Leaving your shoes on indoors? ******* nasty americans, no wonder you're so fat, always ready to go out the door and grab a burger

Americans wear their shoes inside?

You don't take your shoes off in Tim Hortons....

Did you even question why you were the only one without shoes in Tim Hortons.

For 5. I think you mean "eh" not aye.
#95 to #3 - anon (05/08/2013) [-]
It's not "Aye", it's "Eh". They say "Aye" in Scotland.

"Time Hortons"
User avatar #49 to #3 - Zydratejunkie (05/08/2013) [-]
We have to put gas stations at rest stops because otherwise there wouldn't be enough along the highway for people traveling long distances.
It is a bit cold for 7 months of the year yes, but from May until September it can actually be quite nice, it was 23C (73.5F) today, and in late July and early August is regularly gets up to 35-40C (95-104F).
Tim Hortons is indeed our life blood, we love that stuff.
Shoes are taken off so you don't track mud and dirt through the house, it's simple hygiene.
"Aye" isn't a word, but I believe you mean "Eh".
#44 to #3 - anon (05/08/2013) [-]
We spell it "Eh." You silly butt.

I'm drinking a Timmies Ice Cap at the moment. :)

I don't understand that, do people really wear their shoes IN their house in america or wherever?

User avatar #318 to #4 - gadgetzan ONLINE (05/08/2013) [-]
I live in Sweden and I've never encountered a household where people wear shoes indoors. Every house has a small rack to put your shoes on as soon as you enter. If anyone just waltzed in without taking their shoes of people would probably assume you were drunk or borderline retarded. It just doesn't make sense to me to have shoes indoors, you walk around all day outdoors protecting your feet from filth, only to drag it all into your house when you get home.

it sounds extremely dirty
User avatar #303 to #4 - klina (05/08/2013) [-]
Where I live, most people don't, but I don't care, I wear shoes inside for warmth and personal pleasure.
User avatar #299 to #4 - wolfishcharm (05/08/2013) [-]
I absolutely despise wearing my shoes anywhere. I only do so where it's needed. If I could, I'd walk around barefoot. In my own house, I never wear shoes. I never wear socks. I don't even like my guests to wear shoes or socks.

It just looks so uncomfortable to me.
I live in New Jersey.
User avatar #286 to #4 - meganinja (05/08/2013) [-]
I always take my shoes off whenever I'm in a house, but it's quite odd to do so if you're at a large gathering.
User avatar #283 to #4 - dotzero (05/08/2013) [-]
Apparently. I've been living in America for a couple years and I always take off my shoes when entering a house. I just thought that was proper manners and it avoided getting the floor dirty.
User avatar #250 to #4 - rifee ONLINE (05/08/2013) [-]
Was wondering the same. Seems so..unclean..
User avatar #244 to #4 - onionbubs (05/08/2013) [-]
Sometimes, when I have guests over, I put shoes on in my own house.
Even if I've been inside all day, I still put shoes on.
Even I dont know why...
User avatar #242 to #4 - infamoustrapper (05/08/2013) [-]
Um....yeah not sure what the **** everyone else is on about. Maybe it's some weird texas thing to be dirty and rude. But in new york we always take our shoes off because that makes sense. You don't want to track dirt through the house.

uhh, is this serious, or a troll... i cant ******* tell!

it's not.
#227 to #4 - anon (05/08/2013) [-]
not normally, but say you go over to someone's house to visit. you are probably not going to take your shoes off unless you are going to be staying over there for the night or something.
#208 to #4 - anon (05/08/2013) [-]
in germany we wear house shoes when we're in our own home and we take off our shoes when we are at a friends home.

I never take mine off, i feel naked without my shoes on.

#148 to #4 - makeitasyougo (05/08/2013) [-]
most places i go its strange to not wear shoes inside.If visiting for a decent period of time, say anything more than an hour or so, wait a few minutes, then take them off. its considered to be the acceptance of hospitality and good nature. the phrase "take your shoes off and stay a while" is used to imply hospitality and is an invitation to let the dogs loose.

Many do, it mostly depends on the cultural heritage of your parents and their strictness. i.e. Many families with parents of asian and islander origin won't wear shoes in the house.
User avatar #88 to #4 - nyork (05/08/2013) [-]
Depends, here in New York very few people wear their shoes indoors.
User avatar #58 to #4 - basicargentinian (05/08/2013) [-]
In argentina being barefoot is informal, for when you're home alone or when in an informal situation, like a getting togather with friends, specially if you're a child.
User avatar #54 to #4 - skinless (05/08/2013) [-]
**** yeah we do
User avatar #52 to #4 - cheeziswin (05/08/2013) [-]
Well, if you're just coming in and out, it would just be an inconvenience to take them off. Or, if you're at a party or something.

It's more of a situational thing. Like it's polite to take them off at the door if you're going to stay for some time, or if they're dirty. Although it's not really frowned upon if you're not staying inside too long and you're not tracking anything.
User avatar #37 to #4 - minnesotaids (05/08/2013) [-]
Just like Canada, Minnesota is the same with shoes.
User avatar #36 to #4 - ihaveakeyboard (05/08/2013) [-]
it really depends on the area. places where snakes used to be more prevalent usually keep their shoes on. (warmer places mostly)
User avatar #34 to #4 - fabledmocker **User deleted account** (05/08/2013) [-]
Yeah, its not a big deal.

Or at least we do in Texas, very few people ask you to take your shoes off.

Don''t your feet smell like **** ?
User avatar #266 to #259 - exotic (05/08/2013) [-]
if your feet are suffocating in the humid boots yeah
User avatar #231 to #34 - failtolawl ONLINE (05/08/2013) [-]
it's not based on where you live regionally, like European countries which have distinct cultural lines. depends on the culture, so I'm sure there are plenty of people in Texas that do frown upon shoes in the house. I know sometimes in florida they don't want shoes solely because there is mud everywhere.
User avatar #180 to #34 - uzzwick (05/08/2013) [-]
That's... that's pretty nasty.
User avatar #154 to #34 - spysappinmysasha (05/08/2013) [-]
yes well in Kentucky its an unspoken rule to take your shoes off after entering the home.

I mean, dont track the ******* mud in. ******* . Thats why we have Mudrooms, to take your ******* shoes off in.
User avatar #166 to #154 - ilovehitler (05/08/2013) [-]

Arizonafag here, and I can confirm it seems to be much the same. I have never once been asked to take my shoes off. When other people come in, like in a party or something, and DO take their shoes off, everybody looks at them as if they're odd.
#147 to #122 - anon (05/08/2013) [-]
From Vegas, people think im weird because i take my shoes off. It's common corticy to do so

I live in North Carolina, when ever I go to someone's house, I ask if they would like me to take off my shoes and they look at me like I am mad.
#26 to #4 - anon (05/08/2013) [-]
yup but its because we forget to take them off
User avatar #25 to #4 - ryanmck (05/08/2013) [-]
Yes why not?
#222 to #25 - delivering (05/08/2013) [-]
Because you wear those same shoes outside. Where there's dirt, and mud, and poo. Do you really want that sprinkled all over your house?
User avatar #311 to #222 - ryanmck (05/08/2013) [-]
Yeah because i track so much dirt mud and **** on my shoes when I walk on the sidewalk 90% of the time.
#312 to #311 - delivering (05/08/2013) [-]
And the sidewalk is, somehow, clean? People throw garbage on the sidewalk, and tons of people walk on the sidewalk, leaving whatever they walked through earlier, on it.
Still not a great idea.
#19 to #4 - toxicovrtake (05/07/2013) [-]
Apparently in his/her Family, Yes, But no, just like in Canada most people households will have anyone Entering take off their shoes when they walk into the house, People who do not do so are usually looked upon as if they were raised in a barn.

User avatar #5 to #4 - mattdoggy (05/07/2013) [-]
Here people just wear their shoes inside and then take them off unless they are really dirty or something. I'll wear mine to my room and then remove them. There it was i took two steps in the door and apparently i was bringing salt in to ruin their house or something
#32 to #5 - Coaltrain (05/08/2013) [-]
The salt is put on the roads to melt the ice. In northern areas where there is a lot of snow and/or rain, people tend to take their shoes off because of the snow, salt, slush, and mud that gets on their shoes. In drier, southern areas, people tend to leave their shoes on in the house because they don't dirty them outside, and they never have to wear big clunky boots.

Thats very odd actually, interesting but odd. I never thought people would actually wear shoes inside their house.
