Issues of Shoes!

Hubby took my FIL to Doctors yesterday. When it took him longer than normal to return, I called up and this is the conversation that followed.

Hubby: Hullo
Me: Hi, where are you? Isnt the check up done?
Hubby: Yeah, it is.
Me: Oh, then are you driving back? Listen I need 1 kg potato.
Hubby: No, I haven’t started yet.
Me: Then? Buying medicines?
Hubby: No, I am in the shoe shop!
Me: Shoe Shop?
Hubby: Yeah, someone stole my shoe!
Hubby: I had left it outside the clinic. (This is an eye clinic and the doc insists that people take off their shoes before entering his sanitized domain) I don’t know HOW but when I came out, I saw them missing and instead someone had left his old pair of shoes behind. So, I trotted down to the nearest shoe shop and just bought another pair.
Me (laughing): Why did you keep the shoes there?
Hubby (irritated): Arre, did I have a choice or what?
Me: Why does this happen to YOU only? You bought the shoe only last month, remember?
Hubby: OK OK, I am driving now (which I doubt.. he just wanted me to shut up..:)
Me: OK!

BTW, the last pair of shoes he lost was at a temple. He had gone to attend a function of a family friend . Trying to be extra smart, he chose a well hidden spot behind a shrub to keep his shoes. The shoe-thief was no less. He must be having good olfactory modality. He smelt the shoes, yes he did. If the thief is reading it, I must advise him that we need more like him on our police force. Maybe he should apply there.
Anyway, so the thief neatly put his own shoes there and took my hubbys away!

Then there was that incident when someone had an identity crisis recognizing her slippers and took away my MILs, outside a house where we went for haldi kumkum!

So, whats the moral of the story?
Ring in the new but don’t ring out the old. Keep an old pair of shoes for some SPECIAL occasions!

oh god, but I know some misfortunes keep stalking some people!
Particularly if you lose your footwear there is no way you can move around without immediate replacement. keep a spare pair in the boot just in case!

Thanks Usha. Maybe we are just plain careless!

Oh dear...thats my dad for u..someone even stole his shoes in the train!!!

Just Like That August 27, 2007 at 1:14 PM  

LOl LOl oh dear, I shouldn't be laughing, and I'm not indeed. I was laughing at the ok, ok, I'm driving now... A more perfect way to end unwanted advice/converstations....! LOL.

And I agree with Usha- some feet are plain unlucky or lucky;-)
my sis wore a fit-to-throw-away pair to the temple festival, and it got stolen!

It happened to me too. I had gone with my hubby to ortho doctor and when i walked out all slippers were there except mine. I have corns in my feat hence i cannot walk without sandals properly on tar road. We caught an auto and reached home.Sigh! My friend has some darny slippers and he loses them every month-at temples, family functions..he is so slippers unlucky:-)

Exactly ..temples are one of the few places where you can wear your worn out slippers confidently :D

WhatsInAName August 31, 2007 at 3:35 PM  

So I see that you have been there and done that. I can imagine the pain :)

Swati :
