Shoeless Sue

Last night I was waiting in line for the bus at Oshawa GO Station when I did a double-take when I looked at a woman who was missing a shoe.

Was she holding it? I thought. I did a lean to the side motion to sneak a peek. I didn't see a shoe in her hand.

We boarded the bus. She sat one row away from me. My curiosity was off the charts. What the hell happened? It has to be one hell of a story, I thought.

So I asked her. Turns out she lost her flat when she was running for the 5:10 pm train and it flew off just as she hopped on and the doors closed beside her.

"Oh, crap," I said. "That sucks." And I went back to my phone.

"Are you tweeting me," she asked jokingly. I said, "Yes". Her face changed.



I would expect nothing less of you mofos if you saw me hobbling along like an orphan. At least I didn't take a picture.

That is too funny, I was the one who responded to your tweet too!
What did she expect?
