How Long Do You Take To Get Ready?

Wed Apr 26, 2006 10:05 pm

I'm sure many guys get irritated by how long a woman takes to get ready to go out, but how long do you take? I usually take about 40 minutes in the morning from getting out of bed to getting in my car, which includes showering, shaving my head, getting dressed and packing my laptop. In a hurry I can do it in under 30. WHY do women take so long?

Then there's "I've got nothing to wear!" WTF?? We live in a 3 bedroomed house with fitted wardrobes in each bedroom, it's only the two of us and there's not enough space for my clothes!
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

I have the same routine if it's going to work or going to a formal function.

Either one of the above can be accomplished by myself in 35 minutes. This includes doing my "thing" in the toilet, brushing teeth, shower, getting dressed and a light bite to eat.

No problem.

I really don't know. I am in the habit of telling my wife when we need to get out of the house......this deadline is now padded with 15 minutes.

I may to increase it by 5 minutes. Ridiculous.

Sorry to contradict your theory, but it takes me 30-35 minutes to get ready for work every day.  Silly

I usually take longer when going out on weekends, but I'm constantly checking the clock to be ready on time.

I can get out of bed, shower, shave and be out the front door in less than 15 minutes, I have my clothes that I just throw on whatever, and go to school, although if I wasn't in school and had to go to a job it would probably take a bit longer.

Quite often i will shower the night before i go to work, or shower every other day...
This allows me on certain days (whilst rushing) to wake up, have a wash and be out the door inside of 20 minutes.

When i get ready to go out, i'm such a woman... it takes me like 40 minutes at least... Most of that time spent on my hair...

I wake up at 4:45 am, take 5 minutes to figure out where the hell I am, take a shower, grab some food, check and respond to email, check the baseball and hockey scores from the day before, brush teeth, get dressed, in the car by 5:30 am, at work by 5:55 am. If I cut out the computer stuff I'm usually out the door by 5:10 and stop by Dunkin' Donuts before work.

If you include the time from when my alarm goes off and I actually wake up...about 2 hours, otherwise 15-20 minutes, 30 if I haven't showered the night before.

wake up at 6:20, out the door by 6:30... shower the night before, use an electric razor on the way to work.

i would also love to know why women take so long. i've gotten into the habit of telling her i'll pick her up at 6, then show up at 6:15-6:20, and i still have to wait a good 5-10 minutes.

It's quite simple actually... shower the night before, pick whatever I am going to wear beforehand, take care of make-up after I have arrived at the office.

I usually take an hour to get ready from the time I wake up to the walking out the door. I spend too much time in the shower falling asleep under the hot water. I also catch up on my reading in the head before getting in the shower as well. If I could reduce those two items I would be down to 20 minutes or so but I enjoy taking my time.

Quoting Kaddyuk (Reply 6):

Won't do it for me. I must have a shower in the morning even if I took one the night before.

Quoting Texan (Reply 8):

That usually takes me about 10 minutes. I woke up a couple of weeks ago freaked out, held onto the bed, and proclaimed "I'm not in California. Where am I?" Made my wife laugh pretty good.

Shit, shower, shave and dress is what they meant

I hit the snooze button way too many times, which means I usually have to do a mad dash. It means turn on shower water, brush teeth, get in the hot shower, dry, grab protein bar, put clothes on, pack laptop and out in 15 minutes or less. I have a heavy beard, so I usually end up looking pretty scruffy.

I possess the incredible skill of being able to turn off the alarm clock no matter the volume without ever waking up. I have to put it somewhere far from the bed so I physically have to get up and turn it off. Once I get to the shower I'm ok and won't fall back asleep.
