Wearing Pyjamas in Public
Is it now becoming commonplace in the UK for British women to go out without bothering to get washed or even dressed ?
I had a fairly shocking experience the other day and I photographed it . . .
A week of snow meant I’d not used my car for a week so I felt it needed a run. I took it down the Laceby Bypass and called in at Morrisons Supermarket - for hand-soap not food I hasten to add
I was simply staggered to see a woman walking round the supermarket at 11am on a Sunday wearing her pyjamas and a dressing gown
I have heard of this before but I’ve never actually witnessed it. Liverpool became famous a while ago when schools started banning mothers who turned up in nightwear to bring their kids to school. Also, a while ago there was a newspaper story of Tesco’s Supermarket banning people from their stores who wear still in pyjamas !!
I’ve done some cursory research and it looks like going out without dressing seems to be something women do a lot more than men.
It seems a lot of women take their kids to school without bothering to get washed or dressed and as we see her - go to the shops !
This truly staggers me, the decline in standards simply beggars belief - I mean, how long does it take to get dressed.
Clearly people are simply too idle to get washed and dressed in the morning, have they any pride at all - surely not !
It does seem to be the ultimate in Chav behaviour
I wonder how widespread this is ?
I don’t normally go to Morrisons (for those outside the UK it’s a lower to mid-level supermarket) so I don’t know whether this is something which happens a lot, I fear it might be as I appeared to be the only one staring aghast at the woman.
I’d be very interested to hear if anybody else has experienced people who go out in public in the pyjamas
I can honestly say I was shocked to see it - am I right to be shocked or is this just a fact of modern life in Britain now - is the photograph above an example of modern British Women !?
Yours in astonishment,
