OLwomen: 9 Reasons Why Your Home Should Be Shoe Free Zone

7. Your Neighbor’s Might Not Like

Your neighbor’s might not like

Sometimes your shoes get noisy much and your neighbors just do not want that tick tock of your shoes. This particularly happens when you are residing in an apartment.

-If you have wooden floors then you have to be very careful with your shoes.
-You shouldn’t be walking with them on.
-The sound of those shoes will get to irritate them.

years ago when I was single and living in an apartment the neighbor who lived above me was a woman. We met in the elevator and I invited her in for a drink. As we entered my apartment she slipped off her heels. I was a bit startled by this. Sensing this she told me that given the fact that our apartments had hardwood floors she thought it rude to wear heels and create unnecessary noise. I smiled and said I guess that is the reason I never heard you walking around.

A considerate lady.

Not all of us live in apartments so it won't necessarily be relevant.

Bob, was your neighbor a young woman? Her decision to take her shoes off in your apartment if she didn't know you well was certainly unusual.

Mark said...

Thats a very polite and well brought up lady, Bob. Generally speaking, our visitors automatically remove their shoes. People here are very laid back about it.

Paul,
I would guess that she was in her late 20's or early 30's
While it was the first time that we had met she knew where I lived and was therefore not worried about any un-gentlemen like behavior on my part.
I would venture that her removing her heels was part of her DNA and as Mark said she was polite and well reared.

Bob,

Sounds like she was a very polite young woman. Did she bring slippers with her or just walked around your apartment in her stocking feet? Did you follow her example and remove your shoes too?

Bob said...

Yes Paul she was polite. I do not now nor did I then wear shoes in my home.
The first time she came over we were both on our way home from work and she did not have slippers in her purse.
She came over a few more times but I do not recall if she wore slippers.
I trust I answered all your questions about this issue o we should close this topic
have a nice evening
Bob

Don't answer Pauls peculiar stocking fetsih questions whatsoever. Completely ignore all his manipulative posts and eventually when his cravings can't be satisfied here he will give up and go elsewhere.
