Do you wear scrubs?

Do you wear those little scrubs that you can buy in wal-mart and the dollar general store? I was wondering if people who don't work in the medical industry wear them working around the house. They are inexpensive to buy, tired of looking homeless. I thought it would be a nice change in wardrobe for awhile. :)

In my last job, I had to wear them because I worked around sterile linen, so hence the scrubs. I still have certain pairs around the house, but don't pay them no mind now. They even gave us some more more when they had surplus. Oh, one enterprising folk sold them and folks had to step to management about it.

I am not in the medical field, but I've never tried wearing scrubs before. I have to admit though, I have eyed them up in the store sometimes and wondered if they might be comfy to wear around the house! I probably wouldn't actually end up buying them, but they do look like they would be comfortable just for lounging around the house on the weekends, or maybe for doing housework. I would probably get some teasing from my husband, though. hehe

yes, i do wear those scrubs. and let me tell you i am NOT in the medical field, and maybe if it wasn't for my nametag, i might pass as a nurse... wish i got paid that much tho.... no i work in housekeeping, and i am the supervisor, and we all wear scrubs. there are a few downsides to them though, when you are outside, the air goes right through them. downside for us where we work, we are not allowed to wear the fun printed ones. and that really sucks, because i like to be festive. i don't see any problem wearing them around the house... whatever makes you happy and feel comfortable :)
