Yesterday at work (I work in a school), I walked into the ladies' restroom in the office because, well, because I needed to go.  Duh!  When I opened the door, there was one of our substitute teachers, an older (age 65 or 70)  woman of Indian or Middle Eastern descent washing her foot in the sink.  She was wearing rubber Crocs with the back bent in so they were almost like slides. One of them was sitting on the floor since her foot was in the sink.

Anyway, I just thought it was bizarre!  Would you wash your foot in the sink of a public bathroom in front of other people?  She tried to explain to me what she was doing and why, but I couldn't get out of there fast enough.  No, I didn't go to the bathroom or use that sink again.  I couldn't get the image out of my head.  Luckily, we have several teacher bathrooms.

Then, I see on our great WWW that putting your foot in the sink and taking a selfie is actually a thing.  WHAT?  WHY?

Then, I see on our great WWW that Muslims wash their feet before prayer.  Maybe that was the real reason instead of the fake "My toe was bleeding" excuse she gave me.

Am I being dramatic, or is that really unacceptable to wash your feet in the sink at your workplace?  Is it a cultural thing?  I don't know.  It just gave me the heebeejeebees.

That is all.
