I follow this person on Twitter, and I'm sure she means this literally, and I'm OK with it.

When they wear shoes indoors, do amerikkkans put on their socks and shoes before they step out of bed?

In my childhood, my white family took our shoes off and put them in the closet. We walked around in socks all day.

Having enough Asian and neat flat mates got me in the habit of going barefoot or having special in-house slippers (for cold days).

Not that I live in the S'Shah anyways, but whenever I've been there, I've always taken off my shoes just by the door, as does anyone else, and this goes for Norway as well. Putting them in a closet rather than under the coats and jackets and stuff sounds strange to me.

What really gets me about Seppo houses is the doorknobs, though. And also the beds. And the asbestos.

Ya, as an adult, I just kick them off next to the door, as does my partner. Friends who visit just do this without having to be asked, so it seems normal.

yeah what's the deal with the little globe door handles that give you no leverage and you have to awkwardly twist your wrist to open the door? and what's the deal with the useles little clicky lock thing in the middle? what smart brain designed this bullshit and what lobbyist paid off their whole nation to get them installed everywhere?

They're actually against code in a lot of places these days specifically because they're hard to grip and turn for anyone with reduced grip strength, and a pain to open with occupied hands

If a house has them they can stay, but for renovations or new builds a lot of people are going with regular paddle style door handles

They look nice and they're not that inconvenient. Also, they're more difficult to catch clothes or elbows on.

I'm not well traveled but in the US, at least the part I'm from, they usually are under the coats... in the coat closet, of which there is usually one by the front door in single family houses

I was for sure “barefoot in home all day” camp growing up, but I’m in “socks” camp now that we have a bunch of cats hahaha
