My dogs are barking!

    No, not the real doggies, my feet!

    Seriously, if anyone knows any tricks to help ease the pain when I get home I'd be appreciative. I'm not used to being on my feet all day and damn they hurt after a shift at the City.

    Any and all advice would be appreciated!

    You don't remember the whole toe amputation thread a while back?

    I seem to remember radio executive Arthur Carlson having some foot powder one day ...

    Jeebus, that was when i didn't have internet access. Holy fuck the shit I missed on here. That was hilarity to the extreme.

    But seriously, the dogs they are a still barking. I would think soaking them might do good, but I dunno. Maybe someone has a better remedy?

    Bucket or bath of warm water and a cup of Epsom salt.

    I've heard that works. Just getting other options as well.

    This helps me:
    1) Kick the shoes off.
    2) Take your socks off, but just for a minute or two. Give 'em some air.
    3) Rub your feet for minute with the socks off.
    4) Put the socks back on (or don't; either way works) and find a nice, soft carpet. Wiggle your toes around on the carpet.
    5) Wash your hands. You've just touched nasty feet.

    Usually helps me a little, anyway. The big thing is just to stay off them for an hour or two.

    Well, the shoes are off at the office but I'm not going as far as doing the socks thing, although I've seen people do that and I get/got disgusted at seeing that they had the temerity to walk barefoot on carpet that hasn't seen a vaccum cleaner since Hoover was in diapers.
