I get irritated when i finished cleaning the house and have a visitors and they does not notice that the floor are already clean and still they try to enter their shoes inside the house. I sometimes think that they doesn't clean their house because they are not appreciating the effort of the man kind.

I wouldn't allow any footwear in the house. It wouldn't be easier for us to mop it. Even if I go to another house, I would leave my slippers or shoes outside. It can be irritating sometimes when people don't leave their slippers outside and I just seethe inwardly.

That happens to all of us I guess. There are really times when you'll just let your visitors in without telling them to take off their shoes or sandals. It would surely turn your cleaned floor messy. Anyway, in our house now, when visitors come, I really tell them to take off their footwear and wear the house slippers that I prepared that are only intended inside the house. It works well for me.

Hello,patze! It is customary in our Indian society that we should not wear shoes inside the house because it is considered inauspicious.thanx.

I don't really mind shoes on the house unless it is overly muddy. I only bring my shoes inside the house if I am already in a hurry and I am already wearing my shoes and I forget something hehe.

where i come from it is costomary to remove your shoes before entering a home. i think they picked it up from the japanese when they were over here during the sugar rush or plantation times. even when i go to the mainland i still remove my shoes to show respect for the people that live in the home. i dont know where the idea came from but it is something that i have always done.

that is good idea of yours because the home owner couldnt say the exact words infront of you because they think that you might be embarass to others.
