For example: My friend always walks in my house with her shoes on! I tell her please DON"T walk in my house with your shoes on. I have a baby who eats everything off of the floor, including the dirt tracked in by your shoes. She insists she'll only be a minute. It DOESNT MATTER if its a minute or five! You're still bringing dirt in! I remind her before she even sets foot in my house, yet, she will walk right in and ignore me. AHHHHHH!!!!!!! The rules apply to you too!!! Or better yet, my other friend: her kids will come in the back door (I babysit them) and leave their shoes there. Yet, when she comes to pick them up, she'll tell them to go put on their shoes. So they'll go get their shoes, then put them on in the middle of the living room and walk all over my clean floor with their snowy/wet/salty/sandy feet. grrrrr I have salt stains on my floor from their shoes :( Why do some people think the rules don't apply to them?

I feel for you. We had a shoe rule in our last house and it drove me nuts. I was good at enforcing rules, and had socks available for people who didn't want to go barefoot. We did have leniency for grandma. She was 84 and would have broken a hip trying to put her shoes on and off. Really though, you have to be unwavering about it, or people won't do it.

Sounds like you just need to be more firm about the house rules to her. Put your foot down about these things.
