I’ll sometimes see barefooters proclaiming that “there are no health codes prohibiting bare feet in stores or restaurants”. That’s not quite right.
There are a few, and most of them are in Massachusetts.
You all may recall the situation I reported on a month ago, in which a McDonalds employee in Newark, Ohio (my back yard) was photographed barefoot in the store. There was a big news story and the Licking County Health Department sent an inspector and considered it a health code violation.
I wondered what would happen if I tried to eat there barefoot. But it turns out that there is quite a bit more to the story.
Wouldn’t you know it? I go out of town to a place with limited internet capabilities (there’s this thing called dial-up . . .) and a barefoot incident happens right back home in central Ohio.
It’s another case of a fast food worker being photographed in their bare feet behind the counter.
When I wrote about What You Didn’t Know About the Arizona Anti-Gay Bill, I talked about how it was an attempted modification of Arizona’s existing Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), but I also talked about how the RFRAs could be used by barefooters with sincere religious motives.
But is that cheating?
During the mid-1960s into the 1970s, there were so many kids going around barefoot that of course the question of the legality of barefoot driving came up. And when we point out today that that it is legal in all 50 states, we’ll sometimes get someone saying, “Well, it may be legal now, but it used to be illegal.
And you sure could get arrested for and convicted of it.
A couple of days ago that haven of misinformed fluff, The Huffington Post, came up with another of their hard-hitting exposés. This time they tell you 11 Mistakes You’re Making In The Bathroom (And How To Fix Them).
Take a guess. Take a wild guess. What do you think one of the 11 mistakes involves?
