Sloppily dressed, why?

Before simply reading the first few lines and then jumping right into the conversation read what I have typed in red and underlined for a better understanding of the topic at hand.  It is all fine and dandy to jump to conclusions and go off the introduction to a thread but a deeper perspective goes a long way.

 

While I was sitting in the hospital yesterday waiting for DH to finish his radiation treatment, lab work and talking to his chemo doctor I did what I usually do, people watch. 

Now before I start I will say that I was wearing a pair of jeans, a black quarter sleeve top and a pair of Merril fast packing boots, nothing dressy or special, my normal every day wear.

As I was looking around I noticed how many people were dressed rather sloppily.  Men with ill fitting pants and shirts (yes I consider baggy pants and t shirt 2 sizes too big ill fitting and sloppy) and women in the equivolent of pajama pants and t-shirts. 

Of course I reminded myself that I was in a hospital where many people come because they are sick and not feeling their best and probably not up for dressing their best but it did make me wonder.  What ever happened to looking your best?  In my opinion the way you dress not only shows respect to those around you but also to yourself.  Now, I am not calling for the days when women wore only dresses and men walked around in tailored suits but I do wonder why it is so hard to put on well fitting, nice clothes such as a pair of clean jeans and a nice top. 

For reference, this IMO is sloppy

This is well dressed

 

Now of course I realize that tastes vary and not everyone will agree what is and is not fashionable so these pics are only examples.  But tell me why, why do some people insist on dressing decently when the leave their home?  No matter how tired I am I always ensure that my apperance is neat and clean and does DH. It shows that we respect ourselves and those around us. 

 

 

Edited to bold, highlight, italicize and underline that I realized I was in the hospital for those judging me because they didn't read the entire post.

you have got to be kidding? people who are ill and getting treatment, the last thing likely on their mind is wether their clothes are sloppy or not. WTF?

People who are sick aren't gonna want to put on khakis and a blazer. *shrug* Why judge them? What point does it serve?

If they ar going to the hospital I highly doubt the last thing they care about is how they look.

I'm not even referring to the treatment part, but these days many people just don't care anymore.

It's sad to me

some people just aren't taught its important...others think they look awesome lol.  walmart is the best place to people watch when it comes to that. when i was much younger we would go to wlamart at like 3am and look at people. as for me i can not go out of my house like that. its just not in me..there are some days i wish i could though! on my lazy days i think 'it sure would be nice if i could stumble out of the house like this and be ok instead of doing my hair, makeup , and getting dressed"

Looking your best while your sick? You're kidding right? No way would I ever judge someone for dressing sloppy while their ill. They're at the hospital because their sick, not for a beauty contest!

Myob. Seriously, who gives a crap what others wear? Worry about yourself. Besides, just think- if everybody dressed "nice" like you, you wouldn't have anything to come on cm and post about! :)

she had to remind herself but she kept on the same track anyways. i just am astounded that someone would start even thinking this way when viewing how sick people are dressed in a hospital
