I've worked a few jobs were open toed shoes were not allowed due to safety.

I hate flip flops though. I hate the sound they make. I hate how they look.

Am I the only one who thought this thread was going to be about Helena and Currawong? :lol:

Seriously, though, I guess she wants to go home with chicken guts all over her feet.

Ewww thats disgusting.

I wonder why fundies like flipflops? Is it a requirement because of Gothard's foot fetish? Is it because its the only part of their body they are allowed to show off and it gets hot in a frumper? Is it because its hard to run in flipflops and if a fundie girl decides to run away her parents can catch her easy and drag her back home to the prayer closet or cage or whatever?

Why are they allowed to do this? We have seen fundie girls/women putting themselves in all sorts of danger with flipflops, like when the Duggar girls were cleaning out that house with all sorts on the floor. Have they never been told "You need to go and put normal shoes on, you could hurt yourself". Surely with parents so controlling, they would at least care more about their kids safety....its like as long as they arent going to dance or listen to rock music or do anything "sinful" it doesnt matter whether they catch something from stepping on a dirty needle, or end up in hospital with a nail through the foot, or break their foot from someone dropping a hammer on it.

I think it's just another manifestation of that famous fundie cheapness. Seriously. When you have to feed and clothe your ever expanding flock of "blessings" it's just easier to hit the Old Navy $1 flip flop sale for all your shoe needs.

Bwah!!!

I only wear flip flips around my apartment as slippers. I can't imagine wearing them in public. And to wear them in potentially dangerous environment? Stupid!!!!

They’re always on and on about modesty for the sake of ‘protecting’ their daughters, and yet it’s perfectly okay for one of the girls to work around large quantities of raw meat in sandals.

It’s not gross so much as just stupid. This should go without saying, but she needs closed-toed shoes at a minimum - assuming she values her feet, or the fact she's assumedly free of food-borne diseases at the moment.

^That

I also wonder if open-toe shoes are cooler when you're stuck wearing heavy long skirts in the summer.

My mom told me how her senior year of high school back in the early 1960s all her family could afford was a pair of flip flops for her - she was very unhappy because they weren't what the other girls had. Due to plain old poverty, not religious related. At least she lived in a warm climate.

For me, flip flops are for the locker room at the gym when I'm using the pool or as shower shoes while camping. The thing I don't like is that they eventually stretch to the point where it's hard to keep them on your feet, let alone the potential safety risks. I think there's a time and place for flip flops, and that there are other times when closed toed shoes are more appropriate.

I had a friend who went to some kind of Gothard camp and she said they weren't allowed to wear anything that showed their toes, actually. She felt like that was one way they took the modesty thing a bit too far.

Back in high school I used to wear flip-flops all the time, even in the winter. A lot of girls did. Now I'll wear them for quick errands if I'm too lazy to put on any other shoes, but that's about it.

In fundies' minds, flipflops are probably the next best thing to women being barefoot, which is one step from the pinnacle of female achievement, being barefoot and pregnant. Or something.

I hate the feel of anything between my toes. I find the concept of flipflops as "peasant shoes" as they require no real fitting--theyh are not too tight or too loose, they are just a light padding between your bare foot and the ground. Even real sandals reqire more fitting and giver more protection.

I think it goes along with the long skirts thing. Tennis shoes and boots look stupid with skirts. I think I'll leave my flip flops behind with my teenage years for the most part, but when I wear a skirt, I'll either wear heels, flip flops, other sandals, or Toms. I can't find much else that doesn't look dorky.

I am a flip flop lover. I buy nice cushiony comfortable ones and wear them whenever I am at home or running errands. I have since I was a kid. I don't like having stuff on my feet if I don't have to. In college I would often wear them even when I needed a winter coat.

That being said, I would never ever EVER wear them to work, hiking, cleaning out an old house, etc. It is unsafe and unhygienic.

My daughter, mid twenties, wears flip flops year round. Even during the winter and in the rain. I don't get it, but she really likes them and has at least two dozen pair. But I would never let her wear them while processing chickens. That is sooooooo gross.

Do birkenstocks count as flip-flops? Because if they do, I am guilty of wearing them all the time.

That being said - there is a time and a place. Wearing flip-flops in a slaughter house (or whatever that place is) is gross and disgusting - not to mention completely unsafe. Certain jobs require wearing appropriate footwear. Flip-flops, while wonderful on the beach or for hanging out, are not appropriate for any job.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
