    you track feces all over the house whether you take your shoes off or not. Do you touch your shoes with your hands when you take them on and off? Yay, feces on your hands.

    I will always take my shoes off in someone else's house if that's the custom. It does bring in dirt. But people need to get off this stupid fucking "OMG E. coli" thing. The number of fuckwits writing such articles makes me sick.

    No shoes up in my house, but I don't make a big deal about it, just clean it after a guest leaves.

    Really don't get the "man but those floors are dirty" argument, just because something may be mildly dirty (and even so, likely far less than the inside of your shoes) doesn't mean you have free reign to go making it dirtier....... Also confused by the same logic dictating that showers should be taken in the morning only, yes your bed may get dirty after time, doesn't mean it's better to go jumping in it while nasty as fuck

    And the floors of the people who want to take your shoes off are most likely very clean, because they aren't wearing their shoes on those floors.

    What the fuck does this even mean? Do you wipe your ass with your socks?

    Also, here in America most houses enjoy indoor plumbing, so I can easily wash my hands upon coming home.

    Only way I can see people having a problem with being told to remove their shoes is if:
    A) they never lived in the realm of carpet
    B) they did not bring a shoehorn with them.

    Yeah. It basically means dying something after it has been assembled.

    Pffbbt, typical MC attitude, being offended that someone asks you to remove your shoes when you enter their house? I wonder if MCers actually adopt this attitude in real life, acting as if every (perceived) social or aesthetic slight is the most tragic event in their life.

    from your link:
    Look for coliform bacteria anywhere in your house and i guarantee you'll find it.


    how well advanced your society is. Congratulations. Doe you really wash your hands when you take of your shoes? seems a little pedantic to me.

    I'm not saying that removing your shoes doesn't prevent a lot of dirt coming into your house. It's a good idea, reduces a lot of cleaning. I am annoyed at the terrible faux microbiology reasoning. There's an ignorant group of people who think any bacteria anywhere is a bad thing.

    For some reason my ebay app isn't giving me my notifications so I'm missing out on things even as I sit at my computer. This fills me with great sadness

    Wrong, I've walked in peoples houses with socks and my socks are filthy within an hour. No point taking them off and sticking my dirty socks into my clean shoes.

    I'm in the no shoes off camp bitches.

    Ok ok. Taking shoes off (or not) when visiting is one thing, what I want to know is the reasoning behind the pussyism that is wearing shoes inside you own house !
