I walked to work today and ended up with big horrid blisters on my heels. I thought I’d be okay wearing my Skechers instead of runners. Big mistake. As well as the blisters, the stupid velcro straps came undone about every 5 steps.
At lunch time I decided to go buy a pair of cheap slip on shoes instead of limping around. I ended up walking down to Swanston St cos I can’t afford to buy shoes in the “Paris end” of the city.
You know how this country has an obesity problem? Well I reckon we could solve a lot of it if people didn’t walk so freaken slow. What’s with that? I had my feet shredded to bleeding point with blisters and I was still trying to get around them. Plus have you ever noticed that the slow people walk, the most footpath space they take up.
I think it should be legal to punch people who hog the footpath with their slow walking while using their mobile phones! In fact it should be illegal to NOT punch them.
I checked out the shoe shops in the mall. What the hell is with shoes atm? I could get those canvas ballet flats or I could get thongs. Nothing else. And I am NOT wearing thongs to work even if they are fancy thongs. I refuse to be one of those people.
Then I went to Target and the best I could do was a pair of canvas slingbacks. It took me ages to find the right size while a bunch of feral kids ran around the store screaming their lungs out. I wanted to tell their parents to control the little shits but, of course, the parents were nowhere to be found. Then this white trash women started screaming at her kid to behave (he was the quietest kid in the store anyway, prolly to scare to make a noise).
OMG school holidays end next don’t they? Please, please tell me they do. What the fuck are these people doing shopping at lunch time anyway? They have the whole freaken day to go shopping but no, they have to shop during that half hour window I have to run into the city and get shoes for lacerated feet.
So I finally found a pair of size 10 canvas slingbacks and went to the check out. The slowest check out in the history of check outs. The girl folded every single thing with meticulous care. It’s freaken Target – since when do they even fold shit?
Got the new shoes on and they were a mile too big! Yeah I should have tried them in the shop but I’d tried a similar pair that fitted perfectly. Not only did the new shoes not fit, the sling back rubbed on my sore heels. They I tucked the slingback under my feet but my feet kept slipping out of the shoes plus they rubbed on the front of my feet and gave me MORE BLISTERS. I ended up putting my old shoes back on.
What a waste of time, I ended up doing more walking in the old shoes than I would have if I’d have just sucked it up in the first place.
So after work I went to my fave cafe and it was filled with more kids. Well teenagers. Why are all these teenagers at the cafe? Why aren’t they out tagging trains and skulling Stone’s Green Ginger and sniffing glue? They were very loud teenagers. Then two women came in and one of them spent the whole time telling her friend what a horrible person she (the friend) is. I dunno about you but if I went out for coffee with a mate and she abused the whole time, she’d be wearing that coffee.
So, to sum up, it’s been a shitty day and people suck. I did have an awesome vegie parcel (in pastry – oops) and some chocolate coated dried strawberries. I think I could have early PMT.
