to think DH should shower after playing footie?

Okay, so I know I'm not - but I'd like some back up to show him. He plays footie after work for an hour. Gets appropriately sweaty. Goes for a pint or two at the social club at his work. Comes home. Sits around in his stinky footie kit and then (boak) comes to bed still smelly.

I like that he plays sport. I just don't want to put up with the smell. AIBU?

He should have least have a shower before bed... if not straight after the game. Stinky man.

YANBU. That's yuk. Take a shower, man!

Jesus that is disgusting!

DH would have a shower before bed even if he had only mowed the lawn or something.

Gross, gross, gross.

Ewwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!! Needs a shower! I'd kick him outta bed till he does.

wy doesn't he shower with everyone else straight after the game?

Fresh sweat - lovely.

Stinkiness after a couple of hours down the pub: yeuch.

YANBU. I hope he doesn't expect sex whilst he is all sweaty and smelly.
If he is refusing to get showered I'd get the girliest smelling deodorant/body spray then when he gets in give him a good blast all over with it.

My OH virtually always showers straight after sports. But tbh, as long as we are not socialising with others, my OH's unshowered body is not an issue for me at all.

Disgusting that he goes for a pint whilst still sweaty/smelly-yuk!

Goes to bed in the same state-double yuk!

Does he have no respect for you?

My teenage daughter sometimes has "offensive" feet & washes them-without being told!

blimey - you're quick! No - he's not getting any whilst stinky - doesn't do it for me wink

Edith - that's my point - he thinks that not showering immediately after sports is different to not showering yourself for a week, or whatever. Obviously it is a bit, but not much. And DH is normally very clean about himself so I don't understand why he's not bothered.

And sitting around in a smelly kit-not nice either.

YANBU, I have a similar prob with DH who thinks showering every other day is adequate when he cycles to and from work. He certainly doesn't get any when he's sweaty, but as he has a lower sex drive than me anyway I doubt he notices.... hmm
