I inwardly cringe at the large glass windows of hairdresser salons these days and wonder if all the women inside really want everyone to be able to see them while their 'natural look' roots are touched up or while they do a fine 'Wild Women of Borneo' impression when their hair is full of highlight foils. It feels like giving away trade secrets.
Previously private states of 'undress' are now more common in public but is that confidence that should be applauded or old-fashioned laziness along with our, ever-popular, "What yer gonna do about it?" attitude?
Wearing pyjamas and leaving your shoes at home became newsworthy when a supermarket asked for some sort of decency from its shoppers. (I love the way the spokesperson clarified that they are not a nightclub; in case we had any confusion.) Would seeing other shoppers in their night clothes make you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed? Or do you see it the same as wearing tracksuit bottoms and a T-shirt? I'll admit, I saw a woman in a long T-shirt, which was obviously her nightdress, in the local mini-supermarket the other evening and I gave her a wide berth. Is it really such a chore to dress yourself when leaving the house these days?
Shopping malls often have 5-minute massage booths in the middle of the aisle and I've wondered why someone would choose to be massaged in public. Threading, a form of hair removal, is also common in the mall aisles and while doing your eyebrows is one thing, I suppose, having your lady moustache and chin hair threaded for all to watch is a very strange choice.
What have you spotted out and about lately that made you wonder why they couldn't have done that at home?
