Default Getting older

SO I have been finding my pet peeves are the same as my father. My biggest one is seeing people in public setting with pajama pants. Really walking around town with polka dot pants. come on get a real pair of pants. Sweat pants if you need the extra airy comfort.
To me it just shows no ambition no wanting to do anything productive. I mean yes it'* a Sunday at 1 pm nothing to do but I think it is just a reflection on what you think of yourself. Make it look like you made an effort to get ready for the day not just roll out of bed and here is how I'm going to present myself to the world. Make it look like your day means something.

I don't know if this is the end of me, am I just turning into a cranky old man at the age of 24 or do I have something tangible here.

I got ten years on you and feel the same way. The way some people dress these days!!

Then of course you have the people that wear "nice" outfits, but you'd think the federal government would require you to have a permit to wear them. ie the large people. You know, outfits that a small girl would wear?

ya I agree on both. It'* not that difficult to change your clothes before going out in public..that is just beyond lazy if you can't.

Also, if you have a gut/fat/rolls popping out of your clothes that you think wearing make you look "sexy"....you are NOT sexy and you should not be wearing them...sometimes I wonder if those people are blind and don't know how horrible they look.

I'm even older, and you know what? I don't even care anymore.

The worst is going to class where people just wear sweatpants. Don't you have any respect for the teacher/professor/school? And I'm 22

Such is life. At first different things make you think either "funny or ok cause itz different". Then the, 'why do they have to be so different/stupid looking stage' kicks in. Finally it happens. You don't care anymore. Partially because you've seen it all and know your not going to make a difference. Mostly because your too busy wondering what you had for lunch and where the hell did you leave your teeth.

at the ripe age of 22, i hate pretty much everything...

so i'm biased, but yes, pajamas in public if you're over the age of 5 is atrocious.
