A little too causal dining

ice in the past couple of months I have been in restaraunts where I have seen diners remove their shoes. At the first place, I didn't even realize it until I heard the manager asking her to put them back on, but yesterday I was at a busy coffee shop/deli, as we were waiting outside for our name ot be called and two ladies (mother and grown-daughter???) rollerbladed up, took off their skates and went inside in stockinged feet. (white socks actually).

As luck would have it they were seated right across from us and dined in their socks with their skates on the floor at their side. I asked the waitress about it and she simply shrugged and said that "they do it all the time."

I saw the manager on the way out and he laughed and said "Hey it's Los Angeles". I asked if there was health code violation, and he said no since they were diners and not employees and then added he thought "it is actually kind of cute".

My husband and friends think it is no big deal, people are just acting like they would at home. Obviously I disagree.

I am just wondering what everyone else thinks, am I a bit oversensitive, or should I walk out if I see this again?
