Your feet belong on the floor. I clean the floor. Hence, you can keep your shoes on. In fact, I will barely ever leave my carpeted third floor without wearing shoes or flip flops. I hate walking around barefoot or just in socks. Not only is it uncomfortable, it can be dangerous on marble tile, slippery wood floors, etc. I absolutely loathe when people ask me to take my shoes off. The germ argument is so retarded. Unless you are wearing a medical mask, you are breathing in all kinds of shit walking down an NYC sidewalk anyway.
