100-Word Thought

Wearing Pajamas to Work

Nurses get to wear casual clothes to work.

We’re expected to wear scrubs, which are really just professional pajamas. We do get a color choice though, pewter, navy or black.


I shouldn’t complain. Scrubs are comfortable and cheap when you consider how much it costs for a work wardrobe.

AND, you don’t have to tax your brain too much when deciding what to wear every day.

Still. It would be nice to be able to wear normal clothes now and again. Scrubs are not very restrictive – which is why there are a lot of fat people in health care.
