To think that it wouldn't hurt him NOT to shower once in a while?

YABU, but I don't understand why he can't just shower and go? I mean it takes me less than half an hour toget ready including showering and teeth and hair. Taking two hours??? What on earth is he doing?

Combined with the late rising, YANBU, very much not, I think.

I live with a morning-showerer who, like Quattro, gets up and showers and gets on with it.

He needs to get up earlier. Why on earth does it take 2 hours to get ready? I have thick shoulder length hair, a 2 year old and a 5 year old on my own, and can still get showered and out of the house well within 2 hours.

The issue is not the shower, it is the time he wakes up. Dh showers every morning but has to be at work for 8-8.30. He gets up and showers at 7am - the shower takes about 15 mins on a slow day.

Both myself and Dh shower every morning. However we are both up and ready to go by 7.30.
It is not the showering IMO that is the problem but his lazy approach to the day

Does he work late shifts? Why does he get up so late when you have dc?

I am a bit hmm actually.

YANBU. My dh and I take 15 minutes to get ready in the morning, including a shower.

Not being ready to go out before noon on most days is just lazy.

Eh? I too can be out to work in less than an hour while dealing alone with 2 small kids.

DP completes his ablutions (incl shower) in about 20mins flat

D'you reckon yoour dp has a quick sherman while he's there? wink

YANBU - 2 hours is too long to prep! I can be up and gone in 30 mins even with shower.

But...have same prob with my DH. He has to spend at least 20mins having a poo every morning!! I mean, how long does it take to read an article! So meanwhile I am struggling to get 2dcs ready for nursery and me to work!! YUCK!!

Naval contemplation WTF

Quattrocento Mon 11-Aug-08 12:24:40

Well it's hardly a quick Sherman is it?

On behalf of compulsive morning showerers though, they feel dirty if getting dressed without showering. I'm not saying that they would be dirty of course, most likely they wouldn't be, it's just how they feel.

zippitippitoes Mon 11-Aug-08 12:26:24

agree with zippi.

Does he keep other people waiting too?

JuneBugJen Mon 11-Aug-08 12:28:18

turn off the hot water every night before bed when you need him to get moving. At least then he will be in and out fast.


Gateau Mon 11-Aug-08 12:28:39

Two hours!! Is he applying perfect make-up too? And why does he get up so late?
In answer to your shower question, none of us needs to shower every day. It is in fact bad for our skin as it dries it out.
But I know most people like to have one once a day - it just makes you feel fresher. I sometimes have mine the night before, partic if I'm washing my hai.
But he needs to speed up. It's self-indulgent and it would drive me barmy.

How bloody irritating he sounds.

Don't wait for him if you have planned something. Leave without him. He is dawdling like a child, treat him like one.

I wouldn't wait for him.

DH is a morning showerer, too, it helps wake him up, but he's in and out in about 15 minutes and that includes a wet shave.

He works shifts as well and he's always worked a manual job so he prefers a daily shave.
