    Barefoot At Work

    I'm a Paramedic and work in a Fire Station. After 1800 (6 pm) we're allowed to change out of our Class B uniforms and wear t-shirts and shorts. Most of the guys wear sneakers and sock or flip-flops but I go barefoot. One night, I was asleep in my room when a firefighter woke me...

    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.

    It was a long day at work,

    and I needed to send a long e-mail before heading home. I was tired, I needed to relax, so as a way to relax while I typed this e-mail, I took my shoes and socks off! Ooooh, it felt good to let my bare feet relax and let my toes wiggle in relaxation! It felt so good, free, and...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    My job is working at sea on the bridge of a
