Two rights and still nothing is right.

The people that I work for are used to being surrounded by an motley crew of people.  They don't have many clothing restrictions for us, but there are a few things that they would like us to adhere to:

No rips or tears.
No spaghetti strap tank tops and please make sure that all of your parts and particles are properly covered all the way.
No open toed shoes.

This morning, I was running around trying to get some things done before work.  I was running in and out and since we don't wear shoes in the house, I had flip flops on.  Time ran short, I didn't have time to change my shoes so I grabbed some shoes from the shoe pile at the bottom of the steps and ran off and away.  I got half way to work and I noticed something.

I had two different Birkenstocks.  I had a black shoe and a gray t-strap.  (Both look the same from the back, especially since I was grabbing them from basically under the stairs.)

Both shoes were the right shoes only. 

I decided to risk it and go ahead with my illegal footwear.  Surprisingly, I wasn't questioned about it, but I did tell a few people what I did.  I am display staff, am used to twirling things around on the top of my feet (display boxes, large glass shelves, product), so wearing full shoes is something that is definitely necessary for me anyhow.  I had a display to finish, but nothing that involved anything heavy.  Still, I hung out behind the counter and tried my best to keep my feet out of sight. 


Smiles in my day:
-  Despite the 93 F temperature for K-'s 1st grade picnic today, she had a great time.
-  A/C.
-  K- got a 100% on her quarterly vocabulary quiz!  HOORAY!

Have a great day!

Oh, Amy! What a mess! Hee hee. :o)

Because I have a difficult finding shoes that are a)comfortable, b)attractive and c) that fit me well, I've been known to purchase multiple pairs in different colors of the same shoe. (Did that even make sense?)

So, I'm sure you won't be surprised to hear that when getting dressed and quickly grabbing shoes, on more than one occasion I've grabbed a left from one pair and a right from another and then had to wear them at school. All day. With fifth graders...hoo boy. :oP

The birks certainly looked the same from the backside. At least you had a right and left! ;)

HA! I thought you should have worn the mixed up shoes until I read they were both "rightys". That certainly won't work. I'm glad that you didn't reprimanded for illegal footwear.
