Do they not have standards?

I well remember taking a party of Liverpool schoolchildren to a campsite in the South of France. In the mornings the girls would put a dressing gown over their nightclothes and go down to the cafeteria for breakfast.

I did wonder what the French tourists staying there would make of it. Still, that is probably how these young ladies would normally be dressed for breakfast at home  At least these girls were not out in the street.

We regularly see Spaniards in the streets of Bigastro out to buy a baguette or other morning shopping wearing a dressing gown and slippers. However, I have never seen anyone in a cafe in pyjamas but apparently that is a commonplace way to dress at the Los Monaguillos cafe in Mármoles street, Malaga.

The owner decided that it was no longer acceptable for women to be in his cafe mid morning still dressed in their sleepwear and put up a sign telling them so. Some have either ignored the sign or just missed it and still turn up unsuitably dressed. They are served but politely made to stand outside for their morning churros.
