Ok wait a minute, I have worn slippers going to pick up the kiddos at the mall or the theater late a night. Now I don't go shopping in the slippers. But I have worn them outside of my driveway.
Although I really don't gussy up when I go out and about....why should I. I am not impressing anyone. Like my favorite T-shirt says I am a T-shirt and jeans kind of girl...and flip floops!

There is a huge difference between just wearing them in the car and going into stores or eating establishments.

What if you had car trouble and had to walk to a highway exit or something, not at night, but sometime else--do you keep walking shoes in your car? Not flip "floops" either! I personally think those are dangerous to drive in. I've worn a sandal that got caught between the gas and brake pedals. I'm not that casual a girl, I guess. Don't agree with any of the current, don't care fashions at all. A lot of today's trends make me think (and bite my tongue to keep quiet), please have some respect for others when you're in public, if not for yourself. I think people think, like Lynne Truss said quoting Bart Simpson, I believe, "My bubble, my rules!" No!!!

I don't wear mine in the driveway, it gathers dirt, no thanks. I put on shoes to go get the mail. Noone outside will ever see me wear slippers! No way!

Much as I would love to wear my slippers out to the store or post office or whatever, I never would. First, it's classless and gross. Second, I would never be able to wear them in the house again! I don't allow shoes in my house due to all the filthy crap you can step in all day --- if I wore my slippers outside, I wouldn't wear them inside. I think a pair of "mailbox slippers" might be a good idea but ONLY if they stay by the door and are taken off before walking around in the house.

I also may be a little OCD on this, but even when I see people on TV walking through their homes with shoes on or (GASP!) getting on a bed with shoes on, it completely skeeves me out!!! I want to SCREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have sandals, but I don't think I'd ever wear house slippers out in public
