The Great Pajama Debate
A British grocery store is in the center of one of the hottest debate of 2017: is it appropriate to shop while wearing pajamas? Tesco found themselves the focus of this crucial topic when a a man shared a picture he'd taken of two women in their store, merrily pushing shopping carts while wearing pajamas and bathrobes to the company's Facebook page. Along with the picture he wrote, quote:
Dear Tesco, please can you put a rule in place that people like this will not be served in your stores. It's bloody disgusting. I mean who doesn't have the time to get changed into clothes to go shopping?
As you can imagine, the internet went insane over this. Some supported the man's complaint, while others weren't so bothered by the perceived fashion faux pas. But this begs the question... is it appropriate to wear pajamas to the store? What constitutes "pajamas"? When would you let PJs pass?
Personally, I don't really see a problem with someone making a quick trip to Walgreens in their sweatpants. I figure there's got to be a bit of a fire they're putting out at home; sick child, and you want to get them feeling better ASAP, or you're halfway through cooking a meal when you realize you are out of milk. Fine. Run in, run out. But I really don't understand the extended pajama-wearing shopping adventure. If you have more than one item on your list, put some pants on.
