Flip Flops


These are flip flops.

They can also be referred to as thong sandals.

They are not called "floppers" or "flippy-flips" or any other cutesy name you call them at home. So if you're asking me for a pair of size nine "flippies," I'm going to give you a blank stare and pretend I don't know what you're talking about, then say "Oh, flip flops?"

And then you'll feel stupid.

So try to call them by their name.

  1. I hate it when people call them "thongs" or anything with that word in it.

  2. I call them my flops - for good reason - if I wear them I tend to trip over the front and "flop" onto my face on the pavement.

    Hence why I don't sport flops EVER.

    p.s. I got a new job!

  5. When I worked at the OD, we had people all the time say, "Where are your cartilages?" (talking about ink cartridges). And I'd just laugh at them. Couldn't help it.
