A man just stole my shoes!!!


Off-Topic Discussions


Yes, this is a ranting threat!

An hour ago, me and my wife were checking an appartment to buy for our own. We had to take our shoes off, that's a standard procedure. There were some other people too to see the appartment. A middleaged man got out when it started to get crowded and STOLE MY SHOES!!!

The shoes I wore looked a little bit like the ones he presumably left behind - but I can't be sure if they were a) his shoes or b) the current tenant's shoes. So I couldn't take any shoes and had to go home bare foot.

The real estate agent doesn't have the piss-for-brains number. At present the thief hasn't called him. And why would that sucker call, anyway? Those shoes cost something like 250€. Which makes them THE SINGLE MOST EXPENSIVE PROPERTY I HAD AT THE MOMENT. Not counting the computer I'm writing this with, but still.

I just have to wait until tomorrow, then I'll call the agent. Again. I really do hope there's some honor left in the world and the man returns the shoes. Otherwise, I may have to call The Dynamic Duo of Old, namely Chuck Norris and Cthulhu. I'm sure they'll finish the job...

I understand your pain, brother.

While I was at the National Training Center two years ago, we were required to wear ballistic protective eyewear at all times. Train as you fight and all that. So there I am, walking around with my prescription inserts in my eye-pro, and one evening after my shift I head to the shower trailer.

After a passable session washing up (hot water is a luxury we don't always get) I step out and go to get dressed.

My eye-pro is not in my bag where I left it.

I search all around, under the benches, upend my laundry bag, everything. And I don't find it.

Some jackass went into my bag while I was in the shower and took my eye-pro. He didn't even pull the inserts out and leave me them. I spent the rest of the time pissed off and waiting for someone to comment on my being out of uniform.

I have made sure to have two pairs whenever I go to the field since then.

What the..?!? Why? If they're prescription he can't even use them! What a jerk! Doesn't matter it's an old crime, I'll call The Dynamic Duo on your behalf also!

Does the agent have an office/agency with a clerk or secretary? They might be able to track down the guy if your agent is being unhelpful.

One might have thrown the shoes at the departing thief for ironic purposes.

The inserts come out, and he clearly needed eye-pro. So he just took mine, because I obviously needed them less than he did.

Serves you right for not carrying them in a bag. I mean really...who leaves their shoes where any villain can make off with them. Thanks to you he now has a sample of the bacteria that flourish in your shoes - That's proliferation of WMD buddy. You facilitated Terrorism. prepare to be beaten with a rubber hose in a small dark room.

... why would a man spend that much on shoes?

Someone stole my shoes, towel and shirt when I was at a uni pool once. I really liked that shirt.

I walked back feeling quite free, since I only had shorts and a borrowed towel, but a bit baffled.

Yes I have. They're Italian, synthetic, come in size 14, with vibram soles that let me walk all day at work and then go hiking right after without getting blisters, with a grip so good i wanted to play the spiderman theme song while walking up rocks.

140 bucks. Wish I'd bought more of them.

You're bringing tears to my eyes man.

Never encountered expensive shoes that seem worth it.

The answer is in your question.

I just have a thing for good shoes, is all :)

And besides, good non-custom made shoes are really hard for me to find, 'cause my other foot is much bigger than the other. So when I find good shoes, I take them, be it Italian or Ikea.

Yes they do. As soon as they open (in about three hours) I'm going to contact them... And I don't have an agent, he represented the guy who owns the appartment we had a look on. Sorry for being shady.

As a side trek, we're moving because our neigbour wears these all day long, stares into our appartment and does some other things too I can't get into here. To get the picture right, imagine the outfit in black, add 100 pounds of weight and remove the glasses. He's known as The Borat Man and has become somewhat of a celebrity among my friends.

Ill join the party! Some lousy co-worker took my umbrella one evening during a thunderous down pour. I have to park some distance from the building I work at because the ramp is only 3 levels and many people work there. I have to wear at least shirt and tie and most days a suit. Guess what I was wearing this day? So anyways I told my boss and he sent out a mass email asking the basterd to return my umbrella. Three days later it was returned to the place it was taken from. So at least the robber returned my umbrella. Since I have dismantled a piece of my desk thats meant to hide power cords so I can slide my umbrella into my desk so its not in the common area any longer. I find it quite sad I need to take such precautions at my work place.

Here.

In space..
At this hour...

But seriously, that sucks when someone takes something that probably wouldn't have nearly as much value to them as the person they took it from. I have a 1980's Cannondale mountain bike that was one of the earliest aluminum mountain bikes. It was a 24/26 wheel bike with all the original parts. A piece of MTB history if you are a total bike dork. Some jagoff steals the front wheel while it is parked at the local train station. Lots of unlocked better, newer, nicer, cleaner wheels, but they take mine.

I'm a fan of cheep foot wear, but I am drooling over a pair of expensive Redwing work boots.

Fergie, I feel your pain.

In the middle of summer 2009, I was enthusiastic. I'd just bought a brand new Focus Mares Cyclocross bike.I had ridden only 100 kilometres with it and was feeling great. Summer was about to begin, I had a new great bike which was awesome to ride, life was smiling.

Then it got stolen. It was securely locked. In a locked storage room. But still. Someone must have known what he did. And guess what? That was ALSO THE SINGLE MOST EXPENSIVE PROPERTY I HAD AT THE MOMENT.

Fortunately I got a new one via insurance. That one I had to sell later on, because of very strange health problems cycling was causing me. But at that time I enjoyed cycling. And it was denied from me for a whole month before I got the new bike. The remembrance of this theft still makes me angry. Why isn't there some option to smite these b-tards?

If it wasn't for d##@+eads like you, there wouldn't be any thievery in this world!

We once had someone steal the lifeguards pocket mask.... while they were in the lake trying to drag out a drowned person. This hits both ends of the WTH scale as 1

Your theft could get someone killed and
What the hell are you going to do with it?

Qadira

I was in a holding cell for four hours for public intoxication. We were required to remove our shoelaces. I was taking a nap and I could feel one of my Stanley boots beginning to slip off my foot. I quickly repositioned my legs and ended my nap. Whoever tried to yoink them suffered de-feet.

That is the exact reason I invest heavily on shoes. But then I don't have any money left to invest on anything else. But I still want to choose good shoes over a good processor.

About them shoes, does anyone really wear these? Are they so good I'm being told or not?

I've seen people wearing them. Haven't asked them what they thought of them. I assume if you're wearing something that odd looking in public it must be because you like it. Or you lost a bet. Hard to know for sure. :P

Wow, hobbit feet ;-) I can´t really imagine that separating the toes like that is comfortable to wear. But I don´t have any experience with these.

Thought excatly the same thing :D

I'm planning to buy these as soon as my credit allows, I can share thoughts afterwards...

But seriously, anyone got stolen recently? Because this thread is turning from rage into shoes. Now what barbarian would do that?

Andoran

Barbarians hate shoes.

On that topic, I go barefoot whenever I can. Which is not often, except when it is.

When I was in the field people wore them instead of sandals. They stank, didn't dry out. Might work on a beach. They are a waste of money, wear out too fast, make you look like a toolbag.

When I was hiking I wore these http://rufduck.com/rubberbtwebpg/2114rublogger.htm - but my version had the spikes out and steel toes and a steel shank. Walked 10-15k a day in them.

Nowadays I wear bostonians.


There IS justice in the world!

The agent called me yesterday. The supposed thief had called in and delivered the shoes to the agent's office! Luckily, their office is just around the corner so I can pick them shoes later today!

I'm so happy I could dance all day long!

Andoran

yayy

maybe it was an accident

Maybe he really took the wrong shoes by accident - such things do happen. Good for you!

And right you are. And here I was blasting around, making violent comments about how other people are stupid and wrong and how I am right. Man, I could make a fine politician...

We better get to see a picture of these shoes.

My wife and my tenant swear by them. They do have to be well-sized, though, or else you end up with crazy blisters.
