Of course! What do you think l am, american?
Of course! it's rude if they don't take off their shoes.
Apparently the Japanese do that all the time as a normal custom. It helps to keep the dirt out of their homes.
However, I have only been asked to take my shoes off twice in an American home. Once, it was for religious reasons....and my feet froze the whole time I was there, as they had no carpets. The second time I was offended. I was viewing a potential living situation. A workman was present. HE had not been forced to remove HIS shoes, and his were far dirtier than mine. If you have a rule like that, it must be for everyone...or no one.
No, but a lot of them do anyway
Yes. I have always gone barefoot in my home. It's civilized!
No, they seem to know its respectful thing to do. Kids don't always take their shoes off but I don't mind. However, once we had a one off guest (didn't know the rules) walk straight in and he left a mark on the floor which is still there.
Of course not...But they make me take my shoes off to thoroughly "rob" me....
yes do not want to chance dog **** getting tracked on it
No, I clean often enough that a little dirt doesn't bother me. It's not like I need the floors to stay clean until I clean them next month.
No, only their fake smiles or moody attitudes. They can leave them outside or sodoff.
All the time, no shoes in the house. Same applies when I visit friends I take my shoes off even if they it's okay.
Not unless they're covered in snow or mud or whatever.
Of course not. I'm just not so rich and I never worry over a carpet versus the comfort of my guests.
yup, full of cow manure or horse manure...
No, unless they have stepped in dog poop on the way in...lol
no,a house is for living in.
