No, I didn't get confused. It occurs to me that engineers should consider the health impacts of industrial flooring. They certainly consider use, which is why Wal-Mart doesn't have shag and bamboo isn't in warehouses.

But what's good for carts and forklifts isn't good for human feet, legs and backs. There should be a way to use carts without keeping the podiatrist in the black.

Shoes. Check into them. I know you live in Alabama, but I think they sell them even down there.

The store where I work has concrete floors, but at the registers we have anti-fatigue mats. We sell the same mats and they are our number one seller.

I wear the best shoes I can afford and $400.00 orthotics in them. I have numbness in my toes from pinching the nerves, at least I hope that is all it is.

We have those mats, too, Quanta. But we often stand away from the mat at the end of the registers.

Ask for either a longer mat, or a second one.

The only really good thing for feet is to go bare food on the beach.

We reopened last Saturday. About a third of the building is still under repair so there's a wall separating the sides (dry wall and everything...). They are still messing around with the shelves trying to get as much as possible on the floor. We went from 20 registers to 13. It looks somewhat like an old Walmart - only more chaotic.

The employees are guessing half the time as to where stuff is. :shrug:

Why? I prefer all sandwiches sans sand.

Same with BBB sandwiches.

They're like a BLT except you replace the lettuce with bacon and the tomato with more bacon. And, if you want, you can skip the bread as well and just make it a platter of bacon.

You were the one who wanted bare food on the beach.

Foot problems are awful, just ask me about the surgery for them. I have another one due next year

No, thanks. Had knee surgery and once was enough!

So one arrow to the knee was enough to end your adventuring career?

No, two benign tumors. I presume their predecessors broke into the five bodies that were removed from the knee in 2005.
