Why do people wear flip-flops on the subway?

Why do people wear flip-flops on the subway?


Dear Daisy
It has been found that the sonic qualities of the subterranean architectural structure magnifies the schloopf schloopf sound that flip-flops produce when dragged along the subway floor.
Some people find this soothing, almost meditative.
Others, like you or I, find it contemptible and disturbing.
You’re not on a beach god damn it. You’re in the city.

Put on a pair of proper shoes, and get a haircut when you’re at it, freak.
