Okay. As it is confession time...
I've been raised to wash at least once a day (as a matter of fact, I'm just out of the bath tub right now, in a clean night er shirt and boxer matching the cleanliness of the fresh clean bed sheets
To my utter disgust, I discove a few months after moving in with a new roommate (yeah, a few months, cause we don't have exactly the same schedule) that he would have a shower only every other day, sometimes seldomer than that !
And while I have at least one heavy load of laundry per week (actually it's more like three loads every three weeks
), he just fills half a machine every 2 ~ 2.5 weeks. I've even had to forbid him to sit on my couch after a summer afternoon of golf (and take a shower before comming to dinner, puleeaase !)
And you wonder why we Frenchpeople have that kind of reputation... Believe me, there are just a few like him, most of the French are like me !!!
Now, on the other hand, another friend of mine (French too) will have at least two shower per day. Even after a winter night, when he washed himself right before going to bed ! Now, that I find a tad excessive.
