Be no different if you did this as a guest on my couch in my living room - and would you??? So why on the train?

Actually, when I visit someone's home, I remove my shoes at the door.

On public transit, my shoes stay on and my feet are on the floor.

Just good ole common courtesy and common sense.

Really? I'm noticing this is becoming more rare. I actually have to ask people to take off their shoes.

Such as the window installer I had recently who tramped up my carpeted stairs and through my carpeted bedrooms in his work boots before I ask him to put on booties of take them off.

When I am a guest in someone's home, the shoes come off at the door. Well, even in my own house. Common courtesy.

But, my parents have had workmen in the house and had to tell them, countless times, to remove boots or put on booties. Especially on the white carpeted steps. Mom even asked the one man if he would do the same at his mother's house?

CJ, you'll remember our text exchange some mornings ago when the woman sitting near me decided to curl herself up so that her feet were on the seats (sort of like doing a squat, but sitting down).

When I asked her what would possess her to put her feet on the seats and enquired whether she would do this in someone's home, her very indignant (and somewhat victorious-sounding) response was "I'd do it in my OWN home!".

You just can't fix stupid. Or rude, apparently.

My parents leave their shoes on in their house...growing up this is the norm...when I visited friends homes, I always felt weird taking my shoes something wasn't right.

Now, its always shoes off for me in my home and elsewhere, but when my parents visit, I don't ask them to remove their shoes and they don't volunteer.

Any time my landlord or maintenance would come into my place I ALWAYS ended up having to vacuum up afterwards.
