I went to exchange the moneybelt I bought for my trip because the zipper had come away.

The lady then gave me a good tip - If you run led pencil across it then it will more smoothly. Maybe it acts a lubricant or something, Im not sure....
But anyway who wants a broken zipper when out travelling!

Ha that reminds me...

I was looking for my moneybelt all last week. I could have sworn i put it in a safe place after my last trip to europe.

I resigned to the fact that i lost it, or probably left it over there, so went and bought another one... But now i remember. The bloody zipper broke, so i threw it out.

Damn, thanks Ozmate...

Done well.
