Bela I’m sorry to hear about your office crush not noticing your waywt uniform challenge. However I am a little caught up on a detail you briefly mentioned. Your replacement doesn’t wear shoes in the office? Only socks? Is this common in your workplace?

I've been known to walk around in just socks, if I cycle in wearing clippy shoes I usually won't slip my Clarks Desert Boots on until I need to go to the Loo.

As such I'll maybe have a mooch over to the drinks fridge, a sit at the lunch table and wash up my cereal bowl, all in my socks until about 11 when nature calls.

Last week I went to get the office door when someone knocked, in my socks, opened it up and it was the sales manager, first thing he says is "where are your shoes?, Had to explain (leaving out the 2 hour gap ofc)

Not my manager tho so B-)

This is not an English thing. I've never been anywhere (apart from photo studios where you need to be careful to keep the floor clean) where you just go around in socks like a total animal. I'm all for going barefoot but SOCKS seems like the worst of all worlds.

It's all the inconvenience of being barefoot but with the added benefit of being able to get your socks dirty and/or wet.

It's actually really telling you're all mentioning "dirty socks" , implying you're not wearing black socks to the office

Which is the bigger crime

currently away for work, hotel room mirror

What about people who run in the office. Not like, people who go running and work in an office. People who run from one part of the office to another like it's an airport.

Tech lead types seem particularly inclined to do this.

Maybe the basic judgement is

Never put your face in your hands - > Senior management material

Run through the office - > Tech lead material
