I am wondering if it's too rude to ask (insist?) that people remove their shoes when entering my home? I have a humorous little poem on the front door that seems to go unnoticed by most people. I realize that some people wear boots (some of my adult sons) but I really would appreciate it if they removed their shoes. We have a nice long bench right inside the door so it's easy to sit down. When I have my Christmas get together, how can I get them to remove their footwear so it's a lighthearted thing and not a command.......especially, if it is wet outdoors? Do I need to provide coverings for their feet and if so, where do I get them?
