Police remind residents to wear pants when getting the mail

A US police department has reminded local residents to put on their pants when they go outside.

The Taneytown Police Department, which serves about 7,200 citizens in the Maryland town, advised people who are obeying the stay-at-home order to wear their pants when they check their mailbox.

“Please remember to put pants on before leaving the house to check your mailbox,” the department said in a Facebook post on Wednesday. “You know who you are. This is your final warning.”

The post has since gone viral with more than 800 comments and 5,300 shares. Many responded with gif images with the caption “Life’s too short for pants”, while one commented that wearing underwear outside may not necessarily be in breach of the law on indecent exposure.

In Australia, people have been getting creative with their looks on bin day as they dress up to take the rubbish out.

Aussies have taken to the Bin Isolation Outing Facebook group and other social media sites to share pictures of their outfits on their walk out, including graduation gowns, character costumes, animal onesies and more.

“So basically the bin goes out more than us SO let’s dress up for the occasion!” the group wrote.
