People Who Take Long Showers Explain What They're Really Doing In There

For some, showering is a chore, and as a result, they will do their best to get in and out of the shower as quickly as possible.

For others though, showering is an indulgence, and take their sweet time enjoying it.

It does beg the question, does it really take 20 minutes or more to wash one's hair and body?

Or do people get up to other things while enjoying the solitude and the (presumably) hot water.

Redditor Famous_Assistance683 was eager to know what exactly people who linger in the shower are really up to, leading them to ask:

"People who take the longest time in the shower, what the hell do you do in there?"

I just don't want to get out!

"Mostly think about how miserable it will feel to get out of the shower."- 14-stars

It just takes that long to get clean!

"Wash away the dirt: 5 mins."

"Wash away the pain: 45mins."- Overall_Outcome_392

"Thinking about random situations that will probably never happen."- Dyl-thuzad

"Some ppl my think I play with myself since I take really long showers, but in reality i just stare into nothing and everything at the same time and lose track of time while thinking about stuff I would never think anywhere else."- ClaraSG

Just savor it.

"Stand in the hot water."- Brilliant-Ear5863


It's a safety issue!

"I suck at shaving my legs in a timely fashion. oops."- SwagLordious420

"Shaving my entire body."- AnnaTraaa

It's all about the hair...

"Anyone with long curly hair is detangling it."- Krombuchar2

"Hair sh*t."

"I started growing out my hair like 5 months ago, and the longer it is the more of a pain it is to take care of."

"I’m getting better with it, but I was never really taught how to take care of long hair so it’s hard."-


It's easy to let our curiosity get the best of us.

But then we all must remember, whatever people get up to in private is none of our business.

People Break Down Which Foods No Longer Taste As Good As They Used To

Like lots of kids growing up, I did love my candy and my sugar. Truth be told, I wasn't allowed to have as much as I would have liked, but that doesn't mean I didn't sneak some candies whenever I had the opportunity.

Now that I'm older though? My taste buds just aren't the same.

I can't stomach too much of anything super sweet and the idea of chowing down on candy and chocolate the way I see some kids do pretty much grosses me out.

My body thanks me, though!

It's really no secret that most children think their parents are super uncool.

Because of course they are.

Parents didn't have lives or dreams of their own before they had children, right? How could they possibly ever have been fun?

That's sarcasm, by the way. Most people grow out of this attitude, and it usually disappears by the time a kid gets through their teenage years, when pretty much anything their parents do turns their faces red with embarrassment.

But suppose you, the parents, wanted to embarrass your kids anyway, say by reviving a slang term or two?

People shared their thoughts after Redditor the-tinman asked the online community,

"What are some slang terms a 50 year old dad can say to his daughter to embarrass her?"

It's always sad when people don't have anything better to do than throw insults at people.

And yet it happens far too often, between people who see each other on a fairly regular basis, as well as complete strangers.

It's always a good idea to avoid sinking to their level when this happens, and just ignore them and walk on by.

That being said, there is very little more satisfying than coming back at them with just the right choice of words, and leaving them in stunned silence.

Being diagnosed with cancer is news no one ever wants to hear.

For some people, the diagnosis might come as a surprise, with no signs or warnings whatsoever.

Others, however might have detected some irregularities, or suffered from symptoms which led them to believe something wasn't quite right, leading them to run to a doctor.

Only to have their worst fears realized.
