Today's social dilemma came up because of my crazy OCD. Over the weekend, I visited a friend who always asks people to take their shoes off when they come into their home. I never do that. I know I'm going to vacuum and wash the floors once a week anyway so I feel like, what could someone possibly bring into my house that I couldn't clean up. But my friend, who I love, has a thing about not wanting any dirt on her rug or floors. That being said, she has two little Papillion dogs, so trust me when I tell you there is dirt on both her floors and her rug, but it's her house, her rules. However, I'm a little (okay a lot) compulsive when it comes to shoes. I like to have shoes on at all times with the exception of sleeping and at the beach. Truly, even if I'm not going anyway, when I get dressed or even if I'm lounging around in my jammies, I always have shoes on. So my friend and I often butt heads on this issue. Even her husband thinks she's being rude asking people to take their shoes off. I consistently ask her if I could have an OCD exception and she says no, so usually we'll sit outside in the summer and then all gatherings will be at my house during the winter. Just wanted to know what you thought about this. Do you ask people to take their shoes off when you come into the house? Or do you feel like I do, leave them on if it makes you feel more comfortable.
