Odd Logic

Some people say that if you ask guests to take their shoes off you are implying that your floor is more important than your guests.

By the same logic, if a gym asks you to wear white-soled tennis shoes in their squash court that means that the gym values its floor more than its customers (and the fees they pay!).

Absolutely, and if you ask guests not to smoke, does that mean that you value your air more then them?

What people who say this are actually implying is that there is something rude about asking people to do things.

If you ask somebody to hold your umbrella for a minute do you regard them as a servant, not a friend?
