I am 33 years old and was recently talking to a few of my buddies about hanging out with my dad when I was a boy and mentioned that my Dad and I were frequently wearing just our tighty whities around…Continue
"My dad is in his 40s and it is the same for him. I never saw him in his underwear because he got dressed when he got up in the morning. Very occasionally he'd watch the Grand Prix on a Sunday in his dressing gown after taking a shower but that…"
"I guess I never would've thought twice about it if it wasn't for this thread. I saw my dad in his undies all the time, and they were tightie whities and I grew up thinking, "I don't like the look of that." haha.
"Every family has a different culture, which means people behave, think, and perceive things differently. If that situation felt normal for you and your dad, I don't think there is/was anything wrong with it. The problem is when you're used…"
"Grew up in house where dad and son's hung out in undies I believe everynight watching tv playing games whatever familys do in the evening after settling down for the evenings, I even remember eating dinner that way many times. I…"
"My dad probably doesn't feel comfortable rolling like that but I walk around my house in underwear all the time. I'd walk around in most people's houses in my underwear though. Odd though because I usually go commando..."
"underwear or nudity is common in my house with all of us (except the wife) as long as no guests are around. my kids are 10,7,4 (boy,boy,girl). i don't see what the big deal is. i think this over obsession with modesty coupled…"
"I must say that although it would not have been usual for my father to wander around in his underwear i often saw him with or without it. We ofen went swimming when i was young with my father and we would all be naked. We had household staff so we…"
"Agree with Will - As time changes so does the norm. Me, my dad and mom all hung out in our underwear when I was a kid no AC what is someone supposed to do? My son's just under one yr old. I'm in my boxers shirtless giving him a bath a few…"
"Personally I do not hang out in my underwear with or without my son. I think the only time he's seen me in my underwear is in my bedroom getting into, being in, or getting out of, bed. As soon as I get up I put pants and a shirt on…"
"I never saw my dad in his underwear outside of the bedroom.
Men of his generation who aspired to some sort of classiness did not do that sort of thing; the most I saw of his underwear was a T-shirt when doing things outside in the heat.
"My routine is out of bed, clean up, dress, and get on with my day. My hang out time is here and there between things, so I think I'd find hanging around in my undies to be a pain in the ass. Seems I've always got people dropping by,…"
"By your own admission, the unwritten curriculum is achieved in "free" systems by other means. So I don't see how it's a plus in your "paid" system.
Additionally, I don't see how it's a plus for anyone…"
"I have to agree with this.
It's all well and good that homeless people are graduating from college, cut the bulk of our population is in the middle. Either toward the bottom middle, only making ends meet with government assistance (food…"
""Nowhere else in the western world takes 39-week-old "fetuses", delivers them sufficiently to preserve the commercially valuable parts and then crushes the non-sellable parts in order to preserve a technical denial of…"
"The unwritten curriculum is just as important as the written curriculum. That unwritten curriculum is the whole reason that many employers do not care WHAT the degree was in, only that the person has a degree.
The unwritten curriculum is powerful."
"You do realize, while it's not the BEST way to do this, jumping through said hoops and all helps to teach the unwritten curriculum which is just as critical. It teaches how to navigate through bureaucratic systems (which are evil, but…"
