Ever seen those signs “No shirt, No shoes, No admittance!” With all the new clothing fades it seems as though people wear sleepwear anywhere and pants far below the buttocks!
I’ve seen them wearing lounge pants in the grocery store, library, bank and taking walks. I guess that’s how others save time! Roll out of bed and do the daily tasks before getting cleaned up!
Now that is scary! This is a fad … but with about 15 million people walking around with diverse TBI problems and other brain dysfunction anything must go! They go without shoes, they go in slippers, they go half dressed, they go without combing hair, they go and go and go … anyway they can get through the day!
Unfortunately, these are the same people that will be arrested for indecent exposure or any number of things. Yet, the everyday person is wearing attire inappropriate and that’s acceptable! How does that happen?
I recently found myself on the go and until one mushy moment I didn’t realize what I had forgot! In the winter I wear slippers and I’ve been many places in slippers … it just wasn’t the Cinderella slipper!
What has become of life that people are too busy to bend over and clean up after their four legged furry friends … dogs! I love them, but I dislike that it seems beneath some others to clean up … when it’s their responsibility! It’s not forgetfulness, it’s deliberate of owners to walk away without taking care of their personal responsibilities in life … but
If I’d only watch where I was walking! Ge’ez, if only I wouldn’t walk around aimlessly or clueless! If I’d only remember to wear shoes all the time! If I’d only clean up after others! If only and If only and If only. I only know this … It’s just more sh*t and it washes away quickly! Most sh*t in life doesn’t wash away!
Awe, how fortunate I am! When I stepped in it, I remembered after washing the feet to put on the shoes! I guess this was similar to my alarm reminders. It was just a different type of alarm!
Besides, I might not have noticed I stepped in dog (sh*t) poop if I had shoes on further tracking it into the car, store, or house could be worse! It’s better to keep the bacteria and mess outdoors than carry it indoors! If that happened many others would be blaming my stupidity and shouting ignorant comments as though they were so perfect!
It was just a little messy, but I walked away with clean feet and a reminder what I forgot! The shoes were on and my day continued without skipping a beat! I’m blessed because I had sensation in my bare feet!
What have you done that you felt others would blame on you, injury, or illness but yet it happens to everyone and at least you had a good laugh over it? Share your laughter with us!
