Blowing your nose in the shower

I think the actual nose blowing is fine. Environmentally friendly as it involves no paper, and no more water used than in a regular shower.

But AIBU to think that if you are a showering nose-blower, you should ensure all traces are damn well washed away so that the next showerer doesn't unwittingly stand in a MASSIVE PILE OF SNOT?

<traumatised>

Oh god, that's grim sad

Hopefully the nose-blower was a member of your own family because otherwise ... < Boak face > < wonders why we dint have a boak face icon?>

ScrambledSmegs, your name is very apt.
<brain bleach>

Y to blowing out mucus from nose in shower, y also to making sure it's gone down the plug hole.

ScrambledSmegs Tue 24-Sep-13 12:05:21

Definitely hope the nose-blower was my DH as otherwise someone broke into my house for the express purpose of leaving their bogey in my shower tray shock

<still traumatised>

It happened at 7am and I'm still getting hideous flashbacks.

DH does this. It is beyond grim, but the worst is finding some a few days later cemented to the tiles when cleaning and the only way to get it off is with a fingernail.

ScrambledSmegs Tue 24-Sep-13 12:11:18

DH now claims it wasn't him hmm. But apparently it's my responsibility to check for lurking hazards in the shower, not his to actually clean away his, er, remnants.

Yeah, right. We'll see about that...

ScrambledSmegs Tue 24-Sep-13 12:15:58

dumbelina - that is grim.

He's not normally this gross. He's been reasonably clean since the time it stuck to his leg, dried solid and we had to cut it off with nail scissors hmm

I'm frankly amazed that I still have sex with him.

TessTackle Tue 24-Sep-13 12:17:15

cut it off with nail scissors

Snorted gringrin

Tea up the nose is not a nice thing to experience you know <glowers at scrambled> grin

ScrambledSmegs Tue 24-Sep-13 12:28:56

Sorry grin

You know, I'm a little disappointed in the way this thread has gone. I've not been flamed, told this is a first world problem and asked if this is all I have to worry about yet. Let alone told to be grateful that I have a shower/DH/piles of mucus waiting to be trod in sad

MisselthwaiteManor Tue 24-Sep-13 12:43:57

I think in retaliation you should leave a clump of wet hair for him to stand in

YABU you minger, of course it is your job to clean up his snot.

Better? grin

ScrambledSmegs Tue 24-Sep-13 13:09:28

Hell yeah!

<cathartic>

pigletmania Tue 24-Sep-13 13:31:07

envy, I nose blow in the shows at times, I have chronic sinus problems and find the hot water and steam really help. But check afterwards to see if it's all clean

Erm, was it definitely snot? And not some other jellified bodily fluid...

ScrambledSmegs Tue 24-Sep-13 19:00:25

Oh. Yuck. No, definitely mucus. Unless DH has a serious health problem I've hitherto been unaware of envy

Crowler Tue 24-Sep-13 19:10:59

Oh my god. Poor you. Gross. Just gross.

VeganCow Tue 24-Sep-13 20:02:16

This is the stuff of nightmares. Seriously vile [heaves]

GruffBillyGoat Tue 08-Oct-13 08:07:21

Old thread but you reminded me of the worst shower ever. I like to fill empty conditioner bottles with water and shake it up to use for a rinse next time as it leaves my hair looking lovely.

One day I go to pour the water over myself and the bottle is full of PUBIC HAIR!!! I still have to pre-pour some out of the bottle to ensure it has not been tainted, and have no idea whos pubes I covered myself with.

KirjavaTheCorpse Tue 08-Oct-13 08:11:35

DP does this, has weekly bouts of chronic sinusitis all year round.

He also blows one nostril at a time into the toilet. One time he didn't notice that the slime had not met it's target. <vivid flashback>

...At least you didn't sit on it?

Golferman Tue 08-Oct-13 08:14:36

I pee on mine to clear it away grin

Fifibluebell Tue 08-Oct-13 08:38:43

grin @ Golferman!

FruOla Tue 08-Oct-13 09:39:38

Yuk. DP does this. I frequently find the remnants on the glass shower screen <bleurgh>

I thought your thread might go the other way. On some mornings, depending on who is about, this would definitely qualify for a resounding LTB!

<shudders, before going off for a very careful, late shower.>

diddl Tue 08-Oct-13 09:47:28

I have been known to do it, but clean it all away.

I think that the steam of the shower loosens things up...grin

ProudAS Tue 08-Oct-13 15:27:24

Blow nose onto hand then eat contents - yes I know it sounds gross but not by the standards of someone who'd leave snot behind for next person.

GoofyIsACow Tue 08-Oct-13 15:29:42

This is the most disgusting thing i have ever read... No doubt shock

FruOla Tue 08-Oct-13 15:37:33

ProudAs, snot on the shower screen, in the bath or on the tiles is skanky enough .... but .... words fail me shock

envy = [throwing-up face]

lessemin Tue 08-Oct-13 15:41:28

Christ !

KirjavaTheCorpse Tue 08-Oct-13 18:02:09

You EAT your SNOT?!

shock

ProudAS Tue 08-Oct-13 18:17:41

Never said I ate snot but I'd rather person in shower before me did so than left mess for me.

FruOla Tue 08-Oct-13 18:49:38

Oh blush
grin

ScrambledSmegs Fri 11-Oct-13 14:46:37

thanks to Kirjava and FruOla, the MNers who know wot of which I speak and really wish they didn't < ties self up in verbose knot>

ProudAS - thanks for that. <heaves>

Gruff - No. Words. shock

Can't believe this thread got resurrected on a week when I was prostrate with lurgy and my MNing severity curtailed!

FruOla Fri 11-Oct-13 15:28:34

I've just cleaned the bath and the glass shower screen - what's the betting DP gets into the shower this evening and <snots snots snots>? grin

NorbertDentressangle Fri 11-Oct-13 15:38:17

DP blows his nose in the shower too. I think it's foul.

When I hear him do it (and believe me it's loud - I swear our shower has bizarre amplification properties as it echos round the entire house) I just shudder.

Thankfully he does seem to wash it away though. If he didn't I think I'd batter him senseless with the shower head.
