Okay, first of all, they're remodeling my Wal-Mart and it's p---ing me off!!

Secondly, I know I spend too much time there, because today I spent five minutes directing traffic to the rearranged departments. One lady stopped and asked me, and when it became apparent that I should probably work there a line formed for directions. My four year old was dying of embarassment. He was totally doing the teenager eye-roll. Good thing the nine year old was at school. He would have melted into a pool of embarassed goo in the floor.

My kids and I have a game now to see who can spot the most people wearing pajamas when we're there. Gotta love Wally World!!

I have noticed that there do seem to be more than the typical number of people in their 'jammies' at WalMart.

I say "typical number" because, for some reason, teenage girls in my area wear their pajamas around town as a regular thing. (Flannel or knit sleep pants and a tank or t-shirt, not a nightgown.)

Is this just a Southern California trend, or is it common elsewhere?

No....It's everywhere! While we visited GA last year, they did it there! And they do it up here in AK too!

My parents would never have left me leave the house looking like that, period!

OP that is soo funny.

About the jammies, nope it's everywhere. I don't get it but at least it's not indecent. Rather see jammies than sagging pants. JMO

That's too funny.
People wear their jammies (sleep pants) here too. ...any time of the year.

yep, I tell people where to find things in walmart, too. I'm on a first name basis with ALL of the greeters and half of the cashiers. We've talked frequently about how I'd need no training if I ever got a job there! icon_lol.gif

FYI, I LOVE the new layout of the remodeled walmart! FINALLY someone figured out that when I'm doing weekly grocery shopping that I dont' WANT to walk all the way across the store to buy shampoo and deodorant in the pharmacy area! gggrrrrrrr!!!!!! icon_mad.gif

PJ's are quite popular up here in Canada too! Ours is being rebuilt now too..and I am WAY more excited than I should be about the new one. I find if I go later in the evening, that's when all the REAL interesting ones come out....

I made the mistake of wearing a blue sweater there a while ago, I swear 15 people stopped me to ask where things were. As I am pushing my buggy, trying to feed my toddler a cracker so he stops yelling and eating Mcd fries! Seriously!?! But I guess the really sad part of that story is that I can give all of them proper directions! And WHAT is with the people that are there at 10pm and have their little kids with them!?!

I've heard that walmart is remodeling across the board. From the numerous walmarts I've seen in this past week (try 4 different ones that are at most 3 hours away from other ones I go to). I also heard that it's supposed to bring more fresh ingredients to all the walmarts. While they won't be "super" wal marts, I've heard that they are all moving in that direction. I don't think they mentioned it as a public thing just b/c it'll probably close down more that a few more ma & pa type stores. Just an FYI!!!

And I will admit I am a pj'er. I just don't wear them as pj's. I wear them kinda as sweats. Can't find too many sweat pants that don't bunch up at the ankle, and for me, just not "cool" looking. And different "lounge" pants can be as personalized as a cool t-shirt. But it was something that I definately picked up as a teenager. ahh, to each their own I guess. And no, it isn't an everyday thing.
