Just read this article

Wearing PJs in Tesco's should be banned because its offensive and making people feel uncomfortable, Ridiculous. Not sure about you but I generally don't find anything threatening or to be worried about by people in PJs? I cant see that its indecent either; I doubt people are parading down the isles in skimpy Lingerie this time of year. Even if they were there is nothing wrong with the human body. This isn't Calvinist Geneva or Taliban controlled Kandahar. Some people are offended by or feel uneasy around Goths, Clowns, Women in niqab or burka, Transsexuals, people in football shirts etc. It doesn't mean that their personal hang ups should restrict other peoples freedom of dress. People are so easily offended these days.

Anyone else offended by people in PJs in Tesco?

It's pretty gross.

AmberStClare Thu 05-Jan-17 18:12:24

It's all about standards dear

miserablesod Thu 05-Jan-17 18:13:34

Its a bit chavvy imo. Takes minutes to get dressed.

statetrooperstacey Thu 05-Jan-17 18:15:06

Yes it's horrible , lazy scruffy dirty trampy fuckers, zero self respect and often zero underwear.

SetPhasersTaeMalkie Thu 05-Jan-17 18:15:38

I'm not offended. I just don't understand it. Why not get dressed?

I'm not offended by it but I judge it massively.

And the people who wear them are generally the type of people who make me feel uncomfortable; rough and intimidating.

This debate has been raging for years ...

I love my PJ's. I put them on as soon as I know I don't need to go out again. I cannot see any reason for wearing nightclothes to Tesco tbh! Why not wear outdoor clothes outdoors and PJ's indoors? Why is that a problem?

statetrooperstacey Thu 05-Jan-17 18:17:56

Although what's worse is topless men, big saggy pasty sweat dripping bastards, nipples inches from the salad bar, horrible

I wouldn't dare go shopping in my pj's. I may run out to catch the bin men on mornings I have forgot to put the bin out but that is the furthest I would dare to go. It's absolute laziness and there is no excuse

CurlyWurlyCatcher Thu 05-Jan-17 18:18:14

I'm not offended by it, because it's really not offensive - but equally I don't understand it, my mornings are always a mad rush, we have to leave dead early with little time for getting myself ready, yet I have never been in such a rush that I am unable to throw on a pair of jeans and a jumper/tshirt etc.
Sure, I don't look wonderful but I look presentable. It takes 2 minutes, surely?

I don't even like answering the door in my pyjamas, let alone going out in public!

The problem with pyjamas is that there's no way of telling if they're the same ones that have been slept in (which I find a bit gross) or whether they're clean, worn with normal underwear and so basically just alternative clothing (not gross, although I still personally wouldn't do it).

There is no excuse, however, for going to the supermarket in a dressing gown. Wear a coat, jumper or cardigan.

I agree it's pretty rank. And lazy. Why can't people just shove on a pair of jeans and a proper pair of shoes? That would be better although the ideal is clearly to shower and dress. I even saw someone in her slippers once, weird.

maddiemookins16mum Thu 05-Jan-17 18:20:13

It woudn't ruin my life but it's as common as muck and unnecessary.

AmeliaJack Thu 05-Jan-17 18:20:57

I find it bewildering that people shop in their PJs but I have recently learned from MN that some people also consider it acceptable to host a
party in their PJs at which point I was just terribly relieved not to be invited to those kind of parties. wink

twilightcafe Thu 05-Jan-17 18:21:24

It's laziness. How hard can it be to pull on a pair of jeans or joggers before going out in public?

madein1995 Thu 05-Jan-17 18:21:37

Im on the fence. Om one hand, pj bottoms, trainers, hoodie, I would say nlt ideal but fine. No need to go round in bloody dressing gowns though

MagicMarkers Thu 05-Jan-17 18:21:40

OP - I guess you wear PJs to the supermarket. I'm not offended by it exactly, but I do think it's slovenly, lazy and downmarket.

I don't know anyone who does it and I don't live in the sort of area where this happens so it's not something that bothers me on a day to day basis.

Katy07 Thu 05-Jan-17 18:21:58

Not remotely offended but I'll put my hand up to mentally labelling them as lazy chavs. I thought my neighbour was bad driving her kids to school without bothering to get dressed (what message does that give them?) but actually going to the supermarket without putting daytime clothes on?! I could (just about) understand if it was 5 mins to closing and you needed a particular ingredient to make something that had to be made before the shops next opened but anything else...

I saw a girl in Asda schlepping along in fluffy slippers, dirty pink pyjamas and an open dressing gown and yes, I judged her massively. She looked like she'd spent the whole day in her pyjamas from the night before and then had to pop out for some shopping.

HolidaySpiritsReinbeerAndWhine Thu 05-Jan-17 18:22:51

It's ridiculous, as long as someone is dressed, who cares? I live near a 24/7 supermarket that often has students walking around in pjs (the student halls nearby are known for its fire alarms being pulled by drunks, so often have to evacuate in whatever they are wearing- do not blame them wandering the aisle in their dressing gowns!). I find half naked, sweaty bastards in summer far grosser and unappealing to the eyes - from topless blokes right down to women in ugly open-toe shoes/flip flops. Yuck. It doesn't take much to put on a shirt/wear proper shoes.

AgentProvocateur Thu 05-Jan-17 18:24:45

I'm not offended - I just think they're lazy skanks (and probably smelly too)

bloodyteenagers Thu 05-Jan-17 18:26:30

Lazy and no need. It screams of I have just
Rolled out of bed and not bothered to have a wash, brush my hair or teeth.

ShelaghTurner Thu 05-Jan-17 18:27:09

Not offended in any way. But like others I think it's pretty manky and lazy. Throw on a hoody and some trainers and pj bottoms are ok if you must but the whole slippers and dressing gown thing is really skanky. Do whatever you please but I'll enjoy a bit of a judge if I see you wink
