    Default I take it back: shoes on!

    I take it back. That thread I started ages ago saying I couldn't stomach people wearing shoes in my house.

    Just saw a lady walking barefoot accross the supermarket carpark. No - she wasn't pregnant.

    Put your shoes on in my house now ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1444380770.359688.jpgpeople!

    I just don't understand people not wearing shoes out in public. How hard is it to at least wear a pair of thongs?

    I've been out in thongs before (I live near the beach and it is the norm) and had one break. I wore my one thong into the shop to buy another pair (and carried my broken one).

    Perhaps you could introduce a foot washing ritual for visitors?

    Sometimes I don't wear shoes.

    Sometimes I even just wear socks

    Not to the shops though, I do wear shoes to the shops.

    Not a bad idea. I'll put disposable cleaning wipes and a little bin at the front door..

    I have run in to the shops with no shoes on before. I'm still alive to tell the tale

    Maybe some people enjoy feeling the ground beneath their feet and letting their toes wriggle freely

    Clearly they're just grubby, germ infested people with no soul

    The only place I really about no shoes is in a hospital.

    I vote getting everyone to put on the plastic disposable sock things (that probably actually have a name) whenever they enter your house. Over shoes or over bare feet will make sure you have all your bases covered.

    I've been out in thongs before (I live near the beach and it is the norm) and had one break. I wore my one thong into the shop to buy another pair (and carried my broken one).
    Dh never ever wore shoes if he went to the shops or even walking up the street. It grossed me out so much! So my mum bought him a pair of thongs and now he wears them religiously. Where he grew up and lives most of his life it was the norm not to wear any footwear up the street.

    I have ducked into the shop without shoes- normally i leave a pair of thongs in the car but occasionally i forget if i take them out. Be stuffed if i am driving all the way home again and back to the shop.

    And i only own thongs... apart from my 2 pairs of winter boots which get worn maybe once a year. I live in my thongs!
