Socks first, then shoes, left to right.

I don't care if Archie Bunker thinks I'm insane, I'm not hopping around on one shoe clad foot to escape a fire.

I wonder if it's genetic how we choose to clad our feet?

Is it learned from watching those around you?

Does it depend if you are right or left handed?

So many deciding factors :)

Its a bit like drying yourself after a wash...everyone is different to a certain extent, but as you get older, the routine probably remains constant.

do you think they do it differently in Australia?

Jock....Weird things spark into the brain in the wee sleepless hours....this was one of them I acted on. It was the safest option :D

But aren't we all glad I did? Now people are thinking about it when the feet cladding time of the day comes along....:crazy:

Gunnar - we just bung our feet into a couple of Kangaroo's pouches and hop along into work :bounce: ....so I was wondering what the rest of the world does :p


Yeti, your thread is much more complex than mine. I just talk about feet :D

Yeti: Same here, and with most of my shoes I just go sockless anyhow. But when the time is nigh to be donning multiple layers of footwear, its left, left, right, right for me.

And it was actually Mike (Rob Reiner) who suggested hopping on one foot so it stays dry. I am totally down with that logic.

Is this a Tasmanian question?

Actually, the first one on is the closest. Another thing is i dislike open shoes to point of almost being phobic.

Must be 17 odd years of being in kitchens.

Left shoe - left sock - right shoe - right sock. That way I don't have to worry about tripping on my laces. Little tough on socks though...

Lol Willie....I was waiting for someone to say that. It polishes your shoes at the same time that way :p

Nick.Shu.....guess it is a Tassie question. One head was asleep and the other was free to think of very intelligent questions

P.S. This will not make sense to many of our overseas friends... It is said (by Mainlanders...(the ones on the big island) that Tasmanians (the ones on the smalll island) are so inbred that they've mutated into growing 2 heads each. Glad we cleared that up ;)
