    I keep my floors clean and nice - regardless of company wearing shoes indoors occasionaly. Maintaining a clean home can be a family effort and doesn't take much time to do. A broom and a deep cleaner - it's simple.

    I've, also, never had much of a mess to clean up when company comes over - We have a sidewalk to the door from the driveway and two mud-mats on the porch that people can use which is more helpful, I think, without invading comfort and privacy for the sake of me not picking up a broom.

    I insist the kids go without shoes - they have slippers that they wear in the house, we all do. But I'd never ask the same from company.

    Seriously?

    I hope no one lets you into their home.

    Who, me?

    Why would i want to go to someone else's home when they're just going to make me uncomfortable?

    Like I said in my previous post - I do not go and visit people who have such rules because I don't like it. I'm not missing much, though, because there aren't many people I'll ever visit, anyways, who care that much.

    I keep my house clean *FOR* my company to come, visit, and be comfortable - I clean it before they come and I clean it after they come, as well.

    My floors aren't that big of a deal - cleaning isn't a big deal - sweep sweep, vacuum vacuum. tada - as if nothing ever happened.

    Maybe when I'm old and stingy and my kids are all out of the house I'll think differently but so far the messes I've had to haggle and break my back to clean up are things caused by my own children: permanent marker on the floor, mud, vomit, poo, all those wonderful children things.

    Yet I still keep my home very clean - gee, however do I manage with all these people coming in an out with their boots on

    Obviously it's just not that big of a deal for me - if company makes a mess I enjoy their presence enough to clean it up without putting them out.

    If Miss Manners doesn't approve of asking guests to remove their shoes then that really settles it for me.

    Being rude means making people feel uncomfortable. The fact that it is your house and your rules does not change that.

    You must have quoted someone else when you made it, then. If you were quoting someone else, yeah, I probably skipped right over your post.

    What bull****. Numerous people have mentioned not wanting crap tracked into their houses. *I* made the same argument and your response was snotty, assholish insults.

    Hypocrite. Liar.
