    Default Pyjama Women

    A headmaster in Belfast has ordered mothers not to drop their children off at school dressed only in their pyjamas. Good to see that these slovenly cows are not exclusive to Liverpool then!

    I know my mother and grandmother used to be appalled by Liverpool missuses who would go out in their curlers. Do you still see that around the city???

    I'm afraid standards have slipped since the days of Hilda Ogden who at least got dressed. Todays breed of chavettes go out in their night gear.

    A woman that used to get on my bus to work always wore smart tops and her pink PJ's bottoms. To think that she's slept in em all night and then she's got em on all day too......

    there are quite a few women who take their kids to my daughters school who come just in their PJs
    some of them even change their pjs during the day & arrive at 3pm wearing a different pairdon't know why they don't change into clean clothes
    If you can't dazzle them with brilliance,baffle them with bull

    I believe most of the women who ventured out of their homes in curlers were working mothers. These women usually had a full time job in a factory or bag warehouse some place and a family to feed at home which left them with very time to devote to themselves. They also had very little, if any, disposable income and could not afford the services of a hair dresser, unlike most middle and upper income women. These same working class women could not afford nylon stockings and so opted for the cheap alternative, leg tan. The jewelry and perfume (evening in Paris) they wore was usually Woolworth bought, except for a wedding ring and perhaps a sovereign or half sovereign passed down from mother to daughter. Their clothes were poor, well worn and many times repaired and, fashion wise, all to often years out of date. If they were lucky enough to have a husband who "went away to sea" they might, just might, upon his return from a long voyage, get a bottle of Channel #5 which they would cherrish and, when the bottle was empty, painstakingly refill it with distilled water and eventually leave the empty, rinsed, bottle in their drawer with their "smalls".

    I know this because my late mother was one of those working class women, a lady in every sense of the word.

    Whats the big deal?

    Most women who go out In their pyjamas are only going to somewhere like Tesco anyway. Why get dressed enough to go to somewhere like Tesco?

    I've left my Pyjama top on sometimes when going out but I throw on normal pants.

    I never see the fuss In clothes anyway though, I only wear track pants and a t-shirt mostly because I prefer comfort over appearance. I hate shirts and jeans because I struggle to fit In them and sweat shows more In shirts.

    I hate suits too and I'd only ever wear a suit for something like a funeral or a wedding out of respect. I'd have to go to that high and mighty shop In town for one!

    I remember when was a kid,we had nothing to talk about.
    But my granmother,had these hats in round boxes,she
    always wore one when she went out.What she didn"t
    know,was i used to borrow them,take the feathers out
    and make a cowboy hat,so i could look the part playing
    with my mates,she never caught me,God rest her.

    I remember my mam cleaning the windows and my brother came in with a monkey on a stick, when she asked him where he got it from, he told her the rag man gave it to him. He had taken the curtains she had just taken down and swapped it for the toy. My man dragged him by the scruff of the neck around quite a few streets following the rag man, she got her curtains back and gave the ragman a load of verbal abuse, we laugh about this now, the poor man wasn't to know they were her best curtains.

    I'm just an ordinary mum - and I'm not perfect - but I get up an hour before my kids every morning to get myself ready first - hair, make up and clothes - before dropping the youngest off at my mum's on workdays or before I see her to the school gate on the days I don't work. I maintain my standards as an example to my children of how they should conduct themselves. couldn't face the world if my hair and make up wasn't done and properly dressed - I might frighten the horses!!!!!

    I seen one woman in as*a the other day in her PJs.......kipper full of makeup, you could smell the perfume, BUT, you could tell she had slept in the PJs because they had creases in where they would have rolled up in bed, and the cheeky mare was looking other women up and down..
    And the lads doing that...................hope they fall off

    Why are we bothered about other peoples appearances?

    **** them, It's upto them If they stink or not, there not really bothering anyone because of the way there dressed.

    We are all aware, those born in the 1970 or before (mostly ) how society has declined and this is just another example.
    It's onlty declined In their minds because some of them refuse or can't keep up with Modern times. The People before them probably spouted the same stuff.

    Mondays and Tuesdays in the post office .. to be avoided because there is often a pong in there after the long queues out to the door all morning (are they pay out days or something ?) - not just me saying this - it has been noted by other neighbours. There is a definate aroma.

    the pyjama gang, the alchies and smackheads all emerge to queue up - then they disappear until the next time.
