I Go Barefoot At Work

    Perks

    I am the owner of a small business in southern Texas. When the weather cooperates, which is pretty much the whole year, I don't bother putting on shoes for work. Just one of the many advantages of being the boss.

    All In A Days Work

    I work in an office, so I can get away with it. We technically have a dress code, so I only show up in jeans every other week on our Casual Day. But I walk around the office barefoot all day long and nobody gives a ****. Every once in a while, my boss or one of my co-workers...

    I work at my mom's ice-cream parlor

    and I'm always barefoot behind the counter. I keep a pair of flip-flops with me for when I have to go out into the seating area. The floor is tiled, and it it feels great under bare feet.

    Colleagues Get Used To See Me Going At Work Barefoot

    I feel sorry for people who have to wear dark suits and ties at work. Unfortunately, this is common in banks, law firms, government agencies and offices. I also work in an office, but it's part of an archive and less frequented by visitors. So my colleagues and I are in the happy...

    This summer I'm doing an internship in finance

    at a tech startup. The dress code is super casual so I'll be able to go barefoot in the office. I'm really excited about it because most jobs in finance are really buttoned-up, so it's rare to find one you can be barefoot in.
