Social Experiment: Shoe’s Untied.

So I bought a new pair of shoes about a month ago. They were on clearance at Target for $8, how could I pass that up?! Technically I should have since they were 1/2 a size smaller than what I wear but they are doing the job so far. My big toe clicks at night when I wear them…I wonder if that’s a bad thing?

The other issue with them is that they come untied fairly regularly. Being one that enjoys video games, I decided to make a game out of this. I walk quite a bit at my day job and end up tying my shoes three or four times a day. So instead of doing that right away I decided to see if I could make it back to my office with my shoes untied and see who would be helpful and alert me of my impending possible danger.

I did this for the majority of this month and, while some days my shoes stayed tied, I had a total of 23 attempts at my little game. I am pleased to report I made it back to my office 23 times without falling over or tripping! I am concerned to say that every time I made it back to my office my shoes were still untied.

No one stopped me to tell me my shoes were untied. That’s a 100% failure rate on my co-workers. I tried too! I put it out there, made sure I walked through populated areas of the building and hung around a little extra. But no dice.

So either my co workers are all jerks, or they want me to fall down on my face. Interesting.
