Rain water in the street can be contaminated by gasoline and other chemicals. Keep it out with a no-shoes rule in your home.— Matthew Clarke (@celestialhost) October 8, 2016
@celestialhost What's with no-shoes rules? I can't understand. Are your people do not take off their shoes at home? It's strange a bit....— Viktoria (@Ukropo4kA) October 8, 2016
@Ukropo4kA British are not always as sensible as Ukrainians. Some people here stomp around homes with their shoes on.— Matthew Clarke (@celestialhost) October 8, 2016
@celestialhost Oh. It's not abt British or Ukrainians, ect. It's about hygienics. And it's normal to take off the shoes at home 😉— Viktoria (@Ukropo4kA) October 8, 2016
@Ukropo4kA It ought to be normal, but some British require a bit of education. But removing your shoes here is more common than in Spain.— Matthew Clarke (@celestialhost) October 8, 2016
@celestialhost Well... In Ukraine it's normal, but I'm sure there're some people with such a problem too. Continue your mission 👍☺— Viktoria (@Ukropo4kA) October 8, 2016
This Ukrainian lady was baffled by the concept of a no-shoes rule, as from her experience, removing your shoes was what everyone does in an home. A shoes-off policy to her is presumably like having a 'no peeing on the carpet policy,' one just wouldn't do that.
