    I suppose the thing which irritates me the most about people who don't want shoes worn in their house, is when I don't know about the rule before hand.

    If you tell me before inviting me over, then I can either choose not to come over out of respect for your rule, or I can change my socks and put on my slip-on shoes.

    Waiting until I'm standing in your front doorway to tell me I have to take my boots off and stink up the place is just rude.

    I would understand if someone wants to keep the crap on my shoes off their carpet.
    Maybe you could put plastic bags over your shoes but maybe it would be better to wash your feet and change your socks.

    Around here it would be considered rude not to offer to remove your shoes when entering someones home, especially on a wet / snowy day. On a nice dry day I make no such requests of people but in the middle of the winter I'll be damned if you're going to drag all that crap across my 75 yr old oak floors.

    As a general rule, yes! There are always exceptions. But the alternative to those exceptions is to put down plastic.

    I can't even believe that people *have* to be asked to remove their dirty shoes before tracking crap all over someone's floors. That is the height of rudeness, IMO - to knowingly, willingly track dirt all over your host's floors. ****ing. Rude. And insulting. How little respect someone must have for me and my home to want to dirty it in such a manner.

    True. It is not just an East thing. Have had something like 30 Canadien boys live with us while playing hockey over the years and everyone removes his shoes without question. They may be a slob everywhere else in the house but they always remove their shoes.

    Hell, I'd ask someone to remove their feet upon entering my house.

    By any chance did you ever hang out with Jeffrey Dahmer?
