To think that there's a time and a place to do your bikini line?

and that's in the privacy of your own home, or at a beauticians... not at the local swimming pool!

Got out of the (communal) showers this morning and was drying off in the open part of the changing room. You can see the showers from the changing room, can't help it in fact, the benches face them. Suddenly realised the lady at the end was shaving her legs.

Thought hmm as never seen someone do that before at a pool... next time I turned round she was legs akimbo doing her bikini line!

Surely that's something to do in the shower at home not in a room full of strangers? And I wasn't spying or anything, she had the curtain back, facing the room!

I thought 'ewwwwww' rather than judgy pants, but am I missing a trick? Should I put a razor and my wax strips into my swim bag so I can multitask?

I'm just grateful she didn't actually do it in the pool. It was lovely and warm in there this morning.

shock Is nothing sacred?

ewww indeed! Maybe she is proud of her legs akimboness and wanted all to see her fanjo!

I'm pretty skanky generally but even I'd draw the line at shaving legs at the pool - let alone bikini line! What if she nicked herself? Yuck and biohazard

Oh dear.

But then there is always the odd woman who is "in your face" naked in communal changing rooms, wandering around for half an hour and barely remembering to put her clothes on before going out of the door. Whereas everyone else is capable of getting dry and at least putting on a bra and pants before wandering about to dry their hair or whatever. So not entirely surprising. There's one at every party. hmm

As long as no one else was waiting for a shower, I can´t really see the problem tbh.

My ex mother in law went swimming every morning so used the shower at the pool rather than paying to heat water up at home. It wasn't her was it?

BaronessOrczy Thu 15-Sep-11 11:18:29

She had adopted a rather 'thrusting' pose, Coffee

And she was definitely old er than me enough to have known better.

BaronessOrczy Thu 15-Sep-11 11:19:54

Kladd, wouldn't the cost of the swim be far more than the cost of the water?

No, no one else was waiting, Diddl

I saw a woman at the swimming pool once who was wandering around naked after a shower, then asked her (equally exhibitionist) friend to rub lotion into her back shock How does she lotion her back when she's at home? Why the soft porn communal changing room show? "oooh a little higher, that's perfect" confused

I've never seen it myself, but it must happen because I've seen signs up reminding people it's not allowed.

Kladdkaka Thu 15-Sep-11 11:26:02

Baroness, she would have been going swimming anyway, but if I remember correctly, she had a monthly membership to the gym and pool so could use it as much as she liked.

YANBU it's gross

I was sitting on a bench once in the changing room. I was putting on my shoes so was bent over. When I straightened up the WAS LITERALLY A VAGINA (or vagina and vulva an labia or whatever the fuck it is I'm meant to call it) IN MY FACE. She had one leg up on the bench, one on the floor (like those diagrams you used to get in tampons?) and was drying her VAGINA IN MY FACE.


SnapesMistress Thu 15-Sep-11 11:34:48

Hahaha Shirley did you headbutt it?

ShirelyKnotSHIRE Thu 15-Sep-11 11:37:28

It was not far off. It was bloody hypnotic as well. I was so shocked I just sat there staring up her flue.

Holy Shit. I'd forgotten about that.

<bites fist>

BaronessOrczy Thu 15-Sep-11 12:06:23

I got off lightly then Shirley grin

ViolaTricolor Thu 15-Sep-11 12:09:39

We need to know now whether she blow-dried it afterwards.

Maisiethemorningsidecat Thu 15-Sep-11 12:13:15

How did you 'forget' about that Shirley??!! It's the kind of thing that would have me squirting bleach in my eyes for the rest of my days and seeking talking therapy.

OP - YANBU. Did she get all fancy and shave her initials or the Union Jack in it?

DreamsOfSteam Thu 15-Sep-11 12:15:30

shirely I just sat there staring up her flue grin ha ha I think I just weed abit at that!

BaronessOrczy Thu 15-Sep-11 12:44:02

I didn't get that close Maisie, sorry. Tomorrow I'll keep an eye out for a bottle of hair dye grin

And she wasn't drying herself per se, more ostentatiously patting the moisture away in the style of a 1990's tv commercial, as if she was taking part in some kind of study to find out how much moisture her shower cream had contributed to her cellulite skin.

<shakes head>

The brain can be kindly you know? Like when people have a bad car accident or something and they can only remember getting in the car but nothing after that?


Maisiethemorningsidecat Thu 15-Sep-11 14:21:01

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder type thing?

I hear you.

SmethwickBelle Thu 15-Sep-11 14:35:49

YANBU, time and a place with communal facilities. I can go one better though.

I used to swim at an old victorian pool where the four communal open showers were at one end of the pool, so people would just have a quick rinse off in their costumes, occasionally using a bit of gel or shampoo but as you were in full view of everyone swimming you wouldn't linger.

EXCEPT all the old boys who used the pool after early lane swim used to clearly take the opportunity to have their daily hot shower there and would bring flannels and soap themselves up from head to foot, including one old gimmer who I referred to as the "vigourous soaper" who would WITHOUT FAIL stick his hands inside his trunks front and back with his soapy flannel, giving himself a right good soaping. he'd start soaping when I was swimming in one direction and would still be soaping away three lengths later.
