I'm toooo tired.

I also plan to go again tomorrow morning.

Would it be terribly unreasonable just to give the sweaty bits a quick sluice down?

Nobody will notice.

YABU. And you know it.

yabu. If you're anything like me you'll get pimples if you don't shower todays sweat off.

Get off the laptop and do it now before your pores get all clogged up!

shower cap on, a 1 min wash, you'll feel loads better

but I have been guilty of being UR in this matter

If you're washing the sweaty bits it won't matter.

Yabu a shower after the gym is the best type of shower.

and it's not the actual shower bit.

it's drying my sodding hair or it will go insane, and then getting dressed again. and the thought that in about 13 hours i have to do it all again.

hence shower cap, no wet hair.

I never dry, I just sit around in my towel until I am dry

plus if you can smell yourself, you know it's 10 times worse than you think it is.

plus if you're like me you won't be able to sleep well knowing you smell

what's the point of having a clean body and sweaty head?

i'll go.

in a minute.....

PenguinArmy Mon 15-Aug-11 17:43:15

don't make me come over there

besides it's bad to wash your hair every day that's what I tell myself

my justification is that I once did a lot of weekends away camping or in bad huts and I needed my hair not to be greasy after day 1.

if you fancy sweaty sheet, then don't shower.

I don't usually bother with the shower at the gym (especially if I'm cycling) if I am going straight home.
I then take all my kit off that goes straight in the wash and then get showered/ bathed.

If I'm going to work or out I will shower at the gym.

If you are going to go within any distance of another person then you must shower, if you are a hermit and live on an unhabited cave (in which case you won't have been to the gym) then it is fine not to.
Sorry but YABU.

Eurgh, you'll get spots. And your head will be all itchy and gross.

AtYourCervix Mon 15-Aug-11 19:30:10
