If you've been to Walmart recently, you've likely seen this:
Perfectly normal people, wandering around in broad daylight in pajama bottoms. Okay, some aren't so normal...
It isn't just Walmart. I've seen them at the mall, in restaurants, and at the movies. Apparently at some point someone decided that as long as you paired them with a T-shirt, you could wear pajama bottoms anywhere.
My husband once asked a convenience store employee if he was wearing pajama bottoms. The guy said, "No, man. These aren't pajama pants. They're house pants."
I was curious, so I looked up these house pants. They look like this:
They're defined as pants you wear around the house. In other words, pajama bottoms. Apparently if you call them house pants, though, you're allowed to wear them in public.
So the next time you see someone in Walmart wearing pajama bottoms, remember...those aren't pajama bottoms. They're house pants.
Would you ever wear pajama bottoms in public?
