You Just Have to Ask

What To Expect Forum: OT- Taking Your Shoes Off


The OP on this parenting thread expressed annoyance that people were coming into her home with their shoes on. Somebody offered the obvious reply:

"Just kindly ask them to take their shoes off. They can't read your mind. No need to get so upset, just tell them to please take their shoes off."


A lot of people unnecessarily agonize about this subject. They need to stop getting angry and annoyed and just politely ask for shoes-off. They need less of the passive-aggression and more assertion.

I'm guessing you've already posted this article, http://www.treehugger.com/green-home/6-reasons-remove-your-shoes-inside.html It again makes a compelling argument for shoe removal.
