yeah, yeah, but i'll bet they weren't jimmy choos.

As Gandhi stepped aboard a train one day, one of his shoes slipped off and landed onto the track, under the train. He was unable to retrieve it as it was departure time and the train was already starting to move. To the amazement of his companions, Gandhi calmly took off his remaining shoe and threw it back along the track to land close to the other one. When asked by one of his fellow passengers why he did so, Gandhi said, "It's very simple. I didn't want to waste a good pair of shoes." "But sir," one said, "you just threw your remaining shoe away?" "Yes," replied Gandhi, "this way, the person who finds the shoe on the track will have a pair he can use."
