Last evening my wife and I went out to do our usual Saturday shopping and meal, we both had a taste for fast food and stopped by one of our favorite chains. Before we could even order our food the kid behind the counter said (looking at our Vibram shoes) WHAT ARE THOSE! Before I could shoot back with one of my witty comments my wife saved him by being her normal sweet self and explained the finer points of the VFF. Just what I wanted the Whole restaurant is now focused on our feet, I am really starting to get irritated but said very little and tried to get to let's order food now part of the visit. :P Well the visit went better and it did turn out to be a pleasant evening after all.
Sunday I decided to visit one of the local Home Repair type of stores, I could not find the item I was looking for so I asked for help from one of the employees. Once again the person looked down at my feet and almost freaked out saying WHAT ARE THOSE! Well I needed help so I answered giving the standard information, and I thought it was over and I would get help finding my item.
We were walking to the area for my item in question was and I swear the guy stopped in mid stride and looked down at my feet and said are your toes really in those little pockets? All kinds of smart assed replys came to mind but I squashed them and said yes and we went on to find my item. I will end the story right there, so what I would like to know is are my fellow VFF wearing people getting the same silly questions? Or did I just have a bad weekend and forget my since of humor? ;D
