Left on the train

Author – Joop

I live in a small town in Holland. For entertainment I have to take a bus to the nearby town then a train to the nearest big town. It is only twenty minutes away so it isn’t to bad. Last week I went there to the cinema. I was wearing dark blue jeans with white socks and my new vans. But after I got to the cinema my left shoe was hurting my heel so when in my seat I took the left shoe off. The first thing was some guys came into the row and I had to stand up to let them pass. After they had gone I couldnt find my shoe. It had been kicked away. It gave me a strange feeling thinking I had lost my shoe. After the film I found it some way away so I was OK after worrying about not finding it and having to go home without it. I found the idea a bit sexy though! I went to the station and got the train back. The left shoe was hurting so much that on the train I took it off again. I must have dozed off to sleep and I woke up with a jump and saw that i was at my stop. I jumped up and got off the train just as the doors closed. As my feet hit the concrete platform I suddenly noticed that I had left my shoe on the train! There was nothing I could do. I went to the bus station which is outside the rail station and waited for the bus home. I tried to hide my foot, but with white socks it was hopeless and a few people noticed my foot without a shoe. This very strangely made me feel a bit aroused and I had to pull my sweater down a bit to hide the bump in my jeans.

More people noticed on the bus and I was feeling very uncomfortable by the time I got home. I couldn’t stop thinking about doing something about the bump that wouldn’t go away!

Flying out

Author – David

 Last autumn I was feeling a bit down in the dumps so I booked myself a holiday in Cyprus, flying out from London Heathrow. I traveled to London by train, then got the tube train to the airport. I had to change lines and there was some delay on the last line and things were running a bit late. When the train came in there was a crush to get on and someone stepped on my heel and my shoe came off and fell down the side of the platform. I was already a bit late but I had to let the train go and try to get my shoe back. An employee looked along the track but said that there was no shoe there; maybe it went off with the train! I stood on the platform with sand coloured socks and one, left, dark brown shoe. I got the next train and dashed to the check in where they told me that the last call had been made and I should run. One of the staff came with me and hurried me through security, then I ran for what seemed like miles and got to the gate and onto the plane. The door was closed behind me and I was shown to my seat by a male flight attendant who said loudly “Have you lost your shoe?” So half the passengers knew

I arrived in Cyprus on a Saturday evening. No shops open until Monday! So I stayed around the hotel. Then on Monday morning I walked into the town wearing the left shoe and went to a shoe shop. The owner was amused that I had walked there with one shoe, and was surprised that I wanted to keep the odd shoe. I brought it back with me and have kept it as a reminder of a stressful but exciting trip. I sometimes wear just the one for fun!

Payback

Author – Dennis 

 Just before New Year I was in the city one evening and went to have a coffee and something to eat. The place I chose was very busy so I went to the room upstairs. There was a group of young lads sitting at a table close to the top of the spiral staircase. One of them was wearing a pair of old worn loafers and had his legs crossed and was balancing  his right loafer on the end of his toes. The temptation was too much for me! As I passed him I knocked his shoe with my leg and it fell off. Not only did it fall off but it bounced and fell down the stair well to the ground floor. He was not pleased! I offered to go and get it , but he said he would do it himself, but said he would not go down the iron stairs in his socked foot and asked what size shoe I had. I told him 7. Then he asked for my right loafer. I gave it to him and he put it on and went down the stairs. When he returned he was wearing his own right shoe and didn’t have mine. He said that I could pick it up on my way out. So I got my eats and coffee and had it without a right shoe. While I was eating the group of lads left making fun of my missing shoe, so a lot of people saw me. When I was ready to leave I went down stairs to find my loafer, but couldn’t see it anywhere. I asked if anyone had found it but was told no. So one of my dreams came true; I had to get home with only one shoe. It was a strange feeling being in a busy place not properly dressed!  A strange but very exciting feeling! I must try to find a way of losing a shoe in public again; it was so sexy! 

Walk of shame

Author – Jman

This year the new PE teacher implemented a new policy regarding those who came to class without their PE kit and shoes.  They would have to spend the class period walking around the gym with their shoes off.

The headmaster felt that this would also be a good way to spend a detention so detentions were held in the gym and for one hour after school “bad kids” would be in the gym padding around in their socks.  This became known as the “walk of shame.”

Needless to say, a friend and I got detentions for talking in class.  I was embarrassed about getting a detention since this was my first one.  My friend had gotten several detentions before.  He said that it was not the worst thing that could happen.  He did suggest that I wear two pairs of socks to the detention for extra cushioning when walking.  So I did.

The time came for the detention.  We waited outside the gym changing room.  When the door was unlocked we went inside.  we sat down and began to unlace our shoes.  We took off our shoes and left them under the bench and we proceeded into the gym in our stocking feet and sat down.

The detention supervisor then told us to begin walking.  We walked around the gym with our shoes off.  It was not that bad on the feet.

When the detention was over, we proceeded to go to the changing rooms to get our shoes.  However, we were not able to get them back.  There was a ball game that night and the visiting team had placed their equipment in the locker room.  It was explained to us that once the visiting team was there, no one was allowed in.  We replied that we just wanted to get our shoes.  That did not matter.  We were told that we would have to wait until after the game and everyone had left before we could go in there to get our shoes.

We attended the game in our socks and received lots of comments and questions about not having shoes on.  After enough of this we decided to go into the changing room during the game when no one was looking to get our shoes.  

We left the changing room, we were caught coming out and were asked why we were in there.  We explained that we needed to get our shoes.  We were told that no one could go in the changing room while the opposing team was there because if something of theirs was stolen, we could get blamed for it.

The next day we were called into the head master’s office for breaking the rules.  He told us to take off our shoes and he put them on the shelf.  We would get them back after serving another detention.

Christmas party

Author – TWG 

 This happened a few weeks’ back and was kinda fun. I was at a friends’ Christmas get-together in the Midlands, with about thirty people. My friend’s flat is essentially one open-plan room above a shop, so the chairs and tables were moved so we could all sit in a vague circle and mingle. Despite the large number of people there was a lot of space to move about. 

Quite late in the evening, one of my friends who was sat on an office chair suddenly grabbed the black and white DC’s of another guy who was sat on an office chair, and started spinning him round the floor by his feet. We all moved out of the way and laughed as he was catapulted about, but his shoes were quite loose so it wasn’t long before they came off in my friend’s hands. As soon as this happened the other guy went crashing into people and chairs and was thrown off his seat, while my friend leapt to his feet with one of the shoes in his hand and ran to the door, throwing it down the stairs. The other guy was getting quite annoyed by now, so rescued his other shoe and stormed off wearing just the one. He eventually found it and sheepishly came back upstairs, and the party carried on like nothing had happened…

Shepherdess Mass

Author – Andrzej

Together with six other kids, I was supposed to sing Christmas carols during the Sheperdess Mass. This December is abnormally warm – on Christmas Eve it was almost 10 Celsius degrees above zero, so instead of boots I wore my dress shoes. Our group had to enter the choir stalls before the service will began. But the lock in the door closing the stairs to the choir, however, became jammed and the organist managed to open them at the really last moment. When we ran in a hurry up the narrow and winding stairs, I stumbled and fell to my knees. I got up and started running upstairs and only then I felt that I had lost my right shoe. During my fall it must have fallen off my foot and left somewhere behind me on the stairs. I stopped for a moment, but I realized, that I’ve no time to go back and look for it; anyway, in the dark it would be difficult for me to find my lost shoe, because the church worker had already turned off the lights in the church. He was to light it again when the priest stood behind the altar, but then we should start singing the first carol. So I joined my friends on the choir stalls – wearing one shoe and only a sock on my right foot. I could comforted myself that there is not much light in the choir, my only shoe is black and I was also wearing black socks, so maybe the others will not notice anything. So I had to spend the entire Shepherdess without one shoe. I felt very embarrassed because of that, thankfully none of the other six saw anything, until the moment the mass ended and we had to go down, because then the organist turned on all the lights on the choir and on the stairs. They teased me a little as we were descending downstairs. And when I found my lost shoe in the middle of the stairs and I had to stop to put it back on my foot.

Shuttle bus Shoeless

Author – Shoelover 

Today I went on the ferry bus shuttle and naturally I took my black Nike sneakers off because they were hurting my feet from walking in them all day. As I lied down on the cushioned seat, I paid no attention to the people ahead of me or behind me. Even if they did give me weird looks as I displayed my white socked feet hehe. Then the driver stopped short and my sneakers rolled to the front of the bus. I got nervous where they rolled to but I decided to look for them after the bus ride and when I looked around to the area where I thought they were,there was no sight of them! I got really excited now because now I had to walk to the ferry and walk around in my socks in unfamiliar parts of the city. It was embarrassing and I got a lot of snickers as I was walking around. I do have a funny suspicion the shuttle driver took my sneakers though.
