"I'm sorry sir," the attendant said, "But LongNight Airlines regrets to inform you that we have lost a great quantity of your emotional baggage."

"What?" The weary traveler demanded, his face angry. "I'll have you know that that luggage was extremely important to me."

"Yes, the airline understands, and we took the liberty of having your luggage appraised and are willing to pay the full value of your luggage. Thirteen cents."

"Excuse me? I know it did not have much monetary value, but the sentimental value was priceless!"

The traveler stormed about noisly, "But I have so much more than carry on! What am I supposed to do with it?"

The attendant smiled graciously. "I'm sorry sir, but to be frank, that isn't our problem. Perhaps a yard sale is in order?"

"It's only got sentimental value. No one else would want it."

"Why do you?"

"Then why do you have it?"
