with a pair of shoes to return. He was complaining that they had torn and when I opened the box, they looked to be at least 6 months old: worn, cracked and caked in mud and who knows what else. We have no time limit on returns. So he went, got another pair and sure enough his receipt had at least two others stapled to it. Exchange receipts. He’s been exchanging his shoes for new ones for the better part of a year.
