    I don't really mind the pajama thing in public. Its weird, yeah. But what gets me going though is the slippers in public. I see that here a lot & it really grosses me out. Do you wear them back in bed & walk throughout your house with them on??? Just nasty.

    I think its from the people that do this: https://youtu.be/9Z-vdx_PcgU

    How about this?
    Acceptable in public?

    Please stop already.
    yeah, but I need to wear my kit when I ride my bike. But I also change into something that less 'skin on a grape' when i'm done.

    Pajamas never bothered me. Seats not level always have, though.

    I've seen some of this too. Just another example of "ugly 'Muricans." Pajamas in public and lace-less shoes tell the world you've given up.

    Hmmm. The last pajamas I owned was in 7th grade when our house caught fire and burned down. My mom made us kids get dressed and then get out of the house and move a safe distance from the fire. Slept in my underwear after that; then in college or when I got married I began sleeping naked and have for nearly 50 years now.

    So survey question: Do most people really sleep in pajamas? If so, why?

    ... one time at band camp...


    Started going without in college (quasi hippy cool back then) and only wear 'em (or underwear) when visiting friends and family.


    PJ's remind me of the double beds featured in film and TV even into the seventies.


    If I remember correctly, Pajama came from India and was prolly effective against biting insects to the Imperial Brits.

    So they can jump out of bed and run out the door to the sale Wallmart without wasting any time getting dressed.

    Haven't you been paying attention?

    I have a pair of Sorrel "slippers" that look kind of like that but have a rubber sole. I slip off my "house slippers" and put the Sorrels on to go to the mailbox, firewood pile, and sometimes for quick in-and-out trips to the store. They're comfortable and more convenient than lace up shoes.

    I think of them as winter time flip-flops.

    I have been instructed to shoot my husband the day he decides pajamas in public is a good idea. He doesn't seem to be joking.

    The difference between pajamas vs jeans, sneakers, slacks, lycra etc. is that pajamas are meant for the bed. It's off-putting the way scrubs in public is weird- scrubs are supposed to be sanitary.

    I've authorized my wife to shoot me if I start wearing sweatpants out and about.

    I work out of my house now, and it's easy to get into the sweatpants all day routine. I feel like a bit of a pajama-schlub if I leave the house in sweatpants.

    I know this feeling and my day-to-day life is actually making it worse. Most weekdays are the same for me...wake up, walk my dogs in the woods, spend some time with my wife & son, ride a bike to work solo, work in my own office all day, mainly on the phone or via email. Talk to 2-3 other people in my office, ride my bike home, dinner with wife/son...walk my dogs in the woods solo, read then rest.

    Weekends about the same, minus the commute to work & work. We'll go out to group dinners at a friend's house, go on hikes or walks, dinner with extended family sometimes.

    I'm really, really isolated from the world & almost completely control my environment at most times. (Yeah, I'm not in a cabin in the woods, but I have a lot of control and don't interact with strangers all the often.) I like my life and am happy...but when I get around the general masses...I'm usually overwhelmed with the crassness, the rudeness, the lack of self-respect...I acknowledge this, but I feel myself growing less and less able to be around all the common nutjobs out in public.

    I honestly have considered seeking therapy for this. I'm still in my 30s! I don't have a fear of being in public, I just have less and less patience for dopey humans.

    The same thing I wear on Casual Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, which is similar to what I wear when I'm chillaxing on Saturday and Sunday.

    ...and what about these women running around in public with yoga pants on? I work in a college town, and there's nothing worse than seeing all of these young ladies running around showing off their camel toes (or moose knuckles). I wish this trend would end and right quick. I'd post pics, but a simple Google search will show you what I mean without me having to stare at the horror again.
