I was thinking about this today as I saw the thread with another "people of walmart"

Say you were out on a bag lady or lad day....

And you caught some numb nuts snapping your picture....
What would you do?

And

If I am willing to go out looking like that I am guessing it wouldn't bother me to have my pic taken.

I don't really dress "skaggy" even on a night out so I would not be embarassed if someone took a picture of me - but I would feel a violation of privacy and think that person is REALLY creepy. I would probably confront them too - although it's not illegal to take a picture of someone in public, it is illegal to publish those photos without the person's permission if the person in the picture is recognizable (hence why you sometimes see people's faces blurred out or their eyes blacked out) and the person or event is not considered "newsworthy" (hence why photos of celebrities can be printed without their permission).

I go out all the time without makeup and fine threads, but I'm always clean and color coordinated. I don't think I would care if someone took my pic, although if they specifically snapped a pic of me and it was obvious, I'd probably want to know who they ate and why they are taking my pic and I'd either make a loud ruckus and get the cops involved or I'd bust a cap in his or her ass right there on the spot.

No matter how bad my day is... I'll never go to Wal-mart with my female parts hanging out from underneath a "dress" or "skirt" or "shorts". Nor will I be there in just my underwear or bikini/bathing suit.

There's no excuse for certain attire.

Seriously, I think the worst I've ever dressed inside Wal-mart was to dress in cosplay. ((It woulda taken forever to get changed, so we just walked from the convention over there as-is))

But if somebody found my attire weird enough to take a picture, I'd shrug it off. If I saw it on People of Wal-mart, it'd hurt me none.

I've certainly gone to walmart looking pretty skanky, at least my idea of skanky. I had to run in yesterday in sweats, coughing and sneezing, red nose, blotchy skin, no makeup - really didn't feel like it. I am sure I wasn't a pretty sight, but I was sick and needed some meds and tissues, that is all I got. But I was clean and matching and nothing was hanging out, oh and my hair was brushed and up.

But I dont think i was anywhere near as bad as most of the people they show on that website!

I've never dressed remotely near as bad as the creatures on People of Walmart so no worries. Heck, after looking at those pics I feel like a super model even on a bad hair day.

Let's just say in my neighborhood if you walk out wearing a polo shirt you're dressed up. So as long as I'm neat and clean- everythings fine!

Not even on my worst day would I appear as a bag lady in public. If I did, like the other poster said, I'd deserve to have my picture posted on such a site.
