Okay.. for context; yes, i do work there. But i was off that day and went to my job to grab a couple things (i work in a grocery store) I was stopped while i was picking out eggs by a woman who said “can you check in the back for more water?” I froze and said “uhm... i dont work here, lady. Sorry.” And turned back to picking my eggs. To which she says, “You do work here. I’ve seen you here before.”
Let me tell you the absolute.. frustration in my voice when i said this, “Lady. Ask someone whos not in a fucking dress and heels and looks like they’re working.” All i remember was hearing her say she wanted to speak to a manager (she even name dropped one of them) but.. yeesh. I dont want to go in the back of a dusty store when im off, i barely want to go in when i have to go in.
Edit; maybe i should clarify since im seeing these couple comments a lot
I do not have to do anything when I am not scheduled unless i was called in to work by a store manager or district manager. If i went in the back to look for and grab a case of water, i would be fired. Immediately. My whole outfit plus heels was an extreme safety hazard.
No, i was not fired nor would i have been fired for not helping someone when i was not working.
Like, they must don those strappy, heel-maiming death traps just for the photo, and then take them off immediately after, right? I am perplexed.
Also, I’m a first-grade teacher (for context). Why does everything have to be “cute”? “Cute” is never a necessity when we’re talking about quality instruction.
Today, I saw a teacher I follow post an activity that used flamingos as a theme for teaching non-fiction text features: “flaMINGLE with Non-fiction!” The books weren’t even about flamingos!! It would be so much more effective to use student interests to drive these themes if you must have them.
Disclaimer: I’m a young teacher, and I do care about my dress. I do like things to look nice. I just think TPT and social media have caused educators to place too much emphasis on “cute,” and it takes away from what we’re really there to do: to engage students and evaluate our impact on their learning (and freely move about/crouch down/run when needed in practical clothing).
Tysm for 1k karma guys! To celebrate, I'm gonna give someone my extra dv heels!
Good Luck everyone! :D

Edit 2 : OMG YOUR TIPS ARE AMAZING, JUST GOT MYSELD 3 HIGH HEELS, BEAUTIFUL SHOES AND M SO FREAKING HAPPY WITH THEM, THEY FIT, THEY DONT FEEL TIGHT, THEY ARE COMFY!
In The Last Olympian, Percy takes on "The Curse of Achilles" by bathing in the Styx. By doing so, he becomes essentially unkillable, with enhanced speed, strength, and reflexes, as well as invulnerable skin. However, it comes at a cost: he has a weak spot, where even a tiny wound can kill him. For his weak spot, Percy chooses the small of his back. He dismisses the thought rather quickly, thinking that it's harder to hit, and has some covering from his armor. However, there's a far larger, subliminal reason for his choice.
What is Percy's fatal flaw, that the goddess of wisdom straight up tells him? He's too loyal to his friends. Percy would sacrifice the world to save one of his friends, and because of his loyal nature, can't imagine his friends not doing the same.
And who is constantly covering Percy's back in a fight? His friends. We see dozens of mentions of Annabeth, or Grover, or Thalia, or Beckendorf fighting beside Percy, and in almost every case, there's a mention of them making sure an enemy can't get behind him.
In order to kill Percy, his friends would either have to fail him, or betray him, neither of which is possible in his mind.
His "America good UK bad" promo rubbed me the wrong way as an American. He's arrogant like a heel and it has probably pissed of the UK market. I got the impression that AEW is very popular there. They don't seem to be doing the Bret Hart thing where Cody is booed in one country and cheered in another either. The goal seems to be making Ogogo the heel everywhere. Anyone else feel the same?

My roommate, whom I used to have a romantic relationship with (we were never officially “dating”), made me feel like crap for wearing heels today. He no longer has feelings for me, so we’re just friends/roommates now.
When we first started out as friends, he never said anything about me wearing heels. After he started to develop feelings for me, he would make me feel bad whenever I wore them. I’m 5’4 without shoes and he’s 5’6?
Apparently, he has always been insecure about his height. There was a time where he made me feel bad about wearing heels, so I stopped wearing them for years. The weather was finally nice out for a change, so I wanted to wear a nice outfit while out running errands together. The only shoes that matched my outfit, were a pair of heeled sock boots that I own.
After he came home to pick me up, he saw what I was wearing and threw a fit. I haven’t worn heels in years out of respect for him and the one day I try to look good for myself, I’m made out to be the villain for it.
He said “My biggest insecurity is my height and you simply didn’t care.”
The errands included returning something at Costco, and he texted me saying “Returning stuff is already super uncomfortable for me. Standing next to you while you tower over me only makes me feel that much more uncomfortable. I feel so insignificant and tiny. I feel like I hold no authority.”
The heels were 4”, which would’ve made me 5’8.
