That said, I never wear shoes in the house and only wear slippers if my feet are cold. I just shampoo the carpet more frequently.
here's a peeve: bathrooms with blow dryers and no towels. I have gotten very obsessive (particularly in restuarants) about getting a towel to use to turn OFF the faucet after I wash my hands and to open the door with. What's the point of washing your hands if you are going to grab the dirty faucet handles or the dirty bathroom handles??
