My new roommate showers up to 6 times a day. Is this normal? I shower once a day before bed. How would I go about discussing with her that splitting the water bill 50/50 isn't fair?
On weekdays she showers once in the morning for about 20 minutes. When she comes home from work she immediately showers. Before bed she showers again.
On weekends she showers once when she wakes up. Showers before she goes to the gym in the afternoon. Showers after the gym when she comes home. She'll shower again in the evening if she is going out for dinner with a friend or something and shower when she comes home. Shower again for whatever reason. Then shower again before bed.
When I lived alone my water bill was $60. Now the bill is $250. I don't think this is fair. How do I discuss this?
I'm not good with confrontation so I'd like a little assistance.
I keep my showers down to about 15 minutes and I hit the pause button on the shower head to shoap up and such. She will also shower up to 2 hours during her random evening showers. I think she just stands there and sings. Either way, this isn't fair.
>You take up too much water because you are showering all the day. Here, see the bills before and after you moved in.
>Your part is 190$, as you can see. If you pay for that, I am fine with the water bills. After all, I am the one paying it, you don't even have to care about the paper stuff involved with it.
If she refuses, you kick her sorry ass.
I'm mildly beta and afraid she'll retaliate and do something stupid. I've already told her she can't bring people over on week days and let people sleep on the couch and get drunk and that went over horribly.
>tfw half jungle blood
Lemme get in dat pussay
Surely you can't be serious!
And if I am?
Definitely not normal unless she sweats a lot or is in a field that involves getting dirty. Perhaps she is OCD? She might also be "water" type person (the physical sensation of water hitting her body is renewing to her) It might be better for her to take baths once or twice a day rather than to shower all the time. Maybe ask her to limit her shower time to one three or four minute song. Just be nice, and loving. She is your roomie and you have to live with her for a while, whether you like it or not.
We're all on a journey even if you don't know it
Well its not right for me to make any assumptions or ask her to not do something like shower. The best I can do right now is show her the bills and tell her she pays the difference every month, as another anon suggested. I even went so far as to calculate how much every 10 minutes in the shower costs. I might be autistic.
I think it's reasonable to split the water bill 1:2 or whatever part she actually uses if you provide documentation of the bills. Like, I always cook, and my housemate almost never cooks, so I clean the kitchen and don't expect her to. Fair is fair. If she doesn't fess up to this, she's immature. You could also run a stopwatch on how many minutes a day she is in the shower. She might not realize how bad it is, but having a number to tell her could open her eyes. Also, mention showering that often is bad for her skin, anyway.

That is kind of dickish of you. My 'mates have people over all the time and so do I. The understanding is as long as they don't wake me up, they can do whatever the fuck they want.
Stop talking about how fucking beta you are. Man the hell up, grow a set of nuts, and fix the problem. You whine and whine about how beta you are. well fucking do something about it, you pissy little child. Your defective personality annoys me more than shower-wrinkled girl.
