Default Who really needs 40 bottles of crap in the shower?

I mean really, the various bottles in my shower look as though someone went through the produce section of the local farmers market, and then bottled it all up and stuck it every place they could find in my freaking shower. What could you possibly need that much crap for?

I have no problem with a bottle of shampoo, conditioner, face wash, body wash, and shaving cream (I highly encourage shaving cream), but come on, there is no need for all this other crap. Beyond that, who is the person that came up with the idea that mango extract & essential orchid oil needed to be mixed together anyway.

Personally I only require a bottle of shampoo and a bar of soap, and it appears that there isn't even room for those. Anyone else have this problem? I am at this point in time trying to figure out if I have room for a dedicated man shower.

oh, the inspiration for this post comes from the huge bump on my head that was caused by being hit in the head by a unexpected falling bottle this morning at 5am while still mostly asleep.

Whats worse, my girlfriend is only up on weekends.

When I was a kid I stayed at my grandparents. At showertime I asked grampa where the shampoo was? He said "in the soap dish"!

The ol' man used only a bar of soap in their showers - no shampoo at all! You could never tell the difference in his appearance either.

That is definitely not an option, a better storage solution is the only thing I can hope for. I am not about to make my only source of getting laid mad over a petty thing like that.

Ask once politely for her to find a better storage solution, then throw it away if she doesn't. If you don't start now, it sure isn't going to get better if you eventually move in together.

I might have you beat here. My grandfather would only bathe in the river at his riverhouse. Bar of soap only. Something about vitamins in the water.

I once saw him try to plug a hole in his gas tank with a bar of soap. I think the same soap he bathed with.

A bar of soap was the duct tape of that generation!

I have one question for ya. Do you like the end result of what all these products do? I mean, does she look good to you? If the answer is yes, then I would let her have whatever she wants to take care of herself.

Absolutely, I just don't like getting attacked in the head by random bottles at 5 am when I am attempting to wake up enough to make the 45 min ride to work.

1 Wife + 1 13yr. old daughter + 1 20 yr. old daughter (when home
from school) = 25 + items in the shower. And don't even get me started
on all the crap on the vanity. You can barely get to the sink. I gave up
years ago trying to figure out why or to do something about it. I'm outnumbered.

Resistance is Futile!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

my sister recently moved back to nc from miss, so her and my niece staid her for a couple months while looking for a decent place to live..
it got to the point i couldnt turn around in the shower without knocking something off one of the small ledges in the shower wall....i never took a count of the bottles of stuff, but ide say 20-30 sounds about right, infusions of this....extracts of that......seems like some fairy is sitting in a room somewhere coming up with names for all this crap........lol, i danced naked in the street the day they moved out !!

I know what you mean, my wife has little baskets full of that crap sucktion cupped to the tile walls. About once a week, in the middle of the night, one lets go and crashes into the tub causing me to reach for my gun.

On top of that, I went to take a shower the other day and there was NO SOAP!...none in the cabinet either. Had to go down to the other bathroom and steal the bar from there.

Autobaun70, I see now my last post was made about the same time you explained why you were bringing this up.

Time to Negotiate with your girl friend before she becomes a wife . Here is one I used early on when something in the bathroom peeved me .

I would tell her if you like to see the toilet seat in the down position when I am done taking a pee, then maybe you could work on ........................ say removing some of the ump-teen bottles from the shower ( for example).
Women hate the toilet seat up, their ass will usually fall right thru if left open.
It may work unless you do not have the toilet seat rule going on at your place.

If you build yourself a seperate shower, she's going to consider the other one her personal territory. You would be trespassing in your own house if it gets used between her visits. lol.

Do you have room to install a small vanity, or another "medicine cabinet" in that bathroom? Who knows, she may think that's so sweet she'll park all her notions in there.

Good luck!

At the risk of making a serious contribution to this thread, you may want to try something like the PO had installed on my boat. It's a refillable dispenser for soap, shampoo, conditioner, and maybe one or two other things I can't remember.

You just press the button for whichever you want, and the thing hangs by the shower head against the wall. I've never seen one in a store, but it works pretty well.

Put all her crap in a basket and make her tote it in and out of the bathroom or put it under the sink. I had a GF that wanted to leave all her crap behind and I just got a dollar store basket and threw her crap in it if she didn't. Took about two weeks to train her.

... and if someone is gonna be a smart@.. and say thats why its ur X... I kicked her to the curb
