Door Mat Psychology

In my real world job, I see a LOT of houses.  Different houses everyday and with that, I get to see all kinds of door mats.  Did you know that the type of door mat you display at the entrance to your home tells the world the type of person you are?

True it is…and I have compiled unscientific data on door mat to human personas
and this is what I have come up with….

  1. How come there is not a picture of your Christmas “Bah Humbug” door mat? I don’t know if that fits into the practical joker theme though…….

  2. BA HA HA! I used to have that “Nice Underwear” mat. My favorite (I had two of these over the years) “Hi. I’m Mat.” My current one says, “The Dog, Day 751: My captors continue to torment me with bizarre rubber squeak toys. They eat lavish meals in my presence while I am forced to subsist on dry cereal. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of eventual escape… that, and the satisfaction I get from occasionally ruining some piece of furniture. I fear I may be going insane. ”

    I like to warn people what to expect in Ma’s house 🙂

  3. ROFL….. I wish you could see my doormat. It’s about 5 feet long and probably 3 feet wide giving any visitor a long run at shoe cleaning. And, once inside, I STILL may ask you to take your shoes off. I’d love it if it the words “Wipe You Stinkin’ Shoes” were panted on it. But I’ve been told the size of my mat says it all. Hehehe
