Daily Mail: Do YOU ask guests to take their shoes off when they arrive at your house? One mother says visitors who don't make her ‘blood boil’ – but others insist it’s ‘common’

Daily Mail: Do YOU ask guests to take their shoes off when they arrive at your house? One mother says visitors who don't make her ‘blood boil’ – but others insist it’s ‘common’

A mother who insists upon guests removing their shoes when they visit her house has sparked a furious debate online.

The woman told Mumsnet it makes her 'blood boil' when her in-laws walk through her house in their outdoor shoes - but some women said asking guests to take them off was 'common' or 'suburban'.


Mumsnet is such a warzone.

Interestingly enough, DM's publication in 2010 tops Google for the question "Is it rude to ask guests to remove their shoes".

It looks like Daily Mail has some focus on that.

I suppose it distracts from their favorite topic of immigration.

It's a conservative paper that supports the Conservative party. These lightweight papers all seem to be obsessed with immigration as it distracts from what's really happening. It's called divide and rule.
