Tevas are very 1990
"I was once dumped by a woman because she didn't like the fact that I wore Tevas one day. This was my girlfriend that I was with for six months, too. It lasted for about two days after that. We’d be out, and having fun, and then she’d snap out of the blue and be like 'I can’t believe you wore those shoes yesterday.'
"Finally, when we were on a double date, I made an off-handed joke about them, and she asked if I had thrown them out yet. When I said no, she got up and told me to take her home, and we broke up that night. The best part, though, is that we went to the coast with a couple friends the day after… each of us had good friends from out of town who we wanted to see, so we both stubbornly went anyway. I wore those Tevas the whole time, even when I slept." -- anonymous Thrillist staffer
Watching the breakup would've been a good halftime show
"I dumped a girl because she was really condescending about football. She threw a dinner party on the same night as the Super Bowl. I showed up thinking it was going to be a Super Bowl party, but it turned out she had no interest in the game and was really adamant about not showing it.
