    All people seen outside in pyjamas without there being a building on fire nearly, should be shot.

    Can I get a hell yea?

    I heard a girl on the radio saying it was more of a fashion culture but she sounded like she was 15, smoked 20 blue and had a two year old.

    I dunno, it’s taking the pyjamas off that gets a lot of them into trouble in the first place.

    Last summer during one of the regular monsoons I saw a fat girl in pyjamas standing out on the South Ring in Cork,looking like a drowned rat. She had just rear ended a van and written her car off.

    I would have loved to have seen the look on the member of staff’s face who was told to type that up. Hilarious

    Nothing wrong with wearing pyjamas. They’re only clothes. Never stopped the boomtown rats. SW stasi.

        In fairness for meetings such as the community officer game ball, but for general hackiness nay bother. I honestly don’t see the big deal.

    Well here’s a grand big yay for that particular Social Worker
    Damn right they should wear outerwear when looking for help with the ESB bills, n the communion, n the Christmas n what ever you’re having yourself…

      yep you’re dead right but it’s a hurrible one and its only worn in public in Ireland and Uk… it’s disgraceful. those who do not respect themselves wont be respected by the others

        No actually, you’re wrong there, I see it all the time in Bermuda, also in Boston in mid November I saw 2 girls in the snow in what were clearly not ‘outerwear’. rumor has it it started in Japan, though as a sign of wealth, anyone know about that?

      Since when is manners the preserve of that shower of backtracking spineless muppets.

      If an appointment is made for you to be met one to one with a community welfare officer, the public health Dr, the district nurse, or indeed anyone who has your interests to serve, the very least one should expect is the client gets out of their bed clothes.

      Manners. There is no excuse. From anyone.

        Frilly, I’m with you on good manners. But you don’t instill that via Government notices about what to wear, funny though this one is. I think it’s another example of nanny-statism. In fairness, if the Social Welfare had a problem with PJs, they or Fás could offer some tips and coaching on how to approach job opportunities via dress and manners where it can really impress. And yes, to be taken seriously I have dressed formally for an appointment or business meeting – always worth it to achieve your result from the authorities or to look professional. But that’s just me. What other people wear is their own business. I still talk to the person, not the clothes. I would if I were a Social Welfare Officer too. From my spell of unemployment, the officers I met with were mainly dressed in jeans and T-shirts. And some weren’t too big on manners themselves. Manners are entirely separate from apparel.

          Last year our local MP (*insert your own joke) put a notice up in the community office saying he would see no-one wearing a burka effectively cutting off 13% of his constituents from his office.

          Now he is an ineffective little tumbleweed but I thought, why not ban the clean shaven, the freckled, the black-haired, the jean-wearers too as soon as you realise they will want something for you…..

          Instant workload halving!

          You’ll never see a sign banning tight jeans on good looking men or bikini tops on women who look great in them……

    My Particular Bug-bear is people wearing tracksuits, when they are clearly (at time of wearing) not keeping fit or playing a sport…

    But then, I’m odd!

    This person should just put up a sign saying no clothes allowed, then they could not find anything to object to in the apparel of their clientele /sorted/

    I work from home.and sometimes I don’t take the pajamas off; sometimes I drop the kids to school wearing a coat or jumper OVER the pajama’s; I I have to go into the school I would put on street clothes, but sometimes I would just put a skirt on over the pajamas …. If time is short.
    Pajama’s are comfortable.
    I couldn’t do the Pajama’s dressing gown combo I see some people doing, out in the shops etc.
    I would NEVER be able to wear pajama’s into a Dole office – I would be worried about people sniggering at me; If I had to go in there, I would dress quite blandly; although thinking about it, previous experience has shown me that if you want to get loads of money, turn up in a BMW with your kids wearing expensive runners and sportswear, use an expensive phone in the waiting room, have an expensive hairstyle, sport a foreign or ethnic accent, and if female, wear clothes that though expensive, are a few sizes too small…But I couldn’t do that either… (and don’t have a BMW)
