People & Hospitals

The Mother had one of her knees replaced this week.
As a result, The Family and I have spent a lot of time at the hospital. 
A. Lot. Of. Time.

When is the last time you have spent
A. Lot. Of. Time.
at a hospital?

You see
All. Kinds. Of. People.

All. Kinds.

My. Goodness!

We felt out of place.

Why?

We shower every day.
We try to wear more, instead of less, clothing.
We don't have visible tattoos.
We don't curse publicly and loudly.
We don't tailgate in the parking lot with family & friends.

My goodness.
We'll be glad to get The Mother home!

NOTE:
Lest you think we are stiff, judgemental people,
please rest assured we are not.
We are some of the most liberal people you could ever meet!

This recent hospital experience has caused us to reminisce
about a time when people dressed up to:

go on a car/train/airplane trips
visit people in the hospital
 keep an appointment
go out to shop
go out to dine

Acknowledgement:
Every person who walks into a hospital has issues, concerns
and decisions to make that are invisible to the people they encounter.

Please know that I am not judging those people on those issues.
I'm not even judging them on their appearance,
contrary to what the above post may say.

I'm simply thinking about a time in the past
(which was my childhood)
where people dressed up in public.

What are your thoughts on this issue?

Do you dress up for the public?
