Pizza

Author – Ade

Back in 2013 I worked as a pizza delivery driver. One evening I had to go to this area named brookside. I parked up and got out my car. I then leaned into my car to get something, suddenly 2 guys walked past and took my shoe off and threw it into someone’s garden. It was around 8pm in November so it was dark. I had to knock on door to get my shoe back.

I lost my shoe (a day without a shoe)

I decided to spend a day walking about the city. I took a train north to the next stop and was going to walk back to my apartment, so it would be like 2-3 hours. While I was on the train, I had my feet stretched out along the seats. There was this kid across from me, probably around 18-19, who occasionally glanced at me. Then out of nowhere, he grabs my right shoe and starts trying to pull it off. He pulled so hard to the point I fell out my seat. He took my right shoe and ran off just as the train stopped. Luckily this was my stop too, so I got off the train, but the kid was nowhere to be seen. So I started the long walk back in one shoe and my white sock.

Along the way, I decided to stop into a game store to pick up a game. I paid for it and as I was about to leave, the cashier stopped me and yelled out “People normally wear two shoes, not one. Wheres your shoe at”? I told him someone stole it, to which he said, “Well you look stupid”. He started laughing at me as I walked out.

I had to cross the parking lot of a supermarket, and then another neighborhood before I got home. I figured cutting through the parking deck would reduce my chance of people seeing me, so I hopped towards the elevator to go to the lower deck. I thought I was gonna be the only one until a guy rushed into the elevator at the last second. As we were riding down, he looked down and saw my shoeless foot. He pointed and laughed and said, “Hahahaha you only have one shoe.” As the door opened, I started to hop out when he said, “And youre hopping too? You look like a bum,” as I slipped and fell as he was passing by. Had to continue the rest of the way home alternating between walking and hopping.
