Today, I was spending some time alone out in the countryside, when I glanced at my boot. I saw a snake, screamed, ran like hell for my car, tripped over my own feet, and smashed my kneecaps. Upon further inspection, I realized the "snake" was my loose shoelace. FML

So there was not, in fact, a snake in your boot?

How messed up do shoelaces have to be to look like a snake?

That shoelace sure did trip you up.

Next time you should tie your shoelaces.

Very carefully

Maybe Timberlands

Some baby snakes are often affectionately called a "shoelace with a mouth" by their owners and other snake lovers

My Docs' laces are round and the weave of the fiber could look similar to scales. Hopefully for OP, their laces were similar. Or at least not the ribbon kind. Also shoelace with a mouth is just the best thing ever

Maybe OP needs glasses.

"There's a snake in my boot!" No Woody, there isn't.

I can understand the unreasonable fear of snakes, but a shoe lace??? That'd have to be one skinny snake..

How does one even make that mistake?

That would be a really thin tiny snake. How Terrifying!

How big are your shoelaces??

We always see what we expect to see, one way or the other.

Well, at least you got away? Kinda of....
