Train ride

Author – shoeplayer

Last week I was sitting on a train. I’m very shy to be shoeless in public, but on the train it was no big deal. Many travellers do this on trains, so I was sitting in my stocking feet, shoes under my seat. I imagined, that my shoes would be stolen from someone sitting behind me, leaving me stranded in my white socks. My firm had send me to a training and I had only a small suitcase with things for 2 days. And my only shoes were my loafers under the seat. I love to secretly sneak around in my socks, leaving my shoes behind at quiet areas and I thought about my past ‘adventures’, where I really was stranded in socks, because my shoes were found and taken. I was sitting in the last compartment, in the last row. The train was quite empty. Could I risk a little ‘sockwalk’. Even for me it wouldn’t be a big problem. No one would pay attention. People were looking at their mobiles, laptops and books. And of course no one would steal my shoes under the seat. So trying to look casual (I was very nervous) I wandered down the compartment in my socks. The train was very long and I just walked from wagon to wagon. My only fear was, that the train might stop at a station and more people would enter. I didn’t know when the next stop would come. Finally I reached the dining-car at the front of the train. I turned around, to get back to my seat (and my shoes), when I heard the loudspeaker announcement: “Ladies and gentlemen, we reach the ….main-station in a few minutes”, and people stood up, to collect their suitcases! A man stood in front of me and a woman sitting beside me got up. To let her get her suitcase I had to move, but I couldn’t because the man in front of me blocked the way back! I stood there as if frozen and the woman now angrily asked me to move. I was jammed between the woman and the door to the dining-car and she still wasn’t satisfied, because she now loudly asked me to open the door and get in. before I realized it, I was standing in the dining-car! Only one table was occupied, and before the guests looked up and noticed my shoeless state, I took a quick seat at the next empty table beside me. My face must have been deep red! The train stopped at the station and when I looked out, I got a shock! The platform was crowded! Hundreds of people! OMG! Not again! My little ‘sockwalk’ got really out of hand again! Soon they all will be on the train. I would have to wait a long time, before they all found their seats! Then the steward came and I hid my feet deep under the bench. I ordered a beer. When he came I asked to pay immediately (so I quickly could get back, when all were sitting). Nervously I looked through the door! Hundreds of people surged in! Then I thought, this is maybe not so bad. I could just squeeze through the crowded aisle and go back. Nobody would notice my stocking feet. “C’mon waiter! Let me pay my beer”! But I couldn’t see him. Then something happened, I hadn’t thought about! New passengers entered the dining-car! Soon all the tables were occupied and the next people entering, three guys, asked me, to sit at my table! Quickly I moved over to the window and one of them took the seat beside me! I was trapped! Sweating and blushing I stared out of the window. Everytime the steward came, I asked him for the bill, but he was very busy now, with all the new guests! I just wanted to get out of here and back to my seat! My biggest fear was, that someone at the stop really stole my shoes, coat and suitcase and left the train! Suddenly the guys started a conversation with me. Where I’m from, where I go, if I’m traveling alone, etc. Even I was nervous like hell, I tried to act normal. But of course they surely had noticed my red face! If all this wasn’t enough, the guy sitting beside me lost his knife! Oh NO! he stood up, kneeled beside the bench to get the knife and, …”Hey dude! Where are your shoes???” OMG! They all looked under the table and had their fun! I stammered something about “left them at my seat”. I noticed even the other guests had fun! “That’s funny! You travel alone and you leave your shoes at your place?” one asked. “You can bet, if I’d noticed that, you would leave the train in your socks!” another grinned! I just wanted to leave! When the steward came, I just gave him a bank note! Before the guy could sit down again, I hurried out of the dining-car. The train was very crowded now. The aisle was blocked by people and I thought I never would make it back to my place. Then came the next announcement for another stop. People pushed me from the back to the exit and from the front a mass of people blocked the way. I was forced to flow with the mass of people to the exit! When I realized I would be pushed out of the train, I got panic and tried all, that this wouldn’t happen, but I had no chance! Suddenly I was pushed on the platform in my stocking feet and was dragged along with the crowd! Frantically I tried to get on the train, but a group of youngsters noticed what had happened, that I was in my stocking feet and had fun blocking my way, even dragging me with them! First when the train began to move, they quickly disappeared into the crowd of people! And I was left behind, in white socks, no coat, no luggage! How would I get out of this??? When I noticed a railway official I ran to him. He laughed when I told him, what had happened, but he immediately called the train driver. He asked me for my destination, so the driver could drop my things at the lost-and-found. Then I had to wait for the next train, to get there. While waiting on a bench, people were staring and grinning, I think some even took pics of me. Relieved I quickly entered the next train, and of course again got a lot of attention! Luckily my things incl. my shoes were found, so I finally got them back.

Dress guys dilemma

Author – shoeplayer

David was on his way to an important meeting. Normally he liked to wear casual clothes, jeans and t-shirt, but today he wore his finest dress. He was not used to wear a tie and he felt uncomfortable. He took his tie off and pulled his shirt out of his trousers for the long drive. He started very early. It took about 2-3 hours to get to the city, where the meeting was held. So he had a lot of time, when he came near the hotel, where the meeting took place. He decided to stop at a rest area near the motorway. He sat a table by a window, drinking a coffee and immediately started to play with his loose loafers. He loved to play with his shoes, slipping them off, sometimes even leaving them completely abandoned and unattended at public places. He loved the thrill, that his shoes might get kicked around and away, maybe even get hidden or stolen, leaving him stranded at a public place, in his stocking feet. But he only loved the imagination and the risk, it really could happen. And now, of course, he couldn’t risk the loss of his shoes.

David didn’t notice the guy, sitting behind him, enjoying his little ‘shoeplay’. He loved the white socks, a nice contrast to the black dress. He even thought, if he could kick one of Davids shoes down the aisle, when he left them completely off some times. But he didn’t dare. After some time David payed and left the restaurant. The guy observed David, as he walked back to his car.

Dave enjoyed his loose loafers, his heels often slipped out, when he walked to fast. David passed an old phone booth, which he already had seen from his place at the restaurant. He needed to go to the restroom, before he continued his drive. The phone booth obviously didn’t work anymore. People had mobiles and they maybe forgot to dismantle it. He entered the phone booth and got a crazy idea. He could leave his shoes save in the booth and run to the restroom, which was nearby …. in his stocking feet! The restaurant was far away. People who looked at him would think, he wore some white sneakers to have a more comfortable trip. He looked at the feet from people entering the restaurant. He couldn’t see, what kind of shoes they had on, so they likewise wouldn’t notice his stocking feet! Could he risk that? Slowly he slipped of his loafers and left them in a corner of the booth. No one was nearby and he didn’t see anyone entering the restroom. The restaurant had his own toilet, so this small hut seemed abandoned. Slowly he left the phone booth and hurried to the restroom hut. He quickly entered a stall. OMG, he did it! He was in his stocking feet, shoes left behind, close to a meeting, far from home! He was trembling!

The guy in the restaurant always had his eyes on Dave. He noticed, when he left the phone booth. He immediately knew what happened! He just saw a shy ‘sockwalker’, who ran to the restroom in his stocking feet! He was fascinated! He wanted no more, than steal this guys shoes and waiting for him, to come back! But he was sure, the guy quickly would come back and he had not enough time, to get to the booth. It was to far away. Suddenly he saw a mother with her two boys coming to the restaurant. They passed the both and the boys were chasing each other around it! Then they stopped and looked into the booth. They opened the door, one went inside and came out …. with the black loafers!!! They ran to their mother, who already had entered the restaurant. Before the boys followed their mom, they threw the shoes onto the roof of the building! The guy couldn’t belief his luck! He soon would see a shoeless guy, hopping back to the phone booth, to find out …. he was stranded in his white socks!!! He got his camera out, which had a good zoom, placed it on the table and zoomed the phone booth in as good as possible …. and waited!

David got very nervous in the stall! He heard some voices outside and didn’t dare to get back to his shoes! But he couldn’t wait to long. He had to get to the meeting and the longer he stayed at the restroom, the higher was the risk, somebody maybe really would find his shoes! Finally he sneaked to the door of the hut and peeked outside. Nobody was around. He hurried back to the booth …. and got the shock of his life!!! Oh NO! His shoes were gone! Frantically he entered the booth and looked everywhere for his loafers! Gone!!! Terrified he looked around! OMG! Someone found his shoes and picked them up! Maybe him or her had already continued their tour with his shoes, not knowing they left him behind, in his stocking feet! David got panic! He couldn’t go the meeting like this! He couldn’t go anywhere!!! Trembling and sweating he remained in and near the booth for a long time! Shit!!! Why couldn’t he stop his crazy ‘shoeplay’? It was a chilly day and his feet got cold! Before some people from the restaurant might get notice of him – a strange guy – sneaking around an old phone booth, he hurried back to his car …. only to find out, his nightmare would continue!!! A group of bikers had just stopped beside his car! He quickly turned around and ran as fast as possible, in his thin socks, back to the restroom! He heard them laughing! Hiding in a stall again, he desperately was pleading and praying, that the bikers wouldn’t follow him ….

The guy in the restaurant stopped his camera, left the rest area and drove home …. with a big grin on his face!

Well, fiction …. or truth??? 😉 (pw: shoesloser)

Night out

Author – shoeplayer

one night i was out with some friends at the bars and dance-clubs. because we live outside of town, one of us was driving. it was about 2 am, when my friends wanted to go home. i didn’t, so they left without me and i would take the train home. only a few minutes after they left i noticed, that i had forgotten my coat in the trunk of my friends car. oh shit! it was a cold night and a look in my purse showed me, that i hadn’t enough money for a cab. i even left my cell phone in my coat. i ran out, hoping to catch them. i didn’t find them! now i just wanted to get home and i scampered as fast as possible to the train station. i had loose loafers on my feet, so running wasn’t easy. at the station i got the next shock. i had to wait more than 1 hour, before my train departs! it was cold and windy at the station, so i couldn’t wait there. i left the station and ran down a main road, to warm up a little. i was relieved, when i saw an open front door of a multi-story building. i sneaked inside and closed the door. it was about 3 o’clock and the house was deathly quiet. behind the stairs was a gap, where i crouched down. a perfect place to wait. it was warm and i couldn’t be seen unless someone would look behind the stairs. after a while i got boring and left my hiding place. i wanted to explore the house a little. my loafers were clacking, so i slipped them off. i sneaked back to the gap behind the stairs to drop them there, but feeling a little thrilling, i placed them directly at the front door. then i sneaked up the stairs in my stocking feet in the dark. the house had six floors and when i reached the top floor, the lights in the stairwell suddenly were switched on! i had quiet a shock and stopped breathing! i heard footsteps and then the front door was opened. someone was leaving the house. then it was silent again and i waited until the lights switched off. i hurried down to find my shoes … were gone!!! in panic i looked around … and found them. through the glass of the front door i saw them! the person who left the house just dropped them outside on the sidewalk. relieved i hurried to the door, to quickly collect my shoes. locked!!! oh no, the door was locked! desperately i tried the handle again and again. first then i realized, that not only my shoes were locked outside, but that i was locked in … with no way out! i was trapped! i couldn’t ring at any door for help. how would i explain that?! trembling and sweating i sneaked back under the stairs. i had to wait until someone else left the house, hoping he wouldn’t lock the door. from time to time i sneaked to the front door to see, if my shoes still were outside. after an eternity i heard that someone opened the front door with his key and the lights were switched on. i crouched in the furthest corner behind the stairs! i heard two guys joking about my shoes! i only partly understood what they said.
“… he he, … long night out”,
“… home in his stocking feet”,
laughingly, i heard them disappear in one of the apartments. first when the lights switched off again, i dared to leave my hiding place … and got the shock of my life! i couldn’t see my shoes through the glass door! panic-stricken i tried the handle. this time i could open the door. frantically i looked around for my shoes. they were gone! the guys had taken them! behind me i heard the front door closing. there was no way back into the house. i looked at my watch. it was past 5 o’clock. more people were on the streets. shivering from the cold night and my humiliation i tried to find a way out! i didn’t dare to look at the people i passed! i just hoped nobody would take a picture or film me with his cell phone! it happened! someone obviously had his fun, filming me … and putting it online!

Office Mistake

Author – Shoeplayer

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.”
