More on shoe removal

The Internet is a pretty astounding place. Earlier this week I wrote a post about homeowners asking guests to remove their shoes. I said that I found this to be a ridiculous request, but the point of my piece was to suggest that people should feel free to step outside the norm but also be prepared to be viewed as odd, bizarre or even rude as a result.

I received a lot of responses regarding this post via email, Twitter and Facebook, and most people sided with me. But no one seemed to care about my overarching message. In the end it was all about the shoes.

Kind of frustrating, I must admit.

Nevertheless, a few people did not agree with my position, including one reader who actually writes a blog that defends the removal of shoes in the home.

Just imagine: a whole blog dedicated to the subject!

I’m in the process of reading through the posts and am trying to maintain an open mind on the subject, but it’s admittedly difficult.

The whole idea seems like lunacy to me.

But the fact that the Internet provides a forum for a person to argue in favor of shoe removal in the home is a testament to its scope and reach.

What an amazing world in which we live.
