    It's not 5 minutes here it's 'just as soon as I...' Finish watching this show, texting a friend, spend 20 minutes in the toilet pretending he's not playing on his phone, have a nap, get to next weekend, get sick of being nagged about it.

    Usually it means 'Just as soon as you start doing it, I'm going to leap to my feet in outrage because I was just about to do it myself! Never mind that you've asked 3 times today and I've shown no signs of doing it yet.'

    Yep, my DH has been known to go out into the garden for 5 mins and come back inside an hour and a half later!

    Mine is pretty good-if he's just woken up it's a cigarette plus loo stop long, this drives me nuts sometimes but then I think how long my 5 mins are and don't grumble too much 🙊

    DH's 5 minutes is 5 minutes but if he doesn't give you a time, all bets are off. If I send him to the shop (2 min drive) while I'm cooking to grab something I forgot, he might be half an hour. I seriously don't know what he does. He's banned from cooking dinner in weeknights because he starts cooking at 6:30 and we don't eat till 9. It really is amazing.

    Can I just say every time I scroll down and see this thread all I see is "how long is your partners.." Then i scroll down one more line and see "5 minutes". Do you know how disappointed I am EVERY SINGLE TIME!

    I'm sure that would get closed faster than a pair of legs after the kids walk in catching one mid coitus.
