Things That Are Bothering You, Got You All Hibbeldy-Jibbeldy, or just downright pissed, RIGHT NOW! - Page 4794

When I feel upset about shoe delivery mishaps and captoes and such like I just turn to my faith tradition (Dutch Calvanous) and serenity returns into my mindspace straightaway.

I'm doing some breathing exercises because I can feel the blood pressure rising... I've been sitting around waiting to do errands for 4 hours now.  They are 45 min past their "window"

 

*breathe*

You're talking to linc, so I think you mean staff infections.

I had that happened with the FIOS guy a couple weeks ago. They showed up four hours late. I could have gotten away with an extended lunch break, but missing a whole afternoon means I gotta take leave. What stupid bullshit. And you know they'd leave in five minutes if you weren't there when they show up.

Finally sitting in my new pair of Loakes.  I like them.  $150 less than the Allen Edmonds and none of the bs.  Hard to believe these traveled 3900 miles and the stupid Allen Edmonds factory is like 30 miles away.

 

I feel (and look) much better

Pics or GTFO.

the real question is is it more cost efficient over the long term over allen edmonds or kohl's brand corrected grain leather shoes

good thing somebody's already calculated it for you. just have to change the model to fit loakes

*sigh* 

I feel a little better

You are doing it wrong. You aren't supposed to get a second pair of AEs, you are supposed to get a pair of AE seconds.

Big fucking difference.

I am wearing John Lobb of shoes today. They weren't delivered to my home, though, because I bought them in person at Neiman Marcus of Houston, Texas. I think that's why I got a good blood pressure to me today.

Should always get two pairs of AE so you can strip the second pair for parts once the need arises
post #71908 of 87013
I'm so baller that I use a second pair of AE seconds as shoe trees for my AE seconds.

I woke up multiple times during the night last night on account of I was having stupid dreams. I am probably going to have a day of tiredness ahead of me. (There was this guy who was insisting that every family was assigned a proper English surname when they came to America and who tried to hector me into telling him my true English name. I didn't know my true English surname, so I guessed Schmidt, since there are lots of Schmidts in my family. Then there was a long debate about whether Schmidt was English enough. Now that I am awake, I can't help but wonder why I submitted Schmidt as a possibility.)

So for the first timein years I wen to the MC WAYWRN threak... oh my god. So much bad. So much iGent cliche bs. So much circlejerk. So much affected ridiculousness. So much deference to "the rules" (which were made up and then ignored when "the rules" don't comport with what the idiots thought "the rules" were).

I do believe there IS a reason it is just a soft, easygoing place now.
