Pajamas in Public…Just Say No!


I recently wrote about my travels to Kauai and how I disliked the airline system.  Upon talking with my FAA friend today, he mentioned that I had totally forgotten to mention how much I hate passengers who wear their pajamas while traveling.  Mind you, it isn’t just airline travel I see this trend happening in.  I also notice it in the grocery stores, at gas stations, and even at my kids’ school (most often parents being the offenders).pajamas in public2.jpg

It floors me to see grown ups wearing Hello Kitty pajamas at 3:20 pm in the afternoon.  For example, I was walking my daughter home with her friends and two adults were putting something in their car wearing their pajama bottoms like khaki slacks.  It is 3:20 in the afternoon and I have to see your Hello Kitty pajamas?  How old are you? Three years old?

Getting back to the air travel pajama problem, I really don’t think that as an adult I need to see your pajamas.  The only acceptable people that are allowed to wear pajamas on an airline flight are children under the age of 5.  If the kids are in Kindergarten, I’ll cut them some slack.  However, first grade and above, you need to put on your “big boy” pants and act respectful.  Heck, the next thing we’ll see is teenagers wearing diapers and pooping their pants on a cross country flight.  How would you like to sit next to that mess on a five hour flight?

So grown up and stop wearing your pajamas around like they are a pair of jeans.  Society made sweatpants so you could wear pajama style clothes in public.  Sweatpants are marginal more acceptable to wear in public.  You really should wear sweatpants when you are working out at the gym or jogging in the park.

Places I don’t want to see you wearing your pajamas:

At my kids’ school

Grocery stores

Gas stations

Post Office

Shopping malls

7-11

Liquor stores

Pizza parlors (really any kind of restaurants)

Again: Grow up, wear some jeans, some khaki slacks, or even a kilt or skirt.  Leave the pajamas at home so I can keep my lunch down.  Just give me one day where I don’t get grossed out by your lack of compassion to my sensitive stomach.pajamas in public

    Yup. I also loathe joggers, as we call sweat pants here. I refuse to let my son wear his in public. He only has any at all because Other People gave them to him!

    KH—This is hilarious! What a great way to start the day :)! I live in a city where there is gambling and needless to say, it is a 24-hour lifestyle and pjs are everywhere! With so many clothing options, pjs in public show a sheer lack of effort and a very easy way to identify the slackers in society…hee hee! I am a rebel and I refuse to submit to the pajama-culture! United we stand!

    The headteacher of a primary school in the UK made headline news early this year when she sent a circular out to parents to stop picking up and dropping their children off in pyjamas. Your post just reminded me of the debate that went up and down the country to distract us from more pressing concerns both globally and nationally 😀

    It’s even worse when they pair them with their Ugg boots. My question is do they change into their clothes when they go to bed?
