Mandalorian Etiquette



One of the great things about Star Wars is that there is information about every single detail and corner of the Star Wars galaxy.

The Mandalorians are a race of nomadic warriors, the most famous of which was Boba Fett, who appeared in the movies Attack of the Clones, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

According to an article in the Star Wars online encyclopedia, Wookieepedia, removing boots when entering homes is a vital part of Mandalorian etiquette.

I know other people have posted similar things and it may be of no interest, but I was in my local libary this moning.

The young branch libarian, who I have only seen wearing formal shoes before was samtly dressed in blouse, skirt and tights but was wearing black slippers.

It would appear to be quite common among librarians.

A bit unproffesional!!

I suppose some people might think so.

Hi,

I have posted on here a few times before.

You may remeber that I work in a libary and have been doing the same thing for the best part of 2 years. No one has ever objected or complained at all.

In fact as well as being nicer and more comfy than wearing shoes slippers are also much quiter in the study areas than heels.

Why would anyone mind?

Hi Becky, you're absolutely right. I could add another reason: a librarian whose feet are not tired from shoes on all day long works with more energy. Hence, wearing slippers (while even comfy shoes may tire after a few hours) is actually more professional than wearing shoes!

Hi Sandro,


Thanks for being so understanding.

I think a few people have commented on here that they do the same thing and it seems sensible.

Obviuosly some slippers aere'nt suitable, but a samrt pair is fine.

Becky.

You are welcome, Becky. The more librarians and readers have as much sense as you do, the better!

Becky, what do you think on removing shoes in people's homes for reasons of comfort, respect and cleanness?

Hi Sandro,

Yes I always remove mine at other peoples homes and obviusly my own.

Partly for respect and cleanness, but yes also I am more comfortable with shoes off.

I think I have mentioned this before, but as well as changing into slippers in work, I also carry a pair with me to change into if I need to. So for example at school meetings ( I am a govenore at my chldren's school) I change into slippers as I prefer it.

I may also have mentioed before that I have a colleague (Rachel) who also changes into slippers in work.

Becky.

That's very reasonable, Becky. I also keep a pair of slippers at work; though we have tiles on floor at our office, easy to clean, the area is muddy, and I remove my shoes as soon as I enter; otherwise, the cleaning lady will have to mop all the day long. Regarding shoes off at homes, it's by default in the most of my country, Georgia, and I don't have to ask my guests for it. Do you ask yours to de-shoe, or do they do without being asked? Thank you

One of my favorite quotes by Ryan Gosling.
"We are going to be fine. We have to do it, it's the right thing to do and nothing bad happens when you are doing the right thing."
There are exceptions, to every rule.

I wonder if you actually read the post before putting in that comment.
