my girlfriend looks down on people that go to the store in pajama pants, but claims that going in sweatpants is okay. despite the fact that she only owns sweatpants for use as pajama pants. thoughts?

I’ll go to the gas station in whatever I have on at the time. A normal retail store though, I’ll change out of my “laze-around-the-house gear.”

Are PJs and sweat pants any different with regards to going to the store? Nope, your gf is crazy.

I routinely go to the gym on tights and just go anywhere with them.

my junk is showing. i dont care.
I see this as okay, i imagine people who work out when i say sweatpants are okay (even though i don't work out). There is a reason to potentially wear sweatpants out in public, however i dont go out and about to find a bed to sleep in so why where pajamas? It's really a statement on that person's character in my opinion.

I dunno. I guess I'm more of a traditionalist. Gym pants, okay. Sweat pants, okay. Yoga pants, okay. Pajama bottoms, not okay.

As to why? Dunno. Prolly the goofy and mickey mouse that's usually splattered all over the bottom of them. Seeing that on an eight year old is fine. Seeing that on an overweight fifty year old, isn't. "I like Mickey [email protected]" "Wow, do you like eating paste, too?"

Actually, on second thought, I better not ask that of anybody at WalMart.

Then you must be wearing pants 4 sizes too small.

I'd only equate sweats to pj pants if they're nasty stained gross sweats. Clean pair then no biggie. PJ pants are ok after 8pm in my book. Unless you're deathly sick making a run for cough drops before that you're just fucking lazy.

the instance that we were discussing and she looked down on was 10PM
I put jeans over my pjs despite being 10pm. Had it been a single person fine maybe but it was a couple and the guy had muck boots on. You're gonna lounge in pjs stuffed in muck boots? This is a farming area so they probably get used as intended regularly.
