I’ve left my work shoes at one of the offices and need to get some more before Tuesday because we have clients visiting and they don’t seem to appreciate seeing me in my socks. I have therefore spend the last two hours *ahem, working from home remember* shopping for new shoes.
My method is very straightforward when it comes to shoe shopping. I march directly up to the counter, glare at the spotty twelve year old with the name badge and say in a loud and clear voice: “Please bring me all your size twelve shoes so that I may select an appropriate pair”. I have found that this method is better than selecting a pair of shoes and being told that they don’t have them in my size.
I have other criteria:
- I don’t want leather in my footwear;
- I don’t want heels, honestly I’m 6’4″ and don’t need to be any taller;
- I want laces and not slip on shoes, I’m all growed up now and I’ve been tying my own laces for over thirty years.
For some reason my search for new shoes has proven unsuccessful. I don’t understand it.
The Hildy tells me that some people actually enjoy shoe shopping.
I really don’t want heels.
