    In the morning...?

    I timed my significant other this morning and he took almost 40 minutes.

    I think I may take like 10 (indluding shaving)...he needs to die.

    You? I'm just trying to get a baseline for bitching at him next time he hogs the bathroom.

    5-10 minutes. I've had a few friends though that take more than 30 minutes. Used to always wonder what on earth they were doing in there...

    10-20 minutes. Depends on whether I shave or not. Shaving takes ages.

    I get in, shampoo hair, bruth teeth, wash out hair, condition hair, shave, wash out conditioner, shampoo and condition body (instead of body wash), then rinse. However long that all takes. Occasionally if I'm in a nice shower (i.e. not my ones at home that are buggered at the mo) then I'll stand and day dream for a while and end up taking ages.

    I hate that.

    I say I take 5, 10 if there's hair washing or hair removal to be done (different types of hair, before you ask :p ).

    Depends... to relax about 20min tops. All other times about 10min - including shaving. Longer than 20min... its generally because I'm not on my own;)

    It depends.

    3-4 minutes usually. Longer if I need to do more to my hair than a quick rinse. It can be a while if I'm really tired and need to wake up.

    Well that's the thing - I am the one who always says "Hey, I'm hopping in the shower - do you need the john before I get in?

    Him - NEVER. Then he gets out, I run in and he's like "Uh, sorry.."

    STOP FRACKING DOING IT THEN. :eek:

    Best post yet. :D

    About 10 mins in the morning and a about 5 mins before bed, I'm trying to keep it down cause water is very precious and our dam is below 30% :( Besides I became Australian Waterboy, I have a duty :D

    I take 10 minutes including shaving.

    Under 10 minutes for shower, grooming, brushing my teeth and getting dressed.

    Add another 10 minutes whenever I'm shaving and trimming the (remains of my) hair.

    Usually no more than ten minutes, add five for shaving purposes. The girlfriend, however, somehow manages to take twenty minutes on average, which I don't comprehend seeing as how there's a good deal less of her to wash than there is me. Luckily, our house has two bathrooms, so when she moved in I put her in the other one.

    :D It's when I start hearing nail clippers, or something entirely non-urgent like that with the door still locked that I start to lose it. :mad:

    Ah yes, me too, dear, me too. It's like - uh, you know I live here, too.

    I usually do a quick shower, dry off and get some boxers on, and while I'm putting those on I ask him if he needs the john before I go back in to shave...is that difficult?

    Argh. :)

    You wash your body with shampoo and conditioner? How hairy are you? :eek:

    You call them day dreams. I call them "fantasies." ;)

    LOL! I only wash my body with shampoo and conditioner because I don't like body wash or soap and don't want yet another bottle in the shower. I shampoo *and* condition my body because... I hate it when the levels aren't equal in the bottles!! :eek: I'm not hairy at all!!

    About 10 for the shower and shave.
    About half an hour with the tissue paper getting the blood off my face, then finding out I missed a bit and having to re-shave. Several times. Must get a bigger mirror, or one of those shaving mirrors.

    Ah, an honest man. :p

    3-5 minutes (w/o shave)
    7-10 minutes (w/ shave)

    And then there's the one's w/ my lady. Those can go on as long as the hot water lasts. *big grin*

    Just as an aside, and not to start a political debate on this, but you men who shave in the shower - you realize what a tremendous waste of water that is, right? :)

    As fast as I can, can't waste water here. Every day that goes by is another day closer to drinking recycled urine.

    Damn this drought!!
