That's what pretty much what's happening to me now. I woke up 30 minutes late and when I get up to take a bath my house mate was already taking a bath. And I don't want him going to the bathroom first because he takes a bath very very slow. I think he's averaging 30 minutes per bath. Now I'm late. Well its also my fault since I woke up late. Have this also happened to you? Good day to all of you.

There was a time during my college life that I need to wake up at 4 am and take a shower already cause there were 40 people in our dormitory and there was only 2 bathrooms. There were also some who are very inconsiderate about the others that they take a bath longer than 10 minutes. I hate people like that!

I can relate to this. I also experienced this during my college days. I also lived in a dormitory and there are only 4 cubicles. So if we have early classes we make it a point that we wake up early. There are times that there are really long queue in the bathroom. And the most annoying thing that could happen is when suddenly there are no more water.

It hasn't been ever happened to me because I always see to it that I could wake up early to take shower early. I also think of my room mates time so i take it early that I can consume my real time of bathing.

It is so nice so when your house has more than one bathroom. I can't tell you how many times I was nearly late for school as a child because we only had one bathroom for the family to share. it always makes you wish to be an only child sometimes. I don't know why it seeems that every family member decides they need to use the bathroom at the same time.

Yes, it also happened to me. That's why i decided to rent my own apartment. Before i was just sharing room with my other friends. And there's friend of mine who uses the bathroom for an hour. And we have to wake up early, for us to use the bathroom or else we will be late. But not all the time i can, because my work requires overtime when peak season. So i wake up late, and wait for her.

It happened a lot of times to me, not with work though but with school. I use to share an apartment with my best friend in college. We have classes at the same time which start at 7 in the morning. Because of this, either one of us will get late in our classes. I'm the one who sleeps a lot which always made me late for my first class. It's kind of annoying when you only have one bathroom to share and you just have to wake up awfully early just to be the one to use it first. Although living with your friend is cool since you get to talk about a lot of things and do a lot of stuff. It's just that it irritates me to hell every morning when he gets to the bathroom first.

Yep it already happened to me. But since my work time is flexible I can go to the office a little bit late. But still it is really annoying to know that you'll be late just because of the queue on using the bathroom. Maybe our boss will laugh if we tell them that reason when we are late. :) In my case I've learned through that. If I have a housemate that takes a bath longer than expected, I will have to be earlier than him/her always. Else, I have to accept that I will be late if I din't wake up early. :)

That always happened to me. When i'm not in a rush to leave for work or meeting my friends, nobody in the house would be using the toilet. But when i'm really rushing, everybody in the family seems to be wanting a piece of the toilet! And because of that, i will make it a point to wake up even earlier, just for the sake of the toilet, and end up, waiting longer period of time for my friends, or reaching my office too early.

I take a lot of time in the bathroom, 30mins-1hr. I'm really meticulous that's why I really take my time when bathing. When I go out I make sure that I wake up or start to get ready 2hrs before. It sucks here at home because both my siblings also spend a lot of time bathing, so when I prepare to go out and somebody is bathing, I really run late. When I was living in a boarding house before, I make sure that I won't be affecting anyone's schedule when I take my bath.
