Okay so this happened when I was walking to the canteen for lunch and the way I had gone I had to go outside and then around the building and back into the canteen, the door leading outside was a one-way glass door with a push bar in the middle and also had a small lip just in front of the door. at the time I was wearing some flats with nylons just normal schoolgirl stuff and completely in a world of my own as I went to step through through this glass door and in my haste my foot hit the small lip at the bottom of the door causing me to trip over it and stumble through the door falling into some railings outside, and as you might have expected I lost my shoe during this.
Normally that would be fine just get my shoe and go on with my day but not so simple as my shoe had dropped behind the lip behind the door, which had by now shut itself…yaaay for me! So my though process was that if I went around the building to get my shoe then by the time I get to my shoe someone might have taken it by then, so to avoid that I thought I’d wait by the door to see if someone could open the door for me so I could get my shoe. solid plan I thought but it all came apart when some little snob from the year or two below me came past with his friends and saw my flat on the floor he saw me and looked back and fourth between me and my shoe, I asked him if he could open the door so I could get my shoe but noooo he had better ideas as he picked it up and his friends were telling him to take it he waved my shoe in my face by the glass taunting me saying if I wanted it why not come get it etc. They were staring at my foot literally laughing I dare say had his friends not been there he probably would have given it back but I guess the peer pressure got to him as his friends egged him on that they should take my shoe, which is exactly what they did they picked up my flat and continued walking down the hallway laughing and giggling whilst I shouted at them through the door and that’s the end of the first time someone stole my shoe, I didn’t know who they were or where they went even with teachers help I never got it back 😦
