    At Home

    Inside the kids room, I found a pair of socks lying on the floor and I would instinctively pick it up with my toes. That won't escape my kid's eyes and he'll shrug and would look at me and smile. Often my husband would try it, but finds it as something ridiculous, he would just...

    I'm lazy. This morning, I was unloading the dishwasher. After getting all the plates, bowls, and cups, I was tired of bending over and there were probably about 40 pieces of silverware left. So I used my toes to pick up each and every one of them and "hand" it to my hand to...

    Glad I Found This Group.

    Lol. :-P I thought I was the only one. :-P I pick lots of things up with my feet, and I sometimes even turn light-switches off with my toes, by sort of doing a light kick. =P

    Pick things up??? I can write using my feet!! I'm just special like that. People think it's weird, but, I don't see how, it's like an extra hand. Useful if you're in need of doing two things at the same time. TopTip: Wash feet afterwards, you get pen ink on you

    I have always tended to pick things up with my

    toes! Don't know why... Easier than bending down to get something?? Hahaha But now being a Nanny, my skills have come in handy, because if I'm holding the baby and she drops a toy or something, I Just pick it up with my toes!

    My Own "Talented Toes" Story

    Hey all, Just came to the board...I'm a writer and saw this topic.  I'm fairly talented with my toes. I can pick up my Blackberry (a Blackberry curve) with my toes if it's too far away to get with my hands. I've also used my toes to grab my purse strap...

    I'v been able to pick things up with my feet for as long as i remember, when people drop things in my house i wait for them to bend down before swiping it with my feet which always makes people laugh :D just one of those little things i'v always been proud of

    Lifelong Toe User

    Ever since I can remember, I've preferred piking things up with my toes. Rather than using hands. Pens, bottles, golfballs, and the occasional tennis ball. I used to be able to write pretty well, not so good at tying shoelaces with toes. Wish I had more time to practice and an...

    I pick thing up with my toes.

    .. I can also pinch really hard with my toes!! (I've left bruises on people). I recently impressed a friend by opening a round doorknob using only one foot and my toes.... You can say I have strange talents ;)

    Getting Good At This...

    For quite a while now I have picked up random things with my toes. It sure saves straining your back ;) The latest skill enhancement of this stereotyped "lazy way of doing things" is playing with my dog. I pick up her squeeky toys with my feet & fling them as far as I can for her...

    Talent With My Tootsies

    This weekend I was on my way to Palm Beach and the weather was crappy and traffic was backed up for miles. As usual, I was driving barefoot and while waiting, I crossed my leg to where my foot was touching the radio. I just discovered that I can turn the volume up and down with...

    They're My "Monkey Toes"

    My family makes fun of me whenever I go to pick something up with my toes. They say I'm like a monkey. I love it though. It's very convienent, especially since I'm lazy. Over the years, I've gotten pretty good at what I can pick up. Cups, pens, pieces of paper, I usually try to...

    Special Ninja Skills.

    Some think it's disgusting, but I don't care. Why bend down when it's right beside your tootsies. I'm perfectly able to lift my leg up and grip with my toes. If you've got it, use it.

    Initiate Toe-pinching Procedure Sr2178alpha!

    For as long as I can remember, me and my mom would have toe fights where we could pinch welts into each other's legs. It would usually take place during the major networks (growing up all we had was an antenna) late-night movies. Now it freaks out girlfriends and such when I...

    I Am Really Good At It

    And it's very handy. I picked up my razor just now when I dropped it in the shower, saving me from having to re-apply the shaving cream that would have gotten rinsed off had I reached for it with my hands. I think I'd like having a prehensile tail, too, although I wouldn't...

    I have always been able to pick things up with my toes, and I can open doors with them if I absolutely must. The really fun bit is that I can actually pinch very hard with them as well. Once, I was helping to demonstrate how to get out of a particular hold during a self defense...

    It Spares the Back...

    I pick up things with my toes. I have found that it is much easier on the back than bending over for every little thing. I use my toes to pick up almost everything. Now this habit bugs my husband. He thinks it is gross and unnatural to use ones toes like fingers. I...

    I'm Too Damn Lazy To Bend Over

    I'm always barefoot. If something's on the floor that I can lift with just my foot, I'll grab it with my toes and raise it to my hand. I almost always do this instead of bending over. I've even done it in public. To close friends and family members, I will even "hand" them...

    I Cant

    I personally never use my toes to pick things up. My toes dont bend they are like sticks. My wife used to use her toes, she was very skilled and had nice feet. Those were the days, when I was married ... I am a huge fan of girls using their toes to pick things up and...

    I Am So Lazy!

    I can pick up alot of things with my toes. If I am cleaning my house like picking clothes up, I pick them up with my toes and throw them in the air for me to catch. I got to say, I'm very talented with that =oP. It does help with my back 'cause it seems to be sensitive probably...

    There's A Reason

    I've picked up things with my toes since I was a very young child.  (I also go barefoot in the house most of the time.)  Drop a pencil?  Pick it up with toes, lift foot, pass it to hand.  It's very easy for me.  Coins are a little difficult, but clothes...
