...I have a workman fixing a new part onto our boiler and he's left his shoes on. He's walking through and we only had the carpets professionally cleaned a few months ago, plus I have a really nice but huuuuuge rug that he's stepped on in his shoes. I'm not good with stuff like this but would it seem really horrid to ask him to take his shoes off? I feel terrible and don't know how to phrase it even lol but My rug is predominantly creamy white and I really love it. Arrrrggghh. I feel awful but should I say something or is it just a bit pedantic?
