The shop started accepting reservation of Randoseru for children who will enter elementary school next April on their website at 10am yesterday.
My yesterday work shift was from 11am to 4pm, so I thought I would be able to finish reserving the Randoseru for my daughter.
So I tried to access their website, but the website was too crowded to open.
I was surprised at this unbelievable and unexpected happening beyond my expectation because I was able to buy my 7-year-old son's Randoseru in August of two years ago at the same bag shop without any troubles.
I tried to reload the website many times for 25 minutes, but the error message was displayed on my computer screen and I couldn't finish reserving before I went to work.
I was worried whether my daughter's favorite Randoseru would be sold out until I came home.
I came home at 5pm and tried to access their website, but it was still crowded and wasn't opened.
I asked my daughter:
"I am sorry I have not finished reserving your Randoseru yet even though I have been trying to access their website. If the Randoseru has already been sold out, are you going to look for another one?"
"No! I want that Randoseru! Because it is the same as my brother!"
"OK, I am going to continue."
Since my 7-year-old son was going to the Karate practice from 7pm yesterday, I wanted to finish it until 6:40pm.
I tried to reload the website many times while I did housework.
At last, my reservation was accepted at 6:35pm!
"Yes! I made it! Hey! I could reserve your Randoseru!"
My children came to me and looked at my computer screen.
"Your order was completed."
"Wow! I am happy!"
My daughter was glad.
I was really happy to see her smile.
It took about a half and an hour to finish ordering.
This incident was put on one of the news headlines of Yahoo last night.
Most of comments from viewers were critical against parents like me.
One of them said:
"It is ridiculous. Recently the prices of Randoseru are too expensive."
I agree with it.
I definitely think it is ridiculous, but I just did not want to disappoint my daughter.
In our families case, my panrets offered to pay for her Randoseru.
When we chose my son's Randoseru two years ago, I had no idea how to choose the Randoseru.
One of my friends posted the article on her Facebook that she went to the bag shop to choose her daughter's bag.
Since I didn't know the bag shop, I serached their website on the internet.
I learned it was a long-established bag shop and its handmade leather bags made by craftsmen are very popular among those who value its quality.
Furthermore, I liked the design of their Randoseru because they were really simple Randoseru which didn't have any extra decorations like embroidery, emblem, rhinestone, and so on.
My mother advised me to choose the Randoseru with good quality.
She said cordovan was the best, but I refused her advice because it was too expensive for children's bag.
But she insisted that I should not choose a Randoseru made of clarino.
She believed that the quality of clarino was bad, but it has been improved nowadays, clarino Randoseru is lighter than cowhide and enough durable to use for six years.
I told my son to try carrying the clarino Randoseru and the cowhide Randoseru.
"Either is fine. I don't feel both of them heavy."
He was not completely interested in deciding his Randoseru.
So I accepted my mother's opinion, I chose the cowhide one.
After we received his Randoseru, I was satisfied with its quality and design.
We have not been any troubles yet for more than one years after he started using the Randoseru.
But actually, I think this trend is not good.
Randoseru is Japanese traditional bag for elementary school student, so I hope this tradition will last as ever.
But I think children don't need expensive school bags.
I think children don't need to choose its color, material, and decoration of Randoseru.
I recall my old days that we used similar Randoseru.
Maybe today's children also don't care what kind of Randoseru their friends have, and they will treat it roughly.
