Why I Don’t Wear Shoes In My House
If you don’t remove your shoes, you can’t enter. I’ve had so many people complain when they come to my home and I ask them to remove theirs shoes, yes the cable guy too. As an individual who has a house full of carpet, I do not allow people to walk through my house with heir shoes on.
1. I want to keep my carpet clean
2. Do you know how dirty your shoes are
Let me explain my why? I’m a complete germaphobe and clean freak. I take pride in how clean I keep my house, emphasis on “I”…another blog. A few years ago I was grabbing food at Nations. Off topic, but Nations has amazing pie!
Back to the topic at hand, I was sitting in my car waiting on my order. The Nations in my city is in a very sketchy area. I honestly don’t like going after dark, but this day, I got caught by Daylight Savings. Anyway, as I was sitting in my car watching my surroundings like a hawk I noticed a lady, she appeared to be high. She was wearing a dress and a trench coat…disturbing that I remember but what happened shook me and will be forever ingrained in my memory. She was walking and talking to herself, then I noticed her spread her legs and begin to pee. I thought wow, I hope that’s it! She looked at it, backed up, peed a little more then walked away.
About 3 minutes later, a car of teenagers pulls into the parking lot, parks and gets out. Y’all know where I’m going with this right? They start walking to the entrance and walked right through the pee probably thinking it was an innocent puddle of water! Not so…now imagine them going home, walking around on their carpet with those same shoes 🤢.
Now I know that was an extreme case, but it’s one of the many reasons why I don’t wear shoes in the house, however, I am a gracious host and I do offer socks. I guarantee the next time you walk through a puddle this will cross your mind 🤔 “water or pee?”
Do you wear shoes on your home? Why or why not? Share in the comments.
