    Wearing pajamas in public

    Over the past few years I see a growing number of people wearing pajamas in public. At first I thought they were just a few stray idiots, but now I think the idiocy bug has spread and they are everywhere. Coupled with my now being in my 50's and steadily heading toward old-mean-man syndrome a la Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino, this situation has become a thorn in my side. So while I still have an ounce of open-mindedness left in my noggin, I need to know some things.

    Do you just wear the same pajamas that you slept in, or do you put on fresh pajamas when you go out? Today I saw a young couple sporting the same pajamas at the mall...is that acceptable? And do the pajamas have to be the long-legged flannel type? I sleep in boxers and nothing else, but I'm not sure if walking around public in my boxers with no shirt is allowable. Unfortunately my physique is not like Jason Momoa's, so there's that.

    We are creatures of habit. I don't think my Mom allowed me to wear jeans to skool till I was in my teens, and even then, she insisted on IRONING A CREASE in the legs!!!! THE HORROR THE HORROR

    First and foremost: get off my lawn!

    Now that's of the way...

    Wearing pajamas in public gets under my skin, too. It seems that all this pot smoking, free thinking and being super casual has made a segment of society truly give up on their appearance. They just want to convey to the world they just don't care.

    Who cares about this battle when the war has been lost?

    The war was lost when people started wearing sweats in public as casual clothes.

    Why would anybody wear pajamas let alone in public. Do they make "cargo" pajamas? or pajamas with a "tech" pocket?

    The pajamas match their knitted pink vajay-jay hats.

    Yep, and most of those look like the last time they exercised was in high school "gym class".

    Hell, when I started school, we weren't allowed to wear jeans to school, nor were sneakers ("tennies") allowed, except for gym class. Also, girls were not allowed to wear pants ('scuse me: "slacks") to school.
    This was in northern Wisconsin, where the winter temps were regularly below zero. The girls would wear their snow pants (over knitted hose, what we called "leggings", but that means something else now) to school under their skirts, then take the pants off and stash them in their cubbies.

    It's a slippery slope.

    Sweats, then yoga pants, then pajamas.

    So at what point does that slope stop slipping? After pajamas comes complete nudity, followed by public sex. Then we’re on the verge of another Caligula kind of situation and then our society ends. Should take about 10 years based on the numbers I have crunched.

    I'm old enough to remember the day my high school revoked the ban on wearing sneakers outside of gym class!

    BTW, do any of them wear the old-fashioned 'onesie' with the rear flap and buttons?

    It was NWA who bridged that gap. They originally titled their 1988 rap hit "Disregard the Constabulary" but their producer convinced them to change it to "F___ the Police". The rest is music history.
