It is reported that higher levels of home working are believed to be responsible for recent increases in sales of nightwear, loungewear and underwear. The first two I can understand but underwear?
If people work from home that’s good,
And if you can you really should,
It is the new thing on the scene,
And, take my word, it’s very green.
There is no need to wear a suit
Or fancy dress at which folk look,
So for the most part of the day,
You can in your pyjamas stay.
Or maybe loungewear’s more for you,
A bigger choice there, that is true,
And then, depending on the job,
You might just look less like a slob.
Result of all this people say,
Is sales of these are up today,
But also up if you compare,
Are Primark’s sales of underwear.
I do not know why this should be,
But data like this … let me see …
Suggests that we – please do not smirk –
Wear more at home than when at work.
