    What amazes me is how many times I see people walking barefoot on the street/sidewalk! Talk about living dangerously!

    Never gave it a thought. Barefoot in the room all the time and no hand sanitizer for me. I just wash my hands before eating.

    Now I must admit that people playing slots or VP and eating at the same time, does gross me out.

    Back up buddy. I don't like the sound of this for one second. What are people doing to the coffee makers?

    I never thought of it before it was mentioned on another thread. I'd be afraid to take a black light to the room. I'm often in a suite, where quite likely there has been a bachelor party...............
    Have you never seen Dateline where they go into a hotel room with a black light and.........bodily fluids become apparent.
    If guys are throwing it on the ceiling....they're putting it in the coffee maker too!

    Heck, I even walk barefoot down the hall to the ice machine! :licklips:

    I'm quite astonished by the germaphobia/paranoia in this thread.

    I wear them around the hotel room (suite) but since the Women's pair is usually much longer and wider than my feet (I wear a 5.5-6 Narrow), I don't try to wear them outside. I bring a pair of yoga mat flip flops for spa and pool outings.

    I wear socks.

    People have been known to urinate, defecate and ejaculate into the coffee apparatus.

    Meh. Germs, schmerms. A little more dirt doesn't hurt.

    Although it is all fun and games until somebody loses a foot.

    I am a RN well educated in infection control practices and I often consider wearing footwear in the hotel room. However, even though I bring flip flops to wear in the room and in the bathroom, I rarely put them on. I have witnessed the housekeepers shampooing the carpet and disinfecting the bathroom floors so that does ease my mind somewhat. If you have ever visited someone in the hospital and then walked back in your house with the shoes you wore in the hospital, you are likely to be in much more danger of transmitting dangerous, life threatening bacteria into your house than you would be by picking up something from the hotel room carpet or bathroom floor with your bare feet. I hope this eases your fears.

    Good Lord, you make it sound like an epidemic. People have been KNOWN to shoot up movie theaters...do you not go to the movies because of that? What exactly is stepping on some dried jizz on the carpet going to do to you?

    Or the TV Remote.

    I had socks with me in Vegas last month, but can't think if I wore them in the room or not. Most times I go barefoot all the time unless I am going to the store, work, a restaurant, etc.

    Good point!

    The amount of people carrying concealed weapons legally in a casino on an average night is a non-zero number but they're always packed too.

    It's all about one's choice in managing risk. The definition of risk is the probability of occurrence multiplied by the consequences. Getting a foot infection from the carpet or a cut from broken glass is also a non-zero number. The consequences can be severe. The probability can be reduced as many chime in with various forms of footware to minimize the probability and maybe that's done subconsciously.

    I've cut my foot on carpet tacks in hotel rooms. Pisses me off, shouldn't be running around barefoot. That's one of the reasons I always carry a tube of antibiotics with me. Often find them next to the bathroom when they cut the carpet too short. Never made a hotel claim.

    I hate slippers, flip flops, thick socks. But that's me. Everybody manages their own risk!

    Iv never given it much thought. But if you touch the chips in the casino, your touching worse. Thinking about it, people pee and poop themselves, then through the chips in their nasty pocket and pick their nose all the way to the cage and cash them in then they get recirculated. Think I am joking? I have seen it all working in a casino.

    I go barefoot when possible, including in a hotel room.

    I could care less about walking around with bare feet. I 100% wash my hands after touching chips or slot machine buttons.

    I saw this thread on another link............

    http://forum.alanbestbuys.com/showthread.php?3512-Shame-on-Harrah-s

    If you don't think people are doing things in a room ......just to be a jerk, I think it's naive. I'm not using the coffee maker when there is a possibility that someone has taken a dump in it.
