I have to agree with this. I always take my shoes off right at the door mat before I walk inside the house because the thought of all those germs getting on my floors grosses me out. Think about all the places our shoes go when we're outside: Filthy sidewalks, public restroom floors, etc.

I'm Taiwanese and love in America. Being raised by An Asian family, it's always been expected (or rather, the norm) to take off your shoes when going in he house. But, when I went to visit my caucasian friend at her house, I noticed that she kept her shoes on. When I took mine off, she told me that I didn't have to do so. Why don't Americans take off their shoes? Don't you think it's dirty when you wear your outdoor shoes inside?

The practice of taking shoes off can be found throughout Asia. It is also common in Scandinavia and in Hawaii and Alaska. In Japan, many homes have a getabako, or shoe cupboard where shoes are stored. Taking shoes off is a symbolic gesture that leaves the outer world behind. Shoes are traded for comfortable slippers and home becomes a separate sanctuary.

In the US (northeast) it is considered rude to ask an adult to take off their shoes indoors. Only children are required to in most 'nicer' homes.
If you're having a party, consider the fact that your guests have put some thought into their entire outfit including which shoes to wear. They won't want to walk around barefoot, in socks or (dear God!) a pair of slippers you have provided.
Sorry, but when we Americans think about going shoeless indoors, it reminds us of those stinky ball pits at Chuck-e-Cheese. It's for kids, not adults.

People who take dumps at parties. I've been to countless parties over the years and have been shocked at the number of times someone took a dump at the party and fouled up the bathroom.
I remember one particularly bad incident. At this particular party, the hosts kept the party downstairs where there was one half-bath off the kitchen for guests to use. I was standing in line while my friend used the bathroom and was behind a woman who seemed fidgety. This woman almost knocked my friend down when he came out of the bathroom, so it was clear she was desperate. I had to go after her and she must have been in there about 20 minutes. At that point, I and another woman were waiting to go. We started to remark on how long it was taking the woman in the bathroom. Well it turns out that it took her that long to deposit her nuclear waste. When she was done, she came out and averted her eyes. Then it was my turn.
The smell was so bad I thought I was going to die. It made me gag and almost sick to my stomach. Just nasty and vile. I couldn't stay in there and came out of the bathroom immediately. Lucky for me, the person next in line was, as I wrote above, the woman who chatted with me while we waited forever for nuclear waste dump, so she knew I couldn't have done it. She walked in to see if she could stand it but came right back out. She was appalled. We discreetly brought one of the hosts over. He couldn't believe how nasty the smell was. He put on sign on the door that the bathroom was out of order and to use the upstairs bathroom.

People who don't wipe well enough and the shit stain is visible on their clothes (pants/trousers). This is something I find utterly disgusting and there is absolutely no excuse for it. I have sometimes wondered if this is a strange deficiency found more frequently in the South, especially among white trash types who mindlessly vote republican and listen to Rush Limbaugh(who probably himself doesn't wipe well, hence his idiotic claptrap--dirty hole at one end produces the diarrhea of the mouth at the other end) and others like him. A question: does anyone think that straight men in general don't wipe as well?
Although I am as gay as they come, so to speak, I find swallowing cum or rubbing it on one's face or other body parts to be quite disgusting and if I am watching porn that shows it I invariably look away. I don't know why, but I put cum on a level with snot--I guess that's why they call it cocksnot.

r96, I started noticing it with the huge "breast cancer awareness" push starting about ten years ago, especially the "Komen for The Cure" shit. I am pretty sure this entire country is now as "aware" as they can be of breast cancer. Now, how about we take all the money people spend to throw these fancy events, "walks", special "pink" products (napkins, wristbands, food packaging etc), dye locks of their hair pink, and all of this other cutesy shit, and funnel it all to cancer research and development.

I worked with a man who was a big ball of disgusting.
He used to thrust his hands under the belted waistband of his pants, cradling his fat stomach. Then he would handle documents that we all had to touch.
He had a handkerchief he loudly trumpeted into, at a table in the lunchroom. Then he would open it and examine it thoroughly. Other times he would stand over the table, pull it out, then pull it apart sending dried snot all over.
Nose and ear hair full of little clots of matter.
Huge wet armpit stains. He would come to the half walled work are of someone, stand in the doorway and prop his arms up on either side.
Interminable hypochondriac conversation about his yeast infections,his sores on his tongue, his hemorrhoids, his bathroom troubles, etc.

R136 I am so with you, and over the whole "community" for breast cancer.
There's a great book called Bright Sided that addresses this. The author, who's written a few other good books, learned she had breast cancer. She went onto web sites and to group meetings expecting that she'd get support and advice...instead it was a group who felt "blessed" by cancer and expected her to be endlessly sunny about her diagnosis.

R173, go back and reread my post. I wrote that we discreetly brought one of the hosts over. Do you understand what that means? Apparently not given your post. Also, there were two of us who pointed it out to the host and neither of us knew each other before the party, so the host knew it couldn't have been either one of us to have done it. Why would two strangers cover for each other?
R176, you have no idea how bad the smell was. Also, this was an old house and the half-bath was an addition. It did have poor ventilation. The host did light a candle, but again, I can't even describe how bad it smelled. The candle barely put a dent in the rank odor. We all speculated that she must have had some kind of medical problem because it was so nasty.
Lastly, I totally agree with you that there should have been more than one bathroom available, but the dumper would have fouled one of them and the party eventually would have been reduced to one place to pee. Or poop.

Americans are terrified of natural smells. The foot of an average middle class American has been scrubbed with anti-bacterial soap, sprayed with anti-fungal foot deodorant, covered in anti-microbrial and moisture 'wicking' socks and are in shoes lined with charcoal pads. Despite this, asking them to remove shoes is an uncomfortable proposition because they STILL will believe they will be judged for having bad feet.
For the record though, I agree shoes are filthy and I live in NYC and the sidewalks are coated in all sorts of foulness. I would never ever wear my shoes past my doorway.

People working retail in high end stores. The ones that judge you with a once over elevator glance when you just stop in while running errands. Stop the snooty attitude. You work in retail so you shouldn't be judging anyone. It's a service position. Get over yourself. I can buy and sell you. You're not going to get my sale if you pull attitude with me. It only takes a few minutes of my time to report you to higher ups with a few clicks online.

R233 in Asia people take their shoes off. In some countries they have special slippers they wear in the house. I have relatives who spent a lot of time in Asia and when you enter their house there are shoes neatly lined up by the door and you are expected to remove them. They live here in the US now but collected some fabulous carpets in Qatar which cover almost their entire house like an Arabian tent so it feels really nice walking on them. My mother also has people take their shoes off. She doesn't want her wood floors getting scratched. She lives in TX.

I am an American and I don't understand this either. All "Oriental" means is "eastern". I know that makes it "Eurocentric", but we don't have a problem with "Middle East" and "Near East".

It's not just about what it literally denotes. It's about the old racism that used to confront Asians in that word.

So, R253, are you defending those in retail with their faux superior attitude? Are you one of these posers yourself? Or maybe you just troll this site looking for arguments?
Snooty salespeople are most annoying when superficially judging customers on how they appear when shopping on a day off in casual clothes. It's so irritating because these posers are judging you by looking for superficial signs of wealth. They completely overlook the way you're carrying yourself or the manner in which you speak. I can spot a nouveau riche from old money a mile away but I know better. I also know you never judge potential customers in retail.
It's right up there with people who mistake good manners for weakness. You're not going to up your sales stats and/or commission by giving me attitude because you can't discern a person of means from a browser who doesn't have two nickels to rub together. You might think you can tell but for all you know I've just finished a stint at Betty Ford and am not up on my game right now. You really never know who you are dealing with until they speak. I'm not going to purchase from you just to embarrass you when it dawns on you just who you are dealing with when you run my card through the sale. I'll contact management and put a big black stain on your employee record is what I will do. It will probably be the last straw as if you're treating me with your phony contempt it means you're treating everyone as such.
The topic is "Things That Disgust You" and pretentious people who are nothing and think because they've been hired to represent an upscale brand makes them a member of the elite disgust me. Being kind to others without immediate judgement is the hallmark of true class and it doesn't cost you a penny. See how that works? Thank you for reading.

There are two things are work with the very wealthy R280/R281. A lot of people with money have devoted their lives to making as much money as possible, doesn't make them bad people, but it does give you a sense of their priorities and how that might differ from other people's priorities who didn't think making a lot of money was the most important thing.
Two, there is a certain sense of entitlement that comes from having a lot of money. It is inevitable because well..having money does entitle you to certain things.
There are evil people with money sure, just as there are evil people without money, but in my experience that is real psychological factors when you are dealing with someone who is wealthy.

One of the most fun jobs I ever had was as a sales associate at Neiman-Marcus. However, some people came in with their defenses up so high it was like they were looking for a fight. They were mostly non-regular customers who were returning a gift. Back then, N-M return policies were very liberal. I once accepted back a shirt that had been a victim of a bleach accident (the tag said no bleach). But it seemed like some people were looking for a reason to act like I was trying to pull something on them. Why shop at a store you're uncomfortable at?

also, the words "awesome" "amazing" and using "issues" as a blanket term for every malady under the sun. Also, using the term "emotional" for every non phlegmatic human response.
