Well that escalated quickly...
I thought this thread was about showering.... Lol.
My DH is also a tradie, he has to shower immediately when he gets home, he also hates touching our boys if he hasnt showered yet, but he's a plumber so gets pretty dirty!
He pretty much never misses a day of showering, even if he's exhausted. He hates getting into bed dusty and dirty.
My ex though... He wasn't a tradie, he worked in an office in IT, but wow, he would go literally weeks without showering AND without brushing his teeth. It was hideous. He was quite overweight and used to sweat a lot too... I was pretty blunt with him, more than once about how he smelt bad and needed to shower and especially clean his teeth, but it often fell on deaf ears. On the occasions when he did shower and clean his teeth, he was always so surprised that he felt so good... 😏 it was seriously like an event when he did this.
My husband works in a very physical job. He works long hours (7am-5pm) He's up at 5 am and often not home until 6:30. He comes home exhausted and covered in dirt. He still showers every.day. I wouldn't even let him sleep next to me if he hasn't showered and he certainly wouldn't be getting sex, especially after 2 days of no shower 😳 Yuck!
Wow there's tmi in this thread. Reading about showering, and then it turns in to a talk about blow jobs and dtd. What? Why?
