The thrice daily Dhobi, is it normal...?

Unless you're doing PT twice a day why would you need three showers? One in the morning would be normal. Possibly one at night if you've been doing something particularly arduous or dirty in work. I would expect most civvies probably work on the same principle?

Although having had to 'have a quiet word' with more than a couple of lads in my life about whether they could maybe stand closer to the water when they have a shower and get a little more friendly with the camp laundry, I wouldn't be so quick to assume all squaddies even bother with a morning shower.

civvy here, and I have two showers a day, one before work and one when I get in. especially in the summer. something fellow users of london transport could do well to emulate, the smelly twats that some of them are.

My other half is still trying to come to terms with why I wash my socks in the shower with me at the end of the day. It's just basics.

It's not as if I sleep with them tucked in my arm pits anymore.

I shower every morning, regardless, even if I'm about to go to PT first thing. Then of course I'll shower after that, and when I worked on the tank park I'd shower at the end of the day too.

I shower 2x a day usually, can't stand going to sleep if I've been out and I have wax in hair or still smell of smoke. When I shared a room with a chap in China he mentioned that I wash too much, but due to the heat there how could you not shower 2x a day?

I went to bed last night after a night on the town and I still feel slightly wrong because I haven't showered yet...

On a flight last week I could tell the squaddies going on leave just by the smell of soap. Honest. civvies tend to smell of deodorants or B.O.
I'm not odd I just have an accute sense of smell. It's a curse!

Any chance you could use gas instead of water next time.

I seem to be having an awful lot of luck with women lately though, I wouldn't want to let them down. Just think of all that sex I'd be missing out on. Three of em now and all of them in their early twenties and they take it up the arse too! Just so you know... I mean you could be married to some ugly old bitch and sex for you might be a distant memory.

2012 might be a vintage year for dash.

Aussies think we brits are a filthy lot, call us in general soap dodgers because we only bathe or shower once a day,
but there again they also call Fosters Beer so it shows how much they know,

MERRY XMAS FOLKS!!!!!!!!

Kind of gets at the reason why I asked the question. Like others have already mentioned, I used to shower first thing, shower after phys and the shower after scran. However, sice leaving my shower and hygiene habits have changed and now I tend to shower twice a day. Problem is, is that quite a large proportion of our customers probably only shower once a week and as for changing or laundering clothes, maybe fortnightly. Even some that look "quite well to do" fucking stink.

Having rented a posh gaff in a nice area for six months, during trips to the sand, for once there's every reason to jump in the walk-in shower, as often as I fancy. Plus two washing machines, waiting for the Dhobi in the comfy lounge complete with three leather sofas and 50 inch screen.

Beats wrinkled, half clean Dhobi from the site laundry, and a dusty bunk/cubicle with black smelly water. So yes, seems perfectly reasonable to me ;)

Normally twice per day, but my record's five (5) times per day during one particularly vile summer. Fucking sub-tropical weather...anyone want to swap?
