At the pool this morning a lady was shaving her legs in the poolside showers. Am I being unreasonable to think that you don't shave legs in communal open showers (there are private showers elsewhere in the changing rooms)?

That is properly disgusting and would make me want to vom. But I am super queasy about things like that and possibly slightly OCD

YANBU. Usually there are signs up saying not to do it. Bleurgh.

Yadnbu, that's really unpleasant and what if she cuts herself? Not v hygienic either. Yuck!

But really... why is it disgusting? The water just goes straight down the drain? I wouldn't shave my legs in there but I wash my hair and the bits acres of hair that fall out when I wash go down the drain too.

Hair doesn't always go down the drain. I have to walk around stray hairs to get to the pool!

I shave my legs in the private showers at the gym. I wouldn't do it in open showers, but I can't see what's so minging about it.

It's the blood thing that would get me rather than the hair. Eww.

blood, and taking too long. Doesn't she have a bathroom at home, we ask?

That's gross

YY to the hairs not going down the plughole. sad Bleurgh. There is no need to shave your legs at the pool. Go home and do it.

There was a swimming teacher/lifeguard that used to do this...but she would also do her fanjo too!!!! shock

I know its a but ick, but maybe something was up with her shower at home and she had to temporarily use the pool showers? There's nothing worse than shaving your legs over the sink at home, if that's the alternative. It rips your legs to shreds and gives you those horrid red bumpy bits.

Though I probably would of gone at bit urgh at it...imagine if you got home and all her hairy bits were stuck to your feet from the shower? (along with all the verrucas and old plasters that you pick up from pool floors).

At my gym a sign has appeared asking people not to shave in the steam room or sauna. My mind boggles that that was necessary but apparently it was.

trinity0097 Fri 05-Apr-13 18:51:13

I've seen her do it before, after the shampoo before the shower gel!

Lifeguards don't do anything if they even notice!

It's just not the done thing. It's bad manners.

A woman at my gym used to shave her legs in the steam room and flick shavings onto the floor! A few people complained; she doesn't do it anymore.

YANBU that's a bit gross!

I wouldn't care confused I'm sure there's nastier stuff on the floor that you can't see, germs and the like, than the few hairs that won't get washed down the plughole. I really don't understand why its a big deal.
