Winner (me. I’m the winner. Because Crocs are terrible.)

Today’s rant is about Crocs. TL;DR: A friend from out of town came to visit. We went shoe shopping and at a sports store there they were again. What ARE these things? They’re called Crocs.

My story about crocs

Sam said I complain too much.

Honestly Robyn, who complains about daylight saving time?

He didn’t embarrass me by leaving a cranky public comment, so I thought I’d get it out in the open. If he feels that way, it’s more than likely there are others.

So next on the agenda: these shoes.

What are they? I’ve been noticing more and more people wearing them. The first time I encountered “them” I had to look twice. What the crap are those…but I let it go. I mean, the woman wearing them was middle-aged and I figured she was probably gardening before she came to class or something. I gave her the benefit of the doubt.

But then one blissful Wednesday, I noticed my cute Wednesday friend Rebound wearing a similar pair. Once again, I looked twice. He wasn’t gardening before he came to class. He’s a carpenter. You can’t wear those kind of shoes to work.

More and more I’ve been seeing them.

Update: Crocs. They’re called Crocs.

Today was the final straw. I couldn’t hold myself back. Here I am, driving home, minding my own busness when this bright red *thing* catches my eye. Ew! What is THAT?

Yes, yes it was. “That” shoe. Bright red. BRIGHT red. Distracting me from my driving duties.

I drove a block down the road. I could still see the shoes. And I’m not kidding. Nor exaggerating.

Hurt my eyes.

So tonight, as I wait for class to start I figure I should write down just how much these “shoes” bug me. But I need a visual aid so you know what I mean.

But what do I Google?

The winner is: garden shoes

I rest my case.

Crocs or garden shoes? What are they? I've been noticing more and more people wearing them. The first time I encountered "them" I had to look twice. What the crap are those…but I let it go.
