Is it ever acceptable to...

... walk around the office in your socks?


The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

I'll take my shoes off at my desk and if I'm walking to someone's cubicle near me, I'll go in just socks, but that's as far as I'll go.

you know, when I first saw this thread, the first thing to pop into my head was the Clerks 2 scene about whether it is ever acceptable to go ass to mouth.

I don't, but there is a guy two cubes ahead of me that does. I do not particularly care, but I got a feeling he gets a way with it because he is younger, underpaid and gay.

I'll take my shoes off at my desk sometimes, but do not go to even get some water without putting them back on.

People walk around here in socks and barefoot all the time, gross! Even worse are people who walk around the city streets barefoot.

People take these things too seriously!
