I live in a town, and was walking out at 8am to pick up some shopping, and while I have heard that some mums do this I’ve never actually seen it, but there in front of me three mums in full pjs walking along with their children quite happy, no coats, I felt overdressed I must admit!

Some people in pjs look better than some people in clothes.
As long as they are decent why does it matter?

You must have missed the family all in giraffe onesies in Sainsbury’s.
My PJs aren’t substantial enough, but as Spice101 says “As long as they are decent why does it matter?”

Where did I say it matters! No where in my post was I judging anyone!

I’m sorry but nothing will convince me that going out in nightclothes is decent.

Galaxy Fri 23-Sep-22 09:50:49

Oh I love a onesie.

No you weren’t, but mentioning anything unusual is risky nowadays.

Totally agree. I find it slovenly.

Me too.

I think it rather slovenly too but I don't care if other people want to be slovenly. Other people's slovenliness doesn't (or at least hasn't yet) caused me any discomfort.

Just checked the dictionary meaning of slovenliness and apparently it includes untidiness and dirtiness but I think those on this thread who mind about the PJ walkers possibly associate the habit with laziness more than anything unclean. Its Old Dutch and Low German meaning is slow/indolent apparently.

Love derivations 😀

I'll be happy to judge them It's slovenly and lazy, sets a bad example to their children and is an eyesore for everyone else. Why on earth can't they just put some clothes on, after all trousers and tops only takes 2 minutes to get into. Heaven forbid we would expect them to wash their faces or brush their hair and actually make an effort to meet the world. If they can't manage to get dressed in the morning how on earth will they manage to run a household, cook meals, supervise their children's homework, and do all the hundreds of other things a parent has to do.

Mentioning anything unusual is risky nowadays! Jeez! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 is it! And I thought this was a public forum!

Galaxy Fri 23-Sep-22 10:23:28

You have been warned about that Maw grin

Keeper1 Fri 23-Sep-22 10:23:47

We’re they wearing fluffy slippers? grin

I've seen mums picking their kids up from school in the afternoon still in PJs and dressing gowns, must have been in them all day! yuck 🤢

Went to our surgery this morning 7.30 to a an appointment and a woman turned up to join the queue in her nightie, a pair of trousers on underneath and a jacket over the top. She said she overslept and didn’t have time to dress properly. Loved it says me standing in the queque clutching a hot water bottle because it was a bit nippy this morning

eazybee Fri 23-Sep-22 10:31:29

Presumably if people are walking about in their pyjamas early in the morning they haven't washed. Not pleasant.

Callistemon21 Fri 23-Sep-22 10:34:49

It's nothing new!

Well, each to his own and all that, but I just couldn't do this.
It does seem lazy.

I could never do it, I like to shower and dress before I go out. I find it slovenly.

JaneJudge Fri 23-Sep-22 10:39:24

As an aside, do shoe zone sells Vans now?

My husband said I looked like I was wearing pyjamas the ther day. I had grey stripped jersey trousers on and grey vest confused

Teamed with the right handbag of course.

I’m sure I’ve hear of schools asking parents to please not do this.
However I dare say that the sort of people who habitually do it are unlikely to give a monkey’s about any pleas from head teachers.
