Spike heels dented screen porch floor- Confront?
At Thanksgiving this year, we had dh's family over, which we do every two years. After dinner, some of the women and I were sitting on the screened in porch which has pine tongue and groove flooring.
One of the cousins, here at the house for the first time(with her new husband) wore spiked heeled boots that she angled into the floor. At first I couldn't tell what was happening but as i covertly watched, noticed she was putting dents into the floor.
Well, we sat out there for another 30 minutes or so and this started to really get to me. And I didn't know what to do.
In the middle of the group ask her to stop? Graciously, of course. But then she and everyone would know she had put noticeable dents in the floor, in a conspicuous spot, and would feel bad.
I said nothing....but later wish I had said something!
She's young, early twenties and fashionable. She was young enough to feel mortified and also not know enough about houses.
Now there is a very visible spot with a bunch of dents.
