Look, I was talking about people's attitudes about other people's footware, and specifically in the work place. Cool boots are cool. You guys are welcome to like shoes as much as you want to. I realize I didn't make that clear, but I was simply going off about the pettiness of small minded normal people in office environments. Hostile whispering you hear at the watercooler. That sort of thing.

Well, I could as easily have said "hair styles". And I think it happens in all office cultures to one degree or another. It's just that folks like us (that is, folks with better priorities) can't understand it. I mean, wtf?

hairstyles are quite a bit more conspicuous, though. in an office especially, where people's legs and feet are under the desk most of the time, you don't just casually notice someone's shoes. you'd pretty much have to be looking, i'd think.

shhh, hon. you done us a service, in how you let us talk about *our* shoes, because we all want to talk about *our* shoes. we know you aren't some kind of shoe-lover-hater. *g*

Well. *Your* shoes sound like they are very cool indeed.

we know you aren't some kind of shoe-lover-hater.

Good. I was worried.

Got it! :)

Why on earth would anyone pick on another person's shoes? >:( The equation should be Shoes = Function + Happiness - Pain. No matter what! Who cares what you wear to arrive at that result?

There is the essence of my post. Why, indeed? But people do, for some reason.

Some people got too damn much time on their hands.

oh great. now I'm convinced that all the shoe aficionados are over there saying snide things about my scuffed Docs... ;-)

I think it's all about listening to your inner punk.

"Do you know your boots are scuffed?"

"Fuuuuuuuuuck youuuuuuuuuu!"
