People don’t really go out in public like that… do they? O.o
I so rather them out in nice flannel pants and shirt rather then some on the nasty stuff I’ve seen. jeans that have never seen a washing machine and the like or seeing more skin then i’m comfy with.
I went to school with girls who would go in pajamas.
I work in a bakery. A guy came in one morning in his dressing gown. I have no idea if he had something on under it, I just really hope he did!
I’ve seen it, one was one I’d rather not remember too!
And of COURSE this is going to prompt people to ask you what it was.
Yes. They do. And they bring their children out with them, same way.
Happens plenty around my college’s campus. Though it’s usually just flannel PJ bottoms with a clean shirt thrown on top (at least, I assume the shirts are clean). Never seen the slippers, though.
I’ve done the “throw a jacket on over what I slept in before going out” thing before, when I had an errand I -needed- to run but I was feeling sick and just didn’t want to bother changing.
I’ve done it, too, when I’m having a really tough time mentally–going out wearing that kind of stuff makes me feel better, somehow. I wore that to my therapist once, lol. Joked that my mental health was about as together as my outfit, and I belonged in a Walmart.
Go to any WalMart, that’s the usual customer attire.
My mom’s neighbor calls those people “Walmartians.”
I’m fairly used to getting it; then again, I work in a coffee shop…however, I still get people who come in wearing a vest over a bear chest and point out that it is “Technically” a shirt, and therefore I cannot refuse them service. Not mention the weirdo in assless chaps (again inside the store), and lastly (not to mention my personal favorite), the dude who showed up at the drive-thru window, completely naked.
That vest thing is when you point to the sign that says, “We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.” Of course, then you have to explain to your boss why you told the man to get out.
It is so common in my city anymore that we don’t even blink anymore. Girls in the stripper outfits they work in, and the dude who was wearing his pants belted around his knees with no underwear. #thingsYouCan’tUnsee.
Laziness is unbelievable these days. Next thing you know, America will entirely be a nudist colony where people don’t put anything on after they shower.
…that is presuming they shower.
That might not be so bad, as long as you know where to hold your gaze.
Even stranger than PJs, I have seen people wearing Snuggies out in public. I don’t, what even, huh?
Seriously, I was raised to always wear actual clothes outdoors, even just to grab the paper or the mail. There is no bedclothes out of the house, and was barely tolerated much past waking up. And always were the correct clothing for whatever was planned for the day. Whatever your look is, it is your uniform; take pride in it.
“Everybody in this room is wearing a uniform and don’t kid yourself.” –Frank Zappa
And here I thought if someone were going to quote Zappa, it’d be from “Po-Jama People.”
A little too obvious, but if you insist:
I waited on a customer once who was wearing a Forever Lazy.
Seriously?! I love my Snuggie, but I can barely figure out how to walk around the house in it, much less drive!
Only once, I saw a PJ family come into the store. The mother was wearing mis-matched pajamas; black bottoms with pink flowers all over them, leather slippers, and a blue button-down PJ top. The daughter, about four years old, was wearing a nightie with a cartoon character and purple PJ pants and puppy slippers. The weirdest, though, was the dad. He was wearing Spiderman pajamas and snow boots. I don’t even know where he could have FOUND those PJ’s!
I used to do this on quick runs, though with pajama bottoms/sweatpants and sometimes non gaudy slippers only. I got myself out of that habit, thankfully.
I think the only times I will allow myself to wear sweatpants again is if I had to go to the ER or I’m going on a ridiculously long flight.
As a newspaper carrier, I wore sweatpants over my other three layers (long johns and two pairs of slacks) when it was friggin freezing and my other layers just weren’t enough. That (and when camping) was the ONLY time I wore the beasties.
I’ve thrown a jacket over my pajamas for a quick errand too, but I don’t get wearing slippers in public. That hurts my feet just to look at. I need my arch support!
Wow, a lot of uptight people commenting today.
Well, your opinion is your own and that’s fine, but I can’t care LESS what people wear. While I’ve never worn PJs out and about (mostly because, well, I don’t own any), I have no problem seeing customers at my store wear them.
What’s wrong with a little comfort? It’s ok to wear t-shirts and uncomfortable jeans (which cover all the parts that “need” covering in society), but it’s not ok to wear a more comfortable set of shirt and pants just because we wear them while sleeping? That sort of attitude has always been odd to me.
maybe since you are the only one commenting differently (although there are former pajama wearers here), we aren’t all the uptight ones, we’re average, and you are just loose?
Not insulting, but *everyone but you* is average, not odd.
Sorry, it’s not everyone but him.
Practicality over appearance. Form follows function. Etc.
i see people in PJ’s in the grocery store all the time…
When I lived in California in the early 60s, it was not uncommon to see women in the grocery stores wearing bikinis with their hair up in large pink rollers.
Now THERE’S a visual!
Best part is the guy holding the coffee cup as he strolls around the store. LOL!
Being a former 5-year Walmart employee, it wasn’t surprising to see those kinds of people stroll into the store in their pajamas, even when it was 4 or 5 in the afternoon! You want to wear pajamas around your house, that’s fine, but going out in public like that just shows how STUPID a person can be, as if they don’t have enough time in their day to put on a pair of jeans and a shirt. Ugh!
Its one thing to make a quick errand/feeling sick to go out in pjs. Its entirely different when you can’t be bothered to wash and you’re still in your pjs at 4:00pm and you go out shopping. I don’t know how people do it in slippers either. There are plenty of comfortable clothes that one can wear.
I once saw a lady come into a fabric store wearing a house-dress made of two purple bath towels seamed up at the sides and shoulders, and belted with a cord… I didn’t know whether to be more confused or saddened…
There has been a time or two when I don’t want to get fully dressed to go run a quick errand, but I’ll at least pull real pants on over my pj flannels…
I was never a pj out of the house person (unless you count the drive in or before I was 9), but I was a jeans and baggy shirt person.
I have switched over to skirts and nice tops, and I feel better and look better, and get a lot of compliments. I did it because I saw a skirt in a catalog that was *so me* and sighed that I never wore skirts any more (as a mom/housewife) and I realized it was my fault.
Maybe real people with a brain cell don’t want to see you wearing your PJs out in public? PJs *ARE NOT* to be worn in public. And yes, I’ve seen people wear them in Wal-Mart. First time I saw people doing it I almost barfed!
Some people care WAY too much what other people are doing.
I see people walking around in nightgowns all the time where I work. But then, I do work in a hospital…
Pajamas worn in public look ridiculous and lazy. Still, I prefer that to the saggy pants with the wearer’s backside sticking out any day!
I have seen people wearing pjs on a regular basis, at the grocery store that I work in. What really gets me during the dinner rush at the registers in the summertime, are all the customers who come in wearing nothing but swimsuits, flip flops, and little to no coverups! Really, people?
One of the big UK supermarkets banned PJs from their stores a couple of years ago
More coverage: Google “Tesco bans Pajamas”.
Of course, they were referring to sleepwear, not the similar ethnic outerwear favoured in parts of India, Pakistan etc, which is also sometimes called a pajama.
