OMG!!!!! I have so much to say on this matter that I have started a separate "long fingernail" thread.

Long fingernails: What on earth are they for?

What's the difference between slippers and flip-flops? In fact, I'd rather see some people in slippers then look at their nasty feet in flip-flops!

I don't mind flip flops. I have one very nice pair that I paid $XXX (too much to mention!!!! ) for years ago. They look very classy, but I keep my feet clean and my toenails painted red.

Today I saw a young girl wearing Ugg slippers (yes they were slippers) at the mall!!!

Would you ever dream of wearing slippers past the end of your driveway? What is this world coming to?
People dress like slobs! I would never wear slippers or "house shoes" off my own property.

I've never worn slippers in public (don't own any) but I wouldn't necessarily be opposed to it... nor do I really care if anyone else wears them. They're just slippers, I don't get the big deal.

Used to see a lot of this in parts of Memphis. Once upon a time used to see a lot of women there in curlers too. Guess I should be happy that at least they weren't wearing face cream too.

"Help Me, Help Me, I just escaped from the local psych ward!"

I'm not sure that is the message I want to send when I step out to buy the paper and quart of milk.
