Get over it.
They're not exactly formal shoes.
I'd look at someone funny if they were wearing converse in my tesco.

Black shoes means SHOES. Not trainers. If you aren't working in what the company deems appropriate attire, you are liable to be sacked. If he's already warned you about wearing converses, and you still are, that's insubordination, which is also grounds for being sacked. Your boss isn't in the wrong at all. It's you trying to find a problem with him, which is easily remedied by wearing proper shoes. The company shouldn't change to accomodate you, you have to accomodate the company.

You have to wear decent shoes to work at Mcdonalds today. Seriously, do you want to wear your shoes (and they're converses, you're obviously expressing your individuallity just like everyone else), or have a job?

Wear different shoes, or lose a job and be broke. Yeah I'd choose the different shoes.

I got fired from guitar center for joking about smoking cigarettes constantly. Not joking constantly, joking about the smoking of cigarettes.

EXACTLY Why women shouldn't be put in positions of power.

but black shoes does not mean sneaker that are black. It means black shoes.

Look around where you're working, TS. Is everyone else wearing smart shoes? That's because it's the dress code

You have a job. How can you not afford shoes? Learn to manage your money better.

Quote by CliffIsAngry
I got fired for having a legitimate vacation. They just forgot to tell each other -_-


My flatmate had the same thing happen with WHSmiths. His boss phoned up while he'd gone to visit his parents' for the weekend demanding an explanation for where he was. Even though my flatmate had booked the time off and had it OK'd. Turns out his boss forgot to put it in the books and believed that even though he said it was alright the week before, if its not written in the books, flatmate has no holiday time.

People shouldn't be encouraging him to 'quit his job and get a better one' rules are there for a reason, a company like Tesco prides itself in it's employees looking smart; everyone else has to wear uniform so you should too, its a part of life, and however uncool it may be, you just have to deal with it. Quitting for a reason like not being able to wear trainers isn't unfair, its you that isn't following the company's policy.
And btw, get some real trainers, converse is teh sux.
