As you know, I do quite a bit of traveling for work. Because of this, my travel suitcase has taken quite a beating over the past 2 years. A few months back, I lost one of the zipper pulls for one of the many zippers on my suitcase. Sadly it was the one that I probably use the most, the one that zipped up the main part of the suitcase, from bottom to top. I put in a paperclip to serve as a quick solution until I went out and bought a new tab. It turned into one of those things that I just never got around to doing.
Now back to this week. At the St. Louis Aiport TSA check-point I found not only 3 pennies, but this;
I was so excited! I didn't have to worry about getting a new one. But things went from good to great as coming back from Columbus, I found not one but TWO more zipper pulls! One was at the Columbus TSA and the other was in the jet way!
When in rains it pours!
Now I have gone from a man missing one zipper pull, to a man with two to many! So I ask you, which one do you think I should use? Here are the facts that you need to know. My suitcase is black & gray, and the current pulls are black and have some rubber on them. Here are my thoughts;
Tab #1 - It is black so it matches the rest of the suitcase. Plus it seems to be from Swiss Army which is kinda fun.
Tab #2 - It is the largest, and has a nice section at the end which is raised and has thread to help my grip
Tab #3 - This would be the populist candidate. Very simple and basic.
What are your thoughts? Me, my suitcase and my zipper await your decision!
