    Default A few questions...

    Ok, I have a few questions I don't really feel comfortable talking about, and I would love to get bubhubs opinion

    DP and I are pretty close with our friends and we often all go down the street to McDonald's or woolworths, nowhere fancy, just picking up some milk or dinner or whatever. Now, I think it is perfectly acceptable to make these trips in a pair of (respectable) trackies and a t shirt. However, my DP and a few of my friend tend to spend ten minutes dressing 'nicely' (jeans, nice top and a nice jacket if it's cold), doing their hair and putting a bit of make up on. Not overdone, but a bit OTT in my opinion for a maccas run. Sometimes I'll get in the car and one of them will ask 'oh, is that what youre wearing?'.
    I have never had a problem with it, but I'm starting to get a bit paranoid. Am I a slob?

    And a quicker one, my housemate an DP work at the same place. Our housemate recently or promoted over DP and it's causing a little tension. DP swears that it's fine, but there's an undercurrent of tension whenever work is mentioned IYKWIM. Apparantly they bicker a lot at work and it concerns me. I am not fan of confrontation. At all.

    If you have made I this far, thank you!

    I'm not pregnant, I just enjoy being comfortable haha.
    Anywhere else we go, I do make the effort, but dressing nicely or a trip to McDonald's or a rush trip to woolworths for tomorrows lunch? No.

    At least your trackies are respectable!!! ... I did a Coles run tonight in my 10 year old favorite trackies that are so thread bare they are almost see through haha. DH keeps trying to throw them out hehe

    IMO... Trackies for mcdonalds or supermarket, perfectly fine!!!

    pfft trackies & a t-shirt are fine for those situations! I don't think you're a slob (unless I am too!)

    The work thing sounds a bit tricky though, what sort of advice are you looking for? Or just venting?

    If I wasn't getting out the car, trackies are fine. If I was getting out the car I'd put something a but nicer on.

    I was in warnbro maccas today and I think I was a tad over-dressed in my jeans trackies would definitely have been appropriate
