we have a new white carpet and the only way to keep it clean is to make the family and all visitors put slippers on when they arrive.we all love to walk around and relax in barefeet and soft comfy slippers.friends love to come to our house because we are all so chiiled out. also i leave a slection of attractive slippers by the door. as soon as visitors see us a answer the door in slippers and see the carpet they dont have a problem. we have many friends we the same policy. i wont go to house where they only make children take of their shoes. i find that very rude. when we visit friends we never go without taking our slippers and volunteer to put them. some poeple feel uncomfortable about making visitors wear slippers so by putting them on voluntarily its prevent any embarrassment and conflict. do you all aggree with me if not why not.my canadian friends say thats its considered very rude not to takes your shoes off in the house.and that its common place to see a selection of slippers by the door for everyone to put on. why do people have such a problem with wearing slippers especially in cold weather.dont poeple like to feel relaxed in the house.try to be as honest as possible.i know this suject is very contentious.why is that. do you feel that you have the right to drag the outside world into your house.why would yoy not want to put on your slippers and chill out.iv have never had a problem with it. the family all agree.its also nice to get slippers as a surprise present.my teenage daughters adore their christmas floppy slippers at gave them. do you buy your family and friends slippers as presents. lets make this a good open and honest discussion and not feel offended if people disagree.
