I agree, if someone I don't know really well comes over I leave it up to them. No huffing or bad looks, honestly! I try to be a very gracious host and make everyone here feel at home! My first words are always "Nothin fancy, plop down wherever, let me get you a drink!" Southern hospitality.
Faye, I would never do that to a friend or person I was visiting. Only my family that knows the rules and are too lazy to follow them. As for the description of their floors... It would take a novel writing about that. It does seem rude, but they would agree that's the truth. MIL has three sons, two grandsons, and a outdoors husband that all track mud in the house daily. She lets them know (and me) how she feels about it, but then refuses to take hers off here.
I have a dust mop in the kitchen I go around with daily, mopping only when I start to see smudges, feels gritty, juice drips, the random broccoli smashed on the floor, and dog paws/hair! LOL!
You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!! What do you mean what do I mean?
