Filthy hooves on the carpet

Here's an entertaining ABC News segment on how dirty your shoes are. Guests tend to frequently trample your freshly cleaned hardwood floor or carpet in the US. In my opinion, you should always ask the host if it's a shoes on or shoes off house. After seeing the ABC story, you're not going to want to let any guests drag their filthy hooves across your floors anymore.

The shoes off policy tends to be the overwhelming default in China. You'd understand why if you've ever been into a hutong bathroom or a countryside outhouse.

In my opinion, it should be shoes off and no dirty hooves allowed regardless of what country you're in.
