James was on his way to interview for a job at one of the most prestigious computer firms in the city. There were several applicants that wanted the few positions that were being offered. James arrived at the CEO’s office and sat in the waiting room with the other applicants. One by one each was called in for his interview. As the interviews went on and James waited for his turn to go in, he noticed that the applicants went into the office wearing shoes but came out in their stocking feet. A few left the office wearing shoes and left the building but most were in their socks and sat back down in the waiting room in their shoeless feet.
It was finally James turn to be interviewed. As he walked into the room, he noticed two tables with pairs of shoes on them. James was told to sit down and take off his shoes and put them on the interviewer’s desk. James asked why he had to do this. The boss said that he liked to interview people with their shoes off because it makes them more relaxed and they speak more honestly and he gets a better picture of their true selves. James figured that made sense so he took off his black dress shoes and placed them on the desk.
The boss then said to James, “After you are finished with the interview, you will be asked to place your shoes on one of these two tables. On table contains the shoes of those who have been hired and the other table contains the shoes of those who will not be hired. Only I know which is which. After I have done all the interviews, the table containing the shoes of those who have not been hired will be cleared and the shoes on it will be thrown away. I will then call everyone in to the office and those who have been hired will come in and retrieve their shoes.” James replied, “So those who are not hired will lose their shoes?” “Correct,” the boss said, “We have so many applicants that are clearly not qualified or do not interview seriously because they really do not want a job but have to apply for one to meet requirements. Therefore anyone who is serious about working hear and confident in his qualifications and abilities is willing to risk losing his shoes If you want to withdraw your application, you can put your shoes on and leave. Otherwise we will begin the interview.”
James then did the interview in his solid black socks. He was then told to place his shoes on the appropriate table. James then returned to the waiting room and joined the other sock footed applicants. After everyone was interviewed, the boss called everyone into his office. One table still had shoes on it and the other had been cleared of shoes. The boss said to all the applicants, “If your shoes are on this table, you have been hired. You may pick up your shoes and show them to the personal manager and you will get your offices and assignments. Those of you who have not been hired. Your shoes have been thrown away and you will not get them back.” James shoes were among the shoes thrown away.
The new hires then started their jobs while those not hired left the building in their socks.
It was the night of the dance and Shelly was sitting at a table. She was wearing a blue outfit with striped light and dark blue socks. Shelly came to the dance in sock feet as she never wears shoes. As she was sitting there, Gerald came up to to her and asked her to dance. She said that she would but on on condition. “You have to take off your shoes first,” she said. Gerald agreed and removed his brown loafers revealing grey athletic socks. Gerald left his shoes at the table and he and Shelly preceded to the dance floor in their socks. After a while they had returned to the table and Gerald’s shoes were gone. Shelly said that she was sorry that happened and Gerald went around the room trying to find his shoes.
After a while Charles came up to Shelly and asked her to dance. Charles was wearing black cowboy boots. Shelly said that she would dance with him if he took off his cowboy boots. When he asked why, she explained that she did not like people stepping on her feet with shoes on. At first Charles was reluctant to take off his boots for fear that he might lose them. However, because he always liked Shelly deep down inside, he removed his boots revealing white crew socks and went on to the dance floor. After a while he came back to the table where he had taken off his boots and his boots were gone. Shelly said that she was sorry about that and Charles started going around the room to try to find his brand new cowboy boots.
Later on, Robert came up to Angela who was wearing white socks with a brown dress. She also was not wearing shoes. Robert asked her to dance and she said she would but he would have to take off his shoes first. Robert then removed his black dress shoes and went on the dance floor with Angela. When they returned Robert’s shoes were not there anymore.
The dance had come to and end and it was time for everyone to go home. Gerald, Charles and Robert still had not found their shoes and had to walk home in their socks. It seemed that everyone who danced with Shelly and Angela wound up with missing shoes.
Last week an fan of my video came to cologne to see it live. I sit on a wall and took a rest. I posted where I am. Because the day was realy hard, I nearly fall alseep wainting, when I suddenly feel someone touching my shoes and although I tried to avoid it, I felt my shoes being pulled of my feet. First the right, then the left shoe.
Within seconds my feet were exposed and was sitting on the wall in my socks. The guy took my shoes, put them into a bag and walked away. I still was in shock ..left behind in my thin blue socks. He even filmed it and send the video to me to make the humilation complete..
I had to pass a lot of people walking without shoes on my way back…

Some time ago a ‘little sockwalk’ took an unexpected turn, I never had thought could happen! I stayed very long at the office. When only my boss and another colleague where present, I sneaked to an empty bureau. We use it as a relaxation room. I was sure they wouldn’t come in, shortly before they went home. I left my shoes under a chair and sneaked back to the door. I heard them talking from a bureau. I quickly went to the end of the corridor and hid in the mens room. Ok, safe at first. Suddenly I heard footsteps and my boss asked through the closed door, if I were inside! I quickly answered and she said they would leave now. I should lock the door, when leaving. I answered ok and heard her going away. I waited until I couldn’t hear them anymore. They were gone and I left the restroom. It was a thrilling feeling to sneak around the empty office in stocking feet. I went to the door to the staircase and listened. Absolutely silent. I got into the staircase and sneaked two floors upstairs. Suddenly I heard voices! “Bye Mike! See you tomorrow!” Oh shit! They were still there! I heard them talking while waiting for the lift. “Why did you lock the door? Mike is still inside. He is in the restroom. He will not notice if anyone comes in. And he has a key”. WHAT??? I got panic! Before I could react, I heard them entering the elevator. OMG! I hurried down! Locked! The door was locked! Frantically I pushed and pulled! I was trapped! I was sweating! My face must have been deep red! Oh no! Not only my shoes were inside, but also my coat, cell phone and house key!!! It would be the humiliation of my life, but I had to get them, before they left the building! I hurried down in my socks and stopped at the front door! Gone! They were gone! Panic set in! Suddenly laughter behind me! I didn’t hear her coming! “Locked out???” she grinned. It was a girl, from another office, I sometimes met on the train. Oh nooo! I stammered something about …. “Just wanted to look at something!” “In your socks???” Still grinning! NO … yes … I didn’t know an answer! Suddenly she took her mobile out and asked if she could take a picture! “This is so funny”, she laughed! I screamed “NO” and hurried upstairs! Oh my god! I waited for a long time, before I realized there was no other way! I had to get home like this! My neighbour has a key to my apartment and I hoped she was home! I sneaked along parking cars, to get to the station. It was chilly and rainy and no one runs around like this! The station was crowded and I waited nearby. Finally I hurried to the station, getting a lot of funny comments! On the train I tried to hide my feet under the bench but it was useless! Finally I made it home. Luckily my neighbour was home and I just told her, I got locked out, while looking at my post-box. “I saw you coming home, from my kitchen window!” she laughed (caught …) The next day I was the first at the office. I waited at the staircase until my boss, who always is first, was coming. When she opened the door, I quickly followed her. I said hi, and hurried to get my shoes from the relaxation room. They were gone!!! My boss was in the tea kitchen and I scurried to my place. My coat …. gone as well!!! From the kitchen I heard my boss! “Mikey, the cleaners called me yesterday evening. They told me, someone had forgotten his coat …. and his shoes at the office! They took them to my bureau!” Grinning she looked around the door …. holding my shoes and coat! “Oh, and Michelle from the insurance office send me a picture of you … on your way home! I send it to your mail-account.”
It is still very warm here, and when yesterday, at Christmas Eve I went to the Midnight Mass, i’d been wearing my dress shoes instead of boots, as usually in december. I had a place on the bench at the side nave.
Everything was fine until it came time Holy Communion. But when I’d been going back and wanted to
take my place on the bench, I tripped over the other boy’s feet (he had them on the pew). I thought I would fall down, but fortunately it did not happen. Less happily, my shoe fell off my foot and landed somewhere on the floor. I looked back, but I could not saw it.
I could only take my place as if nothing had happened. I spent the rest of the Mass without my right shoe, hoping that nobody would notice. The floor of the church is made of stone, my foot was cold quickly, so I put it on the top of my shod one. Of course, the boy, who was sitting next to me on the right side, he noticed that I only have one shoe. I saw that he suppresses a giggle, but he said nothing. After the end of the cowherd I had to pass him, so he could go to the main aisle. He said very quietly, “”What a bad luck.”” I started can seek my lost shoe. I found it under the bench before that my one.
