So now that I’m finally getting back on my game (I shouldn’t type this b/c you KNOW that means I won’t be back for another month…whoops!) I have something I’ve been meaning to say and Crissy’s poll yesterday gave me the push to write it.
Peeing in the shower.
I have to say this is the grossest thing I can think of. Peeing in the ocean? Cool with me, just stand far away from me. But a shower? Aw hellllll no.
My shower routine has always been as follows:
- Enter bathroom
- Take off clothes
- Get into shower
That 3rd step there? Pee? That one only takes 30 seconds! So why are you skipping it? Is it a timing issue? Is it for the environment? Skip the TP then, fine with me. And you can always follow the “if it’s yellow, let it mellow” philosophy and save your pre-shower flush for later in the morning. But please, for the love of all that is good and right and CLEAN in this world, don’t pee in the shower!!!
I’ve mentioned this before but I feel it bears repeating. My junior year in college I lived with 4 other girls. 5 girs, 2 bathrooms. And I was sharing a bathroom with the Monica Gellar of the apartment so I thought I was safe. Then one day 2nd semester after one girl went off to her semester in Spain and I’d moved to the other bedroom/bathroom I found out that the clean freak had been peeing in the shower!!! With NO warning to her fellow roommates! How is that okay?! Her “excuse” was that she did it while she was washing her hair and so the soap rinsed it out.
Oh, what, that’s not a problem for you?
Have you seen Ellen’s hair?
Or Sienna Miller’s?
Or perhaps Kate Gosselin’s ‘do?
Now do you see the issue?! How much soap can hair like that use?! There is no way shampooing a cut like that could produce enough suds to sufficiently rinse out pee!! Especially from a college shower that never drains quite as quickly as it should.
I went through an entire semester getting into a pee-filled shower. That was 4 months of pee-tainted showers. And worse…baths. *Shudders* Are you kidding me? You didn’t warn me that you were using my tub as a toilet?! Oh noooo! No no no no no! That is sooooo not okay.
There are things I can see doing in the shower. Brushing your teeth. Combing your hair. But answering nature’s call? Noooo way.
You know–I’ll even give a pass to single people who aren’t sharing a bathroom. If you can feel clean after your shower even though you just drained your tank in it, more power to you. But the second you get a roommate, spouse, pet–cut it out! Because seriously?
