Weekly Whine: Women are slow

Seriously, why do women take so long to use the bathroom?

Being a woman myself, I really don't understand it. I feel like when I am waiting for a woman to get out of the bathroom, I am just waiting forever. Whereas two or three men will come out in that period of time. What takes so long???

You'd think since they take so long, they would at least be able to clean up the urine splashes I find on the seat like 1/3 of the time.

I think I must take less time to use the bathroom than any other woman. I'm the only woman who gets out before my husband. I wash my hands, I swear.

  1. i am a woman, i don't understand either, i am guessing it takes them a minute or 2 to put the cover paper on the toilet seat.

  2. I agree about it taking forever! I'm a fast pee-er so I guess if you have a nervous bladder it might take longer?? And I never cover the seat with toilet paper in most bathrooms... And that would take forever to do! (As an aside, I love your weekly whines). :-)

    2. Well that's a bummer. I enjoy reading your weekly rants too because misery loves company.

  3. I don't get it either. However, at least women aren't as slovenly as the men. Have you ever seen the inside of a men's bathroom? Disgusting.

    1. so my husband went into a women's bathroom once and thought it was the most disgusting bathroom he's ever seen...I've seen plenty of REALLY gross women's bathrooms. I think they may be equal.

  4. YES!!! This is me too. I mean seriously like my in-stall time is maybe 60-90 seconds tops. Drop drawers, pee, wipe, pull up drawers, visual check of lid for splatters to clean, flush with foot. Done. leave stall and wash hands. It's not that hard.
    It's happened more than once that when there's a long line for multiple stalls I'm in and out and the person behind me uses my stall because no one else's has opened in that time.
    *shrug* I've been baffled by this too.

  5. I beat my husband out of the bathroom a good 50% of the time (assuming no line). I also don't understand!

  6. Here's why I take so long in the bathroom. I place the liner on the toilet. It falls into the toilet. I put on another liner. It falls into the toilet. I put on another liner. It falls into the toilet. I put on another liner, it gets propped up by all the liners that had fallen in the toilet so it stays. I unzip my skirt, pull down my stocking then my um...drawer. I turn around and find the stupid liner had sunk down into the toilet. I put on another liner and sit down. I do my business and wipe. I flush. The liners do not go down with the flush. I wait for the water to fill up then I flush again. Fine, I take a long time. But men don't have to sit down. They can just unzip without unbuttoning their pants. Their underwear has a slit already there for easy access. And they don't need to wipe for #1--Just a flick of their umm....wand and that's it. And most of them don't wash their hands. All in all, men win when it comes down to getting out of the bathroom fast. Haa haa...

    1. I have never used that paper liner in my life. If you are wearing pants or shorts, you can use that to rest your legs on. Much easier.

    2. I don't understand what you were saying here. You only pull down your pants a little bit and then let the back of your pants touch the toilet seat?

    3. why use those liners? I also never use them...if there are drops, I'll wipe it before I sit & if I feel skeeved out I'll hover. I think those things are wasteful even if just using one, and it sounds like you go through like 5-6 every time you pee?

    4. I just squat over the toilet - bonus, I'm also getting a thigh/butt workout. But seriously, using that many toilet liners each time is awful for the environment.

  7. A lot of the time the flush will send spray up onto the seat. Pretty counter-productive but that's usually why there's pee on the seat.

  8. Because a quarter of women at any time will be bleeding so there's pads, tampons and cups to pull out/change.

  9. And eventually, after you have kids and a few years go by, it will take longer because the ole bladder just won't be as elastic and obedient to your will....

    1. I thought that just happens with men. As I get older, and have given birth twice, the opposite seems to happen to me. Get me to the bathroom ASAP!

  10. Maybe it's the only place, a public bathroom, where these 'long pee-ers' can have a moment of peace without kids, hubby, doing things for others, etc.?
    I don't know, I get it done and get out.
