17 Reasons Shower People Are Right And Bath People Are Wrong

No matter how many bath bombs you throw in a vat of lukewarm water, you're still sitting in a stew of your own dirt.

1. First off, showers are way more practical and efficient than your average bath.

They're quick, no-nonsense, and you don't have to wait for them to run before you get in.

2. If you're showering in the morning, it's a way to feel fresh and ready for the day.

Can't really bath in the morning, can you? Unless you're prepared to be two hours late to work.

3. If you're showering in the night, it's the perfect cosy sleep aid.

4. Baths, on the other hand, are unnecessarily long and the reason your housemate probably hates you for spending so long in the bathroom.

6. And while they make you think baths are more luxurious, you're ultimately just sitting in a stew of your own dirt.

10. And if you shave your legs, you can watch the hair slip down the drain instead of sitting in your body hair water.

Seriously, how is that not an advantage?

11. While we're at it, bath bombs are a fucking nuisance as well.

Today I tried a bath bomb for the first time (shut up). Can't say it produced the most appealing bath in the world...

They're being taken way too far.

12. And at least showers retain their temperature. What the fuck is your lukewarm vat of water doing?

13. Singing in the bath is nowhere near as good as singing in the shower.

14. And drunk showering is apparently a thing, which is more than what I can say for drunk baths.

A drunken bath is probably a very, very bad idea tbh.

15. Sure, baths may be pretty relaxing, but the amount of bath bombs, oils, and candles you have to buy in the name of relaxation is way too much money and effort.

I'm not here to fuck around, I'm here to GET CLEAN.

Do not believe the lies of the bath fanatics.
