Chance is the name of a guy who delivers melons. Unfortunately for Chance his deliveries only make it about half the time. Because of this, many people don't want to leave their melon deliveries to Chance. Due to lack of business Chance can't afford a cart or box van in order to move his melons. However, at unpredictable intervals everyone at one time relies on Chance to deliver their melons. Since chance cannot afford to turn away business he must take what he can get whenever he can get it. Unfortunately for Chance he is destined for failure because he is consistently overburdened with melons.
Chance has to hold all of the melons that he can carry at once and tries to walk them to their respective destinations. Melons as you know are unstable cargo and as such jostle about, especially at maximum capacity in Chance's arms. Every so often during transport Chance will drop a melon. We would logically assume that the melon's on the bottom of Chance's grasp would fall and smash first, but this isn't always the case. You wouldn't know it to look at him but Chance has great agility. Often times a melon that starts at the bottom of the melon pile is pushed and prodded into the middle of the pile. Sometimes, a safely secured melon residing on top of the pile will roll and jump to certain death while Chance is trying to secure a middle or bottom melon.
Should Chance arrive safely at a destination he is never thanked. In fact most customers treat Chance as though he doesn't exist. They instead lose themselves in the delusion that they willed a melon into existence. Either that or they impose a greater value on their own work and thought processes and decide that someone has delivered them a melon in honor of all of their hard work.
Conversely those who never receive their melons decide that Chance was conspiring against them all along. They claim that every time they have invested their melon deliveries to Chance that he has never come through. They look around at other people smugly eating their melons and decide that Chance has it out for them. Why else would these melon eaters look so satisfied if they weren't in on the melon smuggling secret?
Yet Chance continues on poor, lonely and with a battered ego trying his best to grab that brass ring, but just like with most people Chance is his greatest obstacle to success.
