Mother Distracted: Do you take your shoes off indoors?

Mother Distracted: Do you take your shoes off indoors?

So since I'm the one who does most of the vacuuming and endlessly chases crumbs and fluff with my trusty dustpan and brush, I don't feel remotely guilty for asking people to take their shoes off.

If you come visiting, best make sure there are no holes in your socks.

Not very hospitable at all.

Of course she is entirely correct.I consider it to be good manners to always ask if you should remove your shoes as soon as you arrive.

Paul, i am going to preempt your predictable comment with this. You are absolutely free to do as you will in your own house, as are others in their homes. I am curious Paul, from your comments, you are clearly distressed by removing your shoes and never miss a chance to share your fears. Therefore one must ask why you would continually visit a website that is dedicated to the very thing that terrifies you? i know that you will say that you aren't terrified but exercising your freedom. But when others exercise their freedom you object to it.
So Paul why do you feel the need to visit a website that is diametrically opposed to what you practice and believe. The very subject of shoe removal seems to inordinately distress you
Sadly, I guarantee to know what your answer will be.

Mark - I noticed that more households now ask their guests to take their shoes off without having a cultural or religious reason for it. It kind of bothers me because I think more people here don't care for being proper, and it is important to always be proper. Nevertheless, this trend that I don't like does exist - this is why I am on this blog. Does my answer satisfy you?
