Feet are gross and for the most part, highly unattractive. Be that as it may, it doesn't mean you can just not take care of your feet. I don't care how poor you are, you absolutely CAN afford a $.97 pair of nail clippers. And if you are super poor, please recycle aluminum cans (because I know you're probably buying beer even though you're on welfare) and get yourself a nail brush which retails at Walmart for maybe another $.97.
And scrub your feet.
I cannot tell you how many people I've seen this summer who have nasty ass feet. Feet that have obviously not been scrubbed. If you have dirt under your nail or on the side? Your feet are still dirty. Just because you stood in a shower and let water and excess soap hit your feet doesn't mean you feet are clean. You actually need to bend your ass over and physically wash your feet.
Every summer it's a problem and every summer I hold back the urge to have a mini public service announcement in the middle of Walmart while standing on a case of Milwaukee's Best because it's a problem. It's an epidemic.
Now I get it- some people are lazy. They just can't be bothered. Which, to each his own, but if that's the case please for the mother loving baby jeebus, do not, under any circumstances wear sandals. Do not expose your feet. Do not trudge your hooves around and air our your fungal infection.
I can't afford pedicures very often, if I get two a year it's a good year. That doesn't mean I ignore my feet. I'm constantly using my pumice stone, trimming/filing my toenails so they are even and I keep them polished. If any toenail chips, you know I'm wearing socks until I can fix them because it's not attractive. It's absolutely disgusting to see completely unkempt feet. All of my life I have been hyper vigilant about feet because I think if you can't even keep your feet clean and looking decent- what else are you slacking on? Gross.
Oh. And before I forget- ladies? Long toenails are not cute. If your nail could be mistaken for a fingernail? TRIM THAT SHIT. If you could go rock climbing with your toenails? It's time you shorten them. If when wearing socks it looks like you shoved some daggers in there? You need to cut those bitches. And please don't file them into points. Your toenails should be a round or a square with round corners shape. There is no other acceptable shape for your toenails to be in- it looks crazy and kind of scary. Your feet shouldn't look like they belong to a troll.
So yes. I wish there was some kind of Foot Hygiene Awareness group or something. As you can tell, I have experienced some pretty effing disgusting foot encounters recently and it's driving me nuts.
