    What are some of the classic lines or stories that stand out in your mind? Funny, absurd, or just plain stupid…

    I recently overheard this in a restaurant:

    “Every time I take my kids to the doctor, he makes them take off their shoes before the nurse weighs and measures them. And all kinds of people stand on that scale barefoot every day! You would think, being a doctor, he would know that isn’t sanitary.”

    Put some damn shoes on, dirty hippy. :)

    (That's me saying that to Karen. I'm a grown ass man, so I wear shoes;) )

    Entering a convenience store one day I held the door open for a woman on her way out. She had a cigarette dangling out of her mouth . She looked down at my bare feet and said "You're going to hurt yourself like that!" I told her she what she was doing was way more unhealthy than what I was doing. She had no reply.

    Overheard: "You need to have on shoes; you might drop something on your foot", said the guy wearing flip-flops.

  7. "You'll wreck your joints doing that - and you'll get an infection from the dirty ground" - duh, I wrecked my joints walking and running in ridiculously over priced shoes - I'm actually rehabilitating them doing this!

    “No Bare Feet” sign in the lobby of a Myrtle Beach (SC) waterfront condo building, 50 feet from their private pool, and 200 feet from the Atlantic Ocean. :confused:

    A cool Mom would reply: "Yeah, and isn't she beautiful?" and then take off her own shoes to follow in your bare footsteps... :2thumbsup: Hey, one can always dream about nice things happening.

    Happy barefooting. :daisy:

    Wiggling bare toes,

    I think they generally assume me to be like homeless joe. Some of them are afraid to say anything in my presence, and some flaunt it, because they don't take me seriously.

    Just smile :sunny:

    No Bare Feet - By Order of the Department of Health

    Print out the health department letter for your area, stick it in your pocket, and go there. If they say anything, say that, being a good citizen, you feel the need to inform them that someone is lieing to them, and it is actually not a health department rule at all.

    Then put up a fight about leaving if they continue to cite the sign as a reason -- only leave when they say that they simply don't want you. It would be fine if they personally told you to leave, or if they said that someone else did, but if they say that someone else did, when in fact that someone else did NOT..... make a scene.
  15. Yeah, it's weird how shoes were invented and people think you're really weird and maybe a little crazy without them.

    I wonder if, in years to come will you be considered a freak if you don't have an iPhone or something. Well, I guess in a way that's the same thing. If you're not in tune with generally accepted and widely practiced norms then you're considered a freak.

    I got some really nervous looks today while out clocking up a few barefoot miles. Like I was doing something pornographic. Really, it's a reflection of their own weakness and insecurities I think.

    I remember someone said "Successful people are those that are willing to do what others are not".

    I'm not sure how you measure success, but if I can walk ten miles a day for the next fifty years, without injury. Then, well - I'll consider myself successful.

    I have thought about that, but what if the LOCAL health department really DID tell them to put up such a sign, not knowing (or caring) that the STATE health department has no such rules.

    I was in Wally Mart the other day when this woman and her 2 boys were near me. The boy riding in the shopping cart said to his mom out loud "look mommy he has no shoes on!". I made eye contact with them (I usually don't) and just kinda smiled.

    A couple minutes later in another part of the store I found myself next to them again as I was pushing my cart, but this time the boy asks me directly "why don't you wear shoes?" to which I replied "I just don't like shoes". The boy tried to ask something else, but his mom was obviously a little embarrassed and whispered to the boy "he said he just doesn't like shoes". The other boy (a little older) was walking behind them and said "do you HATE shoes?" after which the mom quickly corrected him "we don't say 'hate'!". I just smiled and went about my business in another direction.

    Somebody asked "Where's your shoes" when I was in a public park, walking on grass. :mad: Stupid.

    I always make sure to mention, if asked, that I don't like wearing shoes when I don't need them -- nothing against shoes, and I wear the proper shoes for the activity at hand, it's just that no shoes are necessary for the activity I'm currently engauged in.
