What the heck is my son doing in the bathroom for an hour?

What is he doing in there? He is in the bathroom for an hour. How much time does he need? A teenage boy does not have much to do in there for an hour. I thought girls were suppose to take up all the bathroom time. My goodness. Do you have this problem at home? Can't get in the bathroom. Boys do not have much to do in there do they? I guess I'll have another cup of coffee and wait.

Hmmm...lemmesee, as far as I could remember,when I was a teenager and even until now I always use the bathroom the shortest time possible unless it was a jacuzzi in there except when I had other personal things to do, like ahm, anyway that's the point, I guess it's personal.hehehe!

My goodness! I see why he is in there so long! It will teach me to ask! oh I did not want to know that! The obvious of course. I think I need another cup of coffee so I can think better. I should have guessed that!

Well I am not sure what teenage boys do in the bathroom to take up so much time but here is my guess. Maybe he is looking for facial hair, flexing his muscles to see how he looks, making mean faces in the mirror and saying are you talking to me punk huh?, popping zits, who knows what goes on behind that closed door.

Glad that it made you laugh. The mental picture I got was pretty funny, I could just see my oldest doing that.

My 11 year old takes 45 minute showers. I think he mostly plays around, because he still looks like a goof and always forgets behind his ears and between the toes and stuff like that. But some guys do worry about their looks and have to make sure their hair looks a certain way. I've got 4 boys and 1 girl, so hopefully as they get older my boys won't be the type to hog the bathroom, otherwise nobody else will ever get in there. I'll have to schedule particular days for each child to have the bathroom in the morning, lol.

Ha ha ha LOL... why not install secret cameras?? LOLz.. really funny!! ha ha ha sorry, I am laughing so much, but dear honey, we are in the same boat. In my case, it is my brother. Spends two hours in the bathroom with the tap on and sings at the walls. Does you son sing too? You say he is a teenager? Perhaps he is the macho type? Then he must be admiring himself. Why not construct another bathroom; otherwise you might end up drinking too much coffee. LOLz Cheers and give you son my warm regards!

dunno if I am allowed to say this or how to make the comment for adults eyes only, but when I was a boy I would sometimes take a long time in the bathroom because I was errrr... pleasing myself in *that* way to use a euphemism - so best not ask him I guess!

Okay. I am just going to laugh and not say what they are really doing in there. Did you really just ask what a teenage boy was doing in the bathroom for so long? I am sorry. I just find it funny.
