Day 2 of 30: Shoes

I saw these shoes on my way to the gym this morning. My best guess at the scenario...
A frustrated and exhausted mother shouting to her teenage son: “For the millionth time, PICK UP YOUR SHOES or I'll throw'em out the window!” Said teenage son, with eyes still glued to the TV, pretends not to hear her. Mother annoyed by his arrogance follows through with the promise. She obviously was not aware of her own strength!

In some neighborhoods that marks gang territory! Hopefully that's not the case here.

Seriously Jenni? It could very well be the case. It was in the ghetto part of town that I took the picture.

Hopefully they aren't out to get me for flipping around, pulling off to the side of the road and taking a picture!

it actually signals drug activity, usually associated with gangs. different kinds of mean different things. it lets you know what to buy and who your buying from.

I don't care how hard up for drugs you may be, a good pair of shoes are expensive and hard to find! You won't see me throwing shoes away like that unless they are Ben's old stinky tennis shoes!!! From the picture the shoes look to be in good shape. Maybe you could give them to your hubby for Easter!j/k I really think this is hilarious and I am glad you took the time to share!!!!

I always thought that shoes on a powerline signified the loss of virginity. Kind of a hootin' hollerin' WAHOOOOO!!!!!! I went to the source of all light and knowledge and found that it can mean a lot of things, including gang activity and loss of virginity among other things:

yep, The word on the street is that it means that there is a dealer in the area. Or if you watch "Big Fish" it means something else but I can't remember what.
