14- I understand that people other than those in Florida wear flip flops. It's so darn hot here though that that's pretty much all anyone wears in Florida all year round.

The majority of the United States is currently experiencing drought and record heat, so I promise you aren't the only ones who have it hot enough to wear flip flops. It's been 110+ here for almost three weeks.

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 s

Lol in Hawaii we call them slippers not flip flops. And a lot of people wear them all year round as well, including me.

In Australia they are called thongs and slippers are normally worn during colder weather. I'm lovin' someone picking on a made up word then getting pissy because someone corrects their English. It's better then the actual FML. Thumbs up all round.

Oh, you have a flip-flop tan because you live in Florida? Please, tell me more about how Florida is the only place where you could possibly get a flip-flop tan.

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-

I'm with you #1. I'm in Florida too!(: and wear only flip-flops/and open toe shoes year round. My work shoes are the only pair that are closed. **We understand other places also wear flip-flops but here, it's what the majority wear, even during winter. :P

In so cal flip flops are year round attire! Still better than heels I guess? Oh f*** it.... I love my flip flops!

#46 I don't know about flip-flops in the winter and I'm on the coast in Mississippi and it gets pretty dang cold here in the winter sometimes. Maybe if you're just going to check the mail or something but not to go out in lol.

Gulf coast? You do not know cold. Try someplace where they actually get snow every year. And then, people from Fairbanks will still call you a pussy.

It doesn't matter where the hell you live. Learn how to put on normal shoes. Flip flops are starting to become annoying.

I've always found them to be irritating, because when I'm walking I can constantly hear them. That annoying sound has prevented me from wearing them. I don't care how hot it is outside, that sound pisses me ff.

For about half a second I thought "I'm just going to cut my toes off so that doesn't happen to me" Then the logical side of my brain woke up

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!

no, you tie yourself up to a ceiling fan with a string tied to your toenail and then be surprised when you don't have a toenail anymore. (joke, haha...)

Reply

Well, I'm just saying it would be a pretty hard hit to rip off a toenail, something not easily accomplished by simply tripping.

I was told they were bad for you because they were flat and offered no arch support, but who knows.

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.

I think you need to read up on Hinduism. I doubt "karma" means adding a barely-relevant tale of woe to someone else's tale of woe.

Reply

I believe Murphy's Law is fitting and I did say "maybe karma" as I was uncertain. Sorry you did not like my story. :)

Murphy's law states that anything that can possibly go wrong, usually goes wrong I believe, it's related to the FML because the OP was warned about wearing flip flops despite the apparent danger and the worst possible thing happened. Problem solved!

Don't laugh at science, because it will usually end up laughing back at you. Are you sure it was about the shoes, and not political beliefs?
