Heels on a Plane

Now that I'm back from vacation, rested, and well into work again, I have a complaint.

While waiting for planes at different terminals in 3 different airports, I watch people. It's fun, humorous, and allows me to write about something when I get a chance.

When I travel, whether for business or pleasure, I like to be comfortable, but I also want to get through security as quickly as possible. So for my vacation, I took a cue from my friend Chris Wendel. He travels in Crocs. They are easy to wear, easy to take off, and are very comfortable. They are also light weight. Airport security is much easier with these shoes on.

So why, in the name of Orville and Wilbur, do women insist upon wearing the following:

High Heels
High Heeled Boots

What the HELL are they thinking? How on earth is that comfortable, or easy on security?

And how do I know you're heels won't cause a puncture in the hull and cause decompression?

If the plane does fall apart, I would rather die being hit by a piece of the plane, rather than your stinking shoe, embedded in my forehead.

I would rather be burned by flaming jet fuel than having a 4 inch heel through my eyeball.

I have nothing against heels. They suit the outfits they accompany. But please, not on an airplane, please!
