People who don't shower after sport

Like all these five a side bio-hazards who come straight to the pub in their sweaty stanky football gear, or disgusting mamils who clog up coffee shops with their tiny lycia clad package on display, or, possibly worst of all, city types who play squash at lunch and get straight back into their work clothes.

 

WTF is wrong with these people? How can you be brought up so antisocial and unhygienic?

It does Laz. Talking from personal experience of 1. One of my local pubs, 2. various cafes that have been infected with cycling aunts and 3. my central london sports club.

M8 don't take this wrong way but are you... American? 

Rank people who cycle into work is deffo a thing.  Worked with one guy who cycled in clapham to canary wharf and spent the first hour of his day in full cycle gear slowly perspiring down from beetroot to light strawberry before going for a shower.  Ghastly.

Worked with one lateral who had been a full cutie cugger for years at an MC firm before forced retirement and taking a job at my shop on a ridiculous guarantee.  He was appalled at having to work in the open plan and so hung his sweaty gym kit and towel on the partition.  It was 2 weeks b4 he got his own office.  Fair play - grandmaster move there

I can't really see a problem with this as long as they're just going for a social drink after the sport. Do you expect them to all go home and shower and then reconvene for beers or coffee?

That is revolting.

It is acceptable not to shower after surfing. Also pissing yourself in your wetsuit is fine.

But not showering after a workout is utterly gross

Alfred Wainwright used to go into work on Monday morning having slept overnight in a barn or bothy. People were less concerned with this kind of thing 70 or 80 years ago it seems - either that or he had a big office to himself.

As a man who has done sport for weeks at a time without shower I'm fairly tug lite about this.  The bigger issue with office lycra wearers is seeing someones meat and two veg bouncing around first thing in the morning.

This isn't so bad IMO.  If you are a thoroughbred athlete like me with a high metabolism, jumping in the shower straight away is pointless as you'd be a-sweat within minutes of getting dressed and you'd end up stinking the office out all day.

sails presumably you are talking about being on a boat with other people who don't shower either, which isn't the same as what the OP is talking about.

Sitting near someone in an open plan office who doesn't have decent hygiene habits for whatever reason is vile. 

Perhaps people are conscious of the fact that too much care for the body can create a superficial mind and they wish to avoid such a pitfall. Every day the person concerned  could wash another seventh part of his body and therefore need to take a shower only once every fortnight. 

It all depends, doesn't it. Drinking in the Clachaig Inn after a day on the Eonach Eagach without showering, fine (as long as you haven't sh*t yourself, tbf). Spending all day in an otherwise pleasant smelling office without showering after cycling in, hmmmm....

(Girlfriend/boyfriend/spouse not showering between gym and bed, definitely fine.)

People had no better personal hygiene 40 years ago pre decent showers. The smellies are now the cyclists. But office bods are probably in closer proximity now, so the smellies stick out. Aside of that, it’s just rude to rock up to work sweaty ffs. Does anyone really care?

Once had a bloke shave his balls in the (male) communal showers.  Watched his short and curlies drift past my toes before clogging up the drain.  I didn't hang around for longer than necessary.

Also pissing yourself in your wetsuit is fine

Pissing in a skinny wetsuit is fine.  I was once on dive in an 11mm wetsuit I borrowed off an army guy who was leading the dive.  30m down I needed to go and had no choice...  Humiliating when I got back up and was rinsing it down.

Going to a cafe during or after a cycle is fine but in the summer would sit outside?

I sweat so much in the gym or out running I can smell it (ugh, sorry) while I am still working out and if I am doing one exercise thing then another I have to even go and wash my face and neck between times. My hair has to be washed after every gym session as well, I dont know how other women just tie it up in the shower.

Even mid winter frost on the ground I run outside in just a vest and leggings and STILL sweat.
