    I most likely wouldnt of noticed and if i did, i would of thought nothing of it coz most of the people i have been caring for this week refuse to have their fans or air con on despite their rooms being disgustingly hot. Plus they will wear winter pjs.

    Default WWYD - dressing gown in public

    A)

    Apart from a slight wondering if he had some sort of age related cognitive deficit. But older people get cold really easily. Even at work, I've had some people turn their heaters on lately 😳

    When I was a teen I always wore long sleeves, even in the middle of summer. Sometimes people would randomly stop me and ask if I needed to get some summer clothes. While I was embarrassed as hell at the time, it really was very sweet.

    Presumably this happened locally? I wouldn't think much of it then. There are so many nutters and druggo's in this town. One I've had the pleasure (or not) of meeting wears jumpers/dressing gowns all year long cause apparently it's always cold.

    It totally happened locally! There's no shortage of oddballs, especially in certain suburbs. He was walking past W...ham Park.

    One of my lovely ladies refuses to have the fan on, and fights with anyone who tries to shut the curtains/windows to keep the heat out. Problem is, she's in a shared room. It's stifling in there.

    I was about to say the same! I wear a coat to work in morning because I feel its cold before 8! In Perth.. So I wouldn't think anything of it unless it was stinking hot and he has no dog with him.. That would be more odd

    In a suburb...a bit further away than that - DH saw an elderly man sitting in the gutter one day on the way to work. Thankfully he stopped and checked as the man had taken a fall and couldn't get up let alone walk home. DH was late for work. BUT! He had seen the man out regularly on his morning walk to grab the paper and knew he wasn't a nutter.

    I would try it out myself. Dressing gowns are so comfy.
    Just not if it's 30c outside
