1. Not For Guests
"I take my shoes off at the front door. The rest of my family does also. But we would never dream of asking a guest to remove their shoes." - Julie M.
2. Asking Homeowner
"I shouldn't have to ask guests to remove their shoes. If they have common sense or proper etiquette, they would automatically take their shoes off or ask me what my preference is."- Amy B.R.
3. Home is Not a Museum
"No way! We 'live' in our house. It's not a museum and we have doormats and a vacuum. I think it's very rude to be asked to remove my shoes, especially if I am not wearing socks. I don't want to walk barefoot on their filthy floor." - Leslie M.
