    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...

    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.
