***Do you wear shoes in your house?
***If you don't wear shoes in your house, do you ask your guests to take their shoes off? If so, do you provide them with slippers/socks? Or is the rule for family only?
We wear shoes in our house, so this is a non-issue for our guests. Sometimes guests actually feel more comfortable if they have their shoes off, and we're fine with that, as long as their feet don't smell. ;-)
When I go to someones house, I try to remember to take along a pair of socks. That way, if they prefer me to take my shoes off, I feel more at ease doing so. For some reason, I am *not* comfortable at someones house with my shoes off (though I do go barefoot at home quite often). One time it was the express wish of someone, and I didn't have socks. I had a *HUGE* runner in my nylons, and didn't wish to while the evening away with my big toe sticking out! So I asked the lady of the house for a pair of socks.
And while I do not necessarily feel comfortable with bare feet, I always respect the host and hostesses wishes!
