When the heat turns on, I get tumble bunnies rolling across the floor.. A and that's with vacuuming and hand picking up the dog hair constantly.

House shoes or no shoes for us.
And I'm still shocked each week at the dirty floors when I do house cleaning. I shudder to think how gross they would be if we wore outside shoes in the house.
I mean, think about it...your outside shoes have been all over the floors of public places. Imagine the dirt, grime, chemicals, bodily fluids, etc.

and Americans in TV and Movies do this (often at least). That's why it seems more of an "American thing"
Dont you realise the absolute ridiculousness of that sentence?
So if you watched British TV and movies and saw people in houses with their shoes on it would be a 'British thing'.
Its only an American thing to you because you see it on their TV and movies.

That's the world I live in.

Of course 99.9% of all people everywhere have the common sense to take shoes off if they are dirty or wet
I actually did laugh out loud at that, nice one skalla!

Why do people feel like America is the pinnacle of these cultural issues?
Many citizens of other countries wear their shoes indoors.
Many citizens in the U.S do not wear their shoes indoors.
In fact, the majority of homes that I've stepped into within the U.S that aren't party dens or bachelor pads- you take your shoes off.
Why do some earthlings see flags and nations instead of individual people?
That's what I want to know.

See, that's the thing though. In my country no one ever asks their guests to take their shoes off, the guests just do it because it's normal not to wear shoes in the house. You can wipe your shoes all you want, they still are going to be dirty in some form or another.
