One time my girlfriend made fun of me for wearing Velcro shoes, so I tied her shoes together when she had her feet on my lap. Then I told her, "Now, try that on me!" Ownt. True story, but in all seriousness, making fun of someone who wears Velcro shoes is like making fun of someone who takes advantage of using the convenience of a microwave over an oven. Also, sometimes I have to wear laced steel-toed boots to work, and I'm constantly having to re-tie them... so much easier just to wear Velcro.
