Well... That sucks for us Floridians. I have a flip flop tan because that's all I wear.
I seriously think half the people on this website are idiots or do not understand English. Why would you thumbs down the 1st comment? He had a legitimate point. There are so many good comments that gets thumbs down for god-knows-what-fucking-reason. As someone who grew up in Florida, moved to Boston, and now lives in Mississippi, I have to say that as a Floridian, I wore flip-flops almost all year-round. Even in Mississippi, there are some winter days where you can get away with flip-flops and shorts. Flip-flops aren't dangerous. People, on the other hand, are clumsy and can even make a hazard out of almost anything. :/ *waits for the thumbs-down train to arrive and attack*
Good grief, people. #1 did not say no one else wears flip-flops. She said it sucks for Floridians because they do. Did none of you take the SAT/ACT? If it is always hot in Florida, that does not mean it doesn't get hot in other places. Also, clumsiness is not the only danger in wearing flip-flops. Flat shoes, which most flip-flops are, cause foot, leg and back pain. Wearing extremely flat or extremely high shoes all the time can do serious damage to a person's spine. Wedges or thick-soled flip-flops with arch support are fine, even optimum, though.
The irony in this FML and the description makes me want to clip my own toenails before this happens to me.
Yeah, but you still have to worry about the possibility of the toe separating part cutting you while you're walking. My high school had to ban flip flops for years before it got renovated because some people would get the top part of their flip flops caught in the loose stair panels/grips while they were walking, causing the toe separating part to cut into their foot. So, have fun wearing flip flops!
Now I want to know how flip flops are dangerous, you left ne hanging OP :(
That's Murphy's Law, or maybe karma. Once a glass door fell on my foot and I had this crazy big blood blister on my toe. The doctors heated a safety pin and put a hole in my toenail to free the blood but I still lost it. Good luck with the healing process.
