だらしがない

The title, ‘darashi ga nai’ is one of a number of Japanese words for which I at least have not found an English translation  that fits well.

Our mail carrier the annoying habit of delivering other people’s mail to our house.  Last Saturday we got pretty much all our next door neighbor’s mail.  Walked it over knocked on the door (it was 10:30 am)  and the lady of the house answered the door still in her bath/nightrobe.   Will not assume what goes on at other people’s homes, but can assure that at 10:30 am, no one at my home is  in their bathrobe.
