This may seem a bit of an odd one but I'm just sharing my sense of impending doom / annoyance / stupidity of the world* (*delete as you find appropriate).
I work for the NHS as a 'frontline worker' and I have a uniform policy to adhere to by wearing the uniform provided, which for anyone interested is unflattering and not very comfortable.
Anyway, my point is that apparently also in said uniform policy we are told to wear plain black socks.
Now I'm not trying to be funny, but can't I have that tiny piece of freedom to choose what socks to wear?!
I wear fully enclosed shoes and my trousers are plenty long enough so it isn't even as if I'm some kind of sock exhibitionist!
Plus whenever I have bought plain black socks, they seem to be consumed by the sock devil that seemingly lives with me.
I love my sock collection, they allow me some amount of freedom in work so I am declaring a sock revolution! Funky socks unite!
