Maybe the pajama wearers do it just to tick off all the people who can't mind their own business!

You should dress nicely because you like to. You enjoy fashion. Some reason that serves YOU.

Not make up some stupid story about self-respect.
Yes, yes, self respect.

I couldn't care less what others think of me but I certainly wasn't raised in a hog house with pigs.either.

I mow my lawn and keep it neat .
To impress others?....NO

I don't want to live messy.

self respect.

Try it sometime

Usually when people are slobs, others say..............." if you think they're bad, you should have seen their parents"

Acorns ( and other nuts) don't fall far from the tree.

Many times those doing it are fat slobs who can't stand the feel of anything resembling a waistband around their pot belly.

I notice when people look good, and I notice when people look bad. I don't think I'm all that unusual.

As for myself, I figure that if I notice when other people look bad, some people may notice when I look bad too. It just doesn't take that much effort to brush my hair and put on something I haven't slept in. Oh, and brush my teeth.

You never know who you'll run into for that matter. There ARE people I'd rather not be around looking like I just rolled out of bed. But for that matter, being married and caring that my husband finds me attractive, I brush my hair and my teeth and wash my face and make an effort not to look like a bedheaded bum around him anyway - after I've had two cups of coffee (but I get up before him anyway so he rarely sees the bleary eyed, bedheaded me). And I appreciate when he does the same.
I agree on the "care" and "notice" difference. I couldn't care less what other people wear but sometimes you can't help but notice! lol I'm generally too busy to see much of anything not right under my nose so I don't notice a whole lot either, probably. I see that bed head thing a lot but figure it goes along with the piercings and tattoos. And done that way 'on purpose'.

When I go shopping I look about the same as when I go to work which is pretty darn casual really. I shop where I work and don't want my co-workers putting me up on People of Walmart! lol I've already been on there but not because of ME! Because of my customers though.

I have it.

But not bc my clothes are clean and pressed and my landscaping is gorgeous (both are true).

The ones I see are usually people with big belly's or kids in their early 20's.

Lack of pride definitely !

I have plenty of self respect and pride

What's the difference between wearing pj pants/yoga pants and jeggings to the store? They're both the same material, but one is considered 'trashy' and one is considered fine. I don't see why me wearing black yoga pants and a fleece jacket to walk half a block to the store to pick up some tortillas is such a pearl clutching event.

Mind your own business.

Is that how your parents raised you?
Did they send you to school in PJ's ?
