NOT ON MY BED!

I have never actually witnessed it - someone walking in from outdoors , and without removing their shoes they throw themselves on a sofa - feet, shoes and all. And in extreme cases - they would do the same on a bed!. I have seen it in movies - never in real life and maybe I am a bit too fussy, but I would never allow that in my home. What do you think? Is it okay to put one's shoe clad feet on a bed or sofa? What would be one of the things that you most definitely would not allow on your bed?

That's bringing germs from outside onto the bed where you sleep.

No won't be happening in my home either. People are expected to take their shows off when they come in the door. That is how I was raised and I do the same when I go visit anybody else.

I wrote once about a distant relative visiting my home for the first time. He walked in with his heavy boots and sat on the sofa placing his boot clad feet on my white shaggy rug!

I have never allowed that in my bed, not even when they are small children. And I don´t allow pets in my bed (nor inside my house).

NO! It's not okay for me, the first thing I do when I step inside is to remove my shoes and put on my home slippers. I would never accept that someone put his feet on my sofa or my bed.

Yes, I have home slippers which I get into as soon as I arrive home.

I do the same! I immediately take off my shoes. Only problem is that nobody who visits takes their shoes off in my house! With the sometimes exception of my nephew! Luckily I have had hard wood floors and the cleaners vacuum the floors and mop them all! I love a freshly washed floor!

@Kandae11 The shoes you use outside are not clean, there are plenty of germs outside.

Sometimes when teenagers are all alone in the alone they usually do that. But for those already middle aged they don't usually do that anymore.

Let's face it, some teenagers do not think responsibly - but mature adults do it as well. Another thing I dislike seeing is someone taking a carton of milk or juice from the refrigerator and drinking from that carton - which is for everyone else -- just get a glass.

I have never had such a visitor and if I ever did, unless they were sick, I would tell them to leave and never come back.

Children will do that - unless they are sternly reprimanded - and even then, they could do it when no one is around.

That was my first thought - what could be embedded in the crevices of the soles of shoes.

I think that dirty shoes especially on ones bed is the worst thing that could happen. Especially with dirt and bacteria and all.

Heck no!! shoes on the sofa or bed is a big no-no in my house. Most people take their shoes off at the door so generally I don't have that problem

That is the way it should be - left at the door if possible.

A shoe definitely. Here many houses have a rack outside on the verandah to put their shoes before getting into the house.

I personally remove my shoes at the door. I hate the idea of bringing everything you've walked on all day into your home. It is disgusting.
