Representative Mary Gay Scanlon (D-PA) had one of those days when you’re so busy you don’t even realize you’ve gone the entire time with two different shoes on your feet.
Scanlon posted pictures of her fashion flub to social media, saying it’s a sign of “the pace of things” in Washington, D.C.
People ask me all the time about the pace of things in DC. It’s 4:04PM and I just noticed that I have gone an entire day with two different shoes on. pic.twitter.com/a5SciTpNJr

We’ve all been there, though. Other social media users stood in solidarity with the Congresswoman.
My sole sister!!!! 🤣Congresswoman, I learned the hard way that buying same shoe in different colors is not more efficient, it just leads to days like this, when you are too exhausted and it's dark when you get dressed in the AM

I have done the exact same thing…unfortunately, you don’t have 30 fifth graders pointing it out to you all day. pic.twitter.com/5WRyatYGtW

Others shared photos of their own. It turns out this is pretty common, so we’re pretty sure Scanlon, who appeared good-humored about the whole affair to begin with, enjoyed a hearty laugh over this.
A couple years back, it was around 2 in the afternoon when I looked down and wondered why my shoelaces were different colors. Took me a few seconds to figure it out.n🤣 pic.twitter.com/96ZgMK61th

This happens to us all and Scanlon is in good company.
