DH saw three people in town in onsies today. What is going on? I can only deduce that I'm getting old..

Aaah, I've not seen a man sporting one in public yet! thank God

Saw a pre-teen girl in one in Sainsbury's today. Yes, I felt a bit judgey. But then I remembered how much I hated being dragged around supermarkets as a child and thought good on her.

Omg. Now I want to buy a special going out indie a pointlessly expensive lipstick and go on a super duper awesome onesie adventure in Asda.

I would say that people who spend 90% of disposable income on personal grooming and clothes are even bigger twats than the ones who wear romper suits. What incredibly dull people they must be.*

Phew! I don't know. I am unwilling to write off large swathes of the local population as twats because of either the scumminess or blinginess of their clothes. I don't think they're dull, in all honesty. Mind you, it might be the case that onesie-shopping is the most super-duper exciting adrenaline-packed thrilling adventure under the sun and all of us who haven't experienced it are dullards. I wouldn't know. smile

Funnily grin . Now if overweight, middle aged and hetero women are your thing then you are in luck! wink

normaleggy Sat 04-Jan-14 10:15:05

JakeBullet Sat 04-Jan-14 10:07:37

Norma, I think I love you grin

You say exactly what I think, my house is a onesie free zone.

I don't have a cause, just an

HoneyDragon Sat 04-Jan-14 10:02:24


Now I just want to go out in a a Onsie and buy lipsticks. You are not furthering your cause. grin

Indoors fine. Outdoors they give me the shudders. I know it's gross but I cant help but thinking skanky genitals. I imagine the men with it all hanging loose and all of them men and women unwashed, hate it, but I can get a bit OCD. Would feel the same about people shopping in their pyjamas though.

HoneyDragon Sat 04-Jan-14 09:54:59

Now stop wasting shop floor space on these fancy dress costumes and put proper clothes back please

No. But I did appreciate the please.

How do you know that the person in the onesie doesn't spend 90% of her income on grooming and clothes and just has different tastes to you and chooses to buy onesies.

normaleggy Sat 04-Jan-14 09:43:59


I also spend a lot of time dealing with the big stuff, but thank you for so patronisingly assuming that I don't. Therefore I like to let off a bit of steam sometimes about the less important things in life. I'm not mocking people for the normal clothes they wear, in that respect I couldn't care less what they wear, but romper suits are worn for a reaction, they are not a normal item of clothing so I think if you wear one in public, you are inviting comment.

IneedAsockamnesty Sat 04-Jan-14 09:36:03


I spend shed loads of time dealing with the big stuff and tend to reserve such strong feelings for those and find being able to switch off when I get home rather more effective than taking the piss out of others for nothing other than their clothing choices.

Was your post intended to be funny? Comedy I enjoy lots but the only comic value in people getting wound up by other people wearing clothes is down to just how silly the ones doing the piss taking sound if you can ignore the very unpleasant inaccurate superiority issues,actually scrap the ignore bit because that does add to it.

dashoflime Sat 04-Jan-14 09:22:44

If it was the corner shop I'd say they were lazy


Since its in the Town- It must be fashion and we are all getting old

snakeandpygmy Sat 04-Jan-14 09:21:27

Not sure what is so traumatising about a naked body, nor why it would be so much worse in England. Now, if you were going boggle eyed about nudity because of the cold then I could understand it, though given a certain natural propensity for shrinkage when it's a bit chilly you'd have a bit less to go boggle eyed about smile

normaleggy Sat 04-Jan-14 09:15:27

sock don't be silly, it's sweating the small stuff that makes us able to deal with the bigger stuff properly. Don't ever go and watch a comedian will you...

normaleggy Sat 04-Jan-14 09:13:55

I detest them, ridiculous items which people only wear because they want to follow the crowd. I have repetitive strain injury from having to use the hide button on Facebook this Christmas due to all the fucking twats posting pictures of themselves in their fucking romper suits, thinking they are hilarious and quirky, when they just look like George Dawes only not as funny. 'I wear on because it's so warm'. Bollocks. Pyjamas are warm, jumpers are warm, dressing gowns are warm, nobody ever complained about those things being cold, therefore it is just a fad to try and make yourself look a bit fun. Probably the same kind of people who tell other people that they are 'completely mad!!'. How is anything that you have to virtually remove to have a piss in any way warmer than something you don't?

Now stop wasting shop floor space on these fancy dress costumes and put proper clothes back please.

Using strongly insulting words about something so minor makes me wonder how excited you get when faced with a real issue.

90% blimey chavtastic

MissDuke Sat 04-Jan-14 08:55:44

Phew I am so glad that I don't live there then, as I have other priorities!

I don't like onesies and hope to never own one, but I struggle to understand why anyone would care about what someone ELSE wears :-/ Scummy?? Really????

themaltesefalcon Sat 04-Jan-14 08:45:36

All my grips and stays are firmly in place, thank you.

Glad I live somewhere where people spend 90% of their disposable income on personal grooming and clothes. The population is a lot more aesthetically pleasing. As a shallow person, I appreciate that.

themaltesefalcon Sat 04-Jan-14 08:43:43

Personally it wouldn't worry me if people walked around naked but I suspect I'd be in the minority on that one.

It depends where. In England, not a chance. No amount of money could ever compensate for the mental trauma.
