Is It Rude To Ask For A Wi-Fi Password When You Visit?
There'a an old saying, "Your house, your rules." That sounds reasonable, doesn't it? In Japan, guests are expected to remove their shoes before entering. That sounds like a good rule to me. I've been annoyed by dinner dates taking their phones out of their purse & placing it on the table immediately upon arrival. That begs the question, Is it rude to ask for someone's wi-fi password when you visit? A recent survey says many consider it so. 10% of respondents refused. Mobile devices on the dinner table is #5 on the list of "no, no's."
Other common house rules include watching your language (#6), especially if children are present. Remembering to flush the toilet came in at #3. The #1 house rule: Take you shoes off when entering the home.
