PYJAMAS IN PUBLIC … I mentioned this on Facebook yesterday, and got a bit of reaction, but I’m still looking for your opinions on people wearing pyjamas in public places. I see it more often than ever, and most of the time it’s someone who just looks like a slob. I’d have no problem if it was a hottie in lingerie, but I think it just makes a person look f*cking lazy!
