so here in merry olde england we have postmen.

and when they have parcels they knock knock knock on the door and give you the parcel.

thats all fab

now...
when making a dress i find it easier to wear what i will be wearing under the dress to fit it (i.e tights and a bra of sorts)

and in this coldest of seasons i may throw a vest ontop.


both of those things are perfectly acceptable and normal


but what if we combine the two?

yeahh.
not so good when you answer the door to poor mister posty in some tights and a vest top.

i dont exactly have a great figure
or presentable hair at that time


and its not just that time

its ALL the time!!

does anyone else encounter this?

or am i just wierd???

I'm always answering the door to the postman in various states on undress!

When the doorbell goes you have to make quick decision judging the importance of the parcel, times with the level of embarrassment to be had!

Make a 'Saving the postman's blushes' dressing gown or kimono to keep by the front door!

I work third shift, so I am always sleeping during the day. Usually when there is a knock at the door it wakes me up, and I run to the door in my pajamas, which consists of a a pair of short shorts and a very thin tank top (Texas heat).  I have embarrassed many delivery men, neighbors, and potential paper boys with my quite obviously bra-less outfit, but hey, they knocked on MY door!  Cheesy

I had this happen a few days ago. I've just finished a swap and am waiting for my partner to send out. Anyway at about 10am theres a knock on our door (I'm a student so this is seriously early!) I run down stairs in PJ bottoms oversize t-shirt (no bra or anything) open the door to find smeone wanting to talk to me about chrstianity... After politely refusing I catch site of myself in the hall mirror. Last nights makeup round my eyes, my dreads all over the place because of course I hadn't rolled them that morning and because of the cold door a bit of a "nip-on" in the boob department. Probably scared the guy half to death!

i always love the tribal wings people have but i couldnt pull them off

im getting a carter the unstoppable sex machine based tattoo(a lyric probs) but thats all.

a bit of a "nip-on" in the boob department.

omgz i hear ya!

the worst is that the cold weather(bloody england!)  means i am in danger of "nip-on" (or "coat hooks" as me and my friends call them) at school.when all we have are thin rubbish polo tops.grrr...

OH YEAH!
my favourite personal indignity is answering the door mid-dress-sewing-session one afternoon with a glass of wine and a cigarette, wearing nothing but knickers and a tank top! I thought it was my neighbour who's seen me in this state before... turns out, it wasn't, it was a delivery guy bringing me a case of wine!
He was probably thinking "this woman doesn't need any more wine"!!

HAHAHAHA!!

Thankfully I still live at home and make my parents deal with anyone at the door if I'm not properly attired.

However there was one time I was at my boyfriend's house putting the finishing touches on my Ren Faire costume and I was in my undies trying it on, and my boyfriend had just come out of the shower.  Of course we're comfortable around each other, but his mum had a bad habit of not knocking and just barging in.  So she bangs the door open and sees him totally naked and me in my undies.  It took a lot of explaining before she believed we weren't "canoodling" while she was home, but it broke her habit of never knocking!

Without fail, if for any reason I am not properly dressed, even for a moment, someone will arrive at the door.  Without fail.  I can go 3 months without a knock at the door and prepare to take an afternoon shower, and at that moment the knock will come.  Every time.

I usually keep a robe handy for such circumstances. But yes it does always seem that the doorbell rings when I'm in a state of undress.
