I have carpet, but I don't take my shoes off, nor do I ask other people to take their shoes off unless it's especially rainy or snowy outside. Instead I vacuum regularly and use carpet cleaner twice a month
@Not him again, where I grew up the primary problem was grass burs not mud. Legos have nothing on grass burs. Where I live now that is much less of a problem.
@ cobyone27, I live in the city, right now the problem is all the flower crap that the fancy trees people plant are dropping
@Not him again, Do you have kids?
@mazemarble, no, just my dog. I make sure to wipe her feet before she comes inside. If I had kids, they would definitely be taking their shoes off
@Not him again, Then your carpets are safe
This is proof that macaque has a mind of its own.
I understand if it has a rug/carpet but if its wood or tile then idk
What kind of psycho takes their shoes when entering someone’s house for the first time?
@BigJohnson86, a civilized psycho who wants to show respect and not trash another person's floor with dirty shoes
@Juggernaut315, how bout you keep your shoes clean. Don’t live in sloth. Which is another reason I won’t take them off right away. You don’t know what kinda grossness they have in their house. I got people I wouldn’t take my shoes off at their place if you paid me
@BigJohnson86, easier said than done when you're feeling with nature. But I mean I guess the situation also calls for a evaluation of the place which you can do when you walk in the door and take your shoes off in the entry way
@Juggernaut315, where do you live that you gotta live with nature going to someone’s house? We got sidewalks where I live and enough crime I wouldn’t leave my shoes outside.
@BigJohnson86, in most the world you're suppost to take your shoes off when entering a house. I know America is an exception to that rule, and I can't think of anywhere else that is.
@Duncan5769, I’ve been to Europe a couple times and when I went to someone’s house they didn’t take their shoes off immediately and didn’t ask me to.
@BigJohnson86, well I can only speak from a Canadian POV, that's how we do it here. If someone doesn't take their shoes off, you yell at them until they do.
@Duncan5769, now I know you’re lying. As if a Canadian could actually yell at someone.
@BigJohnson86, I never said leave your shoes outside, take them off in the entry way, i.e. after you walk in the front door so you can assess it
@BigJohnson86, as long as that person is polite, we will not
@Juggernaut315, so you wear shoes into someone’s house?
@BigJohnson86, now you're just getting technical. I walk into someone's house into the designated rug or door mat or entry way, then remove them. I don't track it through the place.
@Juggernaut315, so they don’t know how to wipe feet where you live? Here we have a mat and clean our shoes before going in someone’s house. Just like when you enter someone business.
@BigJohnson86, someone who’s REALLY trusting that these people aren’t gonna try to kill ‘em
@Duncan5769, *looks at you suspiciously* Canadians don’t yell at people. They just apologize less politely
@Berntley, so not Americans?
@BigJohnson86, this conversation is just slowly devolving and you're coming across as increasingly rude, so have a good day.
@Juggernaut315, devolving? It started with you insinuating that I’m disrespectful, slothenly and uncultured. Either you get that I’m being sarcastic or you started into it with an insult. Either way your condescending comment should be fixed. Don’t say it’s devolving when it was never evolved to begin with. The rude part is spot on though.
@BigJohnson86, I wasn't insinuating that at all.
@Juggernaut315, I question the sanity of someone that does something your response is “only a civilized psycho who wants to show respect and not trash a persons floor with dirty shoes.” Since I do not you are implying I am the opposite of these things. Unless insinuating means something different where you live.
@BigJohnson86, wow, you’re coming off as extremely booty hurt over an internet debate. Lol. Sorry I laughed.
@Leslie Knope 2020, oh I wanted to add, that I take my shoes off if, upon entering a home, I notice that there is a place where shoes are obviously put for that reason. Some people have a rack, or mat, or just a few pairs of shoes lined up... that’s the usual sign that they’d prefer your shoes off. And also, I used to have friends that had gross homes... I stopped visiting them and inviting them over instead
@Leslie Knope 2020, no it’s good to laugh.
@Duncan5769, fellow canuck can confirm we scream at them and hit them with hockey pucks until they do.
@Hellboi, and we don't share any maple syrup with them
@Juggernaut315, how can you keep your shoes clean that well if you’re just walking in? I️m not saying I️ trudge through mud every day, but I️ live in a rainy place so I️ have to walk In with wet shoes a lot, and I️ don’t want to track water everywhere
In other news.. does that giraffe have a brain tumor?
@DarthJamal, yeah what is that?? Looks like a tumor to me.
Chimpanzee is an ape tho...
@big freedom, so are humans.
If someone comes into my house with shoes on they’re not walking out. Lemme tell ya.
GRafs have huge brains.
@Yusuke Urameshi, *Gifs
So, an Asian made this.
Seriously none of these look anything like the label claims...except maybe sheep
Well, I work in the homes of what most would consider to be the underprivileged population, all with mental illness and other deficits. Well maintained homes are considered a rarity in my day to day dealings. If I were to take my shoes off in every home I walked into, my feet would have probably melted off by now.
@Berntley, well most people keep their shoes on while working as well. Visiting friends and family is quite different than working.
@Leslie Knope 2020, Agreed. The picture doesn’t seem to make that distinction. Personally, I tend to look at their (sexy) feet when I step inside, and if they have their shoes off, I ask if they want me to take mine off.
@Berntley, because of your original comment I started thinking of a world where taking shoes off is law when entering a home, even for emergency personnel. Lol, imagine firefighters and EMTs struggling to get shoes off before they can help with that gun shot wound
@Leslie Knope 2020, Haha, dear lord
Macaque isn’t the biggest, but it’s not too small either.
