    Default Do you take your shoes off at the house?

    Apparently I am among one of the few who don't. Is this weird?

    I do whatever they tell me to do. I'm not going to wear shoes in somebody's house but like smurf I don't want to go to the effort of putting them back on in a little while. If I'm staying overnight or whatever then I'll take them off because ugh I need freedom

    They see me rolling. They hating, patrolling.
    Trying to catch me riding dirty.

    Depends whose house I'm in. If everyone else takes off their shoes, then I'll remove mine. In my house, it's okay to stomp around in your boots if you want to.

    I follow house rules, so if the rules are to have them off, then off they go! If no house rules, I'll just keep em on, unless asked to remove them. As for my house, they're off.

    I am just... that ace!

    i have a friend who has some weird security thing about his feet and visiting friends with him is a real chore because he hates to take his shoes off and will be visibly uncomfortable all night

    I take my shoes off in my house, but follow house rules when I'm somewhere else.

    Yup, this.

    If no rules were specified on arrival though I would probably gage it by how nice their carpet is.

    Yeah. HOuse rules def if I'm going elsewhere.

    At home, though, I kick them off as soon as I walk in the door. I typically make my daughter take her's off too, along with her socks 'cuz I can't stand socks getting gross dirty on the bottoms.

    I take mine off if it isn't awkward to do so. I never wear shoes or socks at home, but I don't care if others do.

    Of course I take my shoes off. Unless the house is dirty or I know they do normally have their shoes on indoors, but it still feels weird. Most places I've been where they tell you you can keep your shoes on, they themselves have their shoes off and normally they have their shoes off in their house, but they say keep them on because they don't want to be a bother. But I mean, jeez. Especially when I go over for a dinner thing and they've obviously spent hours cleaning, I'm not going to drag my dirty shoes through the house like that.

    I take my shoes off at my house. If I'm at someone else's house, depending on how well I know them, I might feel weird baring my feet because doing so suggests a more casual atmosphere, I guess. Good friends and family, yeah, they're going off. Acquaintances and people I don't know, like if I've been dragged there to accompany someone else, they're staying on.

    Of course I take my shoes off, and I've never been to the house of someone who didn't do the same. Why the hell would anyone leave their shoes on and have uncomfortable feet while tracking dirt everywhere? The very concept make no sense.

    Apparently it's a regional thing. Down here it seems mostly shoes off, but certainly not all.

    At home, I leave my shoes and socks off always. At other people's houses it's kind of up in the air. I do it if I'm asked to (or if I'm simply at a good friend/family's house), but I'm more uncomfortable with it with people I don't know as well for some reason. Part of it is that my feet tended to smell atrocious when I was younger. Still do sometimes. I would go places where I was absolutely not allowed to wear my shoes so that we don't track in dirt or whatever, but then I'd have to deal with comments the whole time I'm there about my feet and I would hate it.
