People who leave their coats on in the house….

Is it really just because they are cold or do they secretly want to escape? Do they think I will steal their coat and never give it back? I can never tell and to be quite honest it unsettles me.

    You should do the same when they’re around but wear a heavier jacket.

      Good plan, it could end up as a coat-off! Right I need to get myself an Eskimo coat 😉

    When I do it (in my own house) I’m either cold, or so comfortable that I forget I have it on! XD

      Hehe! I suppose it is quite handy for leaving the house again. I have a habit of shedding everything the minute I walk in the door. If I am not in my pjs after 5 minutes of being at home there is something amiss 😉 x

        Haha I do that sometimes too! The joy of knowing you don’t have to be leaving home again anytime soon 🙂

    Kids do it from a lack of confidence: you know when they’ve settled when they remove their coats.
    As for adults it could be any of the reasons you mention, or the same as the kids’. I often leave my coat on inside because I’ve forgotten it’s on. Though it could be early senility…

      That’s really interesting! Yeah, perhaps for some adults it is a comfort thing, left over from childhood. I think I need to get a more comfortable coat, the only thing I am comfy in, at home, are my pjs! 🙂

    I am one of these!! Very sorry lyd but its honestly because i am cold!! Xx

      hehe Mary! As long as you promise you are not trying to escape! By the way, you always have lovely clothes, so I actually would like to steal your coat but i know it wouldn’t fit so i’ll let you keep it. For now 😉 xxx

    I know exactly what you mean Lydia! It always makes me feel so uncomfortable but that’s because I just assume it’s because they can’t wait to leave 😉

    • ljbradburn / Oct 4 2013 7:46 am

      Me too! I don’t mind it at all if it is because they are cold but I always think it means they want to run away from me! x
