I love ehell because I'm pretty sure that it's the only place on the planet where school supplies, shoes on/off in the house, and shopping carts are controversial issues.
Oh, and let's not forget the hot topic of having coffee on hand to serve to overnight guests.
OT, but dangit, Cathy! I'm all excited about approaching 1000 posts and you're a couple away from 18,000! I'll never catch up!
Very true.I had a conversation with my co-workers about gravy. My family always puts milk in it. Apparently this makes us incredibly weird.I had to laugh over it, as I never expected to have a huge, contentious discussion over the ingredients of gravy!!!

I can't see why a polite request in a PM would be a problem, as long as you're prepared to either not get an answer or get a beandip. Our mods are some of the least gossipy-dishy I've seen.....

I'm surprised about the shoes off or on - Being from the north, I'd say I can see that there's no "right answer" but that it probably just very much depends on the weather/seasonality of where you live!
You should do a search. There are a few camps-~The guest should be able to do what the guest chooses (on or off)~The host should be able to dictate that the shoes stay on because- feet are dirty, feet stink, feet are ugly, etc~The host should be able to dictate that the shoes come off because- it will mess up the carpet, hard wood floor, track in germs/dirt, etc.I think those are the main ones. Shopping carts and eating unpaid for food in the grocery store are fun too.

Yes, I was amazed at the discussion over recipe sharing, blue jeans in the court room, and keeping a coffee pot on hand for guests. The recipe thread had me wishing I could experience the situation myself just so I could send it in to Miss Manners to get her take on it.Contentious threads are, however, an excellent way to highlight how one's own expectations are formed by one's circle of acquaintances.
