Flip Flops? Sandals? Bare feet? - fine for the beach - not for professional drivers. The key word here; professional. 


Over the last 40 years I've witnessed not only an industry in decline but a ruder and courser manner with which many so-called drivers deal with each other and the public. Allowing our profession to live up to the lowered expectations of the motoring public has pigeon holed our reputations as unkempt, unfit, loud-mouthed ogres.  


The fact that there is even a "flip-flop' debate is evidence of it.
