Mrs. Ferrier and the Shoes of Sin

  1. Bonnie says:

    That has got to be the weirdest “appointment” I have ever heard of!
    Please do tell, if even just a quick summary, how you got lured into that one lol. 

  2. Sweet goodness people are so stupid.

  3. Guest says:

    Glad to see you’re back! I missed your awesome blogs over the summer. Funny story with your usual, wonderful snark (:

  4. As I grow older I have less tolerance for public displays of stupidity like that knuckleheaded salesman showed. You did a great job putting him in his place (which he more than deserved). I think you found your calling a lot more accurately than he did his!

       I’m sort of glad the pastor was there, because I think I would have embarrassed myself if he hadn’t been around. I was FURIOUS.

  5. Tara J says:

    I would love to know if the Pastor has used this as a sermon illustration recently! LOL People are just CRAZY. 

  6. I was dying reading this. That did not happen! Well, it did, but oh my gosh! Hilarious!

    • suburbanturmoil says:

       Not only did it happen, I was told later that I was not his only victim! Apparently, he’s on a mission to shame every woman in stilettos that he encounters!

  9. Brenda W. says:

    As far as I’m concerned, those awesome shoes are worth any metatarsal problems they may bring. 🙂

  10. Katherine says:

    Wouldn’t it have been great if the author was the on who wrote the 50 Shades books? He would have really had a meltdown then! BTW – GREAT shoes!

  11. Miss B says:

    Thank heavens you had self-control. My mouth might have gotten me into a heap of trouble. I may have taught him the new and improved Matthew 7 parable about the sawdust another man’s eye. You know, the one about how he should quit worrying about the shoes of others and get to the emergency room to have my stiletto removed from his own eye!

  12. Melissa says:

    I admire your presence of mind. 🙂 I probably would have just stared at him blankly with my mind screaming “Do not engage! Do not engage!” and dwelling on the fact that one of my most comfortable pairs of shoes are a pair of 4-inch high wedges. And I do have foot problems and wear orthopedic insoles a lot of the time. So there, oh foot prophet! 

    And those shoes? Are hot. I wish I could reach inside the computer screen and pluck them out and wear them. 

  13. Kimberly says:

    My first reply to the shoe dude would be “I’m not your honey, and I know my husband would not like you calling me ‘honey’.” My second reply would be, “It’s disrespectful to your wife to be going around calling other women “honey”.
