I'm actually quite liberal and very much against guns. I also happen to think people who walk into grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, Walmart, etc. proudly and often even menacingly displaying their guns on holsters, etc. are quite kooky.

But what on earth does my stance on guns and gun control have to do with determining my opinion on wearing pajamas in public??

That's why is grosses me out so much.

It is apparent that the person has not bathed, or even brushed their dirty hair, AND they are wearing dirty slept-in pajamas instead of putting on clean clothes to interact in public.

I wonder if they keep wearing those pajamas and slippers when they get home, after dragging the bottoms of their pant legs through filthy garbage and vomit in the parking lot, and walking across the tile floors outside of public restrooms that are covered in a layer of urine and fecal contamination from people walking in and out of the cesspool restrooms. Nothing like jumping back into your bed sheets with slippers and pajama bottom legs covered in public filth contamination from 300 strange people.

There is a reason people are taught to bathe and wear clean clothes and shoes in public. It is called sanitation.

When I see people wearing wrinkled pajamas they sweated in, had sex in, slept in for days, and have not washed, I step away because they seem dirty and sweaty to me.

When I see someone in public wearing pajama bottoms my first thought is; Welfare Recipient.

I couldn't agree more. If you ask a person why, they'll probably say it's because they can.
Loose fitting bulky pj's can conceal bigger gunz. OMG.

pffft

I got called up for jury duty a couple of years ago. Knowing that I would be in a formal legal atmosphere, in the same room where a judge will sit, I wore slacks, a nice blouse and semi-dressy shoes. It wasn't on par with job interview clothing, but I was quite presentable.

I was seated in a row among people who had not shaved, looked as if they merely waved a brush over the top of their hair; some of them smelled. I suppose it might have been their tactic to try and not get picked? If so, they were clearly wrong. We were advised that the choice would be made by lottery.

What I wore must have been "bad luck clothes" because I was not only chosen to be a juror, I was picked to be on the grand jury for a term of a year. And when the judge saw me walk to the box where the chosen were told to sit, I knew my number must have been up. Seated among the unwashed masses, I saw her gimlet eye give me an appraising look and wasn't surprised when I was chosen to be the foreperson for the group

That does sound quite gross Worse that those might be the same clothes they pulled off the floor to put back on after having sex. Dammnnnn

You can't change people, only the way you react to them. The lowest common denominator is becoming more acceptable, IMO. I find myself paying little attention to people simply because showing that you have noticed behavior that you feel betrays a low class attitude will earn you a surly look or snarling remark - or worse. It's a matter of "hey, if they want to dress like they pulled clothes from the dirty basket, or rolled out of bed and walked out the door, not my problem."

One can only lodge a formal complaint if it affects them directly. In that instance, I have said something "Dude, we have to share a cubicle. You keep coming in here with those nasty flip-flops, me having to smell your dirty feet? We're going straight to HR if that doesn't stop."

At least if it's a boring movie, they are ready for a slumber party.

Who cares. you have to be a vain person to care what strangers think when you're picking up some milk. Unless you're trying to shag a person at the store, what is the point of making yourself up for that?
