Hey guys, I'm the OP, for those worried about the grossness of the floor, the cleaners had just been in (the wet floor sign was still there), so I just took off the other sandal and looked a bit of a bogan, but better than replacing everything in my wallet! And for the record, my bag was not on the floor, it was resting on my (previously sandalled) feet. I've never noticed any hooks in the stalls, but then I've never expected someone to try and nick my bag either.

Better than your bag!:) Be glad you escaped with only one shoe stolen and not your bag, still rotten of a person to do though. And you got enough common sense to hold your bag even at places like that, so cheers:)
It's stll much better, #30. Washing your foot, or even hopping on one foot, is a lot easier than cancelling credit cards, closing bank accounts, issuing credit fraud alerts, getting new identification, getting locks changed, etc. Wrap some paper around your foot and check the bins. The thief may have chucked the shoe there.
30 - Get your wallet or purse stolen then come back and tell us which is worse. I've had A credit card stolen and that was a lot worse than a stupid shoe and having to walk in the floor. It's not like you're going to lick your foot afterwards (I hope). I can't imagine how horrible it'd be losing my whole purse.
Honestly i think it would have been best to finish your business quickly and inform the security or a worker of what transpired and wait outside the restroom for the thief, if the thief already ran away (best option for the thief, but there are plenty of dumb criminals) it would still be worth telling a worker of the restaurant or where ever you were, maybe they would reimburse you for your lost shoe.
You put your bag on the floor? Next time hang it. So thieves and bacteria cannot get to it.
55 - Some places don't do the side hooks because people knock into them which rips them off the wall eventually, they get snagged on them, or their clothing gets snagged on them. The ones behind the door are less likely to have those issues. I agree with the person who said put them over the back of the toilet; that makes the most sense to me.
Gosh darn it! Just when u thought it was safe to have a wee. Is nothing sacred anymore?!
Better your shoe than your bag! Also, why would you put your bag on the gross bathroom floor? Hang it up on the door next time.
