Yes, that's right. I used to live in Singapore, and everybody there wears flipflops. And generally when you go there, people shuffle along without picking up their feet, so you fall over.
I'm sorry to have made a sweeping statement; you're right, it was rude and I shouldn't have. So I can only apologise for my impolite words. I'm sorry.
I used to live in Singapore too
...and I'm sure nobody was really offended *hugs* Perhaps I shouldn't have said anything about it
