    ...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? :help:

    Thank yoooo! :flower: Reading how to say it I don't know why I was so uptight lol. I've mentioned it and he was really pleasant about it, he apologised though, which I didn't want him to do because I don't want him to feel like he's done anything wrong. I just wanna save my carpets and rug for as long as I can before having to have them cleaned again. Thanks ladies. xx

    Be brave, and either get him to take them off, or give him plastic bags for his feet :hugs:
