    Default WWYD - dressing gown in public

    You are driving to work through a suburban area when you notice a man walking with a small dog. The man is dressed in a full length winter dressing gown. It is summer time.

    Do you:

    A) Mind your own business and keep driving
    B) Pull over and stop the car, offering to buy the man a more appropriate summer-weight gown
    C) Check if he has plastic bags on hand in case his dog poops
    D) Wind your window down to express your distaste for his pyjama rama
    E) Other?

    I will tell you all how I handled it, just waiting to gage the response of others…

    D.

    Reminds me of the dude I saw out of the bus window during my first O week at uni. He was walking his dog too. No dressing gown though. He had a shirt on, no buttons done up. And nothing else. NOTHING else. In the middle of a busy 4 lane road.

    Elderly man? I'd be concerned that he has some sort of dementia or alzheimers........

    Was there anything else off about his appearance or demeanour?
